Rolling Hills was recently renovated. They did a great job with the fairways and the greens, all now in excellent condition. The front 9 is now the back 9. My guess is they switched to improve the speed of play. The course was empty so I couldn't evaluate speed of play.

On arriving, we were sent to the 1st tee which said 10 on the sign. Played what we thought was the back nine (in error) first as the signs said 10 - 18 but discovered coming back to hole one - it also said hole 10 and was indeed the back nine even though the rest of the holes was labelled holes 2 through 9! Confusing or what! - still not sure the order we played it in. Holes 1 to nine (but labelled 10-18) were in rough shape in my opinion. The back nine much better. If the course was in good shape it would be worth the money, but lots of work needed in the fairways on the front nine.

Sugggest that the yardage & score cards be updated to reflect the proper holes. Confusing to say the least.

Otherwise liked the course very much.

I played early on a Saturday morning. The greens were very receptive and rolled true. The fairways were nice on the par 4's. Pace of play was extremely quick for an executive course. We were the 4th group off and the only waiting we ever had was on the driveable par 4's.

The hole numbers are very confusing as the sequence of play has been changed and none of the signs show the hole being played.

Aptly named, every hole had unique features.

I really enjoyed the layout. Finished 18 holes in about 3 hours. teed off on time. groups stayed on pace.

Course was in superb shape. Greens were challenging but fair.

For a short course it was very fun.

I will be back soon.
