Early morning round

We started just after sunrise and had an enjoyable round, although we did have to battle the wind a bit. The tee boxes were very dry and not in that good a shape. The course was also very dry (not unexpected for this time of year) and allowed for a lot of run after the ball hit. Best part of our round was my son getting a hole-in-one on #14 (over the water). Made it a very exciting round for both of us!!

Decent course

As you can see from the date I played late in the season and they were winterizing trimming trees so there were piles of branches around a lot of trees. I fortunately never hit my ball in any of the piles. The greens were still good the fairway’s were brown but it’s October so I don’t mind. The view of the bluffs across the meremac river was beautiful. The pace of play was amazing. I was in a group of 3 and we played 18 in 4 hours and 15 minutes. This place does NOT over book like some course do. It’s not the best course in area but it’s fairly close reasonable. If you want to spend 60$ a round you can find nicer courses.

Over Charged

I booked a trip for 13 guys to play. I was told to book four tee times. I had a couple players back out and on the day of play they forcibly charged my credit card for 14 people (of which there would have only been one player, we were going to play as a 3x3x3x4). Then they ended up pushing a 2 some into our group after making us pay for 4 more tee times than people. Shady to say the least, been golfing there for over 20 years. I won't be back.

All was good. I would recommend more work on the tee boxes. Greens were in decent shape and slow. Had a good round.

Worst Course in DFW

Save yourself the money, headache, frustration, and possible heat stroke. These mor0ns decided to go part path only in August in Texas. This slowed the pace of play down for a twosome to almost 6 hours. There’s almost no shade anywhere and the river has taken out portions of the course. When I told the guy in the clubhouse that they should rethink the cart path only rule (maybe 90 degrees?) This slick pr1ck says, “well there’s actually a really good reason for that, we have to take care of the course.” First, that lets me know where taking care of the players stands and… Second, have you seen the course? Take care of what? Judging by the clubhouse, I assume they can’t afford to water. Horrible course.

Clipboard Tool

This place has an overall friendly staff, but the guy running around with the clipboard and tee sheet could settle down a bit. The attitude about teeing off on 10 immediately is unnecessary considering we were stopping at the turn to use the restroom and SPEND MONEY in your snack bar. We didn’t have to do that. If you’re so “backed up” then maybe try scheduling things a little better and not cram so many tee times in at once. Don’t try to run an overall poor quality course like it’s a posh private club.

The cashier at check in was very nice and the girl at the snack bar was very friendly and courteous.

Needs a marshal for pace of play. Tee boxes need to be replaced in a bad way. Could be a great little public course with a little love, and a marshal

6 groups ahead of us stacked at the first tee. Wouldn’t let anyone tee off the back side. We teed off 40 mins after our tee time and played 12 holes in 5.5 hours. Will never come back!

Poor Course Upkeep, Terrible Staff, Always Over Booked

What used to be the go-to affordable course for years is easily the biggest waste of time and money now, and it doesn’t seem to be changing for the good anytime soon. Riverside is one of the worst managed courses in the area now. The last few times I have gone, I have booked my tee time through GolfNow and when my group has gotten to the course, they either change our tee time to 30min or and hour later, or send us out along with 4 other groups at the same time. Every tee box you will be waiting way too long, followed by a choppy tee box, teeing off into unidentifiable fairways, riddled with goose crap, tree limbs and scattered trash.

Lastly, I knew I was never coming back to this course after I booked my tee time through Golf Now, same thing happened where there pushed our tee time back 40 min, we played the round, and 2 weeks later I got an email from GolfNow that I was being charged $90 for failing to make it to my tee time, that we were there for, but Riverside claims we weren’t there. We pay at the course when we book through GolfNow with Riverside, so they basically made us pay double for a round. When I called Riverside they had no interest in looking into the situation or helping in anyway. The rudest staff I have ever dealt with, consistently. We played here strictly because it is close, and affordable, but if they are pulling that scheme it’s not.

I cannot emphasize enough how much I do NOT recommend this place to anyone. Save your money, or pay up a little to play elsewhere.
