River Oaks Golf Course, located in the South Valley of the Jordan River Bottom Area, is a challenging course where golfers can often have some wildlife encounters. The course offers beautiful scenery featuring plenty of trees and water, adding both beauty and challenge. The links-style golf course has a good variety of shots with some fairways that feature thick cuts of rough. The water that is present on the course is creates very tricky water hazards that come into play on some holes. The 14th hole is notable difficult. The River Oaks Golf Course facility also has an enormous driving range with natural grass.

Good winter golf

Good day for winter golf. The Rate/Slope at River Oaks would indicate the easiest course in the county. I rarely see anyone score below 90. On this day playing partners were 100+ with a dozen balls lost.
Also, front tee Drop Zone on #3 hole is needed.

Playing partners we were paired with complaining how hard the course and that always lose to many balls. They played the blue tees. The shot mid 90’s.
Play the tee that matches your game and have more fun.

Play the correct tees, please

If you can’t break 90 every single round, play the White Tees out here.
For years I’ve watched struggling golfers play the Blue tees, because there are Black tees, and they proceed to lose at least a dozen balls per round. Amazing.

Great fall round

River Oaks GC is a challenging course despite its seemingly short length which is due to narrow fairways, trees, and lots of water hazards; the layout makes you think on every hole and strategically consider your line and locations on many shots; the pace of play was fantastic because of the fall weather which was cooler than normal and threatened of rain which never transpired; the staff has been exceptionally friendly and accommodating, and the course was in excellent condition; I look forward to another round, hopefully, before the season ends.

Great course. Can shoot low scores, but be careful if you try to use your driver on the holes that have a big risk versus the reward

Let us know about the punch and sand first.

Front nine puts you in your place. If you can harness your double bogey self loathing, the back nine has a lot of birds available.

Another fun round

River Oaks GC is a course that poses unique challenges with plenty of risk and reward; the course overall was in very good condition with only a few fairway spots that were played with a bump rule, but not many; the pace of play was fantastic despite our slow group, but we were not hindered nor did we hinder any other groups; it was very enjoyable and pleasant which makes it a great course that I enjoy playing.

River Oaks

Played in just over 4 hours. Front 9 had typical slow slow start. Made up time on the back.

#1 hole needs to have the left side opened up, take the sage brush out the first 250 yards or paint it Red for a drop or have local rule to take distance on drop.

#2 hole needs the Russian Olive tree trimmed or taken out on the Blue tee box.

#3 hole needs all of the cattails taken out around the green, the hole would excellent visually.
