Riverside Golf Course Hole 1

Riverside Hole 1

Your first tee shot at Riverside is best placed down the left side of the fairway. Be careful to avoid the fairway bunkers on the left. As you turn the dogleg, your approach should be aimed to the middle of the green no matter where the pin is located especially because deep bunkers guard the green on all sides.

Riverside Hole 3

The first of many shots across the Columbia River, this short hole is a challenge when the pin is located to the right behind the sand. It is obvious that you do not want to be short on this hole, but make sure you do not overclub as this green is not as long as you might think.

Riverside Hole 4

A good risk-reward hole, the first par 5 on the course is a sharp dogleg left. How much you want to cut off the corner is the risk, but a shorter second shot is the reward. The wise play is to stick to the fairway the whole way and then avoid the sand around the green on your approach shot.

Again your ball must travel over the river to a large receptive green. There is a often a challenging cross wind on this par 3 shot, but it is best not to get greedy and flirt with the sand to the right. Just aim for the middle of the green and hope for the best.

Riverside Hole 6

The shortest par 5 on the course gives you a good chance at birdie with a long straight drive favoring the right side of the fairway. If you are laying up on your second shot, aim for the left side of the fairway to give yourself the best approach to the green. If you are thinking of going for it in 2, check the pin location, as the back right is significantly more difficult.

Sharp dogleg right will play to the strength of the left to right hitter. Be careful to avoid the fairway bunker though as that would make your approach shot to this very wide but shallow green even more difficult. The sand in front of the green should also be avoided at all costs.

Riverside Hole 8

The soothing sound of the Columbia River to the right of the entire hole should bring you comfort as this is the only par 3 that doesn’t cross water from the tee. Be careful to select the correct club as this long par 3 has a large two-tiered green protected by some dangerous sand traps on both sides.

Riverside Hole 9

This medium length par 4 starts you back towards the clubhouse with a generous landing area. The challenge is in the second shot as there is a large pond that either forces you to carry the entire length or bail out to the left. Just when you thought it was easy, watch out for the sand that surrounds the green.

The back 9 starts with a short, uphill, dogleg left par 4 that will yield some good scores if played correctly. Aim for just left of the 150 yard mark but don’t try to hit too much club or you will go through the fairway. The challenge is on the green as it is two-tiered and has some significant break.

Riverside Hole 11

One of the toughest holes on the course, this long par 4 is difficult from tee to green. The tee shot is best played left of centre as the ball will move right upon landing and you will want to avoid the out of bounds to the right. Same strategy applies on your approach to the green, but make sure you watch out for the sand on the right.

This is another challenging par 4, but because of the downhill, can play much shorter than the yardage indicates. Place a teeshot somewhere in the middle of the fairway and you will be rewarded with a fair approach to this wide green. Shots that are hit short and right will catch the big bunker in the front.

The elevated teeshot may seem intimidating due to the river, trees and sand that spot the landscape of this par 3. There are many safe landing areas however, as the green is large with forgiving bailout spots to the left and short right.

This continuous dogleg right par 5 is the epitome of a risk and reward hole. The horseshoe shape rewards the aggressive golfer as yardage can be saved by cutting corners. The safe play, and often the wisest, would be to follow the fairway around the river to the large two-tiered green.

This long par 4 features an intimidating teeshot with water to the right of the fairway. Do not get too greedy by trying to hit past all the trouble, just aim for the left side of the fairway. The approach shot seems difficult, but the sand only comes into play on shots that come up short as the back of the green is quite wide.

The finishing hole starts with a tough risk and reward teeshot. Long and confident hitters can cut some yardage off the hole by going over the river, the safe play is to aim right and land short of the fairway bunker. Second shots should be aimed for the 150-yard marker and approach shots should be aimed for the centre of the green. We hope you enjoyed your day at Riverside and will visit us again soon!
