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.

Apple Valley Country Club -- Not an easy walk but good for practicing woods
Review by: GKT This course has many hills and is pretty long. If there are no carts I would think twice about walking it. There are not water hazards like in the main discription and no sand traps. The course is a little on the open side. Overall good course for a day out if you don't mind the lower scale courses. The fairways are pretty much fields.
