River Bend Links is a par 72, 6,900-yard masterpiece featuring lakes, sand, grass bunkers and strategically placed mounds. We are a Scottish link-style course. The name alone conjures images of a wind-swept treeless terrain, and that is exactly what guests see during a round at River Bend Links. Golf course architect Clyde Johnston describes his River Bend Links course as “a field of dunes.” Clyde transformed this cotton field into a marvelous Scottish links-style course. Built next to the Mississippi River where a bounty of animals still inhabit the area, during the round you may see a deer, fox, or wild turkey.
River Bend Links was originally created through an unusual alliance of three casinos that saw the need for alternative entertainment for their guests and the public. Resorts Casino, Hollywood Casino and Sam’s Town Casino joined forces to build this links-style course, in the Tunica area of Mississippi. In May 2011 the property was flooded, and after an extensive course rehabilitation, it is now privately owned and operated.
