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

Played in a tournament here. It's a good course that is well-maintained, but it seemed pretty dated to me. If I was staying in a nearby hotel I'd go back again.

The course is in pretty good shape. We visited in 2008 and the staff was disinterested and kind of rude. We came back in 2012 and see they are consistent. Not sure why some starters and clubhouse staff act like turds at some courses. We travel to San Diego at least once a winter for a long golf weekend and... More

It is a decent course. I would have rather paid the 60 bucks and played a course in LA. Also the pace of play was a bit slow even though there are 27 holes here.

This is course is very well maintained and I think it is a great option if you visiting from out of town and you are looking for a centrally located golf option. The grounds are in great shape and it is genuinely a fun and somewhat challenging course. I have only played here for tournaments, but it has always been... More
