The Links at RiverLakes Ranch is a distinctly unique golf course—the likes of which you’d never expect to see in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. When architect, Ron Fream designed the layout at RiverLakes Ranch, he incorporated quite a few Scottish golf elements including burms and a rolling, undulating style unique to the Central Valley.

RiverLakes Ranch also incorporates quite a bit of water—hence the name. In addition to the 12 man-made lakes that help provide water hazards on more than half the holes, the Friant-Kern canal wends its way through RiverLakes. While not a natural water hazard, the canal adds to the uniqueness and challenge at RiverLakes Ranch. RiverLakes Ranch was built with considerable attention paid to the natural environment. Almost all the earth moved to create the lakes at RiverLakes was used to create the contouring and burming which give the course its distinct shadowing and shape.

The nines each have a distinct feel. The front nine is more open, while the back plays in and out of and around the old almond orchards. Multiple tees make the Links accessible for both the average and short hitters as well as creating a great challenge for the low handicapper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Slow play Slow play restaurant grill was closed when we were there at 4:00 appetizers didn't look good. November 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good time This was my second time I got to play this course I am not from this area, but had a good time like the course lay out. pace of play was kind of slow but I had nowhere to go. Golf now gave me a good deal. When I go out of town I always use golf now. November 2, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Best Public Course In Bakersfield I was told when I checked into our hotel as well as read in numerous reviews that this is the best public course in Bakersfield. If that's the case then WOW. The course is average at best and the greens are in horrible shape. I playe cral munis here in Vegas that blow this away. Definitely not impressed. August 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Riverlakes Most of the greens pretty bad shape again. Always a good deal using golf now August 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Links Course layout This course is unique in that it is a Links style course which is rare to see in the states. Lot's of bunkers and they all vary in depth and length, one fairway bunker is 200 yards long. Each hole is different and not similar to the next which is refreshing. The clubhouse is like a country club, the bar/restaurant is excellent, lots of TV's, food is great and big servings, and they have an excellent beer/wine selection August 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great 8 months of year Very nice course that could be great if they did not lose their greens EVERY summer. Bunkers need help. Fairways and tees great. Pace of play is slowed every Saturday morning by the best players who are in a skins game and think they are on tour. Five hour rounds the norm in am. My kid and I can play 18 in afternoon in 3 hours. July 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money This course is in terrible condition, eight of the eighteen greens àre horrible,.WORST Course in Kern County. Save your money and play anywhere else. July 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fun course Great time with friends. Fun course to play, will definitely play here again. July 8, 2015
