Riverdale Golf Club
Riverdale Golf Club Details
18 holes par 72 (7006 yards)
Riverdale Golf Club is a relatively new course and was designed by Jonathan Morrow and Al Tikkanen in 2010. These two also designed the beautiful Red Mountain 18 holes on the island of Phuket.
Riverdale Golf Club has quickly gained many awards and has become a favorite with players and media alike, being just 30 minutes from the city. On first appearances, this 7,006 yards course does not seem to be that challenging but it will surely surprise even the most experienced of golfers. Golf Digest USA said they thought it was one of the most challenging new course in Asia especially when playing the back tees.
The layout of Riverdale Golf Club is made up of a number of vast lakes. The hills found bordering the course and around some of the holes were made with material from the lakes after they were dug up. Adjacent to the course are small villages and factories which do not offer a very pleasant view from the course. Players need not worry about this because the game promises to occupy one’s mind. The first tee-shot leads down the hill where the challenges and intrigues of the game will keep you preoccupied.
Riverdale Golf Club’s layout is relatively flat but has some variations. The course has small reed-lined lakes, raised greens, undulating fairways and good bunkering. This layout adds to the thrill of the course.
Once players have maneuvered through the greens and managed to complete the entire course with a good-looking scorecard, they can enjoy some of the club’s other amenities. The clubhouse faces the 1st and 18th holes. Like the facilities found in 5-star golf clubs, players can change in the first-class locker rooms.
Play Tips: Players should start by playing the back nine. The last 3 holes known “Rice Mill Corner” will require a lot of strength to get your reward. These 3 holes are the dogleg par-4 7th which is a dogleg, the par-3 8th which has several greens among them an island and a pot bunker and the par-4 9th which is an uphill hole.
