Riverbend Golf Course shows off its newly remodeled range

Updated: November 1, 2021

Riverbend Golf Course in Kent has re-opened its driving range after a re-model project. Riverbend is one of the most popular golf courses in the Pacific Northwest and its driving range is always busy. The re-model project added space and size to the range, including 13 new driving range stalls, new restrooms and a remodeled interior for the pro shop building. The new stalls will soon be outfitted with heaters and computer ball flight technology. Riverbend now has a total of 45 hitting stations as well as six learning stalls.

The construction project also expanded the parking area around the driving range and removed the mini putt course. The landing area for the range was expanded and new targets were placed in the grass infield for golfers to work on their short games. The entire ball washing system has now been thoroughly updated with the addition of a new soaking tub, new ball washer and new high pressure blower system that feeds the balls into the dispenser. 

The new stalls also include windows which can open and close. Riverbend Golf Course is also the home of a popular winter series of tournaments. First up is the 4th annual Four-Player scramble on Nov. 27 followed by the 24th Annual Two-Person Better Ball on Dec. 18. The 24th Annual Two-Man Scramble will take place on Jan. 15 before the series wraps up with the 26th Annual Ball Buster on Feb. 12, which will feature a Two-Player format.

Riverbend Golf Course is annually one of the busiest golf courses in the Pacific Northwest. It also has one of the largest Men’s Clubs in the Northwest as well. The 18-hole course opened in 1989 and was designed by John Steidel.  The course plays over 6,600 yards from the back tees. For info call 253.854.3673.
