Rating 71.4

The Riverbend Golf Complex sits along the Green River in Kent Valley, Wash. Owned and operated by the City of Kent, the complex offers a championship, 18-hole course and a mini-golf course. The 18-hole course is one of the busiest in the state with more than 65,000 rounds played on it annually. The golf course sprawls across a relatively flat landscape, making it easily walkable. Though it may not be hilly, that doesn't mean it's trouble free. There are more than 50 bunkers strategically placed throughout and three lakes come into play as well. The layout is player friendly, with enough variety to appeal to players of all skill levels.

Whoopsie

When I originally went to schedule the time for 2, it kicked me out and said the desired time was now gone. I attempted to go for a different, but similar time and it accepted it. Turns out, when we showed up for our time, the course told me our time was for "yesterday" and not today. We had to pay full price for that round - AND was charged for the original time scheduled. Is there any way to be reimbursed for the error?

Sincerely, Frank Palmer

Lack of notice

Greens were aerated and heavily sanded

Couldn’t putt

Group ahead extremely slow as two holes opened up in front of them
Skipped a hole to get out in front of them

Ordinarily I like the course and this was a one-off occurrence
