Pace of play/NHRA

The pace of play was absolutely terrible. They booked a 2-some in the middle of like 6 foursomes. Waited on every single tee box for at least 4-5 minutes and then would wait in the fairway for another 4-5 minutes to hit approach shots. Also the drag-race is in town and the entire round of golf all we heard was drag racing. They should offer some sort of discount on these days when the drag race is in town.

Tricky Par 3's

I played very well except for a pair of unforgiving Par 3's.
If you're not straight - kiss your balls goodbye!

Rocky River

Staff was AMAZING! I had an issue having enough time to get ready before my tee time and actually take a second to breath because of my daughter having me running behind. The staff completely understood and sent the group in front of me off instead to give me a few extra minutes. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Will be back for sure!

Rocky River 3

The course is in excellent shape, there are a few holes where you cannot tell where the green is. the course is somewhat challenging and I would recommend playing it twice if you have the time. Pace of play was great as was the cost. The greens can be somewhat tricky to read as the breaks are not as large as they appear.
Overall I really enjoyed the course.

Lesson Learned

Do NOT play here right after a tournament unless you enjoy their TOUGHEST pin locations.
The ONLY hole with an easy pin had the tees at the TIPS!

Fluff Rough

Course in overall good shape but rough is very fluffy and mowed uneven around greens making chipping tough with unfair bad lies
One hole today was also under construction during our play
This course should be charging $30-40 and not $50-60

Great course for money

Course was in great shape and is a great value.

They should invest in course rangers to help with pace of play. It would just make the experience better.

great day on the links

I've been wanting to play this course for some time now as friends of mine had told me about the course. I went by myself but was paired up with 3 other gentlemen. Good guys and a good time had by all. Food order had been placed on the 8th hole so it would be ready at the turn. It wasn't for some reason which put us a little behind. No big deal. Hot dog was huge...........and luke warm at best. I'll be back for sure.

Wonderful experience

Played the white tees and it was more than enough for me. I found the greens to be very challenging but fair. Corse conditions were above average country club condition at a public facility. I will be returning in subsequent months.
The golf staff was top notch and offered valuable tips.

Excellent Course

As always Rocky River is a great hometown course but for a resident of Concord it is overpriced. To be a City maintained and owned course you should make it more affordable to the residents as $5 off should be an embarrassment to officials. Just overpriced.

Great shape; personnel excellent

The course itself was in great condition, however the greens were probably aerated a week or so ago and were still 'bumpy'...cost me 3-4 putts...
