Rating 72.9
Type Semi-Private
Rock Creek Golf Club was established in 1993. The club is located in Fairhope, Alabama on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. This 18-hole 7,000-yard championship course is dramatically designed to create a challenge for both the amateur and the professional. The topography and foliage of the land, along with the elevation changes and incorporation of wetlands, create many natural hazards while adding to the visual effect of this magnificent course. Rock Creek is truly one of the top courses located along the Gulf Coast. Designed by Earl Stone with every golfer in mind, the unique characteristics separate this course from others. Rock Creek is a must play when you are on the Gulf Coast. DIRECTIONS: From I-10: take Exit 35 East (Fairhope / Spanish Fort), go east on Hwy 98 for 6.5 miles to the entrance on left, follow road down the hill and at stop sign take a left, clubhouse is ahead on the right.

Resort type golf

Really wide fairways, huge greens and sneaky hazards are standard for this course. It’s a tough course if you are a first timer. No yardage books or even a basic layout is provided. Bring your Fancy watch. Played in the afternoon as a twosome. We finished in a little over 3 hours. They don’t provide ice and water with the cart so flag down the beverage cart ASAP. It’s really hot down here.

Rock Creek, Fairhope Alabama

We had a great time playing the course for the first time. We had a couple challenges with directions to a couple holes but figured it Ok. Greens, fairways and traps in good condition. Around the greens a few tufts of grasses you needed to chip over but all good. Apple Salad was great for lunch. I’d love to come back but was visiting from the left coast. Thank you Golf Now! & the staff of RockCreek GolfCourse, Fairhope Alabama.

Rock Creek Rocks!

I hadn't played for almost 18 months so I knew I would be challenged not only by the course, but by lack of recent playing time. The course is in superb condition and greens are fast. There were areas where the grass was sparse, but you're not supposed to be in those areas in the first place. Fairways are not super tight but a stray shot is often a lost ball. My playing partner summed up the experience perfectly: "That was the funnest round of lousy golf I've ever played."

Course conditions were ok, except for a number of tee boxs. They lacked some grass in places, especially the red tees.

Nice track

This is a good course for both advanced and intermediate golfers. Conditions were great after a tough winter. Pace was a little slow but I suppose after such a cold winter everyone was itching to play!

Great course

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.

Love this course

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.
