Riverside Country Club was originally established as The Saint John Country Club in 1897, with members playing on a 5-hole short course. In 1911, the club moved to East Riverside on the banks of the Kennebecasis River, occupying 250 acres of the former Douglas Milk Farm, and two years later a 9-hole course was in play, with the club initially operating under the name of Riverside Golf and Country Club.

During the late 1930s, the course was extended to an 18-hole layout and remodelled by Walter B. Hatch, design associate of Donald Ross, and Ross is also said to have paid several visits during the reconstruction. Ron Pritchard was engaged in 2007 to produce a restoration master plan and the club has slowly but surely begun the process of implementing the architect’s recommendations, one or two holes at a time every year.

Bunkers are being upgraded, some new tees installed, a number of greens have been rebuilt and a fair amount of tree clearance has taken place. As at the summer of 2020, the project was still only about two-thirds complete so there’s still a bit to go until this Donald Ross gem has been fully polished.
