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.

Cacapon Resort State Park -- Nice experience
Review by: P. Bonerigo If you like a more traditional course, you must give this a try. The Jones Sr. layout has many enjoyable, fair, and yet tough challenges. Everything is in plain view. The greens offer many undulations and yet putt true. They were somewhat slow later in the day. The fairways are fair and offer good visuals from the tee. Water is in play on a few holes. The entire experience was very pleasing. The course is in nice shape, but if you're expecting highline resort type conditioning you may be disappointed. If you want a quality design, a great view, quiet, and a good test, I suggest you make your tee time.
