Nice course. Needs work

Nice open layout with enough challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The greens need some TLC to bring this course back to it's great condition

Decent course could be better

The course has a great layout to be a fun and challenging course. But it needs to be maintained a lot more. Pretty much every green had several dead spots and wasn’t due to lack of watering. Greens were plenty wet and extremely soft. Several dry dead spots in the fairway and Tee boxes weren’t much better. If you don’t mind this for the price I recommend getting out and playing it. This course has the potential to be great with a little TLC.

Perfect weather

Lot's of fun!

Visiting New Bern for a couple of days and found River Bend. Staff was very friendly and they were able to partner me up with two members (Joe and Mike were great guys!). For February, the fairways were in great condition and greens ran smooth. The course is pretty open with lots of water on the back nine. *** Veteran Friendly ***

Used cart

Nothing out of the ordinary

This is a good course to play on a saturday afternoon. it is always dead and the range is great, however the staff can be somewhat obnoxius and they will treat you like a 2 year old when explaining the cart rules. The greens are surprisingly smooth, but the are slow. Not bad overall. The front nine has no water and the back has water on 7 of the 9 holes.
