OMG

I played here on multiple occasions and this is the worst I've ever seen this golf course. Although they are repairing cartpath the restaurant and other amenities the greens and a key boxes were in the worst shape I've ever seen them in.

Wilderness

Some nice holes and good for all skill levels staff was great, but looks like some renovations around club house area... however, they should pay more attention to the course conditions , grass should be much better at this time of year but not much rain here lately...some greens and fairways inside very good condition but others horrible ,!!

Like playing in the desert

Course is by far in the worst shape of any I’ve played. Tee boxes hard as a rock. Greens missed one key element, grass. If you’re looking to just hit balls it’s ok but if you’re into working on your game or taking a client to golf this isn’t the place.

The Greens are in Big Trouble

The clubhouse is great, the staff is very nice and helpful, but the condition of the golf course is rough. The green conditions, especially the back nine were deplorable - several were dead and should be closed for repair.

Conditions continue to deteriorate

Thought we would give this course another try for a decent price for a midday tee time. The course is in terrible condition. The greens don’t even have grass left on them...and the fairways are pretty much dead grass. I know it’s the dry time of year but the fairways and greens should at least have a blades of grass that you can chip off of or putt on.

course is in trouble

The only thing this course was missing was goats and chickens walking around.Every green was dead , every tee box was all dirt. To start out there ice machine was empty no coller out there to supply ice on a 90 degree day there wasnt a beverage cart on the ourse. The fairways you had to look to find grass I know I will not go back to this course I would rather quit golf then have to play there

Great layout

I liked the layout of course, had me using several different clubs of the tee. It is in a nice residential area but homes are well of course so did not worry about hitting anything. Course is somewhat open so as long as you don't go in the water you can recover from errant shots. Tee boxes could use some work and greens had several bad spots but overall was a nice course to play. they have a decent practice area with range balls included.

The Club At River Wilderness

First time I played their since before Covid and the new ownership. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I wish the Greens were watered because they were in poor condition. Hard to putt when the ground is hard as payment. Not going back till that is corrected. Happy hour starts at 3 pm good bogo deals.

Needs work

I don't understand how a golf course can be so poorly maintained. A ten year old could figure out that more water would make grass grow. I hear there is new owners. I'll come back in a year and see how their doing.

Nice Layout, good practice facilities

The greens are in bad shape, this was not the case the last time I played here. Also the tee boxes on the back n
9 are in bad shape. Some are no way near level and some the grass is in bad shape.
Good layout and most of the fairways are in good shape.

Greens have been destroyed by a fungus or something. Fix that and this is a keeper in a big way.

In Bad shape

This is a great course that I have played several times. The course is in horrible shape. Many T boxes have no grass and several greens are dying out. Hopefully with some work they can bring the course back to what it was before or better.
