Get what you pay for

The course is really not in good shape. Greens are horrible along with the fairways. However, if you’re a beginner and a hacker, it’s perfect for honing your irons skills. Advanced golfers will hate it. The people working there are amazingly friendly and courteous. It’s a shame the course Doesn’t match the staffs Abilities And attributes.

Fun for the money

Rates are less than half any other course - you cannot expect manicured fairways. Also this is a par 62 course. Driver will not be needed often. Greens are good enough. Sand traps have sugar sand. Fairways and tee boxes are patchy but remember - you are paying a fraction of what the other courses charge! Staff is very friendly. Easy to get on during Spring Break. I would play any time!

Terrible at Present BUT Great Potential

I live near Riviera Golf Club, when I first moved here this was "my new favorite course" as I reviewed it in 2015. Over the past couple of years this course has deteriorated to the point of un-playability regardless of the golfer's skill level. Hurricane Irma made a drastic impact, as you may imagine, but prior to that catastrophe the course had been closed for several months with minimal upkeep. The course conditions we played yesterday, 9 November 2017, were horrible. From the first tee through the eighteenth green there was disappointment in all phases of the course conditions. The tees were one area of almost acceptable condition, the best kept playable areas were the bunkers on the front nine, however the bunkers on the back nine had not been touched since last June in my estimation. All greens were in a state of needing complete replacement. The saddest part of playing Riviera Golf Club was knowing what a fine course this was and could be again with proper ownership, care and experienced golf agronomy superintendent in charge. The layout is one of the best in the Naples area for executive courses, and is reminiscent of Pinehurst #3 in North Carolina. Truly it is a shame the current owner(s) have stated they never intended to operate a golf course and the decline of course conditions over the last two years duly reflect their statements.
There are several good executive course in the local area with much better playing conditions. I strongly urge you to patronize the other local public course and not waste your time and money at Riviera Golf Club.

Good Practice Venue

This was a fun couple of hours. The layout is not terribly challenging and we found the course to be in good conditions. Very slow greens early in our round (1pm), speeding up a bit later on. We finished in just over three hours, with minimal delays (one group invited us to play through). One short par 5, and a couple short par 4's, and the rest was mainly short part 3's. I'm normally a "bogey golfer," and I was able to improve on that by a couple strokes, front and back.
