Golf Course Reviews
We just played River Ridge Victoria Lakes for a monthly tournament and this course "used to be" very nice. I was shocked with the condition it was in today when we played there. EVERYTHING is dead and dried out!! Tee boxes, Fairways, Rough!!! Brown and thin!!! And the greens were like putting on 1970's shag carpet!!! Super rough, bumpy and slow!!!!

Out 1:30, 7/17 as a twosome joined by a single. I like this course but rarely get out to play here, so it was a nice treat for a mid-week round. Conditions are very good.

Played this AM. While the course was very wet from watering it played just fine. Tee boxes playable. Traps all clean and playable. Fairways still had good lies/roll.
