History

Mowbray Sifton actually started the dream that led to RiverBend Golf Community over 50 years ago. His dream was to see a community that was designed for and catered to the golf enthusiast. He wanted to see this community surrounded by the beauty of nature. He wanted a place for those who were approaching retirement that would encourage a healthy active lifestyle. His dream included the finest amenities. Mowbray’s dream became a reality, thanks to the incredible dedication of his sons and Sifton Properties. Today, RiverBend Golf Community is one of the most desirable locations in all of Southwestern Ontario.

Preserving the natural surroundings of the community has been one of the top priorities of Sifton. RiverBend has shown it’s focus of preservation when, in 2006, they were designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. This incredible designation is only given to golf courses that show an incredible amount of dedication to natural preservation through: wildlife habitat management, water conservation and management, a significantly reduced amount of chemicals used, and environmental planning.
