What A Wet Mess!

I had not played the Riverside golf course in over ten years, and at times during this morning’s round I remembered why. It’s a somewhat quirky layout, with back-to-back par threes and par fives, with some short, very drivable par fours, but these characteristics were not a problem. What was an annoyance, though, was the amounts of standing water in most of the fairways and bunkers on the front nine. I realize that it’s been an extremely rainy spring and early summer here in Central Texas, but we’ve had no significant precipitation in the past couple of weeks, and the four other local courses I’ve played during that period had no such extreme storm water drainage issues. I lost at least five balls in the middle of the fairways because the sheer depths of the standing water made it impossible to see the ball to retrieve it.

The back nine is apparently better-drained than the front, and is a much better and more interesting course layout. However, there were still several bunkers that were either very damp, or, like the front, had deep standing water in them. But, if I could have played the back nine twice, and completely avoided the first nine holes, this would be a much more positive review of this historic course. Still, I felt like I got my money’s worth, having paid only $31.00, with cart, for a mid-morning tee time.

And, I’m certain to play this course again in the future, once we return to a somewhat more normal weather pattern, and when there won’t be small lakes in the fairways. Except then, we’ll probably head to the other extreme, and we’ll be complaining about dried- out, rock hard fairways and greens.

Excellent condition

As a result of decent rains this year and the grounds crew, the course was in excellent condition. Almost felt like a private country club course except that the greens and fairways were more forgiving. Friendly staff at the course as well.

Nice Layout

Course in nice condition overall. Greens a little rough on front 9 but very good on back 9. Fairways nice shape overall, some wet areas to be expect with amount of rain the past weeks. Try to make sure sand bottles are filled before you start play. We had two bottles both basically empty when we went to refill our divots on fairway.
would have been nice if we had sand in them.
Otherwise, very enjoyable round, will be back.

Greens need to improve

The greens are chewed up. The course management needs to improve; it took more than 4hrs 45 minutes to complete 18 hole round . Extremely slow

Better than expected

Other than a few greens and tees being a little bare, course was in good shape. Kind of a strange layout with bac to back par 3’s and 5’s but a good mix of holes. Enjoyed our day!
