Where to start- Played Riverwood in July of 2011. When I walked into the club house a lady behind the counter was extremely rude, she complained that she had league tonight and someone didn't do what they were suppose to? On top of being Dr.Phil the lady tried charging me almost DOUBLE the price advertised; luckily a young man stepped in and corrected her (we were about to walk out). The young man later had to deliver me a fresh cart (mine died). He even played a few holes with us and bought us a drink for our issues. He is the only reason I would ever go back. If I can remember right his name was Brent? Holes were inconsistent. The first hole was a complete disaster. The fairway reminded me of my gravel driveway. The back nine was a little better. Tough course, which made it a little more fun. All and all the course is in really rough shape. The cost is minimal, so if you can avoid the lady at the desk you're in good shape.

Windy, nothing to break the wind so I assume it's always windy. The course is laid out for target golf with water along the fairways and many doglegs but the wind makes it difficult to play as intended. Not a bad course but the windy conditions take a little of the fun out of it.

Really disappointed. Made the trip from the St.Paul because I heard it was under new management. Quickly learned it was worse than before. The head pro there is head strong and I couldn't even hold a conversation with him. The only positive about the whole experience is the pro shop boy (which I believe was the head pros kid?). Treated us well. Was a little arrogant himself but seemed to be the life of the place. Course was in such bad condition that I couldn't even stand playing it. Only reason I didn't ask for my money back is because I didn't want to make a scene. I'm sorry to say but this course is a dud.

I like the course, but the clubhouse manager needs some serious manners/customer service training. He lacks "people skills" of any kind and he seems quite intent on being a jerk to anyone who troubles him by wanting to play the course and making him have to do something. Try to ignore him and enjoy an above average golf experience in all other respects.

Great Golf Course

In my opinion, this is one of those golf courses that could be considered a "hidden gem" This is a very well put together, and very well maintained course that costs the same as or less than other courses that arent as nice as this one. The course provides many challenges even for the experienced golfers. Dog-legs, water hazards, tight fairways, small rolling greens, and many blind shots make this a difficuly course. I defiantely recommend this course to anyone looking to golf an extremely nice course for a lower rate than most.
