Great Rock Golf Club
Poor conditions ...
I must preface this by saying I am a 6 handicap and used to play this course quite often a few years ago. I stopped going about 3 years ago when conditions started to falter. Now that there is new management and positive reviews I decided to give it another shot and I was majorly disappointed. I called the pro shop yesterday to ask how the conditions were (any aeration, temporary greens, etc). They said no , the course is in great condition . So with that I went to play expecting a decently maintained course . There is NO depth in Grass on the fairways first of all so if you like hitting off dirt this is your course. Also the greens were pretty much hitting from a sand trap. Huge aeration marks and sand EVERYWHERE. Nothing better than watching a putt bounce 20 times from 10 feet. The greens are also mostly dead and I don't see them growing in properly so with that I WILL NEVER PLAY THIS COURSE AGAIN. Also the sand traps are filled with rocks so that was fun. It's a shame because the views and holes are very nice but the lack of course maintenance makes this course well below all other courses on the island.

Always a great time
Greens were airrated so putting just stunk but the course was in good condition and its always fun to play because of the driving challenges. Every hole is different and requires a different shot off the tee.

Booked this on golf now with no idea if the course conditions , including punched greens with to much sand on top , restaurant under construction , Snack bar vacant, no cart girl , no food or beverage , not even as much as a bag of chips to be found .
Granted the fees were only 30 dollars but it wasn't worth the experience

Great Course & superb Staff
The course was air rated but still in great shape!!! Spectacular course!!! challenging & plays extremely well. Had a great round. Staff makes you feel like you are at a private country club!!! Can't wait to play there again & AGAIN.

fun , challenging coursa for all skill levels
Played for first time, aerated rate is a great deal. And the course is in exactly that condition// aerated greens and portions of fairway with dirt "pills" all over the place. The course plays moderate from the white's and difficult from the tips. Excellent pace as the round today took me 3 hours and 20 minutes, granted i played as a single (20 cap) on a wednesday afternoon. T'd off at 110 and done with 18 at 430. Played through two threesomes of old men kindly wAved me through, Drank beer no problem the ranger was very cool guy... Had a blast . Lawnmower crew was courteous and let me hit before they crossed my path. Very pleased and will be coming back tomorrow. Shot a disappointing 100, hard to put on aerated greens .
