Riverview Golf & Country Club
100928 County Road 19, Scottsbluff

This Scottsbluff public course lies to the west of Scotts Bluff National Monument. The front nine plays tougher than the back with water on three holes and tightly tree-lined fairways. The fairways have many small plateaus and ridges. Holes six through nine are as scenic and challenging as any four-hole series in the state. The sixth requres a 150-yard carry over a pond to a narrow green; the seventh starts with a tee shot over water, between two cottonwoods, to a fairway leading steeply tilted green.

Riverview has the distinction of having Nebraska’s only floating driving range. If you like good golf and eye-pleasing scenery, you’ll enjoy Riverview. Tee times not required weekdays; required 1 day in advance on weekends.
