Got out to Riverwalk yesterday with the GK coupon ($35). I usually play this course 3 or 4 times a year. It has always seemed to be a average course at best. Yesterday was no different. They always seem to have issues with GUR on the fairways. The tee boxes were ok and sand seemed about average. The greens were pretty slow but definately the best part of the course. The guys we got paired up with were locals who played it all the time and had a blast playing with them. Hope they finally get this course where it should be.
Played both the 18 and 9 today. Most will remember the mission / presido is now the only 18 holes and the friars has been renamed the sunset 9. I’ll post a review for the sunset 9 also.
Course is in pretty good shape. It’s been a few months since I have played here. The recent rain has helped green the place up. Tee boxes were level with the par 3’s being the only boxes chewed up. The rest were in good shape. Fairways are getting better. Most were green with some brown spots. A couple times I had to move my ball to get an appropriate lie for hitting the fairway. Sand was in gods shape both fairway and greenside bunkers. Greens were the highlight, a little bumpy but nice coverage and rolled at a decent speed.
Take advantage of the offer on blog site and use the coupon. $35 for this course is a good deal.
Tough finishing par 5 that has the river run through it about 50 yards shy of the green. It takes a mashed drive in order to even consider trying to reach in two. Smaller hitters should lay up just shy of the river on approach, but be mindful that the turf runs faster as you approach the water.
Dangerous and tempting par 4 that can quickly humble those who try to fly it (on a good day it takes 270 to cut the water safely). Bail out left on any first shot and be careful on approach shots as they can run away from the green and towards the back left water.
