Rock Creek Golf Club

Played here on a Saturday morning before college football. They had a "Pregame Shotgun" intended to get everyone done in time to see the games on TV. For $59 each we got a hot breakfast burrito, the round of golf, cart, range, and a steak lunch. On top of that, because it was cart path only due to overseeding, we got a free round of golf in the future just for behaving ourselves and staying off the grass! Staff was friendly. Facilities very good. Enjoyed the golf course. Lots of elevations changes and the greens were tough. We had fun and would return - the value received for the price paid was awesome!

He would play this course again.

We just happen on this course while in Mobile. It's semi private but since it was Ladies Month, I got a discount on my round. It was in great shape and very interesting. Would play it again in a heart beat if we are back in Mobile.

I've played just about everywhere from Pass Christian to Pensacola, and I can't remember seeing a Gulf Coast course with elevation changes so dramatic as the ones at Rock Creek. It was really remarkable. It felt more like Birmingham than the beach.

I've always been a big fan of Earl Stone. He designs playable courses that won't overwhelm you. He found a nice balance of tough and fair holes at Rock Creek, one of the best courses near the Alabama Gulf Coast. Some of Rock Creek's toughest challenges come early in the round. After the opening par-5, the second hole drops from an elevated tee and doglegs hard right. The green, tucked behind a wetland, sits in the shadow of a wooded bulkhead. It's a beauty.

Nice public course in a resort town. Played from the tips and generally you had forgiving fairways to hit into. The greens were in very decent shape and had some slope and complexity to them. Speed of the greens was just slightly above average. Following a mow, I bet they speed up nicely. Pace of play was decent on a weekday morning. They run many specials so check for those prior to playing.
