Located on the outskirts of Fredericton near Durham Bridge, Riverbend Golf Club is a scenic championship course that rambles beside the Nashwaak River. Known for its excellent value, this friendly, family-owned facility enjoys a tranquil, housing-free setting off of Route 628 Highway, just 15 miles from the heart of New Brunswick s capital. Water, woods and tall grass make for a challenging game on a layout that showcases river views. Riverbend Golf Club s varied playing field features an appealing mix of straightaway and dogleg holes. Some of the fairways tuck into narrow, tree-lined corridors, while others enjoy a more open aspect.

Three tee decks give players distance options measuring 5,188 yards from the forward markers, 5,916 yards from the middle, and 6,345 yards from the back. Each nine at the par-71 Riverbend Golf Club features back-to-back par 5s. Holes 9 and 10 are both par 3s. The greens, a strong suit of the club, vary from large to small. Many are elevated with tricky undulations. Chief among the scenic highlights of Riverbend Golf Club are holes 3, 4, and 5 which run alongside the river.
