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. It is a beautiful and challenging course that is kept in great condition year round.

Course is normally in good shape. If you play green tees you will find it not too long and not too short. I love the layout. Only negatives, staff not the nicest in the world and the green fees are a little over priced, however if you are a senior the rates are 32.00.

Really great and interesting golf course in good conditions. Played it a few times during the last year and I always found good deals on golf now.

If you're into golf and racing, this place is meant for you. The drag strip and oval tracks are visible from the course and it is right next to a very large hotel (Courtyard). The course itself is tough enough for your average golfer just be sure to show up later in the year than March as the Bermuda grass... More

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.

Has always been one my favorite courses in town. Course is always in great shape. Challenging but rewarding, you can definitely score if you keep it in the fairway...

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.

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
