Rocky River Golf Club is the premier public course in the Charlotte metropolitan area and is owned by the City of Concord. It is the ONLY municipally owned golf course to be rated in the North Carolina Top 100, and one of only 6 public courses in the state to make the top 100. Managed by the Embassy Suites, Concord Golf Resort and Spa, it is one of the only courses in the Charlotte area to offer stay and play packages with such a fantastic hotel affiliate.

This is one of the best public golf courses I've played. The course is challenging for a duffer like me (31 handicap), and is beautifully maintained. I typically play in the late afternoons and never have a problem with pace of play. An added bonus is the wildlife you may see on and around the course. I seen Great Blue... More

This is a really nice public golf course. Wide open fairways here. The course has nice holes, is well maintained, has friendly staff, and is not too expensive.

Staff worked hard to make our time at the course pleasant. Golf course fun and in good shape. Adjustments were made to allow our food to stay refrigerated until ready to eat at the turn vice at the onset of play.

This is a great golf course and the people there were very nice. The challenge was not knowing the course meant a lot of blind shots so I had to okay it twice. The greens were in great shape and rolled true. I'd recommend if you're in the area.

The course is actually a decent course but $65 on the weekends for a PUBLIC course, way overpriced!!! But the sad thing is the gouging doesnt stop there!! Don't come to the course hungry because by the prices at the grill the cook must make $500k a year!! Hotdogs $6 per and hamburgers over $9 a piece and thats not... More

Sorry you thought the course was not worth the price. We have the best maintained public course in the Charlotte area, and have lots of very happy customers at the $65 rate. Our Food prices are not quite as high as your exaggerated examples, and we have DO have combo pricing with side items and a drink for $7.95 on... More

Played a three-some round here today, cart path only due to heavy rain overnight. The greens are the best in the area for public play courses, and the fairways are in great shape. The greens are large and undulating, putting will be challenging as the greens get faster with summer weather. Pace of play was fine, the round was done... More

Played today (3/11/14). Paid $39 (reasonable rate on Clickit.com). Nice clubhouse with bar and grill staffed by friendly employees. Course is located directly behind dragstrip practically in the shadows of Charlotte Motor Speedway. Good fast greens. Has practice facility but you must hit from carpet mats. Over priced food and beverage. For example bottle of water was $3.50. Golfer's lunch... More

Thanks for the review. We make every effort to provide a friendly staff and excellent experience for our guests. It sounds like you enjoyed the course. I understand not wanting to hit from mats. The grass teeing area on the range will be opening within the next 2 weeks, but we limit range use to the mats during the winter... More

The tee boxes are level, fairways and fringe grass was very tightly mowed and bunkers were in great condition! The greens are Mini Verde they rolled very true and fast (probably a 9 on Stimp) The green complexes... More

Rocky River was probably in the best condition it has been in some time. Lush fairways, and very smooth greens. The layout has always been one of the best around. Even though it is jammed between Z-Max Dragway and the over-developed Concord Mills, Charlotte Motor Speedway complex, only a little traffic noise will impact the experience. The course features gently... More
