Love seeing thriving public courses! Walked into the shop around 3:30pm on a Wednesday and it was packed! They still got us out with another 2some relatively quickly to play the back 9. Nice laid back atmosphere. Only issue seemed to be a lack of communication between the pro shop and the poor starter whose job it was to get us out between groups making the turn. Even still the pace of play was fine. Great spot for the average duffer to get their golf fix.

Upon arrival to Riverside on Sunday morning, my boyfriend and I were not impressed. We were on vacation, had a 10:45 tee time, and unfortunately, due to traffic, were 4 minutes late to the tee box. The older gentleman inside the pro shop didn’t think this was a big deal at all. However, the starter who I believe was called “Chappy” had an absolute conniption fit and told us 5 times or more to not be late for our tee time. Not to mention they paired us up with another couple without our consent. I’ve never heard of this as a rule before with golf! The starter pushed us in and created an unsafe situation by attempting to force my boyfriend to drive early. If he would have gone when told, he could have hit one of the other golfers already on the fairway. My boyfriend didn’t go when told and waited for a safe time to start. After driving, he was walking back to our cart and Chappy approached to remind us AGAIN that we can’t be late for our tee time. We told him again it was due to traffic he said, “I don’t want to hear it.” After the first hole we realized how tight he packed everyone in due to waiting at every hole either at the tee box or for the greens to clear. We also noticed how poorly kept the fairways and greens were (dead/dying grass and bald spots). Chappy, the angry old man, treated this golf course like it was a PGA Championship. We golf regularly on much nicer courses than this one and have been to Saratoga National Golf Course which is a PGA course. We have NEVER been treated so poorly in all of our years of golfing and the next time we are in Portland we surely will not be returning to Riverside. On a positive note, the sole shining star of this establishment is Rene, the beverage lady! She was absolutely wonderful, friendly, and polite! You need to hire more people like Rene if you want to stay in business!
