Rocky Lakes Golf Course in Springfield is like playing two courses in one. The shorter front nine is wide-open, offering a gentle start before moving on to the more slightly more demanding, par-36 back nine. Mature trees and water hazards come into play on the back as well as the occasional bunker. It is not a difficult layout by any means, but there are a few challenges in store. Overall the golf course is very player friendly, making it best for beginners as well as junior golfers. Intermediate and more advanced players will be disappointed if they are looking for a course that will test their skills, but the affordable rates make Rocky Lakes Golf Course a good option for a quick game where you can get a little practice.

I am going to start this review with the fact I know the owner's son because he is married to my sister, but I will be honest.

The course layout of par 71 is average for an Ohio course with back and forth holes, with three really fun hole through the woods starting with the par 5 then a 3 and 4. The only real thing lacking on this course is elevation, but it happens here in Ohio. With that being said you can tell the placement of the lakes does make this course more of a challenge hence the name.

I have played here any time of year, and it have always been in wonderful condition, and I used to have to drive by it for work in the morning an seen the greens crew hustling to get it there. They work hard to have this place looking good.

Bogey's is a great bar which gets allot of the local air force and air guard service members to stop in and have a drink. I don't typically go to a bar to watch a football game, but I have watched Ohio state show their dominance over Alabama at this location. The food isn't world class, but it is what you would want from a good public course, and the drinks are always refreshing. They can host events, and offer indoor golf for said events like graduation parties and bachelor parties.(I have seen both done great)


Pace of Play: Excellent

Course Layout: Average

Course Conditions: Good

Staff Friendliness: Excellent

Value for the Money: Good

Off-Course Amenities: Good

Course Difficulty:  Moderate
