While visiting friends in Venice, had the opportunity to play 4 rounds of golf at this course last week. The course is in excellent condition though starting to dry in some areas due to a lack of rain. The course is challenging and the greens are tough. The fairways are well maintained and the greens are very nice. The greens... More

Always enjoy playing here. The two guys we got paired with where a lot of fun even if we did spent a lot of time looking for their golf balls. The course was in awesome shape. The greens were rolling great. Only a couple of bad wet spots in the fairways after the all day rain the day before. Everyone... More

I have nothing bad to say about Venetian Golf and River Club. The only problem was I had a tee time and was bumped for one of their members. The lady in the club house was very rude and unapologetic. I think they need to hire a better club house employee.

From arriving and being greeted at the bag drop, we had a great day. $25 each for golf including range balls and cart. Free iced water at numerous points around the course was a welcome sight. Course was nice and had some interesting holes and challenging greens. Good food and drink in the clubhouse and well priced. This place is... More

Played here January 29, 2014. It is a private course during the winter and they are very disciplined in keeping the tee times at comfortable distances. The greens are super fast this time of year due to dry weather. Plenty of undulation on all greens makes putting a major challenge. In many greens, just touching the ball (really) would move...

Comfortable and attractive dining salon. Perfectly cooked and presented food (I had salmon to die for). Attentive service even though we were part of a large group (about 80 people) for a Christmas Dinner. One of few places where a prepaid service tip does not detract from excellent service.
