Rivercut Golf Course now reopened following April flood

Rivercut hole 10

Rivercut Municipal Golf Course is fully reopened and operational following the April flooding event. All 18 holes and the driving range are drained, clean and ready for golf.

Celebrating the reopening, Rivercut is offering the Mother’s Day Mulligan event May 13-14, with $10 off greens fees (including Golf Patron Plan members) and free golf for moms all weekend. Combo meals are just $4 all weekend.

The James River flooded into Rivercut Golf Course April 28-30, covering the front nine holes and much of the parking lot, surrounding the Connie Morris Golf Learning Center and entering the maintenance building. Rivercut was closed for a week as Parks staff diligently cleaned mud and silt from the greens and made repairs. Two tournaments were relocated to the Bill & Payne Stewart Golf Course. The back nine holes reopened Sunday, May 7. By Friday, May 12, the entire course was open. 

Repairs continue in the Connie Morris Golf Learning Center, including removal of damaged drywall and baseboard. The maintenance building had minimal damage.

Rivercut is an 18-hole championship course planned by master designer Ken Dye. At 7,066 yards, with a par of 72, the course is both unique and spectacular. Rivercut is located at 2850 W. Farm Road 190, just southwest of Springfield, along the James River.
