River Oaks Golf Plantation
Tee boxes and greens were in excellent condition. Fairways, although well kept had many spots where the grass was dormant.

We only played nine holes on the Fox course. Price was great, and we enjoyed the round. The course appealed to me with ample fairways, and not too close to housing developments. Letts the average player feel more comfortable with shots, yet challenging enough to require good shot making to score well. Cannot wait to try the Otter and Bear nines also.

Had 2 PM tee time. Crowd at the bag drop was a nightmare. Got to the course in plenty of time, but couldn't get the carts loaded in time to hit range balls. They had obviously booked too many rounds. Front nine took over 3 hours. Brutal. Fox nine was very average. Crowd cleared out for back nine thankfully. Otter nine was average until 16, 17, and 18. Those three holes were by far the most challenging. A lot of water on 16 and 17. It was odd to have mediocre holes and then suddenly a couple challenging holes. Greens were in tough shape. Played in March.

We played Fox/Otter with friends players we met there previously. We enjoy the course and the people that frequent it.

Well, well, well. Never thought I would be writing a positive review about this course, but here it is. Have been staying at River Oaks for years, but haven't played the course for quite some time. Reason being that it was a "dog track" back in the day. They have put much time, effort, and money on improvements. Condition is now very good. That being said, hit it straight. Not a long course, but there is trouble on nearly every hole. Fairways are narrow, but driver is not necessary on many of the par 4's and 5's. Also, merchandize in the pro shop won't cost you your first born male child! Would not hesitate to recommend this course. Be aware, we got a coupon special for $24. Ordinarily around $40+ to play. Played in just over 4 hours. Enjoy

We had played this course a few years ago and weren't overly impressed. Thought we would give it another chance. Forecast was rain and possible thunderstorms but we went out anyway. That's what you do when you're a million miles from home. We got wet but there was no lightning. The course was understandably wet but was actually in great shape. The greens were very good. Changed our opinion of the course to impressed and would certainly play again. Staff was very friendly and let us out way early despite having a red hot tee time so we were appreciative. All in all a great day!

We were paired with a couple from Canada who were equally matched with us. The course was nice and we had a good time.

Good deal Great course
It was a packed day and that did not seem to slow the course. Great condition. I was never really held up due to overcrowding even though I feared that walking in. Will definitely return. Course is great for Intermediate players.
