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.

Great 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!

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.

Fun Course

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.

Course in good shape

I really enjoy playing this course. The greens are big and are in great shape right now. Be prepared to have some tight lies in the fairways. Pace of play is good and the staff is friendly.
