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.

Very good

Had a great time here. Decently priced for the value and some amazing, natural views. Played in a two-some on a weekday morning and it was not crowded at all. We were able to play through all 18 without having anyone in front of us, so we finished within 4 hours. Course condition was good overall, a little soggy from all the rain, but fairways and greens were good. Greens ran pretty slow but were still decent enough and ran fairly pure. Some challenging holes and I enjoyed the layout. It required a lot of precision shots off the tee vs bombing the driver every hole. Would definitely recommend. We had a great time.

Decent course, not a fan of the layout

Course was in great shape. Didn’t particular like the layout. Not being able to hit the driver is always a bummer. You have to be able to place your ball pretty well on some holes. Never understood placing pins on the front of greens that are up on hills and have water to hit over...Round was less than 4 hours on a Sunday so that was amazing!

Greens and fairways in good shape. Interesting layout. Lots of non driveable par 4s making you think around the Course. Had a tournament today that was not efficient. Started on back 9 then went to 7,8,9 and then had about 45 minute wait on first tee. Staff is friendly.

A nice return

My first time in several years. New owners have made positive changes. Course has a nice mountain setting with clear water running thru and clean air. Lots of short shots off the tee, so thinking your way. Greens rolling very good. Putts seemed very simple. Call it a fun course. Only down side was slow groups on the back, and who ever picked my ball retriever didn't return it. Can't believe someone would just decide to take it home with them!

Great place

Tough course. Don't expect to use your driver to much. #8 is a TV hole! It's beautiful!
Will be back for more!

Nice golf course, in great shape.

The Rock is.a great little course. It was fairly busy for a Thursday morning but the pace not not too slow. The greens were a little slower than I prefer but were in great condition.

Back to the Rock

Since I last played this course it has been taken over by a different management group and all the changes they have made are good. The course and facilities were in great shape and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work

I enjoyed the course. Waterfall on #8 is beautiful. Everyone is very friendly. Par 5’s are getable. Don’t need a Driver off several tees. Need to place your ball and think your way around. Even though several holes are not that long - be aware of where the creek roams around the course. I will be back for sure.
