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 and Widgi Creek Golf Club.
Originally conceived as a nine hole golf course, River’s Edge was expanded to 18 holes with the acquisition of the upper half of the property in 1992.
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.
While some of those elements have been softened over the years to increase the playability, River’s Edge remains one of the most scenic and challenging courses in Central Oregon. It is the perfect combination of shotmaking and scenery.Visit Website
