Really enjoyed our round at Rock Creek. Staff was friendly throughout. Interesting layout with elevation changes and variety in holes. Greens and bunkers in great shape. Fairways were a bit dry although that is likely seasonal. Would definitely play again.

This course can be challenging yet is also female friendly. It all depends on the tee box. The course is kept in prime condition and is a joy to play. We are privileged enough to play all year but suggest if you are in the area it is a worthwhile stop.

Played here on a Saturday morning before college football. They had a "Pregame Shotgun" intended to get everyone done in time to see the games on TV. For $59 each we got a hot breakfast burrito, the round of golf, cart, range, and a steak lunch. On top of that, because it was cart path only due to overseeding, we got a free round of golf in the future just for behaving ourselves and staying off the grass! Staff was friendly. Facilities very good. Enjoyed the golf course. Lots of elevations changes and the greens were tough. We had fun and would return - the value received for the price paid was awesome!

We just happen on this course while in Mobile. It's semi private but since it was Ladies Month, I got a discount on my round. It was in great shape and very interesting. Would play it again in a heart beat if we are back in Mobile.

I've played just about everywhere from Pass Christian to Pensacola, and I can't remember seeing a Gulf Coast course with elevation changes so dramatic as the ones at Rock Creek. It was really remarkable. It felt more like Birmingham than the beach.

I've always been a big fan of Earl Stone. He designs playable courses that won't overwhelm you. He found a nice balance of tough and fair holes at Rock Creek, one of the best courses near the Alabama Gulf Coast. Some of Rock Creek's toughest challenges come early in the round. After the opening par-5, the second hole drops from an elevated tee and doglegs hard right. The green, tucked behind a wetland, sits in the shadow of a wooded bulkhead. It's a beauty.
