Slooow greens

I've played Rose City for 40 years so I know it. If the city parks dept and the greens crew could just do a little more. Like roll, top dress, and cut the greens, it would enhance the playability of the course. Instead every foot print, uncut greens that you have to pound the ball to hole, takes all fun out of play. Please before the rainy season makes this wonderful course unplayable.

Perfect deal for Oct golf

Got a great deal on 9 holes for less than $20, the greens were under repair so putting was tough with all the sand, but the rest of the course was in beautiful shape. Really liked how the trees framed each hole but weren't so dense that you couldn't get out if you're off the fairway.

Terrible greens!

The greens were terrible on 10/6/22. I've played on a lot of newly aerated greens and these were by far, the worst of the worst. There was excessive sand in some areas while 1/2" holes were left unfilled in others. While the city courses are among the highest priced courses, they also seem to have the worst maintenance in my opinion. During the aeration period, less than ideal green conditions are to be expected, but these were way beyond that. Having said that, I do like the course and I would recommend it at any other time.

Course conditions

The course had just been aerated and was wet from morning precipitation. As a result, sand and dirt clung to the ball and affected the speed and roll of the ball.

Really Poor condition

Poor condition and very slow greens. Muni course so expectations are low but the tee sheet is full with $50 rounds. I know they are making way more money than they did 3 years ago yet the course is in much worse condition. Bummer.

Fun fun fun

Rose city is lots of fun and has some challenging holes from the tips . Keep the ball in the fairway avoiding the trees . Spend some time on the practice green and learn the speed .
Overall good bang for the buck 👍

I dislike Marshall’s but this course needs them

It’s a city course. Players need to learn to play ready golf. Course backs up really bad. Marshall’s should be out making players play at a decent pace.

Fun Layout

The course is in nice shape and the layout can challenge you if you don't find the fairway off of the tee box.

Loved it!

Great course and a fun setup for all types of golfers, reminded me of the Old Olmsted Park courses I grew up playing in Buffalo. Friendly staff and a great burger! Can’t wait to play again!
