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.
