Pros:
On same site as two other 18=hole courses, all sharing a common tee-1 and tee-18 area. Colour-coded baskets and natural flow made the course easy to navigate. Tee areas containing all the essentials - flat, concrete teepads, signs, benches, trash receptacles.
Cons:
Some tee locations very close to the previous basket, and blind from the tee fairway - throwing down to blind basket-9, with blind tee-10 just to the right, is particularly dangerous. Straight-up #14, followed immediately by straight-down #15, followed by straight-up #16 is a bit tough on the knees.
Other Thoughts:
Lacking the oscillating shortness of Ridgeline, and the water-potential and length of Streamside, the more-typical-but-still-varied Riverview is neatly tucked between its sister courses, which all share the open space and tree-filled ridge sitting above the Togus. After the initial hole requires you to avoid a small grouping of trees/brush on the way to a basket neatly-placed amid a stone formation, the second hole offers you the opportunity to play towards a moated-basket - or kindly provides the option to play to an alternate basket away from the water. The course then heads towards the top of the tree-filled ridge, over slightly-undulating land, fairways beginning to be formed by the scattered trees and brush. Holes 8-10 take you, initially gently, then steeply, downward across the slope of the ridge via a broad path defined by the ever-thickening woods. Several holes play through fair throwing lanes formed by the trees towards/at the bottom of the ridge, then comes steeply sinusoidal 14-16 in rapid succession. Exit out the back of tight #17, and open-18 leads back to the tee-1 area shared by all the courses.

The complex is still a work in progress - trees were being cut-n-cleared the day I was playing. While mulch and wood chips have been laid down in many areas, much more needs to be placed on the damp areas near/at the bottom of the ridge. Certainly worth a visit, and $10 to play the three courses all day seems reasonable.

Good all-around course with plenty of variation to it.
