Owner description: Minutes north of Daytona Beach, you'll find some of the most challenging and beautiful golf anywhere. At this 6,821 yard, par 72 course, situated along the Tomoka River, each hole is distinctive. River Bend is designed to use every club in your bag and features a dual ended driving range, practice greens and bunker, fully stocked Pro Shop and a full service club house. Always great golf and great rates.

“This used to be our favorite course........”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

This used to be our favorite course. We live in the area. It is still the most attractive course in the area and we love the layout. Problem is, they have dropped the rates and are doing a volume approach to making a profit. We played today, with a tee time and we waited, and waited and waited. We finally had to jump around to play the entire course. They allow walk up singles to play on Saturday and Sunday further clogging the course. The absolute slowest pace of play in the area. There is no ranger, no one to control slow play. It was a total waste of money and time. We have other courses we like that charge more but we'll be going to in the future. This is summer! This is the slow season for golf here! Pay a bit more and skip golf for the masses at Riverbend. It's a shame, nice course.

“A great place to golf!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011 via mobile

Great place to golf! I absolutely loved this course! Fairways and greens are excellent, staff is very friendly and if you wait till after four green fees are only $12 with cart included. Will definitely play their again if I ever come back to Florida.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

The 10 of us who played here unanimously raved about this course -- the layout is superb. In addition, the greens are excellent, and the general condition of the course is very good. One negative: it is located right beside a busy airport, so there is the constant buzzing of planes taking off and landing. But, how can you beat $30 for 18 holes, a cart and dinner! A great addition on the course would be a beer cart.

“Nice Course, Friendly Staff, Great Rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

We played River Bend on a weekday afternoon in the offseason. The rates were $21 with cart after 2pm. The greens had recently been aerified and topdressed, which made putting a nightmare. We would have tried another course if we had known that they had been punched and were so unpleasant to putt on. The course was well maintained, the lady at the pro shop was very friendly and personable and the driving range was not busy. The course could be better marked for distances, but is a fun place to play otherwise.

“My favorite public course in Daytona Beach area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2007

This course was a pleasant surprise in an area overflowing with golf courses. Well laid out fairways and a couple of monster par 5's (they had one 620 from the black tips). Near a muni airport so there is the noise factor but not too difficult to bear. Price was right at 38.00 for 18 w/cart on weekday. I go to Ormond Beach every year for a week in March and always arrange to play River Bend...sometimes twice. It's not top notch but it is fun and affordable. Also, course was sold in 06 and under new management so look for some improvements.
