When I drive in to Riverwalk and meet the guys in the pro shop then go down to the starter booth everybody is so cordial and friendly they make you feel like family and you start talking to the golfers who are all very friendly and just happy to be at Riverwalk and that’s the way it was again today it’s a phoneIt’s a fun 4 1/2 hours of us golf course

Great course in San Diego to get a full 18 and feel like they are in the golf business. Well kept fairways and greens while the tee boxes could use some love.

We didn’t have any issues with pace of play but I think the Marshall could have hurried some people along because I didn’t see just about a fistfight over pace of play on the 10th

Worst customer service EVER

Went there for my first time and the gentleman that checked me in was super rude and couldn’t even find my tee time. I brushed it off and went down to the starter who didn’t even know my tee time even tho I gave him my receipt. I heard the guy in the pro shop radio him and let him know before I even went down there. Wouldn’t let me play with my group because I had a spectator with me even tho they told me it was fine. Course was all muddy and looked like they haven’t touched it since it rained. Played 3 holes they got told I wasn’t able to play with a spectator. Went to get my money back and they wouldn’t give it to me since it was 24 hours before my tee time. They told me I could play then pretty much robbed me.

Return to Riverwalk

Staff and services were very nice. The driving range experience was just fine. Walked 18 and should have taken a cart, especially not being too familiar with the course. Front 9 is in better shape and has excellent greens. There is a fair amount of ground under repair but it didn't impede play. Greens on the back 9 were somewhat uneven. But, looks like management/staff are doing their best. Enjoyed it!
