27 holes of golf

The Red Deer River encloses River Bend Golf Course, wrapping around the course and 420 acres of mature forests. The location along the river bottom flatland provides a peacefully secluded setting that is ideal for a round of golf. On some holes you'll find towering trees tightly lining the fairways while other holes are hillier and more open, putting them at the mercy of the winds. No matter what hole you're playing though, the design places a premium on accuracy. Two massive lakes as well as a few smaller ponds come into play on a total of 10 holes. In addition to the golf course, River Bend G.C. also boasts a nine-hole "mini links" course, a par-27 layout that is gentle enough for juniors. There's also a driving range with target greens and a practice bunker.
