Riverside is a fun course to play including water on many holes. Open with Mature trees, water, signature peninsula hole and goose poop. If you are close to Grand Rapids, this is one to check out.

South course is OLD. No date of when this was made. Poles for holes (18) and there are a couple that you just need to be creative and make a target. It is fun though and a good warm up or warm down after the Main course. Many people that play riverside don't know about this one. Tee pad for 1 is close to tee for 17 form main course.

Pretty nice course minus the goose turds, make sure you go to the 2nd entrance if coming from downtown GR, otherwise you'll be stuck on the pole course. Couple of scary water hazard shots but nothing too bad.

well, this course keeps me ****ing, and keeps me comming back... fun to chase the Birdies, and the water holes starting at 13 really give a team thats down in the dumps a chance to risk it all and be rewarded.. watching the water discs are always a good laugh if it wasn't "your" shot, the further out, the better... lol, always good people at this course makes it a fun place to show up and see your fellow disc fanatics ;)...

This was a fun course. Has a few challenging holes. Navigation was a little interesting. The people got in the way a couple time but that is expected at a park like that. Cool course.

I would rate it higher if it wasn't always flooded and covered in goose ****. It is a fun course though. Fairly open with a decent amount of obstacles. Don't skip the water holes, they are the best part of the course. Some baskets are pretty old and don't do a great job of catching the discs.

One of the oldest courses in town and one of the most dreaded. fairly straight-forward course with open lines on every hole but half of the holes have water on the left and no hole has water on the right. Poor course design and too much pedestrian activity in fairways along with the fact that the course is under water half the year and covered in about 2 inches of goose poop the rest of the year (a favorite stop for birds migrating both ways) make this course barely worth playing and you'd be better off playing the first 10 holes, then making up safari holes on your way back to your car.

this ole course is the first one that I played on. Back in 1984. I lived near by in the mid seventies. I don't remember it there back then. I do have great memories of this park. LAV raft races.

Awesome views of the river and pond. Sweet shots by the water and walk way. Nice park for all things. I use to fish the pond in the seventies. Fun and fond memories.

The course is in pretty good shape right now. Goose dookie peninsula is even mostly dry. Nice weather brings out lots of picnickers so be prepared to either wait for them to notice you and wrangle their kids or move on to the next hole.

Fun course as long as you don't mind going into a pond to get your disc on a few of the holes at the end. Tests your accuracy pretty good. Majority of holes are fairly open and being right up against the Grand River completes the ambiance.

not terrible, lots of goose poop and close to playgrounds and walk ways sometimes. people always standing/ walking in fairways who have no clue. kids picking up your drive thinking they just found a frisbee gets annoying

when i lived in the grap, i loved this course. it can really suck for a wicked hyzer shooter... you wont leave w as many discs as you showed up w. play a safe round, and you come out w a huge score... take a chance, and you could have a game worth bragging about. love it.

Would give it an A- if it weren't for all the goose sh*t on the back nine.

Great course to air it out and putt. Layout follows the Grand River and plays on an island in the middle of the river. Water on 7 of the holes so muddin is part of the round if you take risks. Couple negatives are tons of bikers along 4 fairways, territorial geese standoffs and flat.

This was by far my most played course, but only because it was the closest course to me. This course has a few good holes, but all in all I am pretty sick of playing here. Nearly every time I go, i see someone fishing for their discs in one of the many water holes, and the water here is disgusting.

Nearly every time I go, i see someone fishing for their discs in one of the many water holes, and the water here is disgusting. I have seen three of my friends have to go into the water to retrieve discs and every time they come out smelling terrible! I routinely skip the hole that is placed on the peninsula because there is so much goose poop. I really like playing the front 9 on this course but the back 9 just poses to great of a risk to loose a disc and step in goose poop. Besides the water hazards, and goose poop I do like this course. Just i am realizing that it makes more sense for me to go out of my way to play better courses.
