Maine golf courses have suffered from extremely poor weather since November. Riverside is no exception. May has been extremely cool and wet -- most of the golf courses in the area are in very poor condition. The course was pretty wet and had a lot of damage from the winter. That being said, Riverside was well worth the money. The staff are very friendly and the grill is exceptional..

Had a good afternoon. Starter suggested we start on back so we could get 18 in before dark, that was nice of him!

Greens were good, fairways wet due to recent rains but overall course was in good shape.

Beautiful day, sunny, cool and windy!! After several days of rain, course had lots of puddles, mud and spongy grass. However tee boxes and greens were in really nice condition.

Since I played alone, I had a relatively relaxed round. Two ladies ahead of me asked if I wanted to play through on the third hole. Caught up to threesome, but since they were much better than me, so we played at a comfortable pace.

All in all I had my best round ever at Riverside!!

“I’ll be back!!”

Day was cool and crisp!!! Touch of fall in the air. Not many golfers on course so I got out early by myself.

Course was in good condition, though there seemed to be construction or renovation going on in many areas. Play was unimpeded and I went around the course at a comfortable pace!

Started out with jacket but by 7th hole was in shirt sleeves. All in all a great day to play golf! Wish my game was as nice as the day!!! LOL!!

I booked online and was charged a fee for booking, even though I had a coupon for a round for $20. I ended up paying $20 plus thre booking fee. Was told it was because the online booking is they GolfNow, even though I went thru the course’s own website to book. Online booking should make things easier. This is not right and I am not satisfied. I live close by and am now considering traveling further away to play a different course from now on.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us, however, we truly apologize for any confusion or misunderstanding regarding your recent online reservation. As the online booking engine on our website is provided and serviced by GolfNow, we do have a transaction fee applied there as well, which is common across most online transactional sites in order to provide this convenience. We do apologize if this affected your customer experience with us but hope we have the chance to welcome you back for valuable golf experience soon.

There course was in decent shape. Pace of play was excellent. Greens were on the slow side but consistent. Bunkering was good. Worth the trip if in the Portland area.

It is always a good way to start off your round with a smiling happy face to greet you when you check in and pay. Unfortunately at your course you have a gentleman who does not give you a very nice welcome. He was very rude and very short. My wife asked him a few questions about some clothing and was even more rude to her. This is not the first time we have had a bad experience with this gentleman and to be honest he is one of the reasons we do not frequent your course that often.

Evryhing else was great. The lady who runs the beverage cart was very pleasant and would hold a conversation with you.

After our round we ate lunch and the service was top notch and the food was delicious.
