Course Overview


Founded in 1989, River Hills Country Club was designed by the renowned golf course architect Joe Lee. River Hills is conveniently located in the River Hills Community adjacent to FishHawk, just 20 minutes from downtown Tampa.

The private Joe Lee Signature course is an 18 hole, par-72 layout measuring 7,007 yards from the championship tees. The lush tropical beauty and natural scenery of River Hills create the perfect backdrop for a great round of golf. The well protected greens, contoured fairways and the 67 perfectly placed bunkers make River Hills a true test of golf. Full of challenges for the more experienced golfer, River Hills is also forgiving enough to be enjoyable for players of all skill levels. Those that play the course for the first time rave about the playability and always comment that the greens and fairways are the best in the area.

Throughout the year, golfers of all calibers enjoy outstanding playing conditions on manicured Bermuda fairways and CHAMPION Dwarf Bermudagrass greens ~ the same putting surface found on 12 PGA Tour venues, including Pinehurst No. 2. In the National Turfgrass Evaluation, CHAMPION had STIMP meter speeds at nearly 2 feet faster than other ultradwarf grasses.
