Much like my review earlier this year, the conditions at Rocky River were pretty much perfect. The Bermuda grass greens are nearly flawless, rolling quick and true with no issues anywhere. Tees, fairways and rough (which is penalizing thick stuff) were all in good shape. The bunkers are fine if you play them as lift, smooth and place. The holes still have the foam inserts which don’t affect the ball going in the cup. On this hot summer afternoon, they had a ranger making the rounds with free ice cold water bottles. I saw him at least 3 times on each side. He was Johnny-on-the-spot with the water! The carts have GPS and the pin positions were dialed in accurate — something not all GPS systems do well. Only change since March I noticed is that they’ve removed the wooden stairs beside the 18th green and sodded with grass. You can’t even tell the stairs ever existed and this is a good change. The stairs were not necessary and even though they weren’t really in play, it’s good to have a nice big bailout spot now that’s all grass. Rocky River has had a great year as far as conditions go and it is now a top 5 course here in the Charlotte area. Go play it!
