HELP !

Never played here so decided to give it a shot last year. I was impressed, but this year it is a different course. Fairways are a bit ragged and tee boxes have seen better days, The greens have multiple patches sometime interfering with putting. Lots of ground under repair. If you just a need practice round its okay but would not spend more than $15-$20. Club house and facilities dated and your better off just bringing a snack. Mens Room, No comment!
Competition in area makes it hard for me to return to "sub par" facility.

GPS

The golf course changed the holes around. #10 hole is now #1 hole but the GPS watch and cellphone didn’t change. How do you get the GPS system updated?

Enjoyable course

Really enjoyed the course and the layout. Wait time was bad as the course was packed. First two holes took us 45 minutes, but then the ranger moved people around and it began to speed it. All in all, a very enjoyable course.

Good Value

Course was in good shape. Green and fairways and greens were in good condition overall. The location is a bit out of the way in a somewhat depressed area but if u just want good value golf-go.

First Time Playing

So the 10th hole is The first hole

They never changed the signs nor did they tell us this when we checked in or got our cart. However, the Rangers were extremely kind and considerate in assisting us getting back on track.

Relatively new to playing golf independently. This did not help my experience.

One word!...WOW!!!!

We started off thinking it is just another basic regular course, were we ever wrong. The greens were not in the greatest condition, although the layout and difficulties behind each and every hole was very well thought out and made the course very challenging and enjoyable to play. We have been golfing at a different course daily, and this by far is our favorite in the local area. We will be back!

Golf at Rouge

We played at 10:48am in the morning. Really no people in front of us due to it being a week day. Course is in descent shape considering it was mostly under water due to rains a month or so earlier.

Some of the greens have a disease on them. The cart paths could use some repairs and are extremely bumpy. One path had water over it and there was a big hole in it causing water to fly and the riders up to the ceiling.

Overall the course is challenging and narrow on several holes.

Fun Layout

I always enjoy the 5 par 5 and 5 par 3 layout. Pace of play really varies on the time and day. Not much of a clubhouse but they're friendly enough. Greens on the slow side. Holes 1 and 11 are definitely the biggest challenges

Lost some appeal

Course changed hands in the off season. It’s obvious the new management hasn’t kept up with the times. The conditions were wet as expected with the weather but the course was in disrepair. The greens were great but tee boxes and fairways were not mowed. No monuments in place as in precious years. Too bad I’ve always loved to play this course in the past.

great day

The first think that hit you at Rouge Park is how great the people are at the course!!!! The course has had a lot of rain and it was hard them to keep up the the cutting. We played again on the 22nd and you could see the improvement and hard work by the staff. Looking forward to my next round there.
