First Time Playing

Great time!!!

I had an hour drive to get here but it was worth it!!! Great lady in the pro shop got me fixed up and since we was early she told me the restaurant had a great cheese burger, she wasn’t kidding. One of the best I’ve had any where!!! The layout was good and the pace of play was perfect. The greens rolled nice and were in good shape. The fairways were coming in good from the overseed but were a little thin, no big deal. Great price and will definitely make the drive again!!!!

Rudest worker.

Some old man working in the pro shop made my gf pay a cart fee just to ride with me even though she wasn’t playing. He treated me terrible the entire time I was in there and was rude to my GF. He should never work around customers again. From now on I will be going to Blackstone golf course. This is the reason Rocky has fallen off and why they could no longer be private is because of grumpy old people like him. Terrible experience

Fun course, worth the drive

We always look forward to playing the course several times during our snowbird season and this season’s first play did not disappoint. The course offers more terrain variations than typical area courses. Challenging enough to be fun but not a hard course. Fairways generous, a few holes with water hazards, some blind holes require thoughtful course management.

Nice coarse

The coarse was in good shape considering the time of year that we played it. The grass was dormant when we were there so it was not real green. The fairways and greens were pretty green mainly just the rough was brown. The staff was very friendly. We had multiple members come up and talk to us while we were playing they were all very friendly asked how we were doing and how we liked their coarse. It was a very good experience we didn't run into anyone that was not welcoming. Very nice place.

Great Layout

Great 18 hole layout. Course is in a neighborhood, but it isn't crammed between houses. Plenty of room, and ample fairways. 6 tee boxes to choose your difficulty. One of the only courses in the area with some elevation change. This is an old school country club - there was no gps on the carts, no beverage carts on the course, and the grill is not set up to get you through quickly at the turn. Just be prepared for that and you should enjoy the course.
