Great first time for a late fall round

This course is great, I started playing golf this year and have quickly fallen in love with the sport. Something I really enjoy so far is going anywhere I can to play and donate balls. Highlands has a great mix of holes and really fun to play. Play this course, book on golfnow for the best prices and easiest app to do so with. PLAY THERE ASAP

Leaves are falling

Very nice course but they need to do a better job of removing/ blowing the leaves off of the fairways and especially on the greens— very disappointed

Very nice

Thoroughly enjoyed this course.
Nicely laid out with some tight holes and some others with forgivenes.
Was in nice shape and the greens looked good.
I'll be back again and hopefully the three dickheads that we allowed to play through learn a little golf educate.

Grwat Value

Practice facility was packed and for some reason they restrict chipping to 1 small crappy green where some local hillbilly was chipping an entire range bucket. Actual course was good pace of play and nice condition. Play Gold to Red only, across the road 9 is short and not worth money. Gold to Red courses are great value for the money. Good greens, seems open but hole layout and angles require accurate shots from tee to green, fairways werent cut tight, a bit long so lose roll distance. Would reccomend to others.

Overbooked and no organization

The course: average condition. Its alright. Nobody fixes their ball marks on greens though, but fairways and rough were in pretty good condition. Course is pretty decent, some challenging holes.

The problem is the entire downriver is on this course at once. Overbooked, the starter just lets twos off, didn't pair people up. Saw a fivesome on one hole, luckily behind us. Overall, we quit after 17 holes because we would've been at close to 5 hours by end, and we were running out of time for patience. Nobody managing the pace of play.

Home course

Haven't played Riverview in years , even though it is ten minutes from my house. The gold and red course fairways and greens were excellent, way better than I have seen in the past. Only reason I didn't give a 5 star was bunkers seemed very dried out and thin on sand. Rating really should be 4 1/2.

Never Booking through golf now again

I had pre paid with Golfnow for 18 holes at riverview, I played my first 9 in cold rain, and asked to rain check my back 9 in the club house. I was told I need to contact Golfnow for either a refund or rain check approval. I called and spoke with a Golfnow rep and was told they would contact riverview to get the rain check approved, I was then told riverview refused my rain check. Since I was still in the parking lot of Riverview Highlands, I asked why they refused and I was told “Golfnow asked if the course was open and that was all.” Yes of course the course was still open but it was miserable conditions to continue play, and I was misinformed and the blame was put solely on riverview for my rain check being refused when that was not the case. I took the loss of money as I paid for 18 for 2 golfers, and will not be booking with Golfnow again, regardless of those hot deals.
