Great Course

The course was in perfect condition. It appears that a good amount of their bunkers were recently renovated- they were filled with beautiful crushed limestone. The greens were soft but rolled fast. I can't wait to get out on their course again soon!

Slipping?

I’ve played river glen 3-4 times per year over the last several years and have always enjoyed my round. It’s a good course.

This was my first time playing here this year and the greens seem significantly more beat up this year than previous years. Not only ball marks (not sure what, if anything can be done about that) but numerous previous cup locations had not healed as well as other area courses at a similitude price point. # 7 immediately comes to mind. I like the added bunkering!

Great Course

I love River Glen. The course is challenging, but fair. It is very well maintained and is beautiful along the White River. Excellent value for the money and puts a lot of private courses to shame.

Great local course

I've lived close to this course for 3 years but this is my first time playing. This course is local, fairly easy with a couple of challenging hole, quiet and nice layout. 7 minutes between tee time looks a bit too close, but there was not many people out there due to wet weather. I am willing to come back, but $55 per person seems a bit pricey for this course.

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.
