Course conditions

First time playing this course. The fairways are overseeded so there filling in nicely you may find a few thin lies. The bunkers are just O.K. there mostly dirt not sand but playable. The tees are good and really like the layout. The only problem I found is the greens are slow and grainy so they are a little bumpy. These are the first greens in the area that i played where the greens weren't real fast. Overall the course is worth playing.

Good Moderate Course

River Run was a good average course. Play was steady and the greens were fast. Fairways are typical for Florida public courses. Enjoyed the day there.

Way too crowded and slow pace of play. No rangers grouping the seniors together. Total mayhem.

Not bad for municipal

Overall value was ok. Courses miss the boat by not emphasizing their customer service. Greeting relatively weak, no offer to clean clubs. With that said, the course wasn’t bad for the price.

That was fast!

Early tee time on New Years day. Was paired with a regular. We whipped around in right at 3 hours. The staff was nice and welcomed me. My playing partner provided some local knowledge which was helpful. Course was in better shape than others I played this week for about the same price. Course is a bit shorter but par is 70. A lot of sharp dog legs to defend itself. I will be back.
