This is a challenging course!!! Customer service is very good... I don't understand all the bad reviews. I will play here every chance I get... The most affordable place in OC worth playing.

Course is fine, but tee time management is awful. Had a tee time set for 9am on a Friday morning and there were 3 other 4-somes with the same tee time. We teed off 20 minutes past our tee time and were waiting on every shot. Before we teed off we tried to get a refund but the manager refused in a rude manner. This is the first AND LAST time I will golf here due to the atrocious management and customer service. Their management/manager needs to be retrained.

Great course, playing tomorrow for the first time in years. Its perfect for those of us that miss birch hills and don't want to pay more than $45 to play on a weekend. Will review again tomorrow night.

One word, terrible. The drained remains of the SA river run through the course and most of the long holes are set up in or across the banks of the river. This means most of the holes feature elevated tees and/or elevated greens, and a lot of blind shooting. Sure, it's a challenge, but it gets repetitive. Fairways were in terrible condition, and too close to the roped off brush and sand that is/used to be the river. The holes were so cramped together, very dangerous! The greens are supposedly the greatest asset of this course, which is fine and dandy except when you're playing right after they cored sanded them, which I was. The only positive aspect of this course was the relatively cheap price. If you're in the mood to play a "quirky" course, sure, but that's just not my style. Next time, I'm going to bite the bullet and fork over a few extra bucks to play real, quality golf somewhere else.

This really is a fun course! The greens are maintained very well. My buddies and I golf the course at least twice a month. They also have the best putting green I've ever seen which includes a 18 hole putting course which is a blast. Great service and freindly staff makes the experience so enjoyable that we make a 20 minute trip there about two times a week to just hit balls and put. On Fridays @ 4pm and Sundays @12pm the local high school golf team hosts 1 hour golf lessons for $10 (plus the cost of balls which is purchased seperately).

Decent, cheap course. If you come for twilight don't expect to finish your round, both times I've been here they pull the flags out before dark. There is some dirty looking guy who drives around before it is dark and kicks golfers off the course; he must be in a hurry to go home... He does not do this in a nice or courteous manner and simply tells you that you're done and to return your cart. He was even too lazy to get the flag himself and had my buddy pull it for him. We could have played atleast 2 more holes before it got too dark but he wouldn't let us. This coupled with the unfriendly fellow at the pro shop who always seems to be having a terrible day is enough for me to spend my money at courses that want my business and provide decent customer service. There are way too many courses around to put up with the staff at riverview....

I played River View for my first (and last) time this weekend. This course was doomed from day one by it's location. No course should have been built here, plain and simple. It would barely be passable location for a public park. The only positives I can muster are nice greens and nice management. But on the whole, this is the most poorly designed golf course I have ever played. 80% of the course is on the the river banks. Literally on the banks. Numerous holes on the back nine feature galleries of homeless people heckling you while you putt. Not only did this course play 5.5 hours on Sunday, but there was no (visible) marshall to move players along. Unless you are very desperate for a tee time, go somewhere else. Anywhere else.
