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.

Ev-Un Breth Golf Course -- Nice upgraded course
Review by: Ron Pugh Over the last year Mike Rogers has done wonders in making this a really fun 9 hole course. The greens are in good shape and the fairways are beginning to take grass and will shape up really well into next season. Number 2 is a par 5 over water that usually makes me hunt for a second ball. Number 3 is another par 5 to an uphill green that is difficult to see the flag until you have already hit your third shot. Number 9, a par 3 over water usually takes at least 4. Recently changed its name to Riverbend Golf Course with new owner and pro Mike Rogers. Green fees reasonable.
