GREAT condition

Best greens in Charlotte at this time of year (since they're bermuda and most other public courses are bent grass). These greens were even better than most of the private courses I recently played. The greens and a great layout (with NO HOUSES) makes this one an enjoyable place to play..highly recommended.

Fantastic Fall Course

Rocky River doesn’t fail to impress. Despite heavy rain 2 days prior. Purse was in great shape and green were quick and rolled beautifully. This is one of my favorite public courses outside of Conxord,NC

Solid Option in the Charlotte area!

Greens were in great shape, especially for fall. Course is not overly challenging or long, but we only played the green tees. The tips may have been a bit more of a challenge. Hit lots of 3W off the tee. Most fairways were generous, and the bunkers were in good shape. Only complaint would be some chewed up par 3 tee boxes that had weeks of unfilled divots. Oh, and they didn't allow anything above an iron on the range. Not a deal breaker, but hat should be on their website.

Enjoyable round

Course was very nice but you have to be willing to put up with the noise from the race track (NASCAR and dirt track). Make sure there are no major races on the day you play.

Excellent Condition!

From Tee to Green the course is in excellent shape. I enjoy the course layout. The cross winds can be a challenge and most of the pin placements have your ball going up or down and left or right. Fun course to play.

Fantastic

I love playing here. The greens are rolling great and extremely fast (I play 5 times a week and these are by far the fastest in the Charlotte Metro).. They are finally getting their tee boxes all back open as well. Golfers should put this course on their play list.

Beautiful course

The greens were the best I’ve played in the area. They were fast and smooth which made chipping from around the greens challenging. The course has a great layout and conditions. I will definitely play it again.
