September 2017 Newsletter: Upgrades & Renovations

Happy September to all our Residents, guests and friends!

Rio Bend is enhancing all areas to maintain the finest RV and Golf Resort in California.  For the Golf lovers, last year we replaced all the greens by Simplot Company which matched the quality of Pebble Beach. This year we are replacing the sand traps and bunkers with white sugar sand. The golf shop deck is going to be the place for all to enjoy.  The additional cover with gas heaters, lighting and fans will make the environment comfortable when it is chilly or hot, and screens will block the wind if needed.   A fire suppression hood vent and deep fryer was installed which will allow an expanded menu that will include the ever-popular French fries, onion rings, fried calamari and much more. We won’t forget our favorites like the Reuben, the Baja Burger and those delicious barbequed hamburgers and brats. We are installing a sophisticated RO system that will improve the water for coffee, drinks and food that will be healthier and tasty for your enjoyment at the Golf Snack Bar, Pool Bar and the Buckboard Café Kitchen.

The Golf Snack Bar

More materials are being delivered daily for the new patio cover to give us more shade while we enjoy the great food services and a wonderful view of the golf course and putting green.

The fire pit is still there and you will be able to sit out under the stars and enjoy an evening around the fire.

Your pet friendly park just got better!

We have added a luscious green run space for your dogs to exercise without damaging their paws.   We still have the playground gravel area with the tunnel, bridge and even a fire hydrant and there are several different places for the “Mom’s and Dad’s” to sit, too.

We have a great management team this year including:  Felipe-pro shop, Bob-golf course, Julia-food service, Judy-bar, Ricardo-maintenance and Nancy-office. Sandi will be back with Activities and Carolyn will be here, too.  We also have a wonderful lineup of staff members to assist with guest services.

We are all looking forward to a great season that includes YOU!

The Pool Bar and Portico are getting a face lift with new chairs and tables.

Victor and Omar give their best Vanna White impression as they show off the couple’s tables for the bar area.

We are remodeling the Buckboard Café kitchen, which will allow us to expand our guest services, as well enhance additional serving staff specialists along with the new Point of Sales ordering system, to make your experience more efficient and relaxing for you. You may want to join us for one or all of our meal specials like Julia’s Famous Fish Fry, along with Taco Tuesday or join in for the Meatloaf, Steaks, Liver or Onions and other new additions to our menu and special dinners.

Our Café hours will be expanded, our food options will be increased and you will be able to order from your table inside or out or even from the Bar.

We look forward to having all of our returning guests and new guests visit our resorts, and we are confident you will enjoy all of the resort enhancements. Call to book your reservations today and bring your family and friends to enjoy all the luxury of resort living. We offer bonuses and incentives to all who refer your family and friends, as well as new guests to visit any of our Westwind Enterprise Resorts or Community Mobile Home Parks establishments.

Westwind Enterprises strives to provide all of our guests with the most up to date modern amenities, to contribute to the everyday comfort of a resort living lifestyle.

We look forward to meeting you for another successful season at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort.

 We are looking for volunteers for the upcoming season that want to share their crafting skills, or provide instruction to those who want to learn something. We know our park is filled each year with so much untapped skill and talent or just the love of the game. Please call or email and let us know what you love to do. 760-554-7049 or

Don’t forget the fishing!

 Dove Hunting season started the first of September and we shared our beautiful RV Park with several hunters which included lots of Dads and sons like the ones you see here. They found time to add fishing to their agenda and had caught a couple bass and several bluegills. Of course, they put them back for you to catch when you come, as our fishing ponds are strictly for catch and release.


The Pool Bar area is under construction with some major patio improvements for enjoyment. We are upgrading the electricity in the Bar area, so we can expand on our menu options. We are upgrading the roof.  We are excited about improving the lounging area with another new large fire pit, perfect for a cozy and warm evening ambiance.

Concrete will be poured and the footings for the Arbor are ready for construction. The Arbor, like the Portico and bar, will be a comfortable, cozy area to gather around with gas heaters, lighting and windscreens for perfect social enjoyment.

We really appreciate the work our guys do, especially during these HOT summer months!  We recently improved our putting green landscape area with beautiful “white sugar sand” which looks absolutely stunning with the luscious green grass.
