Cobblestone Creek Country Club
A strong test of golf
Cobblestone Creek is another in a long line of stellar private country clubs in greater Rochester.
It's as difficult a course as I've played in a while, probably because I was dragged to the tips by a trio of sweet-swinging single-digit members who were in training for the club championship that weekend. The course ran firm and fast, which continuously got me in trouble off the tee, and near the greens, where my approaches would end up in no-man's land above the hole or behind the green in bunkers.
Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Craig Schreiner probably made the wild greens a bit too severe for most of us, but they're never boring. Long carries off the tee over wetlands and ponds push most members to the blue tees, where I'm sure I'll be next time I visit.
Cobblestone Creek is equally parts fun, scenic, maddening and delightful.
