Riverbend Golf Complex
The Riverbend Golf Complex sits along the Green River in Kent Valley, Wash. Owned and operated by the City of Kent, the complex offers a championship, 18-hole course and a mini-golf course. The 18-hole course is one of the busiest in the state with more than 65,000 rounds played on it annually. The golf course sprawls across a relatively flat landscape, making it easily walkable. Though it may not be hilly, that doesn't mean it's trouble free. There are more than 50 bunkers strategically placed throughout and three lakes come into play as well. The layout is player friendly, with enough variety to appeal to players of all skill levels.

Course was nice just had aerified the greens so not the best but it’s not golf season till after the Masters so plenty of time to get in great shape.
Fun course. bad conditions
I do love the layout of this track. Let me be clear on that. But the greens were in awful shape today. Not smooth at all, inconsistent speed on practically every hole. Some rock hard in March? The next one soft as could be and the ball stopped immediately. Very frustrating for conditions wise. Once they get done punching next week I'm sure they will be back to pristine like I'm used to from here.
Great day for golf
The course was in very good shape. The pace of play was very slow so we only played 9 holes. They were super busy because of the unusually sudden warm weather. Thy are under construction so there was no eating or drinking facilities. Over all it was good though.
Thank you for the great feedback Jinylee! We love hearing from you and are glad you had a good experience. We would love the opportunity to bump those 4 stars to 5. We hope you will come back soon so we can WOW you on your next visit. Until then, take care!
Nice course! Fun holes! Well maintained. Thank you course superintendent and staff for making Riverbend the best winter courses in the area. Great shape!! Also....very reasonable rates.

Good course especially after all the snow
Fairways are pretty dry. Soft smooshy greens right now but we did have a lot of snow
Wet day at Riverbend
Tee'd off early, course was almost empty. December in Washington means your getting wet and we did. Only managed to get in 9, standing water on greens ended our day. Clubhouse under construction and the cat behind the counter was a good dude. Fun course, more challenging than you would expect from a muni. Worth getting out to if you can.
Nice round of golf in Dec
This was my first round at this place and it was very nice even after all the rain during the Winter. The staff was very friendly and attentive for the need. Pace was excellent to finish 18 holes in less than 4 hrs. Greens were good considering all the rain. I will play here again and recommend this gem in Kent WA.
only played 9 holes
We only played 9 holes due bad course management. He over booked tee times and it was very crowded. We were just standing there waiting for the line to move. He didn’t seem to care. So not coming back to this course again. Would like a refund.
Good shape, wide fairways, friendly staff, need a restaurant
This course is a good value for the money. We paid only $26 Sunday morning due to the greens being punched the weekend before. All considering, the value was nice given the aeration. The layout was fun with many hazards thoughout. Water is in play on nearly every hole and bunkers are abundant. I would recommend this course for someone who wants a challenge and does not want to pay high green fees.
