Played the Blues on the Mission/Presido combo (6550/71.7/126) using Forelinx. POP on a busy holiday weekend was slow, 4H, 50M, we waited on nearly every shot. Really enjoyed playing as a 3some with Andy & Shar. The weather was pleasant & nice for golf, 70's, breezy and partly cloudy.
The tees were Okay, a little thin for my taste. Not too many had severe divot damage.
The fairways had some lush areas but were still poor overall. Too many thin areas to be considered good, but they had recently resodded some areas that were previously hardpan.
The rough was generally good, more lush than thin, a few hardpan areas.
The sand traps were very well maintained with thick sand.
The greens were nice. Firm, fast and putted very well. If they did not have so many ballmarks, I would have called them excellent.
This combo definitely has the most water to avoid @ Riverwalk. On the Mission, several holes play around lakes, so it's a different experience than the other 2 nine's. Lakes or the river come into play on 6 of the 9 holes. The customer service was excellent. The Marshall's were out patrolling and enforcing cart path only on a couple of holes and the starter was informative and hustling to keep groups teeing off on time.
I was impressed by 2 things Marshall's did during this round. First, one out patrolling stopped and inquired on #13 tee if we thought the POP was too slow. Second, the group behind us had a guy who could really bomb it playing from the white tees. After having a ball land on the green in the air of the short par 4 Mission #2, we gave them the benefit of the doubt. But when he flew it 20 yards past the husband/wife I was playing with on Mission #6, Andy called the clubhouse and complained. Within minutes, they had dispatched not one but 2 Marshall's out to discuss the situation with the group behind us. Fun course, I would play here often if I lived in the greater S.D. area. Recommended.

This is the shortest of the three combos @ Riverwalk. I like the Mission nine the most of the three 9's here because of the variety of holes.
The tees were average, more thin than lush. Many par 3's needed divot repair.
The fairways were mediocre overall. They have a mixture of hardpan, thin and lush areas. They have resodded some prior bad areas that are now GUR, so the effort is being made. CPO until after 8am.
The rough was Okay overall, more lush than thin with some hardpan areas.
The bunkers were very well maintained and freshly raked. The sand was nice to play out of.
The greens were very nice, definitely the best part of the course. They were firm, fast and putted very well. Above the hole was a huge issue as quick as these greens were.
The customer service was excellent. Quick & efficient check-in, Starter very friendly, Marshall's out patrolling. Saw the cart gal several times this morning. I had a burger combo for lunch, decent but $11 was a bit pricey. I would play here regularly if I lived in the greater S.D. area, the layout is fun.
