The original 18-holes, The Bluff Nine and The Oak Nine opened for play in 1946. The course was designed by William P. Bell.

The River Course at the Del Rio Country Club plays to a par-36 and a maximum distance of 3,467 yards. River golf course opened in 1997. Architect Robert Muir Graves whose work includes Sea Ranch and Black Butte designed the River Nine which borders the Stanislaus River.
