Classic Ross Course

While this course has been updated several times over the years it is still a classic Donald Ross layout. The conditions are first class and there are plenty of hazards to get your attention. After a few relatively short holes the course starts to show its teeth. Holes 5-7 are the Trent Jones designs, but they meld seamlessly with the rest of the course. Gil Hanse has taken out a lot of trees creating some wonderful views across the layout. The last two holes are challenging finishers. Staff were all great.

Expected in a private course

I was invited here by a member being told this was a tough course but once out there it wasn't very hard at all. I managed to get a 47 In a poorly played round. This course seemed pretty easy for a Ross designed course. But everything else was very nice fairways tee boxes and facilities were all steller and hope to be invited back again soon and would love to join this nice country club in the future

Country Club of Rochester a well-honed classic

If you get a chance to play this Donald Ross classic, by all means go for it. It is extremely well groomed and it a pretty layout with lots of old trees. The staff is what a private club staff should be: friendly, knowledgeable but not stuffy. For those who love Ross tracks, this is one you will savor. Although the victim of past renovations, the course has happily been restored to Ross's original routing and design.

Very playable for women.
