Golfed at The Rock and the course is in great shape. However, a course like this should have either GPS on its carts, a downloadable GPS app, or at least more visible yardage markers on the fairways. You get a lot of 1st time players here and that would certainly enhance the experience.

We played there during the past weekend and we were told their restaurant would be open until 8 PM. After our round we went in at 7:20 and surprisingly we were told that the kitchen was closed. That was very disappointing. The course is not near any other restaurants so when you have planned to eat dinner there and they decide to close early it takes away from the experience. Do they want repeat customers or be once and done.

Excellent course and food and drink service, horrible pro shop
Sep. 2019
I was at the golf course just yesterday, and observed a situation in the pro shop that could have resulted in a better outcome. It almost seemed to me the Manager and staff at the counter was trying to deter from a customer service inquiry regarding rain checks. Might be the choice of words, lack of customer service, and or a lack of listening to the situation that could have resolved much better than what was said by the pro shop staff to make a patron feel as if they were in the wrong. Other than that, the food and drink service was great and all other staff we met were excellent. The pro shop staff however needs to re-engage that this is a sport that is celebrated by all and is expensive. It felt that the individuals were being pushed away in what was meant to be a great week of activities while at the local hotel.

Great Service, but flawed staff at pro shop
Aug. 2019
I was at the golf course just yesterday. My son who is 11 yrs old wanted to shoot some balls at the range. The fellow at the pro shop said they had no driver for my son. Ok I’ll accept that this golf course carries only children’s clubs or adult. It almost seemed to me the fellow at the counter was trying to deter from him from playing. Might be his choice of words or intolerance. Other than that, the food was great and all other staff we met were excellent. The pro shop staff however needs to re-engage that this is a sport that is celebrated by all. We felt that we were being pushed away.

We enjoyed a wonderful round of golf with some very challenging holes (NOT embarrassed to admitting play from forward tees) and wonderful buffet afterward with delicious salmon and beef and desserts AND great duo playing familiar tunes for only $150 per couple ALL IN!!!
I'm almost reluctant to review for fear we wont get the tee time we want next time....

Great course layout and use of the natural surroundings

We had a group of 24 golfers, they were able to accomodate our group, the course is beautiful, granted some of the rocky outcrops get in the way, they are part of the natural beauty. The greens are slow and the rough is thick.

Gorgeous course, in great shape!

The course is superbly maintained and well designed. Stunning Canadian shield rocks serve as backdrops for several holes, providing a different sort of challenge than the average course.

Amazing Golf!!
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Had an amazing time golfing! two couples (beginners) played all 18 holes. What an amazing scenery. We witnessed a family of deer at one of the ponds drinking and eating leaves. They didn't feel threatened by the golfers. They did move on as we approached...but wonderful to see. The course if pretty challenging for beginners, but we played best ball and had a blast!

A quality GC
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Nick Faldo certainly did a great job here.This course is beautiful and mostly playable for the average golfer. A couple holes are a real challenge. Well maintained and managed. Pricey unless you play outside prime time. Very affordable if you package up a "play and stay" at Clevelands House (owns the course). I would not suggest walking this course unless you are very fit as it is up and down and long. It can be a trek from some greens to the next tee block but the scenery is magnificent and the course maintenance was spot-on .
I might have given the course a 4.5 or even a 5 but I had a bad service experience in the restaurant and the proshop seemed a bit indifferent. The food was very good but the service was a challenge. Fortunately management came to our rescue and sorted things out. Staff communication was the problem.

My son has done their golf camp for many years

Usually the kids max out around 12 years of age. It’s not expensive and gets the kids out for the day. Also parents can go golf or enjoy the best Cobb salad ever.
