Second time playing this course and this tike was better than the first. I went the first time and their greens were very firm and it was hard to get anything to stay on the greens. This time the greens were soft and rolled perfect. This course is always in excellent condition. The course layout is fun but not to hard so it makes it really enjoyable.

Fun course

Fairways, sand traps and roughs were in good shape. Greens held the approach shot, rolled true and were medium speed on the front side and a little slower on the back side.

Interesting course

Fairways and roughs were in good condition. Sand traps were hard packed sand. Greens were medium speed on the front nine, medium to slow speed on the back nine, held the approach shot and rolled true.

Riverbend is a gem

I have played quite a few courses and I would say this is one of my favorites. Tee boxes are large and relatively flat. The fairways are beautiful. The greens are some of the fastest I’ve played., and well maintained. Bunkers are always in good condition. Carts are nice electric club carts. Practice putting green is big. Nice driving range. Bring your A game!
Overall nothing but good to say.

Great Course.

Awesome and friendly staff. Patriotic.

Layout, 5 stars. No two holes are the same. You have to think on several regarding placement.

Tee Boxes were in nice shape.

Fairways are narrow,but the first cut is not Goin to punish you too bad. I only hit two but still managed an 85.

Greens were aerated 2 days ago but still ran true.

Small clubhouse, but has most of what one needs.

Golf carts are in good shape.

I wish I lived closer as this is a course to consider joining as a full member.

I look forward to the next round.
