First opened for play in 1987, the 18-hole course at River Bend Golf and Recreation Area lies beside Red Deer River, within a 420-acre parkland property where families can also fish, hike and cavort in the water park during the summer.

The layout extends to 6,664 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 72, with holes arranged as two returning nines. Water hazards feature at half the holes, especially around the greens, and the 5-hole sequence from the 3rd to 7th is largely dominated by this aquatic influence.

Notable holes include the 441-yard par four 2nd, doglegging sharply left to the green; the 533-yard par five 9th, with a lake running along the right of the fairway; the shortest of the par threes at the 147-yard 14th; and the 438-yard closing hole which narrows considerably as it reaches the home green.
