River Bend Golf Club
River Bend Golf Club combines some of the most unique play in the area with a course designed to provide an exciting golfing experience for players of all levels. Beautiful oak trees and meandering streams give the golf course its character, with elevation changes, multi-tiered greens and challenging areas of forced carry-including water features-and areas of forced lay-up in a links-style course, especially on the front 9. The back 9 is a more traditional golf course. All of this combined with the Texas wind makes River Bend a formidable challenge for even scratch golfers. It's one of the only only true links courses in south Texas. The staff is super and the course is very affordable. River Bend Golf Club has a unique practice facility that features an aqua range with an island green. A large putting green makes the Maverick a super practice area.
Distance: About 33 miles southeast of downtown San Antonio and worth the trip. Take Rt 181 from the Southeast side of San Antonio. Located off the 181 business loop (4th street here in the city), coming north or south off Highway 181. The loop runs north and south, like Highway 181, and runs about 1/2 mile west of it. The course and facilities are located in the Avalon Subdivision.

Fairways and tee boxes need mowing. Greens are full of some kind of blight that are killing the greens.
A course marshal would be helpful on the weekends to help keep up the pace of play if the course continues to allow groups of five and six to play together.
The staff members were very helpful pleasant to the customers.
Great course that just needs care.
The course is located in Floresville and it's quite nice. Though not a pristine course it is very good for the price. The staff is always friendly and the carts are in good condition. The course is well maintained and looking great.
Like This Course
It’s a fun place to hit the golf ball; hopefully, the maintenance of the course continues to improve.

Greens slow and punchy. Fairways Ok, not great. Good layout however.
Greens Very Bumpy, many Tee Boxes overgrown with weeds
Played here many times; typically a good value. This time the course conditions were sub-par. Tee boxes overgrown with weeds, greens very uneven. Pin positions today were ridiculous, like it was Sunday at US Open.
I may return once players say the course conditions have improved..
Good overall but could easily be better
We played using a Hot Deal low price green fee with a late afternoon tee time. There were only a few groups on the course along with a single or two. No one held us up and we easily let singles play through.
The course is mostly as described in the About section. It is set in an open area of gently rolling hills with newly developing neighborhoods alongside. The driving range is a lake into which you hit floating balls. The practice greens are small.
The fairway grass is a bit spotty and the greens are close to being very good following recent treatment. The bunkers are in good shape and abundant but are easy to avoid due the wide fairways.
The main thing this course lacks is proper signage and/or a course guidebook. There are blind landing areas for tee shots plus dogleg holes that are hard to picture from the tee. The scorecard and the tee box signs lack any hole maps or diagrams. Some signs are missing. The carts do not have GPS.
I do give them high marks for having five tee box choices plus a sign at the first hole with recommendations on which ones to play based on age/handicap. All courses should do this.
I really like this course. The greens have recently been sanded but should get better quickly.
Great peaceful game
Customer service was wonderful I even came across a raccoon after me hitting the drive great natural and nature course
It is a good course but the back nine was piled up with players but over all the golf course is good I would go play it again on another note would like to see the lay out of golf course don’t know if you all carry maps of holes. We were blind sided with the holes.
Terrific place to play golf
I've played this golf course over 50 times and still can say I've never been dissatisfied by the maintenance or for that matter the challenge of this course. Number 9 is wide open but is one of the longest par 4's I've played, with the wind almost always in your face it's the most challenging to try for that negative number. Overall one of the finest municipal around....
