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.

Very enjoyable

I have played this course twice and each time had a great time. You will need a variety of shots but the course layout is very generous. Greens, a bit hard, but roll relatively true. Will certainly play again.

One of the best public courses around Charlotte

Superb conditions, especially considering the Charlotte summers. Greens had a trace of sand but all were smooth and putted true. Nice layout.

Good Place

Good track, the GPS limits on the carts are a bit excessive. Also, was assured I could make a reservation and then pay the senior rate, but the system charged me immediately and no senior rate allowed.

My Favorite Course!!!

This course is always in great shape. Love the layout and challenge. The staff is great! They are very professional and helpful. Nice ending last time I played as a Doe and her two fawns walked across the 18th tee box.

First Time At Rocky Creek

My son and I really enjoyed the course., even though we had a tough time reading the greens. Pace of play was excellent as the course was not at all crowded. Great conditioning. Back nine much more difficult for us than the front nine.

First experience

This was my first time playing Rocky River golf club. I went there based upon positive reviews. Normally I wouldn’t travel that far to go to play golf because there are many courses in my area. However, I travel 35 miles because of the positive reviews. That being said, the course is in good condition and very fair and very playable for the average golfer. The only drawback was at the pace of play was very slow and there were no Rangers to keep pace of play moving.I was surprised how busy it was for a Monday on this golf course. I thought it would be a lot less crowded and the pace of play would’ve been quicker. I would like to go back but I’m hesitant due to pace of play and the distance.

Premium price??

I have always enjoyed this course. For the price currently being charged you would think the greens wouldn’t still be bumpy from the previous aeration. Overall the course is still super nice but the price would tell me that the greens are in pristine condition.
