Gorgeous Round of Golf

Riverwood is well maintained and the scenery is just great. Nice long par fives. Great fairways and we’ll kept rough. Even in the fall the greens are nice and tight.

The grill is amazing. Seriously good food and a great beer selection.

It’s busy and not cheap but definitely the best round of golf near me in Clayton.

Overall

Over all the greens were fast however the course was in good shape and very challenging. Could not have ask for a better day to play the weather was perfect and we will play again.
My minor complaint is with the snack bar and lack of a Mobile Cart on the course . We always grab a snack before we start and it has become a tradition for us to check out the sandwiches and hotdogs. I have to admit the selection was not worth the effort on this visit . With restrictions on bringing coolers on the course the snack bar could use some major improvement. This will not keep me from playing again it will just mean I will have to bring my own course snacks along.

Not impressed

Definitely not in a rush to go back. That kind of bums me out since I live nearby and was hoping this would be a good place to add to my rotation. I only played the Meadowlands 9 and decided that I had seen enough. There isn't a flat tee box on the course which makes teeing off an adventure. You should never have to tee off with the ball above/below your feet. Bunkers are hard dirt and not kept up.

Greens were in good shape and fast, but other than that I don't have much good to say about this place.

Good course

I'm a member so it doesn't cost me as much per round but for non members they charge a premium price ($70) for not exactly a premium course. It's usually in decent shape with good rolling greens, but not perfect by any means. Tee boxes can get pretty ragged out.

Friday afternoon round

Weather was perfect and it wasn’t over crowded. It would have been better if they had all 3 nines open. Got a bit backed up on the back nine.

Great 27 holes but watch out for member 5somes!

The 3 9s are all different and fun to play. Plenty to challenge from any tee. They do allow member groups of 5 and the pace of play suffers as does the overall experience. Even tho I paid in full online the pro shop still grilled me about payment. Not public friendly. Very clicky membership vibe. The "clubhouse" is just a claustrophobic repurposed farmhouse on a massive unused footprint. The food is awful. had to toss the burger after one bite.. This is a an excellent 27 hole layout but has too many negatives to make it worth the effort.

Great Course

My husband and I played the Meadowlands and Riverview course. My second and his first.time playing it and he loved it. The course brings beauty, challenge, and an enjoyable golf day. The pace was a bit slow since the slow insensitive players in front of us didn’t have the etiquette to let us play through but we still had a great time. Our scores were 86 and 88. Love these courses.
