Ron Jaworski’s Riverwinds Golf & Tennis Club is situated along a scenic stretch of grassland between the banks of the Woodbury Creek and the deep harbor marina on the Delaware River. Its location gives it the feel of traditional seaside links courses found in Scotland and Ireland, which is further enforced by the sod-wall bunkers that lurk near the greens. The layout features plenty of water and incorporates the surrounding wetlands as well. One unique feature of the golf course is that the routing winds across a mile-long twisting burn, creating a visually interesting setting. Riverwinds begins with a gentle, mostly flat front nine but the mounding becomes more aggressive as you move onto the back. All of the holes face a different direction, which means you’ll most likely be using all the clubs in your bag to tackle the crosswinds and rugged terrain.

Great experience minus the ranger.

Great course. Greens were nice, fairways were beautiful, rough was good. Everyone was nice except the ranger. Ranger comes up to our group and was very rude. Tell us on the 14th hole to speed up our play and catch up to the group in front of us. Even though we were right with the group in front of us the whole round. Then tell us to keep our balls in the fairway to someone in my group. I guess we caught him on a bad day lol. But besides that everyone else was very friendly and nice and course was very good for winter golf.

A Decent Course

There are a number of interesting holes on this course.

A suggestion: Some of the holes are a bit too long from the seniors tee....such ase 360+ yards for a par 4.

Nice course, but few amenities

Great condition, beautiful course for fall. However, no driving range, no on-course snack shack/ permanent bathrooms/beverage cart for $100 on a non-holiday Monday morning is kind of ridiculous. Probably my last time playing for that price going forward.

Beautiful course!

I loved RiverWinds! Beautiful course. Fun layout. Very long course even from the White/Green which were together. Several par 4's were 430 and up. Greens were in perfect condition - lightning fast with a ton of break. Traps were in excellent condition. The views of the river are spectacular. Staff working the carts was less than friendly. Not helpful at all. Didn't tell us anything about where to pick up our cart and how to get to the first tee - which is a long drive away.

Jersey Golf?

I tried to treat myself to this golf course today. However, I was greeted with mediocrity. The bag attendant was rude. I was a single, but was not allowed to join 3somes of regulars. I was also not allowed to go to the practice putting green until right before my tee time. The greens were aerated btw, but nobody mentioned that. The proshop staff and starter were great. The course was in decent condition considering and had some great holes and views. Being from Vegas area, it was interesting that there was no option for drinks before 930am, and there are no coolers on carts and outside drinks are frowned upon. I ended the round with an employee off of the 18th green screaming profanities to another employee with no regard to the golfers. I would play the course again, but I will ask ahead of time who the staff is and I will make my tee time a little later.

And what a GREAT clubhouse to sit in after the round! It's called get in your car and leave. I can't believe they have the balls to charge basically the same rate as Bethpage Black. Jaworski is delirious if he thinks his courses will survive at those rates.

Nice Course! - Would Recommend

Nice course! Unfortunately was only able to play 9, so did not get to play the island green on the 17th which was a bummer. But course conditions were nice. Also, the gentleman at bag drop was very friendly and even cleaned our clubs upon returning from our round! Great place, can’t wait to get there for a full round!
