I love everything about River Place Country club. First, the golf course is perhaps the most scenic in Austin. Actually, it is the most scenic that I have played. Second, the restaurant and bar are great after the new re-model. Finally, the staff is friendly and fun. I highly recommend becoming a member at RPCC.
Great Course , Great Fitness Facility
We came out here to see about using the space for our wedding. Unforunately the Director of Catering was not available that day but we knew that going in, we just needed to see the space to see if it would work.
I thought the price was great, especially for the amount of space you had. the views from the hilltop were great. The gentleman that was there just agreed we could do/have whatever we want. (well of course you can with the exception of alcohol.. these folks have to make that $ up somewhere, no? lol
The back window wall was nice, with views of the golf course (which may not be so green in December as they were @ Cimmarron Hills...) but I digress.
Ultimately what made us keep looking was the fact that it was quite far from our ceremony site @ the church and the area felt a bit 80s. Also there was a smell we couldnt quite pinpoint what it was as we walked in the main area. We couldnt tell if it was because maybe it had rained and the wood didnt like it and was emitting a foul smell? Hmm I guess if they used some scentsy and maybe painted the doorway we would have signed but in the end we chose to go with a closer location. As they say in real estate: location, location, location.
Course in great shape (with exception of a few greens on the back nine) and majestic views but pace of play was poor. One foursome had five groups backed up on holes four and five. We called the pro shop to get a ranger out there and they completely ignored us. We finally quit after 15 holes since we were already six hours into the round. Very disappointed that we couldn't finish our round.
The Best Scenery I have ever seen on a golf course. Went here on a Groupon and it was definitely worth it. Every Hole was picture perfect. You will prob lose a few balls on this course. I will def. be back. I hear it is on golfnow.com for $50 per round. Neighborhood is one of monster extreme houses - fun drive.
