My grandson joined me for 9 holes - front 9.

Beautiful fall colors (several balls lost on holes 6 - 9, probably under a pile of leaves). We were middle set of 3 2-some a and found ourselves waiting particularly on #4 - 6. A female 2-some came up to us on #7 tee box looking for #5 - but hey, I’ve gotten off track myself on other courses! The bridges and tee boxes were in pristine condition. Beautiful, challenging front 9. I’ll book it again!

Great course-but spinklers on!

Fantastic course-great topography and very scenic. Sprinklers were on during play and had to play around them.

Slow great course

Great course just always takes 5 hours to play. No need to book tee times so close. Get rangers out to help with pace when needed. Price isn't bad. Some greens could use help. Just please find a way to speed it up

Nice layout

The layout is nice. Good variety of holes. The course was pretty well maintained. Staff was nice. My only quibble is the pace of play. If you get stuck behind one of the geriatric groups…as I did…it is going to seem like it takes forever to play the course.

Cmon river glen!

I have played this course about once every month or two over the last three years. It’s convenient and was priced right and the staff is good. Over the last yearish there has been a perceptible decline in the condition of the greens. I understand that the course probably gets a lot of play and there are a lot of jerks out there that don’t do their part, but there also a lot of poorly replaced cups. At this point it’s more like a $45 course instead of a $60 course.

Great course with amazing views

The course itself was amazing and had good challenges and was well taken care of. I am certainly coming back to golf there. The only downside (which is no fault to the course) the group of 4 in front of me were playing multiple balls from the tee and held up myself (1-some) and another 4-some.

Even after the heavy rain fall the course played well with little water visible. Can’t wait to play this course against

The course does not drain real well as it is low. The greens were not as good as in the past. They should put sand on the carts for divot repairs as there were a number of unfilled divots.
