We’re at River Valley Golf Course hanging out with Hanah for the Building Brighter Dreams golf outing!

Make sure to check out their organization and see all the great work they do for these kids!
Played with 3 handicapped players. They were told in the clubhouse that they could drive the carts closer to the tees and greens. The owner of the course was playing in front of us. On the 14th tee he drove over to us and said we had to stay on the cart path. The cart was maybe 3 feet off the path. When we explained that the players were handicapped, he said we still have to stay on the path. He said that they water the tees and greens every night and the ground is soft. The ground under the cart was hard packed dirt. Around the greens we made sure we parked in the ruff close to the green. He told us if we left now he would refund our money. When we got to the clubhouse the staff person said he told them to only refund $10 of the $40 we paid. We will never go there again. I don't like being lied to.
This weekend's shaping up to be beautiful! Look at all that GREEN!
Good close to ladies league! #2017RV #ChicswithStix

Just your friendly reminder Adel!!!😁


With our last few days of our season in sight, we want to take a moment to thank all of our customers, employees, family & friends for another great season! We are beyond grateful for your support and help to keep making our course better and better each year.

Our last day open will be Sunday, November 7th, which we will be hosting our postponed Misery & Bliss Chilli Open. We do still have spots open, but with the nice weather this weekend, I'm sure they will fill up fast! Please call in to sign up! Team prepay is required at sign-up, $220/team.

Our last day of open daily golf is Saturday, November 6th, so call in or go online to book those last rounds of the season with us!

I'm sure you all are wondering why we are closing right before a really nice week of weather, but as you know this time of year the forecast can change in a day and the extended forecast looks dismal. We need those few really nice days to get the course put to bed properly, so we can to get through the winter and be in good shape come spring.

Thank you again for another great season, and we wish you all the happiness this holiday and winter season!

We are now looking for some part time help for our maintenance crew. Please reach out to us if interested.


Many know that we had the opportunity to host the 3A High School Girl’s State Meet, but few know the work it took to get ready for those two days or the work we did during the event.

The real rockstars are those that worked and volunteered their time to help us prep even though we didn’t have the heart to ask that much of them. They all went above and beyond what we could’ve asked, and we definitely wouldn’t have had been ready if it weren’t for them.

So, to those that volunteered and our amazing staff, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. We can’t even begin to tell you all how much we appreciate you... We truly could not do any of this without you!

It was an amazing opportunity, and we are thankful to the Girl’s Union for selecting us to host. We are just sad we missed out on last year! We are looking forward to hosting again one day! 😊



We are having an informational / social meet and greet this Thursday, the 20th, from 5:30pm - 7pm for anyone interested in playing in our ladies league this year. If you are new to the area or a past player, I encourage you to stop out! Snacks will be provided.


Phones are back up!


Sorry if anyone is trying to call the clubhouse this morning... our phones are currently down!
