Riverlakes has some challenging holes (water) it is a good looking course, priced at a good rate. It doesn't have a large clubhouse but it has some very good food and it is big enough for weddings.

The links is a good fit for Bakersfield. A notch above the county courses and not as snobby or expensive as the country club. The bar inside is a good place to have a cocktail after golf or just to have a drink. Food is...More
