First Time Playing

Challenging/Picturesque

Sweet little course in the foothills of northwest South Carolina’s Appalachian chain. Coming from FL this was a refreshing change from “flat” golf. Course condition overall was excellent. Changes in elevation, positioning of water, and numerous doglegs means you need to think about your next shot. Mid morning tee time resulted in unhurried pace of play. When was last time you played a course with real waterfalls? Spectacular!! Friendly staff too.

Amazing course

This was my first time playing here, and man it was amazing. Super friendly staff, tee box's looked great, fairways where in great shape and the greens looked amazing. And this was from just playing the front 9, back 9 was closed for upkeep. But that's okay I will definitely be back to play a full 18.

Good course

The course is in very good shape. Play was very slow because a group of 5 would not let anyone play thru. Made for a long slow round. It is a shot makers course and the layout is beautiful. I'll be back and hope to get a faster round in.

The Rock is a great value for the money.
Fairways and greens are in great shape.
The layout is challenging but fair.
The water features and running streams add to the charm.

Being Upfront

Being upfront with your clients is important. Imagine our surprise when we arrived from an hour away to find green aerofication and half of the course closed. That’s just not right.

Very Slow Play

Course was in good shape, and the layout is great. The greens were consistent and putted well. We waited for every shot excluding puts. We also waited nearly 30 minutes for a cart to show up before we could start our round. It may be helpful to have a ranger on weekends to help move the pace along.
