Welcome to Golf


The 18-hole championship golf course was completed in 1961 and has matured into one of the very finest in the area. The par 71 course, measuring nearly 7,000 yards from the championship tees, is both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all skill levels.  Greens, tees and fairways are bent grass with a modern watering system. An expert greens staff keeps the course in excellent condition.
Golf facilities include a state-of-the-art additional practice facility, which includes a 9-hole executive course, indoor hitting station, bunker, and short game practice areas.  Putting greens are located adjacent to the main clubhouse. The golf pro shop adjoining the clubhouse features a large retail area with an extensive selection of golf equipment, clothing and accessories. The professional staff offers group and individual instruction using the latest teaching techniques.

The Club’s golf activities include a full schedule of tournaments and special events.  There are programs for retired men, women (9-hole and 18-hole groups) and juniors. In addition, River Bend participates in various men’s, women’s and junior interclub programs.

River Bend has a full schedule of golf events each year. Highlights are the Dogwood Three Day Member-Guest and the Member-Member Championship. We also offer a full complement of men's, women's and junior golf events. Our staff of PGA Professionals provides instruction for golfers of all skills and ages.

Golf Course

River Bend and Keith Foster developed the master plan for the renovation in 2003. Mr. Foster has renovated many of the top classic golf courses in the country. The renovated golf course was reopened on July 1, 2011 coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of the club.

The golf course features dramatic holes woven through the mature, hardwood trees and hills of Northern Virginia to produce some spectacular vistas. Classic stonework walls and bridges frame the ponds, streams and hills throughout the course. Highlighting the course are holes #9 & #18, two handsome par fives that return golfers to the clubhouse and highlight the rolling hills, lakes, and cascading streams.

The par 71 course can be played from seven sets of tee markers, from the Black Tees at nearly 7,000 yards, or the Family Tees on the front nine, providing an appropriate challenge for our youngest and newest golfers.
