“Beautiful Course, Friendly Staff!”
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).

This course has great bones-very well designed holes, challenging, but fair. And, to be fair, the greens are in great shape. But the rest of the course is in unforgivably bad shape. As of the date of this review (01-18-2018), FIVE of the fairways were...More

The fairways were patchy, it was like putting on a beach, and it basically seems like they let the course go. They were working on it, so the price should have been reduced. If they would have told us the course was being worked on...More

Although suffering from the drought, staff has done an excellent job of maintaining the fairways and greens. We found it to be a challenging and enjoyable course.

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...More

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.
