All great golfers will tell you, “Practice makes perfect!”
Rocky River has public practice facilities that include a well manicured putting and chipping green, four target greens and 30 grass teeing stations. The putting green is open to the public during normal pro shop hours, but is sometimes closed in July and August afternoons to avoid problems associated with heat stress. You can also hit chip shots from around the public putting green, but we ask that shots are not lob shots that would create a ball mark.
The driving range has 20 artificial range stations that are used only when weather makes use of the grass teeing area impossible. Practice balls are available during golf shop hours at $5 for a small bag (30-35 balls) or $8 for a large bag (65 – 75 balls). We also have a range punch card good for 10 large baskets for the special price of $60 (a $20 savings).
The golf shop hours are 7 am to 7 pm during the summer, spring and fall months, and from 8 am to 5:30 pm during the winter months. Range balls are sold until the close of the golf shop, except on Monday and Thursday when the last basket is sold a ½ Hour before closing to allow for routine maintenance of the range.
