Walked

It was a 5 and a half hour round. Not sure why. Also, I paid for a golf cart, but ended up walking because there were none available?? No refund on the cart was offered. Thankfully, weather and company were perfect, and I played well despite. I'll give it another try in hopes it improves.

Amazing turn around!

The greens have turned from half dead to darn near perfect in just a couple of years!
Fun course to play.

Sacramento gem

Love this course, even in a light but steady rain. It's right next to the Delta so you can g park on the levee under sycamores when you're done golfing.

Love River Oaks Golf Course

The main improvement that I would like to see are ball washers at least on some of the tee boxes.

River Oaks is a nice golf course

Not overly. We've managed to get specials to allow us to play more often. The course is in pretty good shape and the other golfers seem to be courteous. Ball and club washers would be nice.

Need a new course to play?

I have played this course a handful of times this summer. Found it through a friend.

If you are looking for a fairly straightforward course, but with plenty of right and left turns then this is a good one.

Places to go over the top for the high risk high reward shot are plentiful.

Could be my tenure on the planet, but hole 8 seems to always need an extra club.

Bunkers the only knock here. There are just the right amount of them and in just the right places, but they’re rocks and really you’d be within friendly rules if you pull it out. Seriously, I’m pretty by the book, but no. Trust me.

Greens are true. And some small and the others medium sized. But again, really nice here.

Around the greens for those of us often chipping to save it, all well maintained and good lies to reward a good chip shot.

Tees will make it a different course entirely like most courses. But even more here on some nicely treed holes.

Range is going to look underwhelming. So get behind it now. It’s truly to warm up your swing and body. Use it for that and then head over to Hole No. 1. A simple starting hole that you’ll want to par. So pay attention. Big open fairway doglegs right. I always aim toward the right tree line edge and almost never draw it back to the fairway. But over the trees is an awesome 2nd shot to make to an upward sloping green. So a GIR is almost certainly a par, and a good chip on a 3rd will leave you a good putt for par, too. Small green, for shorter hole so again, make it count right away.

Play it to score. Otherwise, what’s the point. Oh, 18… safe left on the dogleg right, or, go for it over the trees. The willow at the other end is remarkably short.

Play well.
