This course is located in the foothills of Riverside. The hilly fairways are undulating, somewhat wide open, tree lined and loaded with a variety of elevation changes. The water hazards only come into play on two holes, #10 and #18. There are many large sand bunkers placed strategically around the greens and on the fairways. The large greens are undulating, fast, and difficult to read at times because of the sloping terrain. Even when the weather is hot, the maintenance crew works hard to keep the greens soft enough to hold your shots. Many of the narrow fairways are lined with out-of-bounds stakes, and all of them are bordered by a thick cut of rough. The most difficult hole on the course is #11, a 441-yard, par 4, requiring a long tee shot up a sharp-breaking dogleg left fairway, then a long approach shot to an elevated green, if you come up short you'll find your ball sliding down a steep embankment to the right, leaving you with a blind third shot. In the late afternoons, the wind becomes a factor, making this already difficult course a little more strenuous. This club is home to the SCPGA Senior's Championship and the Inland Empire Amateur Championship. During the summer months, this club offers an afternoon special, which includes a green fee and cart.

This course is located in the foothills of Riverside. The course is in excellent condition, and the greens are firm and fast. The sloped greens vary in size and many of them are protected by greenside bunkers. The fairways are somewhat open, heavily sloped, and the grass is sparse in some areas, however, there are thick tree lines and a standard cut of rough defining each hole. One of the more difficult holes is #12, a 213-yard, par 3, requiring a lengthy tee shot to a heavily sloped green, you must hit your tee shot to the left side of this green, because it slopes heavily from left to right, if you want to have any chance at a birdie. Many holes are lined with out-of-bounds stakes, so an errant shot can mean disaster. One of the most scenic holes on this course is #3, a 301-yard, par 4, with a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside from off the tee box.

This course is an excellent place for the whole family to come out and play. It is both very enjoyable to play, and at the same time very challenging. One of the more demanding holes is #8, a 433-yard, par 4, requiring shots into a prevailing wind. Herbert Fowler redesigned the course in the early 1900's.

This course is very beautiful because it is next to some mountains and provides some great views. If you like a challenge, this is the right place for you to come. Max Behr added nine new holes and redesigned the others in 1923, and Walter Fovargue, William P. Bell and William H. Johnson have also contributed redesigns over the years.

El Rivino is one of the more scenic public courses in the greater Los Angeles area. Located amid the Riverside foothills, the course offers enough variety of terrain to challenge even the most advanced golfer. The fairways are narrow and tree lined on some holes and wide open on others. There is absolutely no rough on this course and only a small number of well-placed sand bunkers. However, there are five ponds that come into play on at least eight holes, and out-of-bounds areas come into play on many other holes. One of the more notable features about this course is its first hole, a 626-yard, par 6. The entire course is very picturesque, including beautiful flowers, wildlife and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
