Great course not enough people know about.

This very well taken care of course offers an extremely fair layout for all levels of golfer. Lots of difficult tee shots from the back tees to easier shots off the forward tee box. The greens are what separate this course from any other in central Florida. Smooth running, quick and lots of break are how this layout is described by the locals. The staff is very courteous and always greet you with a smile and ask if you need any assistance. Green fees are average or a touch below what neighboring courses charge.

Enjoyable

We are visiting from the UK we first played River Greens last year and feel that the course has improved since then
Have played twice and enjoyed the course very much also the food in the clubhouse is really good value for money
The pro shop is well stocked and the staff are friendly and will give you their best green fee price

Good Condition

Highlands county golf courses go through ups and downs. Currently River Greens is one of the top on the list. The greens rolled nice and there was grass on the fairways.

In great shape!

The course is in excellent condition. The fairways were full and lush while the greens are in great shape. It was obvious that they have been watering both.

Just Ok but SLOW

The course was in Ok condition. This is a retirement community course and nobody is in any particular hurry to hit their next shot. I had read this in a previous review that was why I booked the earliest time Golf Now offered. I think it was around 8am? Still 5 + hrs. is too long for that time in the morning.
Also remember multiple holes are guarded by homes on both sides, so unless you can control that driver.... put it away.
Still it was a nice course.

It's a hidden gem

Although the front nine greens were under repair, we were given the option tho play the back side twice, which we attempted but got rained out after playing nine. The course was in very nice condition. The staff was excellent and very friendly. We will definitely be back.

Hidden Gold Mine

This place is great, the greens roled true nice view of the nature and the wild life. Most of the fairways were very tight so if you missed the fairway the rough was going to get you. The skys opened up on me around the 8th hole, it rained hard for about 20 mintues. I told myself i was done for the day,cus it was in the latter part of the evening however this place drained very well and finished the round on a good note. If you are in the Avon Park area stop by and play this course you will love it. It's kinda hidden off the road but you will enjoy it.

The course is in great shape.

The course is getting in better shape each time I play it. Tee boxes and fairways in great shape. Just a couple of greens need some additional attention, but getting better.
