Nine Hole Course at Riverside Municipal Golf Club Ratings & Reviews
1 day ago
I’ve never been treated as poorly at a golf course as I was here. I booked a tee time for my father, 2 brothers and I on Father’s Day. My father and I are avid golfers but my brothers aren’t, and don’t have clubs. They were going to use ours, and we were going to play a scramble as to not hold up pace of play. We spent an hour at the driving range down the street before showing up to our reservation. We were told by the old angry man at the desk that they had no carts, and wouldn’t be getting any carts anytime soon. He also told us we couldn’t play without a set of clubs for everyone. We asked about rentals in which he said he couldn’t help us. He was rude and didn’t let us even finish talking before responding with a quick, mean response. I then asked if I could be given a refund for the money I had spent already for the reservation. He told me I would have to go to the other pro shop. I went, and the equally angry, equally old man there told me that even though I booked it on THEIR website, they AREN’T liable for refunding me the money I paid to reserve a tee time at THEIR course. Absolutely ridiculous. I worked here in high school, played here as my home course for my high school team, and continued to play here, until now. I will never return to this course to play ever again.

Really nice and reasonably challenging municipal courses (18 and 9 holes) meander through woods and fields along the Presumpscot River. Great place for sledding, XC skiing and dog walking in winter.

This is a great course for the money. They do a good job at maintaining the course. My only complaint is that most of the staff seems unnecessarily angry all the time. Walked in to the pro shop to ask if they had any tee times and the guy yelled at me to go ask the starter as he had no idea. The guy with the computer in front of him that listed all tee times made me go ask the guy with a clipboard and paper who hoped he had the oat up to date information from the pro shop. The starter was pleasant though and he was happy to get me on the course. Other times I've been there and they've had a ranger come out and tell us to pick up the pace of play, while the group in front of us (we were waiting on the tee box) were within 100 yards of us on a par 5. He didn't go talk to them at all.
I bear with the grumpy old men staffing the course due to the cost and conditions, but trust me, I search other courses first and see if they have openings well before coming to Riverside.
