Penny Pinching Owner

Been awhile since I played this course. Now I know why.... Course has bare minimum in upkeep. Winter is here and the maintenance is no where to be found!!!!! Still has grass clippings from last cutting??????? Dead spots in fairway and greens are dried out??? They are more interested in taking your money than spending it on maintaining it?!?!?! Much better courses in the area than wasting your time on this one!!!! Also.... WOULD IT HURT TO GET A RANGER TO KEEP THINGS MOVING??????????????

Mismanaged

This could be a great course. Staff is nice. Positivity ends there. Tee times are irrelevant. They let anyone walk on and do not have a starter. It's chaos from the start. Cart paths broken everywhere. 90 percent of sandtraps are mud and dirt. Greens are average. Bumpy and inconsistent. Greens are sandy May thru August and I mean a lot of sand. Ponds are disgusting, green and look like a chemical spill occurred. You find a lot of rocky lies just off fairway. Average pace of play on weekends is about 4 to 5 hours. Mainly due to overbooking and mismanagement of start times and pace of play. Food is very good and inside has a nice bar area. 20 dollar course for 50. Have fun .

Great track if you drive well

Riverwood is designed for long ball hitters off the tee. Fairly wide open but plan to use most of the clubs in your bag. Greens were fast, but readable and friendly.

Perfect day for golf

Perfect day...70 degrees. Course is in incredible shape. Challenging, but fair layout. The greens were unbelievably fast as they were playing their club championship this weekend. Had a putt roll off the green. But, easy to read because the putts roll so well. Better give yourself uphill putts.

Not a Fan

I am not a fan of this course, First time playing and not impressed. The pace of play was very slow. It was a Monday. The cart paths were awful and need lots of work. It has 3 nine hole courses. We played Deer Run and Meadowland. Deer Run has water on every hole and steep rolling hills. The course is very pretty and scenic. The Meadowlands has little to no water, but it is very short. The greens were fast and challenging which are great, but the course just wasn’t any fun to play. Overall, I will not play it again.
