Riverdale Golf Club
Riverdale Golf Club Details
18 holes par 72 (7006 yards)
Riverdale Golf Club was designed by Jonathan Morrow and Al Tikkanen. Their other projects for instance the Red Mountain have risen in fame among Bangkok Golf Courses giving the Riverdale Golf Club which is destined to quickly rise up the ranks. On first appearances, this course does not seem to be that challenging but it will surely surprise even the most experienced of golfers.
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 ones 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.
