Riverbend Country Club



About Tradition and the Golf Course...

Riverbend Country Club is a traditional, private, full service Members Owned Country Club located in the heart of Sugar Land just 25 minutes south of downtown Houston, Texas.   Established in 1957, Riverbend Country Club has provided recreation, fun and camaraderie for our Members and Guests in a truly private environment.

Club amenities include 18 holes of Championship golf, exceptional practice facility, PGA teaching professionals, fine and casual dining, tennis, swimming, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and one of the most exquisite locker room facilities 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 additional bunkers and rolling fairways as well as completely redesigning several greens complexes and installing Bermuda Mini-Verde to insure consistent and speedy average greens speeds.   These improvements only added to the already impeccable reputation of being one of Houston’s most aesthetically pleasing and challenging but fair test to all comers.

Members still 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 is a formidable challenge to golfers of all abilities.   Over the years, Riverbend 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 and its Members take great pride in their participation with the community and its neighbors.   Another interesting and little known fact is that Ben Hogan once held the course record at the Club.
