Certainly an interesting course to play, the Riverwalk features four lakes with waterfalls and trolley tracks (with a bright red trolley chugging through now and again).

Nice Layout, Great Greens, Dissapointing Fairways

Played here on a Sunday afternoon so it was pretty slow but i only paid $54 (inc cart/buggy) so was ok with that. I was paired up with some nice people and we played Presidio... read more

This is a great place for a relaxing lunch on the patio and they make a fantastic Pastrami on Rye. It has the feel of a private club or resort without the sticker shock and consider the location it's in the heart of Hotel Circle and makes for a beautiful escape to work on your game.

Although a nice layout, the fairways are ripped up, muddy, and aerated. Greens are inconsistent and the course needs a lot of work.

Nice course, nice location, rates were reasonable and I rented a nice set of clubs to play with, also for a reasonable price. Afterwards, a friendly drink at the restaurant with friendly patrons and bartender.

I absolutely loved this course. We started at 8am and despite very uncharacteristic frost on the course, they were still staying on time. I was surprised how chilly it was for Dec. 27th, but it soon warmed up and we had a glorious day. This course is absolutely beautiful. I think we played Friars and Mission and I booked through...

Nice challenge and well maintained. If you fear water and sand this might be to challenging for you and you get to watch the Trolley go by

In the heart of Mission Valley lies Riverwalk golf course. It's composed of three nine-hole courses. The Flyers course is a very fun venue. It is not terribly long, and the fairways are wide. I have been impressed on what good shape the course has been in whenever I have played there. On Wednesday the morning there is little traffic... More

The course was in very good shape and seemed to be very well managed. We booked our tickets on-line after phoning the pro shop and being encouraged to check out the on-line rates which were lower than what the club house offered. The course marshals were friendly, gave clear expectations on play for the day and were willing to help... More

Our group wanted to play a round of golf immediately after flying into San Diego at a course close enough to downtown that would allow us to catch a Padres game later the same evening. Riverwalk seemed to fit the bill as it was reasonably close to the airport and a short hop into town. While the staff in the... More

We have played this course a number of times at the same price quoted on the phone before today's visit. But when we get there, they insist that we pay more than double what was quoted on the phone. We left. I don't know if it is the new ownership (Touchstone Golf) that is a problem or just the guys... More
