Always enjoy playing here. The two guys we got paired with where a lot of fun even if we did spent a lot of time looking for their golf balls. The course was in awesome shape. The greens were rolling great. Only a couple of bad wet spots in the fairways after the all day rain the day before. Everyone... More

I have nothing bad to say about Venetian Golf and River Club. The only problem was I had a tee time and was bumped for one of their members. The lady in the club house was very rude and unapologetic. I think they need to hire a better club house employee.

From arriving and being greeted at the bag drop, we had a great day. $25 each for golf including range balls and cart. Free iced water at numerous points around the course was a welcome sight. Course was nice and had some interesting holes and challenging greens. Good food and drink in the clubhouse and well priced. This place is... More

Played here January 29, 2014. It is a private course during the winter and they are very disciplined in keeping the tee times at comfortable distances. The greens are super fast this time of year due to dry weather. Plenty of undulation on all greens makes putting a major challenge. In many greens, just touching the ball (really) would move...

Comfortable and attractive dining salon. Perfectly cooked and presented food (I had salmon to die for). Attentive service even though we were part of a large group (about 80 people) for a Christmas Dinner. One of few places where a prepaid service tip does not detract from excellent service.

The course was in nice shape very nice practice facilities and club house. The pace of play was very slow which was very surprising because it was August, can only imagine what it's like during the winter.

From the outset our trip to the Venetian Golf and River Club was a delight. The security guys on the gate were very warm and welcoming even sharing a joke with us. The reception from the Golf staff was efficient and very friendly and we were soon on the excellent practice ground firing countless balls at targets situated out in... More

We ate twice this visit downstairs overlooking the fairway. Both times we had sandwiches and they were the best sandwiches during our whole week trip. Service great and very attentive.
