This is a good course for high handicappers (like me) or for a faster round. A few of the holes on the back nine are challenging. Good a great rate on a hot deal from golfnow.

Really enjoy playing this course. Friendly staff and they always have carts coming around to make sure you have cold water.

The goose droppings on some of the tee boxes and greens are somewhat of a bummer.

We really had a good time at Rolling Hills. Got a chance to play about 14 holes. Only disappointment was that one of our carts died and it took about 25 minutes for them to replace it. Otherwise, it was a nice day to play and conditions were pretty good. I was impressed with the greens for February play. Rough was manageable and fairways were pretty good. The two-some in front of us was very, very slow. But I don't blame the course for that.

You can score on this layout but it will get you if you let up any. A good variety of holes and different shot opportunities for all levels of play. My tip: #17 a par three plays longer than any of the yardages The course was in great condition for winter. Kudos to the G.C. Superintendent. Have fun!
