Reviewed October 17, 2014

Due to my whole family and I being regular customers of the pathetic Kings River Golf Course, operated by some inconsiderate woman named Karen, I must publicly express my devaluing review. Regrettably deciding to alleviate the stresses of full time education yesterday finally with adequate October weather, instead only to be enraged by the inconsiderateness of Karen’s management of the demeaning course. Personally purchasing eighteen holes with a tight college budget, I was initially stressed by loitering elderly which the course previously banked from, then became overly flustered by the terrible course maintenance. After being accustomed for years to the courses terrible geography, intertwined throughout Ozark forestry, the normally leaf/acorn/walnut/hedge apple covered greens and tee boxes were abnormally worse than ever. If you enjoy weed covered putting greens, always unmaintained/leafy/fruit covered fairways, being bent over price wise for the lowest quality golf experience, and also if you want charged an extra $13 for an eleven hole rain check after previously donating an unreasonable $35, then this sh*t covered Kings River Golf Course is for you.

I enjoyed playing this golf course. It is still improving from five years ago so I hear. Yes, the fairways are tight but accuracy is something we all need to improve as golfers. The people are great and is a value for the area.

For a course in very rural and hilly Ozarkland, this one is fun. Very nice people and inexpensive, but the cart paths are almost unnavigable (maybe bring your own horse) and the back 9 greens all had cicada killers swarming from holes in the green (we putted quickly). Don't be deterred! It's an adventure :-)

Tight fairways. Super nice people. Lots of fun to play. Scenery is great. This is a must play for a great ozarks golf course.

Very nice staff, course has many holes where there is no place to hit drive, poor lay-out, not very playable, would be very good course if they doubled the size of the fairways and re-positioned some tees

Very nice people. Good fairways and greens. A couple of fairways are on the side of hills making it very difficult to stay on. This is a very fun course.
