About The Course
The amenities are nice but the real star of the show at River Pointe Golf Club is the course. It was designed and built in 1995 by renowned golf course architect Mike Young. Our challenging course has been recognized by Atlanta Golf Magazine as a top-tier course, and it was also voted “BEST OF THE BEST” among golf courses in the Albany area for four consecutive years.
The course has water hazards on 14 of the 18 holes. The front nine is a traditional type of course with the back nine built around wetlands with accurate shots being a premium. This course offers Tift Dwarf Bermuda on the greens and “419” Bermuda Grass on the fairways. Wildlife is plentiful. During a round of golf you might even see deer, turkey, fox, geese, otter, alligators and many types of birds.
The course is open year round. Reservations are recommended for weekend play. Amenities include a practice range and putting green. The signature hole is #14, a five par measuring 610 yards with water down the left side and in front of the green. Once the water has been cleared, the fun begins on this sloped green running from back to front. Correct ball position on the green can be a reward with a chance for birdie or just trying to two putt for par.
Our course is unique and enjoyable, a definite challenge for golfers of all skills. Call for a tee time today and let our Golf Professionals and their staff set you up for a day of golf to remember!
