Just not ready for the season

Rockway is a short fun old course but it has seen better days. The shop had young girls working who didn't know what they were doing. Pro shop empty of merchandise and 3 holes closed that we weren't informed off.
Really disappointed.

Kitchener Rockway

Great value for your money. Fun and challenging municipal golf course good condition. Keep the ball in the fairway or you will struggle to make a par. Lots of trees and a great layout with a history of great golf players such as Moe Norman, Gary Cowan, Gerry Kessilring, Gus Maue and Gary Doernhoffer.

Tough to walk

I bought a green fee only walking rate. Not a good idea. Not terrible, but a cart would help.

Tough walking course

Not sure why another guy reviewed this course is okay to walk. Holy cow, it was terrible. Warm day notwithstanding. Get yourself a cart. Tough uphill fairways.

Ushered off

only got 16 holes at Rockway before getting ushered off. Plenty of light to finish,, yet we got escorted off. We played through the group ahead so, we were not slow. Don't sell tee times if its not even possible to play 18 FFS
