River Greens Golf Course, an Avon Park Gem

If you’ve ever visited River Greens Golf Course in Avon Park, you know there are two faces you will likely see that are the glue that hold it all together. One that runs the inside and the other that takes care of keeping the outside nice and green. Owners Rodney and Lisa Davis have been partners and spouses for 40 years as of this year. Contrary to superstitious belief, being married on Friday January 13th has played well in their favor. River Greens is not only a special place in general but even more so because it is the place they met so many years ago.

In 2019, River Greens South in Avon Park will be celebrating 50 years in business here in Florida. Owned and operated by the same man who started it back in 1969 with his father and brother after relocating from West Lafayette, Ohio. Their sister course River Greens North is still located in Ohio and in business today. Throughout the years, the Davis Family’s commitment has stayed the same: To make you feel like family from the moment you walk through the doors and to make the entire experience one that makes you want to tell everyone you know. Rodney and Lisa have seen many faces through their doors throughout the years, but one golf fans may know well is Lexi Thompson. She competed in the Bagwell Junior Tournament at the age of 10, beating out 17-18 years old! She is now a rock star in the LPGA.

Rodney and Lisa say there is no way they would still be in business after all this time if it wasn’t for their faithful customers who have become family.  Stop by and see Rodney & Lisa and play a round of golf at River Greens.
