Welcome to River Bend Golf Links! The Only Public Course in Green Cove!
The amenities are nice but the real star of the show at River Bend Golf Links is the high quality of the course. Ownership has worked hard over the years to maintain the beautiful layout, with its small, fast greens and bunkers, strategically placed throughout. The fairways are lined by mature southern pines and oak trees. Play at our course ranges from 4,679 to 6,031 yards, with water on a few holes. This is a course that caters to players of all ages and skill levels. Don't be surprised if you end up reaching for every club in your bag. River Bend Golf Links has provided a glorious golfing experience, with 18 holes of par 72 golf, a full-service restaurant, golf range, golf putting and practice facility. And don’t forget that friendly staff! Redesigned by David R. Bouck, the course opened in 1950. Current Owner Rhonda Ferguson, Superintendent Steve Bouck and our outstanding crew promise you a great experience. The course rating is 68.2 with a slope rating of 114. River Bend offers a fun golf experience to all levels of players. At River Bend our history and hospitality are sure to capture your heart!
This is a course that rewards accuracy and course management over the ability to knock it off the planet! Straight, accurate and smart is the way to play River Bend. At the ripe age of 60, the foliage has had plenty of time to mature. Because of its previous life as a dairy farm, you can rest assured there is plenty of mature trees narrowing this links style course. That's what's so great about the entire layout — if you play it as it's laid out, you’ll be rewarded with birdies. Get greedy or get sloppy, and you'll be digging in the woods or in your bag for another ball!
