Rocky River is in fantastic shape tee to green — the best of any public course I’ve played this year so far. Fairways in particular were nice and lush and providing lots of roll on tee shots. Greens were near perfect (with one exception noted below) and very quick. I still have trouble reading these Bermuda greens though and I didn’t make anything over 10 or 12 feet all day. Tees and sand bunkers were also good. We were able to take individual carts and the pace was brisk starting at 8:30. Not crowded at all. The hole cups had foam fillers which made it easy to retrieve our holed putts without disrupting anything. The snack bar was open and stocked. The only issue on the course was the repaired spot on #4 green. It looks like maybe they had some vandalism on that green a little while back and had to sod a 10 foot wide strip through the middle of the green. The hole was cut away from it and it didn’t affect my putt rolling across the strip from the other side of the green. So not a big issue just an anomaly. Overall, these were the best conditions I’ve played in recently (see my reviews for Warrior, Monroe, and Springfield — I’ve also played Skybrook and Olde Sycamore). This course is Top 5 Charlotte material.
