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).

Cost $49 for 18 holes and a cart.......not in great shape, but it looks like it is a very busy muni course in San Diego and gets lots of action......would recommend this course if you feel like playing and not spending a lot......there is definitely better options in San Diego, but will cost you 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 prior to playing, we would have been prepared. No mention of this before we started.

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 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.

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 then Mission 9 hole loops. Presidio was ok, but Mission was better - a bit shorter but lots of water and interesting holes. The greens...

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
