Very Sad to see the end of this course

Course was in excellent condition. We play it multiple times each year. Sadly it has been sold and will become houses. It is a fun and unique course.

Say it ain't so!

Rivers Edge will be the first course to sell off land (for housing of course). Last time a course closed in central OR was Orion Greens in the 90's...as if anyone in Bend even remembers that course.

I always have liked the challenge and variety of layout. Course in decent shape, considering the hot/dry summer.

Not the best bang for your buck in Bend, but worth playing one last time! Back 9 scheduled to close for housing by next year.

Course Being closed

It was fun layout wise, it’s a shame that its being sold. The course has been over run by gophers so you can have some trouble if you hit it in a gopher hole in the middle of the fairway. Greens were OK, some were inconsistent. I would have been fine paying 40$ for this course, but 70+ is not worth it.

Not worth $69 greens fee

The course is in bad condition and not worth the high cost of the greens fee. Our cart’s battery died 8 holes into our round. The course is apparently being sold to be developed into homes so it seems the owners don’t care to keep the course playable. Stay away from it.

River Edge

I have played this course at least a dozen times and still have not figured it out. Has a couple of really tough holes if your not put the ball in the fairway. #1 par 4 is a very interesting starting hole that most likely drops almost 200 feet around a corner. Also #16 par 3 does about the same thing but only 100 feet down. You don't really want to walk this course its a lot of up/down hills. Sometimes a long way from greens to the next tee. Fun place to play over all. Lots of golf courses in Bend to choose from just how much do you want to pay or torcher yourself. I play 130+ rounds a year and at the moment 9.4 handicap.

Greens are awful

Apparently this course is going to be torn out for housing. The practice green is in great shape but on course were not maintained. The golf carts are very old and our parking break wouldn’t hold. Pace of play was great as there wasn’t anyone behind or ahead of us. Maybe the locals know it’s not in great shape. Course layout is interesting.

Played only 9 holes,Tough course

I had hoped to use a push cart and walk the course but there was not a cart available (first time I've ran into that), so I rented a power cart for an additional $17.

Played the course about 20 years ago and had forgot how challenging it is. Course was in good shape though.

Excellent weather. Good day to plan. It’s sad to hear that this course won’t be here after next year. They are selling it and building homes.

Nice track

I’ve never seen as many gophers on a golf course in my life.
Hilly track with some blind shots here and there but fun ones too.
I found the greens a bit inconsistent.
I played it about 3 hours ….no one there. Teed off at 11:00 am

Rivers Edge

Course conditions are improving pretty well for early spring. Starter should have told us at the beginning that the back nine was closed rather than being intercepted by maintenance people on the 10 tee. Not a good value as such.. For walkers they still need a courtesy shuttle between 8th green to 9th tbox to keep pace with non walkers in carts.

Poor course conditions

A lot of spots on the course were greatly over watered and the turf was way to wet and there was actually standing water in some places. The greens were very rough.
