Our Course

The best kept secret in Central Alberta is the River Bend Golf & Recreation Area! The Red Deer River majestically wraps itself around the River Bend Golf Course and 420 acres of forested parkland. With an 18 hole, par 72 championship course, a 9 hole Mini-Links course, a large Driving Range with matt and grass tees, two pitching greens and a large putting green, a first-class C.P.G.A. staffed Teaching Centre inclusive of video swing analysis, a full-service Golf Shop, Grill Restaurant & Patio dining, and all food & beverage services for Banquet facilities in the Clubhouse, we are confident we will meet and exceed your expectations for quality and value in your golf, out-door recreation, retail and culinary experiences.

Add to those features a free Discovery Canyon Out-Door Water Park with a Concession, lakes for fishing, a canoe/raft launch, 9 kms of hiking trails along the Red Deer River and in the hills above the river basin, and dozen of picnic tables throughout the park available for public use. For runners, hikers and biking enthusiasts, the River Bend Golf & Receation Area is part of the Waskasoo Park System in Red Deer and is connected by ashpalt trails to 3 Mile Bend off-leash park, and beyond on the trail system to Bower Ponds, Great Chief Park, and at the end of the trail Heritage Ranch.

There's more still! In winter months the River Bend Golf & Recreation Area is Central Alberta's premier Nordic Sports Centre, with 15 kms of groomed cross-country ski trails, a Biathlon Range, and ample space for snow-shoe enthusiasts as well. We have something for everyone, year-round!

River Bend Golf & Recreation Area really should be your family's recreation destination in Central Alberta! We invite you to join us, and look forward to welcoming you back time and time again!
