Course was in good condition except for the sand bunkers. Not enough sand makes for a difficult out.

Rob Roy course

Greens were very good, looks like golfers fits their divot , but the bunkers were terrible maybe because of cord-vid 19.also a lot of broken carts.

Well maintained, narrow fairways

John at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The groundskeepers were attending to leaves on the course and were cooperative when we were playing on the holes that they were working on.
There are four holes that are near water hazards. If I had not been striking the ball so well, it would have been moderate course difficulty.
Fairways were honest and manicured. Hitting into the rough was not the end of the world, as the grass was trimmed well and the turf was in good shape.
We used pull carts which had velcro that needed replacement. But the carts worked fine and the velcro held.
You can tell when the course is maintained with pride. This course is. The greens are very well manicured, although the fairways are relatively narrow in placed.
With the perfect weather, the course was crowded. The pace of play was not horrible, but it was slow. We were following a foursome with two on cart and two on foot. There was a twosome behind us on a cart. We finished in 2.5 hours. With no one in front of us, we would normally be through in just over two hours.
We had a great time playing Rob Roy. Thanks to the staff!

The course needs upkeep. New sand is desperately needed in the traps. The overall pleasantness of the course has declined because they refuse to put even a little money into it.

Solid 9 Hole Suburban Course

If you want to get a quick 9 hole round that resembles a traditional 18 hole course over a typical par-3 or a short 9-hole course, this is the place to go. It offers a couple long holes, and the traditional par-3 and par-4 holes you will find on many 18 hole courses. Furthermore, the conditions were good with the fairways, rough, and greens in good condition.

The only complaints I can offer is there is no net off several holes that hug a road. This isn't about losing a ball, but more about safety since a slice will easily go onto the road or the neighborhood. I feel like for safety reasons their should be a net off several holes. The other issue is there is a bit of walk between a couple holes, and it's not labeled well how you cross the street, hug around a corner, then continue your round. Not a huge issue, but for a first-timer like myself it could be confusing for some. Otherwise, a very solid 9-hole course. I recommend it if you just want a quick 2 hour round.
