River Bend Golf Club

River Bend Golf Club combines some of the most unique play in the area with a course designed to provide an exciting golfing experience for players of all levels. Beautiful oak trees and meandering streams give the golf course its character, with elevation changes, multi-tiered greens and challenging areas of forced carry-including water features-and areas of forced lay-up in a links-style course, especially on the front 9.  The back 9 is a more traditional golf course. All of this combined with the Texas wind makes River Bend a formidable challenge for even scratch golfers.  It's one of the only only true links courses in south Texas. The staff is super and the course is very affordable.  River Bend Golf Club has a unique practice facility that features an aqua range with an island green.  A large putting green makes the Maverick a super practice area.

Distance: About 33 miles southeast of downtown San Antonio and worth the trip.  Take Rt 181 from the Southeast side of San Antonio. Located off the 181 business loop (4th street here in the city), coming north or south off Highway 181.  The loop runs north and south, like Highway 181, and runs about 1/2 mile west of it.  The course and facilities are located in the Avalon Subdivision.

    For the $45 it cost me to play they should go buy a tiller to get rid of the weeds in every sand trap. I only hit into one today and it was the craziest thing i have ever seen. Great layout and a challenging course but i just can't get over the traps.

    First time playing here on Aug 7th 2015 and had a blast! Very nice course and although I went alone, I met some great golfers and learned a few things from them.
    Highly recommend giving this course a try.

    Played there a few times this past winter. COURSE WAS EXSTREMELY NICE!! Playing there this sunday.. fairways should be nice with summer grass. GREENS-lightening fast,, way the greens are meant to play. Dont know why people give a bad review.. maybe they have been playing at PEBBLE BEACH to much or woke up on the wrong side of their bed..

    Was disappoiinted from what I'd heard about it in the past. Ok, course if you paid $15.00-20.00 to play. Better public courses in San Antonio for less money
