Disappointed- - stopped at 9- no powered carts even cart path only- was not offered discount, course could have handled cart path only. It was not informed until we got there. Amount paid for Golfnow included the price of a cart.

River Course

Excellent course and location. Overall conditions were very good. Fairways and greens in very good condition. There were some tee boxes that they appear to have been reseeding, but it did not detract from the round. Course was fun and times challenging. I will play this course again when I am back in SOolvang.

Great course

It has been raining the previous 2 days but the course is unscathed , clean except for the mushy ground in some spots which is expected. Green fairways and greens are well maintained. The greens are awesome I will surely play this course again on my next visit.

Great course and Well Manicured

The course was its usual self. Good manicured course with no over saturated hole or muddied areas. The rough we’re also cut to a decent height and the brush has been cleared in all areas.

The scenery is picturesque and there are several holes with awesome photo ops. This was our 20th round of golf here and we were not disappointed having driven in from the Los Angeles areas.

Windy weather

Reduce the height of the rough and remove the leaves please.

The rough needs to have one or more cuts before the deep rough begins and the leaves covering rough that is cut to 1.5"- 3' deep makes finding a ball 2' - 5' off the fairway nearly impossible to find. The pace of play is so slow because every player is wasting time looking for their shot...lol. The course is so good otherwise but for the love of golf please chill out the rough!
