Everything was pretty good at that price point. I would still like to see the greens faster but other than that no complaints..

Nice Course, Terribly Slow

River Run is a very nice public course. The rate is reasonable. The real issue is the pace of play and the failure of the course marshal to keep foursomes moving. At one point there was four foursomes on number 11, a par 5. This makes for a very slow round and since the day was hot, a long time out in the sun.

9 15 tee time but we did not tee off until 9 40. Big group of 16 ahead of us and there were some late comers. So that slowed it down. Is much play i think they get there the course was in good shape. Congrats to ground crew.

worth the price of admission

this was my first time playing RR so that upped the difficulty on some of the holes with blind dog leg shots, not knowing how far i could hit the ball without being too far and going through the fairway into trouble and not going far enough being able to get past the dogleg for a shot to the green. i really didn't like the fact that some of the par 4's take the driver out of your hands to play target golf. that being said the course was in good condition, greens nice overall, but sometimes inconsistent speeds. one green might be really plush and slower while another was slick and faster. the green fee of $20 made up for any shortcomings, so i would probably be willing to try it again.

Easy like Sunday morning

Very well organized and managed. Choose your tee box according to your handicap, play with your significant other and have a blast! Low handicappers will eat this up, but relax and enjoy, because the consistency from tee to green will please you.
Cheers

Too Picky

There were 4 of us playing, we had a 4 some in front and 3 behind us. The course was crowded since it is still tourist season. We lost a couple balls and the 3 some hit up on us which we ignored. We were headed to the green. The group in front teed off and were on their 2nd fairway shot. The Ranger drove up and told us we were 1/2 hole behind. I thought this was just not called for. The next hole the group in front lost a ball now we were waiting on them. I saw the Ranger hiding in back of some bushes watching us. Now this is just BS on the part of the Ranger. Too picky!!
