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 invitation.
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!
