We played a foursome on a hot day after a rainstorm. There was no one else on the course and it was in fairly good shape. The range folks, pro shop and starters were very hospitable and welcoming. The course had some debris due to the storm, but was in really good shape. It was like having our own course!... More

My son and husband had the pleasure of playing the course twice last week. The greens had just been aerated and the course was 'supposedly' at a C+ rating, ONLY due to aeration (they played the day the course reopened). My son played college golf for Texas A&M and has played many national tournaments, and he said it was in... More

I believe that with the basil for sure. Salads have been fresh, tasty and eye appealing. And if you like fish, the selection is always very nice and cooked properly.... More

Great staff and caddy (Kirk) that makes you feel welcomed. It has become my favorite course in hhi area, which places a premium on the golfer's experience. Picturesque and challenging, truly unforgettable.

Really friendly atmosphere and great staff. Good comfort food with a great view of the 18th green, along with the occasional alligator crossing the fairway. Visited twice.

May Rive Golf Club is an expensive, yet welcoming golf club. The pro shop to the caddie were very nice. The course was in good shape with great views. Fairways were generous but the fairway bunkers could be penal if found. If you miss the green, better hope you miss it in the right spot because it's not a guaranteed... More

They do't like guests. They are pompous, owner oriented (fine) but they like the money guests bring in. Folks in the pro shop very difficult.
