“Great teaching course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

It had been a couple of years since I had played regularly and I had lost my swing. While in Concord visiting relatives I took some golf lessons from Ryan Brickley. He didn't drastically try to change my swing and didn't make the changes too complicated. After the third lesson I was able to hit the ball consistently with all my clubs. I also played golf there one day and thought the course was in great shape for March. All staff were very friendly. I would go back again and play golf there.

“Great public golf course!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Just came back from Charlotte a couple of weeks ago and despite being February the course was a real treat to play. Friendly staff and I played with another single from the tips. Course is challenging yet straight forward. Fairways were in their normal winter, dormant, brown state, but the course was still in great shape. Greens were quicker than I thought they would be at this time. I would definitely play it again, wish they had more public courses like this back on Long Island, NY. Oh yeah...and the price....walked 18 for $28. Never getting a course and deal like that where I'm from!

“Can't wait to go back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Went on a golf trip with some friends and played several courses in the Charlotte area. We all agreed Rocky River was the highlight. Great food and drinks in the clubhouse after our round. If you order the wicked buffalo wrap be prepared, it is good but wicked hot! Looking forward to next year!

“really rough shape, staff polite but not friendly, over priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We chose this place because it was at a convienent location for both of us. Would not go back. Could be nice, well designed, but upkeep is poor. Greens were so bad, we quit trying to putt and just picked our balls up. Everything had a "shabby feel". Pro shop, snack bar seemed like someplace from the 70's...except the price, two bad hamburgers and two bottle waters cost $18. There are a lot of places to play around Charlotte which are better for the same fees or less. In one sentance, about an average public course at the price of a better golf club.

R B, Manager at Rocky River Golf Club, responded to this review, October 21, 2011
The summer months are particularly hard on Bentgrass greens, and ours are no exception. In early September, they are not at their best after the peak of the heat and stress. We are converting to new greens next June, and Bermudagrass which will be much more heat tolerant, resulting a a greatly improved surface during the heat of the summer. The condition in the Spring and Fall is excellent.
