Very good value

The course was in great shape although the greens had just been sanded and as a result were in poor shape. Overall very good golf especially for the price.

Good deal

Greens in great shape. Course can be difficult to easy depending on your choice of tees. Fun course with lots of water. Minimal amenities. Good value.

Greens in good condition

The course has been updated about 5 years ago with some new an existing greens redone- in good condition. Some holes shorter and layout changed.
The numerous trees are now larger of course. Therefore the fairway width near the tees and other areas of course has become narrower, so course now has more challenging tee shots.
Overall an improvement to previous course and especially the greens.

Enjoyanle Golf

Riverbend is an interesting course in the Ottawa area. The fairways are tight at times all though the course is laid out well. The underbrush is tough in spots however the greens are quick and challenging. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Can't believe anyone would not think this is one of the best values to golf in this area.
A hidden gem in the rough, you have to be accurate when approaching greens as they are small....but gives you a chance when putting. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Grounds staff did excellent job in maintaining this coarse with the massive rain received this summer......greens have never been in better shape .

Rained out!

Unfortunately was unable to play due to rain the day before. Many holes and several bridges were under water so the course was closed.

course is decent, clubhouse needs work.

The groundskeepers are doing a very good job trying to keep this course in decent condition for play in the face of record rainfalls that are limiting access to much of the property.
For the Golf Now price it is a good deal. Clubhouse facilities are very tired ,so don't go for the postgame activities and clubhouse ambiance.
For a decent round of play at a very affordable price, it's worth the drive.

A jewel in the ruff

This is a decent course that has improved dramatically in recent years.$20 green fees for 18 holes. A real bargain! There are four different tees, blues(6101), whites(5762), reds(5008) and golds(4585).Any level of golfer can play here.The Jock river runs through the course, so water does come into play on some holes. Tree lined fairways, with well manicured greens. I will be playing this course often.

This course is excellent value for the average golfer. It was very wet earlier in the season but is drying out nicely. They've done a lot of work on the landscaping, trimmed the lower parts of many, many of the trees and it's looking good. It's not too busy, and memberships are a good deal.

Course has gone down hill!

I haven't played Riverbend in 15 years. We used to hold family and work tournaments here. The course's layout has changed, but the conditions have gone downhill. Terrible layout, poor planning on holes etc etc. Glad we only paid 11 bucks!
