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.

Locust Hills Golf Course -- Nice, quiet place to play
Review by: Phillip Woeckener Locust Hill has that rare combination of length, challenge, and affordability. I picked a beautiful Sunday afternoon in mid September and headed out to this previously unknown location. Man was I pleasantly surprised. I walked it in 3 hours, by myself with no distractions or holdups by groups either in front of me or behind me. You don't come to Locust Hill for the fancy clubhouse, or cute beer cart girls. You come here to play golf. With no one on the course, it was simply me, my golf game, and God. And for $20 it is a heck of a deal. Outside of the bunkers having water in them the course was in fantastic shape. Definitely worth the trip from wherever you are coming from.
