Riverwood National

************************************************************** Riverwood National in Otsego Reviewed by SpeedycatRiverwood National is a new course, in it’s second season. My opinion of this layout is not yet quite formed. It has many blind shots, doglegs, and elevation changes that prohibit you from seeing your ball actually land. This course is also set up as a “target” course. It puts a premium on playing the correct yardage off of the tee. If you expect to grab your driver and smash the ball down the middle – you are at the wrong place! Until I learn how to navigate my shots into the right position here, my days will be filled with turmoil. Many shots from the tee box looked perfect to me…only to run through the landing area and into watery graves. ANYTHING with the word grave in it, is not good! I rate this course a soft 6 on the 1~10 scale. If you are looking for a mental test of golf, go to Riverwood. If you like to belt out large drives, stay clear.

If anything, this is a scenic course for being so young. Only a couple of holes are still in rough shape.

  • Score: 75
  • Longest drive: 360! (help from wind and elevation)
  • Longest birdie putt: None made? Yes, it’s true.
  • Pars on card: 15

This was a great day to play golf, and the people at Riverwood National are fantastic. Worth a try!
