Staff issues but great course

First id like to start off and say that this is a great course. It’s challenging and the greens are fast, lots of up hill holes. I play this course a lot as it offers fair prices. They could do a better job maintaining the tees, some of the par threes have almost no grass it seems. Now to address the staff issues. There’s mostly women who work there who are very friendly and make sure I enjoy the course and come back. There’s a older man who’s works in the pro shop (probably in his 50’s, bald) who is very unfriendly. Im a part of JGPA which provides me with a discount to play at the course and he’s seen me there over this summer about 10+ times. He’s seems to always try and get me to pay more than necessary. He’s always emailing the director of JGPA complaint about me even using my card which is absurd. Other than that great course and I’d definitely recommend playing.

A course where accuracy trumps distance, be careful where you place the ball off the tee...

I'm going to start with the service experience because it couldn't have been better. The gals in the clubhouse were friendly, eager to help, and went out of their way to ensure my wife and I had a great time at rivers Edge. They really set the stage for a wonderful day.

We started on 10, which is wide, open, and friendly;11 after it was fairly open as well (at least until the final approach shot on the par 5) and I had the notion that this was going to be a rather tepid walk through the Bend foothills... but then things got a bit more interesting.

As I went on (and especially once I got on the front 9), the course narrowed and the elevation changes really started to kick in. Several holes offer blind approach shots if you are not relatively long (at least ~250) off the tee (some even then) either due to doglegs or elevation rises in the middle of the hole.

it seemed very few holes are flat and due to angles and natural features some of the fairways are appear to be pretty tight targets from the tees. Fortunately, there is a decent amount of open space you can't see from the tees and more provisional's than I'd like to admit to hitting were never used (in fact none of them were used).

The other things that became readily apparent at rivers Edge is that, if you want to score, ball placement off the tee is at least as important as distance. I played the gold tees, which weren't overly long, especially when downhill shots are taken into consideration; however, more than one drive that I thought was perfect turned out to be blocked by a tree protecting the green. This is certainly a course where your scoring would improve more than usual based on the number of rounds you played and your accuracy off the tee.

My favorite hole was probably #6 Which only requires a mid-iron off the tee (I hit a 6i) to leave yourself a wedge or 9i up into the green. However the green is quite elevated and both sides are protected by rock facades, so there is an intimidation factor. Between the waterfall off the rocks and the bridge to approach the green, the hole is both manageable and beautiful to play.

I found the track in really good condition, the greens were quick but ran well and held good shots into them (two things that don't always go together). I was a bit concerned by the first (and only) bunker I found myself in, as it contained a *lot* of rocks; however I made a point to look at the other traps as I made my way around the course and it was the only one. It was near some construction so I'm certain it was a fluke and will be remedied soon.

We played mid-morning and despite a frost delay n things up a little bit, the groups in front of us moved along quickly and we only saw the majority of them once after we got going. The one group that was playing a little slower waved us through on the first hole we waited, so even that wasn't any kind of inconvenience.

Overall, I'd say be careful if you're not terribly accurate (and maybe stow the big sticks if they present this kind of problem) as you could go through a few balls here, but other than that it's a very pretty course that provides enough challenge without being over-bearing.

somewhat hilly course

River's Edge has a lot of elevation changes. A few places where it is difficult to see the aiming direction. My wife would have preferred the red tees to be moved up a bit.

Beautiful but very challenging!

I’m a 15 hc and hit the ball quite well that day, but the greens killed me. Very fast and lots of slope...normally don’t 3 putt, but I had at least 5-7 that day...shot 94, and should have been 85-88.
Very hilly So you’ll need a cart!
Panorama views from hill tops are spectacular!

Perfect all the way around

The course is hilly so it is difficult to walk 18. You can walk 9 but the 9th hole is a good climb.
Staff were great, it was great weather and we were mildly surprised that it wasn't super busy for a holiday weekend.

Very fun course

We had a great time. We got a great deal. We paid $25 a piece for 18 holes with a cart. The couese was in good shape. Its not too difficult but is challenging. The abundance of sage rats and rock chucks adds character.

Start time delayed

Course appeared to be overbooked. They offered a cart with the round, yet did not have a sufficient number of carts. We were late starting waiting for the cart.

Very friendly pro shop staff

We were greeted by the very friendly pro shop staff and given an early tee time. The course was in excellent condition, however it remains a tough course with many slopes that need to be taken into account.

Tough to walk...

I played in early March and the bunkers were in very rough shape. The first hole is one of the dumbest designs I've ever seen, having said that I only played the front nine and after the first hole it was a very enjoyable layout with quite a bit of elevation change which makes it tough to walk. I will go back and play The Back Nine

Fine course layout and conditions for November. Well defined grass cuts, fun greens. Mule deer kinda get in the way and don't rake the traps. Great vistas!

Rivers Edge

Staff was very friendly, course was in good shape, some of the greens were a little bumpy but that is expected for fall golf in Central Oregon. I will play there again as long as the weather holds out. It was sunny and 68 degrees and no wind, doesn't get much better then that. Played with a foursome and finished in under four hours.

Riversedge is an enjoyable challenge

Riversedge is a very enjoyable challenge. The front nine has a lot of variety with a lot of vertical holes. The back nine has a lot of long holes with one hole that looks like a ski hill, some of the holes provide a great view of Mt Jefferson.. If you enjoy hiking, I would walk this course. I have walked it three times. The pro shop staff is very friendly.
