Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...
Hello fellow B-Man visitors. I am planning on playing several courses in the Charlotte area and one of them is River Rock Golf course. I am reluctant to now, because I have heard so many negative things about the greens. I would prefer true greens, that are well maintained, but I do understand occasional greens that have been burned, as long as there has been in effort to have them repaired.
I am bringing some clients with me, and I know you’re saying, there are better courses to play, but hold on, let me say that one of my clients played this course about 4 years ago, and he said when he was in the area again, he would want to visit it. Do you think we will be disappointed?
If I get good feed back, I will proceed with the planning, but if not, I will go by and check out the course myself to see. Anyways, I am hoping someone can save me a trip
I have not played Rocky River in years. Good course overall, but try to avoid playing on weekends. Normally on weekends they used to put the pins in impossible locations at the edges, and the greens are big. You could hit the center of the green and still have 50 feet for birdie. Don’t know if they still do this, but call ahead and ask sarcastically if they have the pins actually on the greens. Seriously though, it’s a solid course, but find out the pin positions before you go.
Played Rocky River last Saturday. I thought it was in really good shape T-boxes needed work but fairways were really nice and the greens were very puttable.Price was great for the weekend with the coupon offered on there website. I say go for it!
