Ron Jaworski’s Riverwinds Golf & Tennis Club is situated along a scenic stretch of grassland between the banks of the Woodbury Creek and the deep harbor marina on the Delaware River. Its location gives it the feel of traditional seaside links courses found in Scotland and Ireland, which is further enforced by the sod-wall bunkers that lurk near the greens. The layout features plenty of water and incorporates the surrounding wetlands as well. One unique feature of the golf course is that the routing winds across a mile-long twisting burn, creating a visually interesting setting. Riverwinds begins with a gentle, mostly flat front nine but the mounding becomes more aggressive as you move onto the back. All of the holes face a different direction, which means you’ll most likely be using all the clubs in your bag to tackle the crosswinds and rugged terrain.

The layout is great and allows you to hit driver on all holes except of course the par 3’s.

Play it from the back tees to truly enjoy it.

Yesterday was a great time. I am always nervous about checking out a new course. Usually when it's just Dad and I playing we like to be by ourselves and you never know who you're going to be playing with. You can't pick and that's understandable. (Being paired up was not a problem and you can never control who you pair people with... fellow golfers make note of that. You get what you get).

Well, wide open fairways that you could easily tell where the fairways and where the rough was located.

Great friendly staff. The girl Taylor that works your snack stand. She always had a smile on her face. Didn't catch her last name but, she was a big help. Had the food ready to go and all I had to do was place my order and I was on my way.

A bit out of my price range but, I found a hor deal on GolfNow that helped with making it am easier time to play.

Course is very well maintained. The only thing I would want to see is more cart paths being paved. As well as the distance to the putting green being shorter or making another where you go to pick up your cart.

Definitely recommend the course to anyone. I hate Philly however, you get some really nice views of the city and the course.

This course was an absolute pleasure to play. First, the rate on GolfNow was fantastic. Next, upon paying at the pro shop to finding our way to the first tee, everyone was friendly and inviting. The most important aspect, the course, was in great shape and has an awesome layout with great views. The fairways are fairly wide, the rough a great length, and the greens smooth and fast. A nice touch were the American flagsticks on every hole for Memorial Day. Cannot wait to play it again. Highly recommend. One of the best courses I’ve played in the Philly region.

I like playing this course and highly recommend to all. I’ve had an experience with one of the starters but let it go but I can’t help but put it in words what happened today. I got to the course 25 before my tee time, checked in then got loaded on the cart. As I was ready to go to the putting green to practice few putts, one of the gentlemen told me I had to wait for a single that would be riding with me. I waited about 17 minutes for this single who hasn’t even checked in. I told the gentleman that he had me detained for no reason while he could’ve just send that person to the first tee. 4 minutes before my tee time he lets me go. Once I got to the first tee I learned that the single has checked in and is on his way. I ended up teeing off 12 minutes late. This was my first experience in the last 15 years playing. To make the matters worse that single was the most deliberate golfer I’ve ever played with. He was nice though but so damm deliberate as if he was playing the us open. I hope to never play with him again my head will explode. Course was in great condition, greens were fast.

The pace of play is normally 4 hours and 20 minutes. We played to 5 hours and 40 minutes.

The starter does a good job of letting you know the course rules and the way to pace you game. But someone playing perhaps 8 to 10 holes in front of us did not pay attention. The pace picked up after the 9th and 10th holes.

If hanging out with you group after the round for a beer is your thing this is not your place. It has a pro shop that is combined with the tennis club. The warm-up area is a net and AstroTurf tee boxs about 10 yards back. Nice green for putting while waiting for your start.

The course has a links style layout. The winds off of the river gives it a links-ish feel. There is an “Island” green that extends into a boaters party cove that should add a nice finish.

The tee boxes need some TLC and the fairways need to come back. Should be in good shape for summer.

you normally do not expect fast and well maintained greens at this time of year but Riverwinds is in terrific shape for this early in the season. The guys who maintain this course are doing a great job and the course itself is really a very challenging test. Go play here as its one of the best publics in this area

Played Riverwinds on Saturday (3/23) and Sunday (3/24). The course is always in great shape. Saturday was brutally windy so the course played much tougher than Sunday when conditions were sublime. I can't recommend this course enough although the price does get to be a little on the expensive side in the summer. Regardless, it's a fun course that can be challenging but can also provide low scores and always provides a wonderful set of finishing holes along the Delaware River.

Course us in great shape for January, I love the challenge of winter golf with frozen greens , yeah you get a ton of roll in fairways , trick is to figure out where to land ball to stay on greens! It’s comical at times but fun! We always have a lot of laughs at Riverwinds in the frozen tundra!

Been a few years since I’ve played this track. Always enjoyed it. Always in good shape. Lots of rain the night before ant the course held up nicely. Greens were faster then expected. They even were able to get to some bunkers . Also the hot deal. All good 4+ stars.

Course in great shape. Cart path only due to rain on Tuesday. Greens conditions some of the best of the season. Beware: greens being punched this week. Shared with us by Maintenance staff.

Unlikely that pro shop will share this info in advance. GolfNow used to use Advisory symbols for courses that recently aerified, but no longer do. Advice: Call ahead - ask questions before booking.

Never a bad day at RiverWinds. Today was no different. Friendly staff at every amenity (Pro shop, Snack bar, cart service). Just wish they’d get the Pro shop closer to the course.

As for getting a beverage and a meal afterwards, the restaurant at the end is perfect.
