This semi-private club is located within earshot of Charlotte Motor Speedway and you'll know it if you play during a race week. Designed by Dan Maples and managed by the Embassy Suites-Concord, the course offers stay and play packages similar to a resort course. The clubhouse offers nice views of the 18th green from the Stonehouse Grille. With several risk-reward holes and the amenities, this course is a great place for an outing. The greens were redone in bermuda grass during the summer of 2012.
Good selection of affordable, annual golf plans, including discounts for Concord residents.
I now play here regularly a few times a year. It's typically kept in very nice shape and the staff and amenities are top-notch. It's also fun to play when something's going on at the race track -- the Zmax Dragway stands now rise over the clubhouse and driving range. The course has many unique and memorable holes, including the 555yd par 5 3rd hole with a huge boulder smack in the middle of the fairway -- "Gragg's Rock" is named after Floyd Gragg who directed the opening of the course in 1997. With the conversion to bermuda grass on the greens in 2012, the course remains in great playing shape almost all year round. I enjoy the challenge and scoring opportunities at Rocky River -- I nearly aced the 10th hole (missed by inches) in July 2014.
I always loved playing Rocky River, and I still do. This was my first time back in years, and somehow it seemed different. It's amazing how time changes your perception, because it's still the same as it was then. The greens are in good shape, and they roll true. They are firm, so ball marks are going to be hard to find but I repaired what I could. In fact, I was able to average two putts, and even chipped one in on a penalty hole to save single bogey instead of much worse. Shaved a bunch of strokes off today, but the penalties killed me. I like the GPS in the carts. :) Top notch course as usual.Read The Review
Great course and great atmosphere. Greens were punched in early July so they're in great condition now as is the rest of the course. Carts have GPS, score tracking, built in Bluetooth speakers, and coolers provided. Everyone from the pro shop to grill (had an excellent breakfast sandwich too) were super friendly...very much enjoyed my round and will certainly be back.Read The Review
This is one of the top three courses in the Charlotte area in my opinion and again it did not disappoint. Greens were smooth, FIRM and fast. Fairways, bunkers and tee boxes were in good-great shape. I love the layout and love walking this course. Just an FYI, we had a 4:10 tee time and when I booked it online the twilight rate for a cart was $55 and the rate to walk was $60. I called the pro shop to confirm the walking rate was higher than the cart rate, I was told yes it was and I could pay the cart rate and walk instead.Read The Review
Always one of my favorite tracks. The greens were perfect and rolling fast. The only downside to the course is they seem to struggle with their tee boxes.Read The Review
Greens were in great shape and very fast, fairways still coming in with a few patchy spots and some GUR. Good value to walk on a weekday afternoon, and one of the best courses in the area currently.Read The Review
