The Links At Riverlakes Ranch
Not what I expected
The layout of this course is very good and will challenge you on every hole. The course was not well maintained at all. The greens were in good shape except almost every hole had a portion to the green that was unplayable. Bunkers had some sand, but the faces had eroded leaving for shots over two and three foot high lips. The green on the last hole was completely unplayable because it was covered in bird droppings. If you can get a good deal on the course (under $25) then I would play it.

We had a great time!
My son and I had a great day on this course. He was married here at the clubhouse 3 years ago, so it's a special place to us.
I am a club champ in Florida and find this course challenging yet fun to play

Sorry I wasted our day at this golf course
The greens were full of huge punch holes like i've never see before. The bunkers were ALL dirt only, not a grain of sand left in them. The bermuda portion of the fairways were all dormant and in many places just plain dirt. Extraordinarily crummy round of golf. my score was fine but would have been much lower with a better maintained course. I will never return and if asked will recommend others play somewhere else.

This course is overrated.
I'm definitely not a big fan of this course. The greens terrible and punched horribly. The drainage system is bad. We had rain the day before so many parts of the course were flooded. We were told by staff to rush while we played.

Needs a little TLC
The greens had just been punched 2 weeks ago which made putting in a straight line comical. The overall condition of the course was not up to par. It definitely needs some TLC. This course, when in good shape, is an amazing layout with the final hole entirely surrounded by water. It is a short course. I played the BLUE tees. I was able to grab an exceptional rate through GolfNow for only $14 which included a cart. So that made everything a pleasant day on the links all in all. I would recommend this course to anyone visiting the area. Fun course. And typically has some incredible greens.

My first time going to RiverLakes, im resident of bakersfield and i think they still have problems with the greens but already fixing it. i think in like 2 weeks it will be in great conditions..

CC FEEL FOR MUNI $$
Played this course for first time Saturday. The grounds, practice area, putting green and clubhouse immediately make you feel as though you're at the local Country Club instead of a public course. Playing as a single, when arriving at starters hut, I was paired up with a twosome that could not have been more nice or friendly. We were all about even in skill at about 10 HC. The course was in exceptional shape and well maintained, with the usual exception of a few areas under repair, but definitely one of the nicest muni courses I've played. Having booked thru Golfnow with a hot deal the Saturday rd was an exceptional value at only $26.00 bucks. One tip for sure...Get a cart!! Course layout is quite spread out.

Some of the greens are under repair for the time being but a majority of them are still playable. Once the proper repairs have been made this course will still remain as one of Bakersfield more challenging and unique courses.
