I have played at many golf courses and this one needs some serious improvement. First the greens are an absolute poor condition. When putting your ball does not roll smooth at all. And as per one of the other reviewers stated the greens must have a disease because large portions are dirt only. Second the sand traps are not sand... More

The course itself is in not too bad a shape. But the greens must be diseased since there is very little grass and are painted over. Rates have been dropped because of the problem but if you're looking for a great practice round and don't need to putt, this would be the place for you. Tee time was at 7am... More

Riverlakes has some challenging holes (water) it is a good looking course, priced at a good rate. It doesn't have a large clubhouse but it has some very good food and it is big enough for weddings.

The pace of play can be very slow, especially on the back nine. Five hour rounds are typical. I've not been able to finish several time due... More

The links is a good fit for Bakersfield. A notch above the county courses and not as snobby or expensive as the country club. The bar inside is a good place to have a cocktail after golf or just to have a drink. Food is ok but I am told they have a good dinner menu. I have played here... More

My niece held her wedding reception here. The outdoor grassy area is a perfet setting for a garden wedding. The large patio that extends out from the dining room over looking the water is absolutely beautiful. The food was excellent-chicken cordon bleu. The parking is close and the lot very large.

A very easy course built within a community. I enjoy playing here. It has a good driving range facility that is open very late.
