Architect: Robert Muir Graves
River’s Edge Golf Course was designed in two phases beginning in 1987 by the late Robert Muir Graves, whose portfolio also included Big Meadow at Black Butte Ranch.
Graves, who also worked extensively in Hawaii and California, was intrigued by the lava rock and the dramatic geology around the Deschutes River and incorporated many of those elements into the design, choosing to build the course into the landscape rather than around it.
At River’s Edge, each hole is unique and different with just the right amount of bunkers, water and dog legs to keep you challenged . River’s Edge remains one of the most scenic and unique courses in Central Oregon. It is the perfect combination of shotmaking and scenery.
