Review Summary: If you like short fairways and fast greens this is not the course for you!! From tee to green, this course was in the worst shape of all of the courses I have played this year. Most courses are thriving with the great weather we have had this spring but Rum River looks as if we have had a horrible spring!! Suggestion: They should be putting the money into the course and not the club house!
Conditions: Greens were slow and very rough and bumpy. Fairways were average at best with alot of ground under repair and other spots that looked like winter kill. Tee boxes were in average shape.
Scenery: It has some pretty holes and mature trees.
Layout: Lots of water and quite a few doglegs but is a pretty short course.Plays 6300 yards from the tips.
Services: Service was good and the people are very nice. Currently, the clubhouse is going through a make over but is offering a full bar service and menu.
