Riviera Country Club


Featured Golf Course Review:
Riviera Country Club -- memorable course
Review by: Bob Brown I've played many courses, in several states. None more fun than Riviera. I grew-up in Huntington, playing Riviera, two to three times a week for twenty years. I can remember the swishing sound of the glider-planes flying over holes number 11 and 12 while landing. Hitting old balls into the Ohio River on number 14 and 15. Moving rail cars have saved me many times from out-of-bounds on number 11. We named number 8 after my brother-in law, because he always thought he could cut the corner, but never could. (The Chadwell Hole) I remember when the trees were planted, the lake on number 9 grew, number 16 had a fairway, the mulberry tree on 17 tee, green fees were $1.50 weekdays and $3.00 on weekends. The best news is, I played Riviera a couple times last year, and it was in great shape. Anyone playing this course will enjoy the scenery, the clubhouse, parking, and the challenge.

Orchard Hills Golf Course -- At least it's cheap
Review by: Concerned Golfer This is a good course for beginners, but it is not unlike a cow pasture. After the 3rd hole, there is no real cart path. From the 6th to the 8th hole, not cart path at all. There is no real fairways at all. You cannot distinguish the fairways from the rough. On the up side: The greens are well maintained; no dead spots in the grass, (unlike Sandy Creek Course in Ashland, KY). The gas-powered carts are well maintained, as well. This is a very clean course; trash containers at several tee boxes. This course has a nice clubhouse and a person is able to purchase quality clubs, balls, bags and attire. In my opinion, the only real reason I rated this course with one star is b/c of the fairways. Thanks for letting me voice my opinion.
