Rio Mar Country Club River Course boasts two 18 hole courses, each of which are challenging and beautifully maintained. The meandering Mameyes River runs straight through the course, and rewards golfers with excellent wildlife sightings. Course architects have done a great job of preserving the native flora, and orienting the course based on the natural terrain. The state-of-the-art clubhouse sitting in between the two courses is one of the nicest on the island, where you can rent shoes and clubs if you didn't travel with your own.

Rio Mar Country Club River Course

Course Description

Built in 1997, this course in Puerto Rico has become a classic spot for a round of golf. The greens, hole placement, and bunkers all came from the imagination of George Fazio, the lead architect of Rio Mar Country Club River Course. The golf course features a course rating of 71.3, and its 18 holes measure a total length of 6343 yards.

Rio Mar Country Club River Course is generally thought to be the tougher of the resort's two courses. Fairways are slightly more narrow, and are frequently lined by water hazards. Moreover, greens are more heavily fortified by bunkers. However, the greens are quite large, and bunkers are fairly shallow, making the course playable for beginners and low-handicappers alike.
