River's Edge Golf Course

Of all the unique settings for a golf course in Central Oregon, River’s Edge in Bend tops the list. Carved out of the lava rock and natural landscape near the Deschutes River, this 18-hole layout offers a challenging and unforgettable golf experience that complements the incredible surrounding scenery and dramatic elevation changes.

River’s Edge plays to a maximum distance of 6,683 yards from the tips. The forward tees provide a more manageable length of 5,340 yards, giving players of all abilities a reasonable test. An even mix of dogleg left and dogleg right holes require consistency off the tee, and water features come into play on more than half the holes. The greens are elevated, which places an emphasis on hitting quality approach shots.

To many players, the 344 yard par-4 6th is one of the facility’s most memorable holes, requiring an accurate tee-shot, followed by a forced carry approach over a water feature to an elevated green protected on the right side by a 25 foot waterfall. A par on this hole is definitely an accomplishment! Additional highlights include the 216 yard par-3 16th, a setting that perfectly encapsulates the signature elevation changes featured throughout the round. The hole requires careful club selection (i.e. club down!) to a green complex that is situated some 300 feet below the tee!

The friendly staff and manicured fairways along with some of the best greens in Central Oregon, have earned River’s Edge high marks on serval ratings sites. For the adventurous, GolfBoards are available to rent, giving players an alternative to traditional transportation, while providing a riding “experience” within a golfing experience. At River’s Edge Golf Course, an affordable, one-of-a-kind opportunity awaits the traveling golfer, and the local player alike, right in the heart of Bend.
