1 IS LOWEST - 10 IS HIGHEST
ROSE CITY GOLF COURSE -
Maintenance: The maintenance
on the front nine was very poor, with lots of brown grass
everywhere and the green grass was dry and pale. There
was still construction going on when we last played here, so
it's quite possible that with the new irrigation we hope they
were putting in that this will no longer be the case.
The back 9 is much nicer with some truly excellent holes and
nice green scenery.
Scenery: The front 9 was quite
average - quite a few trees, but very flat. The back
nine was better with some more water and greener trees and
grass. You have a school bordering the best hole on the
course, the 14th hole, which kind of detracts from that one,
but this side of the course is quite nice overall.
Fun: Most of the front nine is
pretty bland - very little water, lots of straight and flat
fairways. The back nine was better, with the 14th and
15th holes being more fun, and a nice little dog leg on the
10th hole was a nice touch. Overall, not one of our
favorite courses. Lots of tough greens make the short
game a challenge.
Safety: The trees lining the
fairways do a pretty good job of shielding you from other
golfers, but you do have to cross one street. It is a
nicely controlled street with light traffic though.
Staff: We were running too late to
really notice - so I guess they must have been okay. No
hassles of any kind.
Design: They could have done a lot
more with this course, we think. The fairways are mostly
long, flat, and straight - very few manmade hazards, and lots
of fairways facing each other, detracting from the safety.
Value: This course is
well-priced since the price is controlled by the city, but
there are nicer courses nearby for similar prices.
Other Comments: Hopefully the
renovation project will result in a more aesthetically
pleasing course. September is a good time to play here -
specials like $16 for 18 holes can be found during this time.
