All the holes on the Riverside Golf Club are between 70 and 140 yards. The first nine-holes offer distinctive challenges of their own. The first two-holes vary from up-hill to down-hill whilst the back of the third-hole green possesses a different height. The four-hole offers a water-hazard and long rough, and whilst the fifth-hole is the shortest on the course, several more hazards make it one of the toughest holes on the course. Hole-six is dominated by rough and obstructing trees make the seventh-hole the most difficult. Your tee-shot on hole-eight will be played blind whilst a slopping green ensures difficultly in holing your putt on the ninth-hole.
