I give Riverside a four out of five mostly because of the back nine. It has  beautiful scenery with fairly challenging holes.  Riverside has a wide variety of holes ranging from long par fours with a dog leg right and short straight always that are good for the best drive. Their par threes are very simple, but it is easy to get off the course with a slight hook because of the challenging placement. Riverside’s employees are welcoming and wonderful to be around.


My first love…spent my teen summers with this lady. Was there when they first built the back nine and fertilized it with chicken sh.t. White feathers everywhere…hit a ball into the fairway and it was gone. Just find any ball and play it. Then the Portneuf river that danced through the front nine flooded and the Corp of Engineers routed it down a concrete gutter along the adjacent railroad tracks. Made it really hard to dive for lost balls….Love this place and the memories…Number nine green under the cottonwoods with it’s “30 degree slope” is still impossible to two putt.


This can be a fun course-Good for a municipal.  This is a course that you can score on.


This exciting golf course features well-manicured greens and scenic vistas.


The best public course in the area. The course is kept in great condition all season. The holes are short so play the blue tees if your driving is solid. otherwise you can get away with a long iron off the tee and still have a short iron to the green. Many greens are slightly elevated and play tougher than they look. Just play smart and this course wont give you any problems… except #8 #9 and #16 be careful not to 3 putt, these greens can be a pain.


Of the two public courses in town, Riverside is the easiest, and the busiest.  It’s a flatter course with not so many geographical ups and downs.  There’s a couple of challenging holes, but for the most part you just play it straightforward.  I would enjoy it more if there weren’t so much traffic on it.


Now the front nine is mature with several hard Pinehurst #2 inverted bowl like greens…just try to run one up onto number 1.
