Rocky River Golf Club at Embassy Suites Golf Resort & Spa

Recreation
5 minutes away
Rocky River Golf Club is the premier public golf course in the Charlotte metropolitan area. Located at the Embassy Suites, Concord Golf Resort and Spa, it’s one of the only courses in the area to offer stay and play packages. The Dan Maples design is a fair, but challenging layout that uses the existing terrain to create a beautiful, winding layout. Dramatic rock outcroppings and various species of native wetland grasses surround the course to create a remote setting. Large, contoured greens make accurate iron play a necessity, and length off the tee will make at least two of the three par 5’s reachable in two shots. With a renovation to the greens in 2012, Rocky River Golf Club now features Mini Verde Bermuda grass putting greens, which provide a great surface all year round.
