Overall, good course

Overall, good experience on this course. I did see rangers out and about, though i felt like they were camping in certain holes. Bunkers need to be upgraded on sand. Greens are average. Need more water on fairways but overall layout is excellent especially from black tees. Bit of a challenge in my view. I would suggest playing black and enjoy the layout. Value wise I think this is a good course.

Hot weather
Used cart

Cart path only, and one nine closed because of rain day before. Would have helped if had known this before showing up. One golfer had knee problems. Course in good shape otherwise, and somewhat challenging. Certainly long enough. Pace of play could have been quicker, even with cart path only. Some world class putters (in their minds) took an inordinate amount of time on greens. Did not seem that they were pushed at all, even though a couple of holes were open ahead of them. Loof forward to getting back in cooler weather, and less soggy conditions.

Pleasantly surprised

I was pleasantly surprised by this course. Hot deal always helped but I have to say course condition overall was very well maintained. There were several rangers which I think helped the pace as well. Only downside was the green condition. It was in good condition, but it was very slow and uneven from hole to hole. With that being said, for a muni course, I enjoyed the layout very much, and I suggest trying back tee to add some challenge to the course. (+6800 yds)

Course is bad in many ways!!!

Poorly managed course, starter doesn’t know what he’s doing. The greens were in horrible shape, I used to play here a lot couple of years ago was my favorite track of county courses. Shame on this place cause layout is pretty good and they just let it go to crap. Players unfamiliar with course save your money & time....Play elsewhere !!!!!

needs care

Poor pace. Finished in 5 hours as a 3some waiting on most holes. The greens are in the worst shape i have ever seen them here. Many holes the greens were terrible hard to explain how they can allow this to happen and charge what they do. Spots on the green were completely devoid of grass like putting through a minefield

Conditions Improving

After many weeks of considerable rainfall Rockleigh is greened up and down to only one temporary green (8). For a municipal track this is pretty good. Challenging in spots. Fun to play for sure. Greens not great but not bad at all.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

I hate to be negative, but this course was by far in the worst shape of ANY course I have played on in the last 4 years! I have played in the Bronx in December and had better greens. The greens were so bad, half of them had bald sand patches on them. The once that were "normal" were like putting on velcro. The rough was not traditional rough. It was not maintained, cut or uniform. The rough was like playing on an unkept backyard. It seams like everyone walks at this course. I used a cart and the round was still over 5 hours!!!! Course could be nice, however it is maintained like garbage. To top it off they didn't even have a logo ball in stock for my collection. Won't be playing here anytime soon

Decimated greens

So sad that this course has been so poorly maintained. The greens are awful with severe damage to the grass throughout the course. Golfers should receive some kind of alert or warning about the greens and temporary tees before making a reservation or even when checking in.

Considering its November, not bad

First, its been a terrible golf season. Rain, rain and more rain, or brutal hot, no in between. considering this, I enjoyed the course. they do have a bit of a drainage problem on some holes and some of the greens are in tough shape but the track is interesting. I'm looking forward to the summer. the pro is friendly and accomodating. the facility need a cleaning and upgrade, the bathroom and lockers are right out of the 1950's. I wish they electric carts.

People pay to play here?

Terrible conditions. 3 temp greens on the first 9. The greens that were open weren’t even covered in grass, many had large swaths of dirt where the grass should be. So bad that despite a beautiful day we walked off after 9 holes. Run down and out of date this place is a must avoid. Worst course I played all season by far.

A okay course

The course is a okay. The fairways are bit dead from too much rain and greens are slow. The courses layout is good and interesting. Some par 4s play long from the back tee and the par 3s are 200 yard range from the back tee. If the conditions are better, I would be interested in coming back.

Very Solid Course

Overall it’s a very solid county course. Course was in good shape, pace of play at 6:50am was perfect, and the greens rolled true. I wish they would do something about the geese but it’s been that way for years. I like the front 9 (Red) much better, but the back (White) was in good shape too.

Half the course is closed on Thursdays

So to my surprise, only the front 9 of golf course was open (due to Thursdays maintainace).
GolfNow did not mention this whatsoever. The starter had a bit of a strong attitude, the practice green and driving range were BOTH closed.
In conclusion : the half course they made me place twice to justify the 18 holes I paid for, was in good condition. I expect golfnow will at the very least, offers me at least a half refund.
