Rating 72.9

River Oaks Golf Club stretches across more than 800 scenic acres along the Intracoastal Waterway. The club offers 27 holes that are divided into three nines, each named after the some of the wildlife that call the course home. The Fox, Otter, and Bear nines can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Fox/Otter Course begins with the shortest of the three nines and finishes with the longest. The final hole on the front nine presents one of the most interesting risk-reward opportunities on the golf course. You can aim for the right bunker for an open shot at the green or try a long drive down the left side for a short approach. River Oaks Golf Clubs' Otter nine has several challenges in store including mounding, strategically placed bunkers, and tricky water hazards.

Nice Course but cart paths need work

Played 18 today and workers were very friendly. Greens may have been airated recently because they were kinda sandy. Several cart paths were in pretty bad shape but mostly still drivable. Overall it was a pleasant round and I would play there again.

Great time

The first course played on vacation and I really enjoyed this course! Played Otter/Bear and both were in excellent condition. Greens played a little fast but nothing crazy. And the price was a bonus. Other than off and on light rain...this course is a win!

Not bad, but pace was slow and cart paths bad condition

A nice course. Nothing special. Pace of play was very slow and I had to skip ahead and miss 4 holes. Cart paths in bad condition. But fairly easy course and in good condition. Very friendly staff, especially the starter and the cart lad.

Mildly Average

Course was the epitome of average.

The Good: Decent layout. Fairways and roughs were fine. I really liked the carts and all the storage they had. Staff was helpful and enthusiastic.

The Bad: The greens were SO SLOW. I cant explain it. It was like putting in the fairway or on shag carpet. It was nearly unplayable. Greens were also small. Bunkers were bad and no rakes. We had a 5some ahead of us that slowed our duo play.

We paid $59 for two to ride. Not awful. But certainly not worth any more than that.

Good course for the money

My wife and I played the course for the first time. The staff was very friendly. Although it was busy we in less than 4 hours. The greens were in good shape, the tee boxes were in fair shape. We would definitely play this course again. .

Good resort type course

Nice course for seniors from the gold tees. Fairways are mostly ideal and the greens are smooth but a little slow for my taste. The only negative are the cart paths. They are extremely rough as well as the adjacent areas. Definitely need work.
