Riverbend Links

Nice course that can be as easy or as hard as you like...just pick the correct Tee Box. There are no sand bunkers as it looks like they are converting them all to grass bunkers.

Great Course

The greens are firm and fast. The fairways are well kept. This links style course is a hidden gem Photo is the club house from the campground next door

disappointed

Played this course a couple of years ago and liked it. Unfortunately it, as the resorts around it, have really gone down hill. It is still OK but used to be a lot better.

Nice fairways

I’ve been playing this course since it’s been built. I really enjoy the layout and the rural surrounding. The fairways are generous and open. Plenty of water hazards and sand less bunkers. Greens are big and receptive. It floods a lot due it’s location. If you like links golf I suggest you give this course a shot.

Great Golf

Course is one of my favorites. Generous fairways and great layout. Not overly hard. I enjoy playing this course. Greens a bit slow and due to flooding and having only about 4 staff they are ignoring the bunkers for now. Putting their time into the fairways and greens. Go play it.

I’ll play it again

Course is in good shape. Greens are receptive- bumpy but quick. Overall it was in good shape. Lot of rain lately but drainage seems to be working well. If you hit fairways and greens you don’t have to worry about any water left from the rain.
Enjoy

Interesting Course

It’s a good course but the rain we have been getting made a lot more small lakes and made it tough. It’s still a good course and nice people.

Links style golf in the South

This course was a lot of fun. The greens and fairways were in good shape, however the bunkers have not been maintained. I can understand that, given the times as some of the casinos around are no longer operating. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is definitely worth the drive with your buddies to check it out.
