Played this course on the 4th of July. The pace gets a little slow in and around the par 3's. Most of the staff is super nice. One guys was pretty condescending when my partner showed up late for his tee time.

Tee boxes are lush for the most part, fairways are in decent shape as well. Most of the greens are easy and flat. I do remember a couple of two tiered greens which were the hardest ones on the course. Pretty good value for the money.

Great layout, well maintained, and wonderful veiws. The wind -- which was blowing upwards of 15 - 20 MPH the day I played -- really changed the dynamic of the course. Very large and difficult greens means you need to have the flat stick working to score well. Hole 10 and 11 incorporate views right along the Cheasapeake Bay, and the exposed nature can really make them difficult based on the wind. Overall, a great course to play.

Big fan of Rocky Point. 11th hole is among as beautiful a scene as you'll find at a public course. Course is fairly difficult for the average hacker; experienced golfers won't have too much of a problem as the fairways are fairly wide. The 14th is probably the most challenging hole with a wide creek threatening your second (or third) shot, and after clearing that, a steep uphill approach to the green. Highly recommend playing if you're in the area.

This course has improved 200% with wonderful views of the Chesapeake Bay on Holes, 10 & 11. It has always been one of my favorite courses. Many invitations to "let out the shaft" and "go for it" with mild to moderate risk. I recommend this course to anyone/everyone who wants to just enjoy a nice "open air" type golf course. The ladies will love this course !!!

Great course. My favorite hole is the 16th, an easy eagle hole. Nice course, challenging par 5's except for 16, but overall good course. Will play there again.
