Course Reviews

Played here for the third time. will play again. this course is under rated. Believe the reviews. This is a nice course. Good value, good food, nice course conditions. Give this course a try you won't be dissapointed.
However I noticed a couple things that bothered me worth mentioning. No ball washers anywhere on the course. The carts are in need of repair. I tried different ones and they all sound like their falling apart. Noisy and rattled alot. This course gets hot in Summer. Course sits in a river valley and is protected from most breezes. Prepair to sweat. Also Grounds crew was everywhere. Almost in the way. Curtious but a disstraction. Otherwise nice course.

A very nice round of golf. The course is challenging but fair, well maintained, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The greens are fast and you need to bring your "A" game with your putter if you want to score low. The price per round is the only thing that knocks the value and overall score down for me. Too steep for my pocketbook to make it a regular place to play.

I enjoy playing this course but the staff along with some of the members are rude and walk around like they have a club shoved up their arses! This is supposed to be a sport to enjoy and relax,the Shooter McGavin conduct is not cool. But overall the course as usually was flawless!

Family live in Fresneck! I was not expecting much in this neck of the woods. BUT.....I was very surprised. Awesome course. Must play again! Got parred with an older gentlemen that's from the men's club.

I have never played with a person where you spend less than 3 seconds....and that's for reals...hits the putt into the hole. At the end of the day he shot a 77.

Great time here! Must play for sure!

Went to go play with my son and found that the for the new person they can be quite rude. They only seem to want to get rid of you. WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN

A must play if you are in the Fresno/Yosemite area.

Nice course

Riverbend sits in a meadow near the river, although no holes are on the river per se. The course is marked by open space and big old Oak trees and each hole has personality. The finishing holes are wonderful and challenging. The front nine is a bit target golf and risk reward golf: the back nine open spaces for the grip and rip crowd.

The staff are great and the food services quite adequate and reasonable. I have never had a bad experience at Riverbend.

Out of town visitors look forward to playing. There is something for every skill level.
