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.

Haven’t played in a while but this is the worse I have seen the course, The tee boxes where horrible including the fairways. The greens looked good but that’s about it
A nice place to play
A quiet course about 25 miles south of San Antonio, Texas. Very friendly staff. Clean facilities.
We’ve always loved playing here. The course is very “clean”, and we know it will get better with some spring rain and sunshine.
Golf Now Hot Deal for $10 - played round in 2.5 hrs. Great value for the investment. Fairways don’t exist and greens are slow.
Greens were nice.
They did not over seed the fairways. Consequently, weeds are growing in. Fiarways are hard. Greens were in very good condition. The Bermuda was starting to come out.
GN price $10 - was first off (single) and played 18 holes in 2 hours. Course conditions were so-so but remember it’s still January. Greens are in fantastic shape.
Great and awesome experience
‘‘Twas a great course. Awesome experience with great greens and fairways perfectly maintained. Although the cart path was a bit rough, that is an easy fix but altogether was a great course
Day in Floresville
Enjoyed the layout of the course, just enough rough to make you drive smart, hazards were well maintained and not too hard.
Had a steady wind all day which helped keep mosquitoes away, will definitely plan another day trip here.
As you pull up it may seem like you’re getting a great experience but don’t be deceived. The course was absolutely terrible, the greens were over grown as well as the tee boxes. The fairways are terrible and unwatered, there was damage to a lot of the course. This is your basic hack around and get drunk with your friends kind of course. Definitely not worth $32, this course is at best a $12 round course.
Fair warning - this is only the second Texas course I’ve played. I just moved from South Carolina where I played rather frequently, and I must say I am in love with this course. Interesting layout, thoughtful multi-level greens, and great condition!
If I could suggest one improvement: upgrade the tee box markers from painted bricks to something more fitting for such a nice course!
Well maintained and beautiful golf course
The golf course was very well maintained and beautifully designed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Good course layout. Several challenging holes. Fairways and greens in good shape.
Nice out-of-the-city course
Fairways and greens were in good shape. Some of the greens were due for a trimming; a little fuzzy. Pace of play was very good. Would recommend to any of my golfing buddies.
I enjoyed the course immensely. Some short holes and very wide fairways. Greens can be slow when you're left with long uphill putts. You may 3 putt more often than usual. Greens are large so putting the ball on the proper side of the green is paramount. I hit it long since the fairways were running. Big issue was the bare spots around the greens, especially right up in front on short approaches. Mishit sand wedges cost me a cpuple of shots due to bare lies. I think it may be due to too much cart traffic greenside, or lack of water. Nice track though. I really enjoyed playing here.
This course is really coming along, the conditions are better than average in San Antonio.
