River Bend Golf and Recreation Area announce changes to management

River Bend Golf and Recreation Area will have new faces behind the operation in 2019.

The Board of Directors announced the restructuring late Thursday, citing demands changing substantially over the last five years.

MacPherson has been involved in the golf industry over the last 36 years.
