Riverside Golf Course
Riverside Golf Course is located on the northwest side of Janesville near the Rock River. Opened in 1924, it is one of the oldest courses in the area and over the years it has earned the reputation of being one of southern Wisconsin's best public courses. The course has also been recognized as one of the 50 best public golf values in the country. The gently rolling hills of the landscape provide the course with rolling, tree-lined fairways and large, undulating greens, which are framed by strategically placed bunkers. Riverside is a challenging course but not so difficult that beginners should be intimidated. The classic layout is quite forgiving and versatile enough for a range of skill levels, one reason why it is the host to the Ray Fischer Tournament, one of the Midwest's most prestigious amateur events.

Unique Holes with Design Variety
I last played this course about 35-40 years ago. Still in great condition with hole variety. My only concern was that the greens were rather bumpy and slow.
Best municipal course in the area
Not that there are many municipal courses in the area, but this course is the bees knees. Always fun to play and is so easy to walk 18 holes.
A Bit Early To Be Aerating Greens
It seemed a bit early for the greens to have been aerated. Impossible to putt well with the ball bouncing on its way to the hole. In my experience most courses aerate their greens in the Fall. It's still late Summer.
Played it for the first time today. It was just aerated, so we all know that’s a bummer. I will be back to play this several times. It’s not an incredibly long track but if you’re not accurate off the tee you’ll be in for a long day. Staff was friendly,, course was in good shape, and I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Bring your bunker A game, you’ll probably need it!

First time playing this course and was very pleased. The fairways are in great shape. The greens are fast and roll smooth. Would love to return and play again.
Unable to play due to physical illness (left eye infection) and no refund from GN bc hot deal was booked.....
Stupid policy that needs to be reviewed especially due to physical illness cancelation...
