Course Review and Comments

Overall this is currently a nice little golf course. Really impressed with the new ownership as it's obvious they're putting money into maintaining really decent conditions. I've been playing River Oaks since it was built in '91 and the older it gets the better it gets. Trees are obviously not 100% mature yet but they're getting there. One thing to note is that the course is located in a flood plane and any heavy amount of water for several days makes this course very mushy but ownership does a good job of managing that issue. The course is usually not crowded too so you can usually play 18 at the pace you like.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Being a relatively new course (opened '91) the trees are still maturing but once they get a little older this design will be very nice. Overall a relatively flat layout with just enough rough coming into play to offer a challenge. Water comes into play on 3 or 4 holes.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments The course is overall in great condition. The fairways are in excellent shape as well as the greens. Ten years ago this was not the case but new ownership has obviously put some money into maintaining very good conditions.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments For a small town local course the service is very adequate. Not a whole lot to offer here but there is a restaurant upstairs above the clubhouse where you can get a beer after your round.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Again the facilities are adequate for this small town course. They have a driving range and although the clubhouse/Pro Shop is small you can accomplish anything you need prior to teeing off.
Course Overall Rating
Play Again Yes
Recommend Yes
