Riverbend Country Club is a traditional, private, full service
member owned country club located in the heart of Sugar Land,
25 minutes south of downtown Houston, Texas. Established in
1957, Riverbend Country Club provides recreation, fun, and camaraderie
for members and guests in a beautiful and comfortable environment.
Club amenities include 18 holes of championship golf, full game practice
facility, student centered/quality golf instruction program, fine and casual dining,
tennis, swimming, fitness center, and wonderful locker room facilities
that are among the best in Houston. The Club is committed to maintaining
a beautiful golf course, exceptional amenities, friendly personalized service,
and a tradition of membership by invitiation.
The golf course was originally designed by Press Maxwell Jr. in 1957.
Maxwell has designed a number of notable courses including Prairie
Dunes Country Club in Kansas (with his father Perry Maxwell) and
Pecan Valley Golf Club in San Antonio, which hosted the 50th PGA
Championship. In 2010, notable golf course architect Jeff Blume added
his touches during the $1.4 million dollar renovation. Mr. Blume’s
additions to the course included new bunkers and rolling fairways,
completely redesigning several greens and installing
Bermuda Mini-Verde to insure consistent and favorable greens speeds.
These improvements added to the already impeccable
reputation of being one of Houston’s most aesthetically pleasing, challenging,
and yet, fair test to all comers.
Members enjoy and appreciate the tree lined fairways and gently
rolling terrain of Maxwell's original traditional park style layout.
With a number of well bunkered greens and water coming into play on
13 holes, Riverbend CC is a formidable challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Over the years, Riverbend CC has had the distinction and honor of hosting
several USGA events and numerous high profile charitable events such
as the Carl McCain Annual Classic and Jacob Green Charity Classic.
Riverbend Country Club and its members take great pride in their
participation with the community and its neighbors. An interesting and
little known fact is that Ben Hogan once held the course record at the RBCC!
