River Pointe

I played the Red / White rotation at River Pointe on 10/16. I’ve only played here once before and from what I can deduct the Red nine is the oldest of the three nines with the Blue being the newest. I never played the Blue course but from what I can tell it looks in excellent shape. The Red and White courses present challenges with some dogleg holes that you will need to know your “carry” yardages and where to aim your tee shot. While the Red course was not in as good shape as the White, it was still fun to play. My favorite holes, between the two nines, would be Red #8 & #9. They are working on the Red & White courses. The greens rolled true and had a good pace to them. The bunkers were also in great shape. The staff was very friendly and professional. I would go back.

Ask not to be put on Red course

This place has 3 separate 9 hole courses. Blue, white, red. I've played the blue and/or white a few times this year but yesterday was asked to play the red for my back 9. While the white and blue courses are in pretty good shape, challenging and fun to play the red course not so much, it's beat up and needs work everywhere. Tee boxes are beat up and greens are in need of watering. There is obviously repairs needed on the red course and seem to be in the process of doing so with trenches for irritation repair open and being worked on. Maybe in the future the red course will be as nice as the other 2 but for now isn't worth paying to play on. Facilities and staff were nice and friendly for the most part.

Red Course

This club has 3 nine hole configurations, Blue, White, and Red. The Red is in significantly worse condition than blue or white. The only way i would recommend this course is playing the blue/white rotation. It was quite nice.

Excellent Course!

I'm not too picky when it comes to courses, but this course played very well and was very well kept! The rough was reasonable, the greens were in great shape, and the fairways were great. Overall, I would highly recommend this course to anybody.
