Distances on Score card are wrong
The course was good. however a few holes had their distances marked wrong. it was like 400 yards for hole # 18 however the score card said 350 from white TEE. Also on one of the par 5 hole said 477 yards are so but it was only around 400 yards.
but dont get me wrong. I loved the course. its layout and standard are too good for a municipal maintained course. And my full appreciation for the staff.
Always enjoy this course with the tee times being more spread out for covid it’s much faster and more enjoyable
Challenging mid-length course
Challenging mid-length course with some twists & turns. Layout of holes is great for match play. Hole # 12 is fun challenge.
There was a range of scores in our foursome on every hole.
Good match play course
Challenging mid-length course. Plenty of little twists & turns. Good par 3s.
Hole #12 is a wonderful match play hole.
Our foursome had a range of scores on every hole.
Unfortunatley due to covid 19 the clubhouse was closed still. At most cpurses in Guelph they are open. Was hoping to enjoy more of the off course amenities especially the Moe Norman room. Still a good cpurse though.
Great Value for a round. Very forgiving
Paid $25 for walking twilight rate. Didnt realize they didnt allow carts for out after 3. Still a fair price in my opinion. This course isnt exceptionnally long, but when walking it can be a good workout as there is some distance between some of the holes. The rough was fairly burnt but thats not unexpected as theres been very little rain lately. All in all for the price it was a good value round

I am a member at Rocway, and I love this course. The value is incredible for both members and non members (25 bucks after 4pm. The course is pretty well maintained, the greens are in great condition. Proshop staff are super friendly, and it has some decent amenities are large practice putting green that is closed and chipping green that is closed (covid).
The one problem that Rocway has always had an issue with is pace of play. It gets very slow at times and the marshalls either don't want conflict or just are oblivious to it and do not encourage some groups to play a scramble. Which would help everyone.
Overall Rocway is a gem in the city and hopefully you will give it a whirl!
Good little course for the price
Rockway is a short track. Not super long. Not super difficult. Has its ups and downs. It's a city course but it's well maintained especially given the break from golf through COVID19. However, there's little in the way of ammeneties. No range. Small putting green. Food is meh. Price to play is average. Pace of play is average to slow if you get caught behind the wrong people.
All in all for 30 40 bucks it's hard to pass up. Fun to play once in a while. Worth it to go at least once for sure. Just don't expect the best thing you've ever seen. It's worth the price of entry though.
Rockway being called a "golf course" demeans the term. Course layout? Not good at all: there's a 10-15 minute commute across an intersection between 2 of the holes, which was poorly marked and not brought to our attention ahead of time. Course conditions? Even worse: the rough was severely unkept, and every green was covered with debris, making each putt a guess. The other golfers? The worst of the three: some players were wearing t-shirts, a group ahead of us was playing as an 8-some, and some players were seen driving their golf carts on top of the green. If you think you've got this course as a value pick, do yourself a favour and just move along.
I Understand Covid-19 rules, I booked for 2 golfers, got to the course and they added 2 singles to our group. I mentioned that during Covid-19 they should not be pairing total strangers together, pro shop manager rudely said they had too, due to spacing out the tee times further apart, so to make their money they have no choice but to put 4 golfers on every hole wether you know each other or not. Very rude manager even the Marshall was surprised that we did not know each other. Typical management always about the money not the safety of people.
Very good condition, several Tees are chewed up and unlevel. Beautiful autumn colors. Very slow group ahead of us today.
My favourite course
I played Rockway over 20 times last season. It is, by far my favourite course to play. I have only played there once this season. Between 2018 & 2019, the price for a round increased by $20, making it one of the more expensive courses in the area. I have been playing at Conestoga this year for $45.20 including cart on Sunday mornings. Rockway is around $80. By booking later in the day and using Golf Now, I was able to book this one round for a price I could afford.
