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.

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 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.
