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 .

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

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.

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.

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!

Riverbend is an average golf course but It can be a good way to spend a couple of hours on a golf course that is not crowded. It is very flat and lacks a bit of character.

The price is cheap , so you can't complain about that though and it is easy to walk.

As in the name a river flows through it. It is a flat course and with the amount of rain we 've had, there are many wet and muddy places in the fairways currently.<br/> Quite featureless other than going back and forth over the river. Housekeeping of the clubhouse is fair or less.

THEY dont keep the grass short enough if you land in the fairway you still cant find your ball and the greens need a lot of attention.

Calling this location a country club is likely calling a big mac a filet minon. The cost of the course and the cart is both over priced and the quality provided is more closer to playing in a rice paddy. Safe to say the owner is looking via Golfnow to attract as much $ without putting any of it towards maintenance.

Very disappointed.

fairly straightforward course, reasonable care of greens and fairways, good price for 18 real holes, a few interesting holes but nothing too challenging, couple tight bends and some small greens, few water traps and high brush to avoid ...
