River’s Edge Golf Course Sold to Homeowners Association
The River’s Edge Community Masters Association has announced its purchase of Bend’s River’s Edge Golf Course.
Association members completed the sale and received registered title on Friday morning.
“It’s a wonderful day for the community,” said association president Jeff Kramer. “We saved the golf course and in doing so preserved a beautiful and valuable convenience for our owners, and an iconic public golf course for the community of Bend.”
In April 2021, it was announced that former owner Wayne Purcell would sell the golf course to Pahlisch Homes to turn it into a 372-home development.

Following the announcement, a number of owners of River’s Edge filed two separate lawsuits to save the golf course.
The River’s Edge Masters Association was formed specifically to purchase and operate the golf course.
It includes the four homeowners associations within the community: River’s Edge Owner’s Association, Upper River’s Edge Owner’s Association, Majestic Ridge Homeowner’s Association, and The Pointe Owner’s Association.
The golf course will remain open to the public.
Kramer said they have big plans for the course, starting with some upgrades.
“We’ll start by improving the fitness of the course and then work to make it a more enjoyable course for everyone, whether you’re a golf ace or just a beginner,” he said.
“We also plan to improve the clubhouse restaurant and make the overall experience of coming to River’s Edge one that will keep people coming back.”
The golf course was designed in 1987 by the late Robert Muir Graves and extended to 18 holes in 1992.
