Riverfront Golf Club first opened for play in 1999. The course was designed by Tom Doak.
Riverfront is an old-style course that winds its way through riverfront acreage, tidal marshes, huge oaks and pines and vast rolling farmland. It offers a truly amazing setting for a great round of golf.
Designer Tom Doak sculpted the beautiful layout to take full advantage of the natural beauty surrounding it. It is a waterfront golf design. Tees are typically at ground level, the fairways are generally wide and friendly and chipping areas are plentiful. Large deep bunkers, combined with undulating greens make shot-making crucial. All but three of the 18 holes are bordered on one side by natural features, whether tidal marshes skirting along its fairways or undulating greens at water's edge - with beach bunkers on three sides. Mature pines, oaks and sycamores overhang the marsh, adding beauty and majesty to the design.
Riverfront Golf Club measures 6,357 yards from the back tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 70.3 with a slope rating of 129.

Riverfront Golf Course ranks in the "Top 10" (for public courses in the state of Virginia) annually by Golf magazine and deservedly so. I have played it almost every Monday for the last 2 years as a member of a golf league. It is always in good condition. If I had anything negative to say about the course - it would be the same thing I say about all the public courses I play in southeast Virginia: "sand bunker maintenance can always be improved." But I understand why that is the case - it is a labor intensive task, and thus, an expensive proposition for any golf course.

Love this course, play it often. Large, fast, undulating greens are the big challenge--you need to stay below the hole. Can be frustrating the first time out, if you don't have someone along who knows where to hit it.

Semi-Private club. Winds through housing development with several homes in the line of fire for some golfers. Difficult to walk due to distances between holes. Have played course many times at different times of year and have never encountered anything less than superior conditioning. Greens are extremely large for this area and quite undulating, and generally fast. Expect several three/four putt greens. One of the more difficult layouts in this area.
