Beautiful Course...people playing it, not so much

Overall the course would be fit for any level player. It does play a little more narrower than most though. Beautiful Mountain View’s with creeks through the course. The 8th tee box borders a nice little waterfall. Pace of play however was atrocious. People played without regard that groups were backing up behind them. There was no course marshal to keep the pace moving along and numerous calls to the clubhouse went unanswered. So I guess people just did as they pleased. We actually completely skipped 2 holes just to get around a couple of foursomes or else we wouldn’t have finished 18 before running out of daylight...keep in mind we teed off at 1240. I would definitely play the course again, just with a way earlier start time to ensure we get to complete 18 holes.

Bad experience

I booked online through Golfnow to pay at the course. Had my reservation number, but the guy would not honor the online price I booked it under. I turned and was leaving when 4 more golfers came in with a booked game through Golfnow and the guy honored their rate. So I asked why honor their through the same app I booked mine and not honor
mine?

A must play for me

Outstanding course in my opinion. I really enjoyed the layout, the scenery and the lush fairways. Like all courses in October there are some rough patches but it is obvious they are working on them. The greens were in great condition and rolled very nicely.. Playing this course was an enjoyable experience.

Great course for price

This was my husband and I played this course. The price was very resonable compared to other courses. It is a very nice course, great greens, challenging but not difficult. We immediately made a tee time for another day during our vacation time. Must play if you are in the area. Also, restaurant opened on second play day, good food, service.

Good layout, needs some work.

I know new owners took over a couple of years ago and are working on the condition of the course. The greens are soft, but were recently aerated so putting was difficult. The fairways were not great and the rough looked like it wasn't cut until it was knee high so there was a lot of grass clippings everywhere. The course layout is fun and challenging, shot placement is very important. The area is beautiful. Hopefully they will get it in shape...if so, it will be a real good course to play.

Good place to go.

I’ve played many courses. So here’s the weekly/monthly update on this one.... aerated recently but roll pretty good. Chip-ons are laughable still. They’re not going to land and roll where you drop them.
Crowd was minimal. Fairways in good shape. Tee boxes also.
Once greens come in it’ll be very nice.
#4, #7 and #15 are the only still PITA!!
Shot 74 from the blacks, course is good place to keep your game on track.
Recommend for every level.

Sand

Guys - eventually you will listen. You have made great strides and I keep stressing sand . When I get a cart and the sand buckets are empty that’s a problem. . I have nothing to fix your course. The Par 3 holes are still tore up/ where are the sand boxes on the tees. Tommy if you are listening make sure the carts at Tbe Rock have sand. Course was great. I will be back to see.

Excellent way to spend 4th of July

Very neat course. Lots of doglegs and blind shots, but manageable for the most part. Will definitely have different club selections next time. Greens and teeboxes were in excellent shape, fairways left a bit to be desired. Hole 8 is worth the price of admission.

Still a good one!

It's been a few years since I had play The Rock, and if memory serves correct, it's improved. The staff was friendly. The course was in food shape. Even though I played single, the pace of play was a bit slow. But it's that way most anywhere. I enjoyed my round and will return soon.

Complete Turn Around

This course has done a complete 360. The fairways are filled in with good grass and the greens are equal to there partner course Legacy Pines. The grill was closed for a short time but the food is great here.

Only small recommendation is they need sand boxes on the Par 3’s. Let’s face it most people aren’t hitting a shot- making a divot and walking back to the cart for sand. If you have sand boxes it’s closer and probably will get used more. ( I emptied my sand holder twice during the round)

Good layout and greens

The layout Requires several placement shots off the tee but definitely doable. Greens were sanded but still rolled fairly fast and true. Pretty scenery. My first time but it would be even more enjoyable the next time. Staff was very friendly. I definitely will play this course again mostly because of the greens.
