Noting that the last review was made a few years ago, this venue as of late 2015 came under new management and has seen a significant turn around. The entire par 3 and driving range is now fully irrigated. Greens are in great shape. Grass is cut very short on the driving range T boxes & greens alike. Automated ball dispensing machine accepts debit / credit cards. Opening hours have changed, 7am-9pm 7days a week. Flood lit T boxes light up for night time recreation. With a number of other local golf facilities closing down this year this, Riverside is fast becoming one of the leading golf facilites close to the city. With noted changes to the facility my rating has certainly gone up! Worth a visit, a great place for driving & practicing the short game.

This is definitely a "only for fun" course. Do not go here expecting a good golf course. Besides, it is referred to as a junior golf course. The greens are a mix of grass just cut very short, so they are lumpy. It was only $8 for 9 holes and the longest hole is 96 yards. Good place to practice teeing off with your irons. Most of the greens are raised, so if you miss on the tee off, its good chip shot practice.

$7 for 9 holes. Very short. "Greens" not really all that green. Pretty good value, nonetheless.

Great course for the beginners or kiddies...

Nestled along the interstate, this very short par 3 course is perfect for working on your short game or if you're just starting. Longest hole is about 90 yards (so total yardage is probably closer to about 600-650 instead of 1100).

Tends to flood with heavy rains and greens can sometime get REALLY burned out in the dead of summer. Beautiful in early spring or fall. Can't beat the value - $5 for 9 holes, $6.50 for 18 holes.

Just grab your wedge and putter as the holes aren't even to regulation length. Oh, and make sure to watch the fire ants! Youch!

If you're looking for a challenge or scenery, this is not the place. Looking for some practice on a quiet day for a great price, gotta try it here!
