River Downs Golf Club has undergone multiple transformations since it was constructed in 1995. None of the them will compare to the upcoming transformation under the new primary ownership group of Patricia and Dennis Raver, and Richard Isaac.
Not only have Patricia and Dennis lived in Finksburg for almost 25 years, they have been proud residents of River Downs for the last 10 years. Patricia brings over 20 years of experience in customer service, financial analysis, accounting, and business management. Dennis has over 25 years of experience in operational management, environmental analysis, engineering design, and large-scale commercial construction management.
Starting out at an early age at his grandparents golf course, Worthington Valley Golf Club, Richard has always had an affinity to create the best playing environment for the guests. Since his purchase of River Downs starting in 2007, Richard has focused continual improvement of the tees, fairways, and greens.
The new ownership group is excited about the changes underway and still to come. Many guests have already noticed the completely remodeled club house, upgraded golf carts, new landscaping throughout the course, tee box markers, and the many other changes. Still to come over the next 12 months are new cart path bridges, cart path repair, improved course playable through tree and vegetation removal, tee box landscaping, Friday –Sunday beverage cart service, and continual improvement to turf and bunkers.
