Course Reviews


Course is a lot of fun but play can be slow at times. They did try to speed up play last year by you signing and agreement to play fast but they are not longer doing that.

It is a public course so a lot of golfers are not taking care of their divots. Besides that, the course was in great shape.

Loved course and recommend to all to play. Reminds me a little of my other favorite course Olde Homestead.



I found Riverview after trying to get on Architects Golf Club (Phillipsburg, NJ) and was turned away because of one of the MANY tournaments played there. I came away pleasantly surprised. For $50 (verses the $79 tariff at the Architects) I felt that this was a very good deal. The layout can be considered typical SE-PA with a mix of links and parkland holes offering some major elevation changes. I found this course to have a higher design rating than most with interesting bunkering and fairway cuts. The course plays long enough from the tips for you big hitters, especially when the wind blows as it usually does. For you average golfers it’s a nice test putting a premium on your approach shots. The rough isn’t to bad and I suspect the height is mostly to speed play (could play 3-5 strokes harder if they grew the cabbage up). Maintenance is up to par, and maybe a little better, for a club of this price point. The clubhouse is basically a triple-wide but unless you’re inside playing pinochle all day what’s the difference? The Pro Shop is stocked well enough for most needs. The practice facility has a lot to be desired but sufficient for a warm up pre-round. The practice green is fine and matches well with conditions on the course. Overall a very solid public course priced well with good design and maintenance. It’s a GREAT alternative to the other courses in the area Like AGC, Morgan Hill or High Bridge Hills.

Normal Layout with a few exceptions. Conditions are above average, though I found a lot of the greens with unrepaired ball marks, though I can't blame the staff for that one really. Staff was okay, not great, not rude either.

The other comments are true though, making you pay for a yardage book is absurd. I've never seen this on any other course, and I have hard time believing that someone actually thought that was a good idea, as in reality it just pisses everyone off.

Prices are about what you'd expect for the quality of the course.

Except for previous golfers not taking care of their divots the course was in great shape for a mid August day. Loved course and recommend to all to play. Challenging enough for the good, fun enough for the hacker. Staff was more than courteous. A definite play again course asap.

I have played Riverview several times, as it's about five miles from my house. I do find it enjoyable. It's flat. It's not very scenic and the name is kind of a misnomer. The rate is on par with other courses.

It is annoying that they don't provide you with any direction unless you buy the yardage book. That doesn't make sense for a new course.

A group I am associated with used to have a tournament there, but found the staff difficult to work with which is surprising considering the number of local courses.

The food was good there. I actually prefer Whitetail and Morgan Hill in the area to playing Riverview, but live Riverview over Green Pond and Southmoore.

We played here on 2/2/08 - a rare decent weather day in PA for a February! We walked the course, something I guess they only allow you to do in Winter. But it was just fine to walk. Front 9 a piece of cake to walk, back 9 a few hills to climb, but not bad if you're used to walking. As far as play, we really enjoyed this course. Conditions for February in Pennsylvania were outstanding. Layout on the front a bit non-memorable, but certainly nothing negative. Very fair and you can spray your drives a bit and not pay a high price. The back 9's layout was much more appealing and of course more challenging. Gotta keep em straight there. The par 5 on the back is unbelievable and if you bogey it's a good score. For $25 to walk in the middle of Winter, this was the most fun we've had all Winter so far. Can't wait to play it in the Spring/Summer. Although too bad you have to ride in carts then.

I'm a high handicapper and played here over the Labor Day weekend when the course was packed. In the end, I had mixed feelings about this place. First the good stuff: This is a pleasant place to play and I can easily understand why some are so enthusiastic about it. The course is especially challenging, well kept and an OK value. (They even handed out free golf towels in honor of their third anniversary.)

Couple of things to keep in mind though. First, if you want to warm up on a driving range before your round get there early because the range is manual pickup and once the practice balls are gone they're apparently gone for the day. Also, if you are looking for a course layout, you'll have to shell out 5 bucks for a booklet in the pro shop, because there's nothing on the yardage markers, nothing on the score card and nothing on the web site. I'm sorry, but I think that's a rip...particularly when there are a number of hidden doglegs and NUMEROUS sand traps, many of which are enormous. The greens also proved be very difficult to read.

As for asthetics, again I would say just OK. The refreshment cart was broken on this day, which as it turns out wasn't a bad thing because there are no porta johns and the club house at the turn offers the only relief facility. If you have bladder issues, hydrate regularly or are a beer drinker when you play, you may have problems. I didn't find the place to be particularly scenic (far as I can tell, just one fairway offers a "river view"), but it certainly isn't unpleasant by any means. The pro shop is a bit small but seemed to be well-stocked. The restaurant features a full bar, but it's really nothing more than a basic snack bar. Employee service was neither bad nor memorable.

Again, a decent course and a fun day. We can see how some love this place, but it'll probably be a while before we return.

We played the course early in the morning after a heavy rain over night and were limited to cart paths only. There was a considerable amount of standing water in the fairways, and the greens and fairways were very soft and slow as you would expect. Even with this, this was a very enjoyable golf course. The course was very well maintained from tee to green, every trap was freshly groomed despite the wet weather. There is a premium on course knowledge, there a number of holes I will play differently next time. The fairways were somewhat deceiving and narrow which made for more challenging tee shots. In addition this made second shots much longer and difficult from the wet and deep rough. While the par 5’s where shorter, then many courses the wet conditions eliminated any roll. Everything played long on this day. The greens rolled very true but unfortunately played slow on this day. I would love to play this course in dry conditions. I would also like to play this course in the fall where the fall foliage would make the scenery exceptional. I believe this course will continue to grow in popularity; this is a very good value.

This is a must play coarse for all. I'm new to the golf world and out the ten courses that I have been at this year this one was the best!

I consider Riverview one of those up and coming courses. IMO...one of the best courses in the Lehigh Valley/Western Jersey area. Great layout, and not overly punishing if you miss the fairways. The few holes before the turn, and immediately after the turn provide the toughest stretch on the course. A must play course!

Terrific Course

I played the course on 6/23/07 and found it to be in terrific shape. It is challenging and well maintained. It is quite scenic and water/wetlands areas come into play on many of the holes. The fairways are a bit narrow and if your drives are not accurate you are in for the pain train that is the deep rough! The course is only a couple of years old and they do not yet have a clubhouse, they do have a decent building that houses a pro shop and a small bar area. This was the weakest point and as I was there for the golf course it didn't bother me a bit.
