Not a 4.5 Star Course
Was visiting family in the area for the Holidays and came across what i thought was going to be a great deal on a very nice course. Listed as $44 at regular price and found a hot deal for $28/person. At arrival i could tell this was a 2 star course at best. I will say that the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Other than that, the course was a dud. Greens rolled better than I expected but were very square and plan. Tee boxes were worn out. It is not a terrible course but, when trying a new course and relaying on the rating system to make your choice it was disappointing. I have played course rated 3 stars that were head and shoulders above this one. If i would have had to pay full price to play I would have left and let the serves fees be a lesson learned.
UNBEATABLE FOR A HOT DEAL PRICE
If you're in the area this course is a must play. The greens are better than any private club I've played on. Fairways were very hittable but just didn't look the part. Good lies, just doesn't have the plush look to it. If they would plant shubbery and make the course look better this could easily be a private course. Once again, best greens I've seen in years.
great greens.best I have played this year. . Greens were fast contrary to the pace of play!!
Great course, just give it a couple weeks till you tee it up !!
Got a good deal on GolfNow with an early tee time. It rained. ( stormed.) the day before and they didn’t get finished punching the greens due to the storms. They had put sand on all but maybe 2 greens and #2 was playing as a par 3 instead of a par 5. Not sure what they were doing to that fairway. We didn’t find all this out till we arrived. The gentleman in the Pro Shop told us what was going on and gave us a free round of golf on our next visit. After starting on 1 and when we go to 4 they told us to start at 10. After our round (21 holes) the guy in the Pro Shop told us we could play as long as we wanted for no charge. And of course I had to be somewhere @ 1pm or we would have played some more. Great staff, nice course but I would call them directly to see how the course is before booking in the near future !!!!
Great course for the price
It’s was well worth the drive from Belmont. Couldn’t ask for a better price for how good the course is kept up. We played before it got too hot and had a lot of fun. You can’t hit over 200 yards on the range though or chip on the practice green. We will go back plenty.
Hot day but good time
Me and the wife played this course for the first time and a good time. Course e was very challenging for us as we have been playing a short time. Fair amount of water, fairways were a little long, but greens were great. Will play again. Staff were very nice.
Some of the best greens!
First time playing this course. I came here from South Charlotte and it was a bit of a haul. Was very happy I made the trip. The greens were some of the best I've played this year. Tee to green the course was in good shape. Course also had a very good layout. Only problem with the course is that Hole # 2 which is a par 5 is playing as a par 3 with temporary tee boxes while they work on the tee boxes and fairway. Pace of play was good on a Sunday morning as we were the first group off the tee and finished the round in less than 2.5 hours. Course is priced just right. Will definitely come back.
Great Public Course
You cant beat the River Bend YMCA course for a great local, public course. Phil and his staff do an awesome job. They are glad to see you, the run the local First Tee Program and actually encourage youth golf and the growth of the game. The course itself is in really good shape right now. The bermuda greens are extremely nice, they are rolling very smooth and fast. The 5th green does seem to have some damage on it from the winter but its out of play. They are also redoing the irrigation on the Par 5 second hole, so it is currently playing as a temporary par 3 which makes the front a par 34 and a stretch of 4 holes (2-5) with 3 par 3s. The fairways and tees are cut and have full coverage and are in good shape. The sand traps are full of sand, and alot of work has been done to improve the course as well. If you are there in the area go play. You'll be glad you did,
Always a great time.
Course is always in great shape and a challenge for any skill level. I drive 40 minutes to play and have no regrets
RiverBend Golf Course
Greens are in excellent condition, they are doing some drainage and maintenance around the course but it’s still in really great shape. Phil and the staff are 5 stars all the way. I’ve never been treated better at any golf course than the way the staff at Riverbend perform. They make you feel at home and are very friendly and accommodating. 5 stars all the way around.
Greens are always in EXCELLENT condition. Found a nice surprise on hole #2, when we saw they removed the large tree guarding the green. Makes your approach shot in more managable. Staff is always so friendly and helpful. Had so much fun on our intial 18, we decided to squeeze 9 more holes in. Quite an enjoyable day out on the course! Thanks.
Even though sections are under repair the greens are fantastic. #5 green is spotty, but the other 17 are in great shape. Upgrades still going on, but well worth the money.
Someone needs a medal for the idea of taking down the tree on #2.
Fairways were like hitting off concrete greens were beautiful just took 3 shots to get there because of fairways
Greens Great, staff friendly
Played on a Tuesday afternoon, so the course was not real crowded and pace of play was not a problem. The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcome. The course is still growing in early in the spring, so the fairways, tees, and rough are hit and miss. But give it a month or so and they will be in great shape. The bermuda greens although probably not growing alot yet are very smooth and a great putting surface. The crew has cut down a number of trees making the course much more playable and player friendly. Its a good local course that is great for an afternoon round that wont take forever.
Great Value , friendly and knowledgeable staff
Fun golf Course, fair and friendlier now the big tree on #2 is gone, gone but not missed. Best greens in Cleveland County, great pro and staff. I recommend to all golfers at any skill level
Despite work being done on, in, and around the course, it's in good condition. Some dryness, but overall good condition. Staff is always helpful. Very good people.
Top notch greens
Staff is what's great about Riverbend. They have everything you need in a golf course there. Even a practice bunker.
