Consistently is the best public course in the Charlotte area. The layout is fun to play, and is almost always in great condition. Staff is really friendly, and compared to lots of courses in town that have really let the condition go downhill, Rocky River has done a good job keeping it nice. No houses around the course is really peaceful, and the wetlands on the back 9 are my favorite feature. Overall, the best public offering in town.

One of my favorite courses in the Charlotte area. I haven't played it since last year and yes, last year's condtions were rough due to the extreme heat. RRGC is playable for high handicappers and challenging for low handicappers. The architect, Dan Maples, also designed the popular Witch GC in Myrtle Beach; courses have similar characteristics. Also, considering its proximity to the racing industry, the drag strip off the 2nd tee and the sound of cars on the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway are charming.

Playing Rocky River was a very fun experience for me. Though not appearing to be in the best condition, Rocky River was surprisingly playable. The Pace of play was great. And the greens, though a little on the slow side rolled very true.
Play here if you want a quick, fun round.

For a public course, this place is kept in excellent condition. I am also impressed by the nature beauty of the course. I have seen cranes, deer, and a beaver along the course in the few times I've played there. Unfortunately the city allowed a huge drag race complex to be built right next to the clubhouse, which is a huge eyesore and detracts from the natural setting. Also the city or county put through a new sewer line that left some big scars on the landscape in the wetlands areas - a private entity would never be allow to get away with that. Anyway, I find this course to be quite challenging and have always enjoyed playing there - so 4 stars!

Played there late last summer '08. I hadn't played there in probably 8 years and remember it being very nice. But when I played last summer the greens were just horrible. Terrible.

Bumpy, burnt spots, divot marks all over the place, you name it. Aweful. It was almost inpossible to get a good roll. I play a lot of other local courses and have never seen greens in worse condition than I did that day.

For what I paid for me and a client to go out, I will think long and hard about going back.

The best municipal course that I've ever played. Course is very well-maintained, even though the greens had patches where the crew had repaired bad spots on them (that's forgivable, though, considering the super-dry and hot summer that they were put through). The par-3s are some of the toughest around, and the par-5s are long. This course penalizes bad shots, as EVERY shot that goes outside of the fairway mounding bounces out of play, either into woods, or high grass. Course is very accessible to I-85. Nice staff and clubhouse, even though $2.50 is too much for a bottle of water. Scenery was excellent, with natural wetlands on one side of the course, and great views and sounds of Lowe's Motor Speedway on the other side. Another great design feature is the huge boulder that sits in the middle of the fairway on the 3rd hole. In all, this is a great course to play.

very nice course, well kempt

there is no recovery from very bad shots but the landing areas on most holes are big enough. wetlands surround almost every hole which is why there is no chance for recovery from a very bad shot. fairways are very nice and the greens are also very nice. without a doubt it is one of the better courses in north charlotte. the only downside is that the people at rocky river golf course like their golf course too, you may need a 2nd mortgage.
