“Annual Guy's golf trip”
Review of River Bend Links

River Bend Links
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The name alone conjures up images of wind swept treeless terrain, and that is exactly what River Bend Links is. Golf course architect Clyde Johnston describes his River Bend Links course as "a field of dunes". Clyde transformed this cotton field into a marvelous Scottish links style course. Built next to the Mississippi River where animals still inhabit the area, during the round you may see deer, fox, or wild turkey.

“Annual Guy's golf trip”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

River Bend Links is in good shape for early in the season. A little standing water due to the heavy rain a couple days before but this course drains well. We have played here on our trip for many years. It is a little more open than Tunica National and Cottonwoods but has a lot of hidden trouble...water, bunkers and squiggly weeds. We had two groups playing and we all had a good time. Reasonable price and deep discount for a second 18 if you are feeling 36 holes. I hit my first Eagle on a par 4 this past weekend on hole 16. Drained it from 130 out...it was awesome and all the us were high fiveing. The course was not overly crowded so we were not pushed and could enjoy a few cold ones as we played. We will be back again next year. Watch out for fire ants...around the squigglies and sand.

“Excellent time!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Course was in very good shape. Greens were excellent!!! Never putted on better. Staff was wonderful. Links style takes getting used to windy and hilly
It doesn't get any better. Will definitely play again, can't wait for daughter and son-in-law get to play it. Looks like Scotland except everything was green.

“Needs a little work from the flooding”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

It's an interesting course but it needs a little work. They did have problems with the flooding a few years ago and with a little time, it'll come back in great shape. I'd play it again in a heartbeat though.

“Scotish Links”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great golf course on a absolutely gorgeous day. The course was very windy which made you feel like you could be in Scotland except you can see the Hollywood and Resorts casino in the background. The course was in very good condition from tee to green. The course is owned by three of the casinos. I thought we received a lot of value for our money. Definitely worth going back again.
