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.

Solid

Overall great course
Greens were quick for being punched recent. Solid fun layout but you do find yourself hitting some of the same clubs if you’re staying in the fairway. No major complaints. A little slow for a Tuesday afternoon though.

Longest 4 hour round ever

I have played Rocky River more times than I can count. Today, was probably the worst. My first issue is there was not heads up about the greens being aerated. Next, I was sent out with another single behind foursomes and threesomes. There were about five tee boxes closed so we were playing from the tips. As a golfer pace is everything and we waited from the tee box to the green on every hole.

A little hidden gem

This is a well maintained and laid out course. A bit tight, so if you tend to play outside the fairway it's not very forgiving. A bit on the pricy side but you are certainly getting what you pay for.

Fun day of golf.

Course was in good shape but greens were aerated. The only downside is that people play the wrong tees and still think its ok to take more than 4 1/2 hrs to play.

The greens had just been aereated 4 days ago.

My only complaint would be that I did not know they had just aereated the greens 4 days ago, so putting in greens with sand was bumpy & slower than I am used to playing. It was have been nice to have a warning posted on the website that greens had just been aerated. I appreciate the discounted price to play a quality golf course, but if I had known in advance, I probably would have opted for a different golf course.

Wonderful Community Golf near Charlotte, NC

Terrific course near Charlotte, NC - right off the interstate by the race track. Nice to play without houses on the course! Lovely wooded holes - enough challenges to keep it interesting! The staff is fantastic - help with setting up and taking off golf bags, cleaning clubs, etc. The grill features a full bar with limited menu. Really enjoyed playing it.

Great Place

Great greens, great staff, great fairways. Tough place to score on some of the greens if you are not careful. A few holes definitely for shot makers. Awesome experience.
