First Time Playing

Everyone is in the PGA?

I played with two nice young guys there was a foursome in front of us playing from the Blue tees. Three of the four of them were hacking away and looking for their first balls near the women’s tee box etc. Food for thought move to the WHITE tees like the rest of us. They completely had course backed up

Over booked

Course was over booked and had to wait in line for 30 minutes and carts were out of battery and had to change twice to get going. I couldn't play 18 holes due to poor logistics.

Loved the course and should have been maintained well.

Aeration

The aeration closed the back nine, and it looked like the front had just got finished that morning. Greens were basically unplayable. Very bumpy. Not worth the $36 today, but can see it being a nice course when not having just been worked on.

Nice Place but plan on a long time

If you like to wait 5 minutes or longer for every single shot, then this is the place for you. I don't know why the pace of this course is so slow ... but after a while, it gets to be really aggravating. The guy we played with had to leave after 9 holes because it was getting too late for him. Otherwise, it is a nice course, nice layout, and the greens and fairways were in really good condition. The course is dry on the edges but what course isn't in Indiana right now. Dollar hot dogs were great!

Bad Pace of Play

They seem to consistently overbook tee times so the pace of play is REALLY slow. That's the only knock on this course.

Unfortunate Rushed Game

My foursome showed up to a double booked 3:15 tee time. We were told on hole 2 that we needed to “hurry up” and play quicker. It was unfortunate that my beautiful day of golf turned into us all skipping a hole completely (suggested by the employee who greeted us on hole 2) in order to compensate for the course's over scheduled day. There was an outing at the same time that we were not a part of. I had been to this course 3x in the past month with no problems but this particular round was one of the worst. A true waste of my money for the group/company.

River Glen used to be a nice course but poor management and horrendous grounds keeping has turned it into a goat ranch. Don't waist your time and money!

Great Course

Love River Glen. It is a challenging course and is in excellent condition. The practice facilities are top notch and the various Tee boxes offer all levels of golfers a challenge. Will come here again and again!
