Sinnissippi Park Golf Club
Opened in 1912, Sinnissippi Park Golf Club is the Park District's oldest course and at 3,230 yards, it's also the shortest. In the century that it has occupied Rockford's east side, it has served as a great learning golf course for thousands of beginning golfers. This nine-hole course is conveniently located in the center of Sinnissippi Park, overlooking the Rock River. Towering mature trees pleasantly shade most of the golf course. At first glance the lack of water, sand, and length makes the course appear seemingly easy, but it would be a mistake to underestimate this layout. There are some surprisingly tough holes that can maddeningly turn pars into bogies and bogies into doubles. Most of the trouble is to the left, so hookers need to be extra cautious.

Nice place for beginners
No water, no sand traps. All grass however greens run so fast very hilly and lots of traffic.
It’s a small course. To much money for 9 holes and a cart
Nice 9 hole course
Easy layout....sometimes.....easy to go in the street...peoples yards.....or the cemetary.....greens are deceptively easy.......good luck!
Come on out
Looking for a fun time? Sinnissippi is where it is at!!

Short but fast
9 holes. All grass course, no water or sand traps. Easy play for a beginner.
Great course. Glad they went back to the old layout.
Great condition course!
My expectations, for park district courses, aren’t ever too high. This course was in great condition. The night before had been really heavy rain, and the course was even mostly dry. Glad to see our city is taking such good care of its golf courses. I brought my kids, who are 9 & 11, and I will certainly be bringing them back.
A great old time course
Hills, trees, ample fairways, tough rough all make for a great round of golf.
Condition of course.
The condition of the course is very rough.
I realize it's early in the year, however, I see no work going on to make it better. I feel it's to late to.
Golf Now needs to fix the hole locations. Hole 4 is now hole 1 and the old 1,2,&3 holes are now holes 7,8&9.
