We come to Florida to get away from the Winter weather back home. Having not played for several months we thought Rivard would be a good place to start. 18 holes on a fairly decent course for not a lot of money would give us some decent practice. As much as I would complain about the putting on the greens, we still managed to 2 putt most greens! There hasn't been a lot of rain in this area lately so the ground is pretty hard. If you don't keep your ball on the fairway you have a good chance of it being lost, they seem to travel a very long way on the hard ground. I have Always found the people here to be very friendly and courteous. They still have some challenging holes and playing from different tees gives you more of an opportunity to experience a different round of golf!
