There slogan is " The Most Challenging Course on the Treasure Coast"
This upscale eighteen hole course is well-maintained. The fast greens are undulating and considered by some as the best in the area. There is an abundance of marshland areas that comes into play on the course. Although the yardage doesn't indicate it, this is a very challenging design, especially from the championship tees. This course puts a premium on accuracy. There are subtle undulations and elevation changes in the fairways. From the forward tees, this course caters to the average golfer. The signature hole is #18, which is unique in that it has two separate greens. From the two farthest tees, this par 4 measures 440 yards and requires a 170- to 200-yard carry over a marsh. The second green, which is considerably less difficult, caters to the forward tees. It too is a par 4, measuring 375 yards, which excludes a marsh carry.

I enjoyed Eagle Marsh Golf Club, a very challenging golf course mentally and physically from the back tees, their are so many blind shots on this golf course. You have to find an aiming spot and commit to the shot. The fairways are narrow with hazards coming into play on every hole. One good thing about playing golf in a Marsh is great smooth and reciptive greens. I felt like as long as i hit the green the ball would stay on with little or no run out. If your looking for a challenge and in the Treasure Coast area and looking for a challenge check out Eagle Marsh Country Club.

The Golf Club at Rio Vista is a true golf treasure found in the heart of Northern California near the Sacramento River Delta in Solano County. Numerous water features, excellent conditions and the challenging but fair design are just a few of the many reasons to play The Golf Club at Rio Vista.
The name Rio Vista, or "river view," is indicative of the wide open scenery, golden rolling hills and glorious peaks that make the backdrop for every swing.

I found this course through a friend. He found it through a online tee time website, GolfNow.com. On a Saturday, we paid $25 with a cart before 8am! This course is well worth the money. When arriving, you go through a gated community. Secluded off highway 12 near Lodi, this course is definately off the path but worth the drive. First impressions are the best and this course has it all. Lush fairways, challenging dog legs, plenty of water (lakes and rivers), good placement of bunkers and the greens are very well kept. With some fairways/holes sunken the winds of the valley can make it even more challenging.
I shot a 89. With having 2 penalty strokes, 1 due to a water shot and 1 OB and plenty of time in the bunkers, I should have been in the low 80s. But this makes me want to go back there again and challenge myself and push it to meet my goals. I recommend this course to anyone that wants a nice place to play, that is well kept, a little drive away but really worth every minute of it. I have made this course one of my top 10 places to play ion the Central Valley. Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this one.

This course is one of my favorite to play in the valley. The course will set you back during the weekday mornings about 35 riding and on the weekend morning about 45. The course is managed by American Golf and is in fantastic shape everyday of the week. My favorite aspect of the course is the greens. The greens are like glass, super smooth, tap it a little and oh man does it run. They are med-hard and stopping on the greens is tough, you need to be able to stop the ball well. The contours of the greens are amazing as well, breaks, dips and dives, challenging you the entire way.
The facility overall is in great shape. Always well kept, the beer cart is running around to retap your thirst, the food is good at the turn for a quick sandwich and the range is well laid out with lighting and an option for a monthly range pass. If ever in the area, this course is one you should hit up
