RACE...GENDER...EXPERIENCE Arrived at the golf course super excited for my very first game of golf. Ive visited the driving range but 18 holes. The weather was amazing and I picked my golf "appropriate" attire all by myself...with guidance from my experienced golf partner. My personal clubs loaded on cart, were informed that a party of one has been added to our party of two (Oh no, I have to let him know Im a newbie & if hes looking for a fast paced competitive round he may want to go with the party of two behind us). Introductions, I warn him about how great I am (smirk). Completely okay with my greatness, lol, we head to 1st hole. Hurray! Anxiety disappears, excitement returns. We begin to play, the guys are networking and giving me pointers...its actually challenging fun. I ask if Im able to take my turn if the group ahead of us are still finishing up at the flag; they laugh, in unison "yes, youre not going to hit it that far". Shortly after blue shirt on the golf cart stops by our carts & talks golf jargon to the fellas. They say okay, he moves on, when we advance to the next hole I notice him sitting on the hill watching us, Im playing too slow. Guys explain the par and pace of game to me and that after I hit just take my ball up near them, Im loving it, I get to swing less, golfing is exhausting. Party of one comes over to give me a pointer to trust that Ill hit the ball and blue shirt comes racing over talking about lessons etc etc. He assures blue shirt that he only met us today and was paired with us by the office that hes not my instructor. Blue shirt drives off talking about 2nd warning. I am now feeling stressed and no longer able to concentrate nor enjoy the game because Im being stalked and watched. I cant believe Im the only person on the entire course thats not experienced, esp when were right behind the group before us and at times waiting for them to advance. The final straw! I hit the ball terribly near the water, do over. I get a different club, line up, do my practice swings, stand up straight, bend my knees, head down, stick my butt out, eye on the back of the ball & swing...only a little better but Im stoked. Here comes blue shirt swooping in even more rude than all the times before saying this is our final warning and he watched me hit the ball 3-4 times. By now Im livid and hes lying or blind either way Im glad hes not keeping my score. I correct him & tell him hes way too focused on chastising me. He uses the excuse that hes doing his job. Completely false again because your job is to ensure that the game moves at pace which we had already adjusted on our on. Aside from that if it were that important perhaps the timer on our cart would work. Long and short of it he told us to head back to get a refund which we did, happily and will never return. As Im packing up my clubs and cart several patrons walked by smiling, speaking and made small talk so I in no way believe that anyone complained about me or my pace of play. I do in fact feel that I was targeted by blue shirt on his golf cart based on his own personal short comings that took himself way too serious for his position because he could. It is my opinion as was reflected in his tone, word choices, and actions, that he attempted to devalue me, the gentlemen that I was playing with, our money, time, and desire to play the game of golf. There were other novice players, I even saw other women playing, and there were other African Americans scattered here and there. My conclusion: its okay to be one or the other but at Rocky Point Golf Course it is not enjoyable nor fun nor tolerated to play golf if you are a Black Female new to the sport if blue shirt is perched on his cart. Yes one bad apple spoils the bag. I will never step foot on Rocky Point Golf Course again and will tell everyone about my experience.
I play Baltimore County courses 2-3 times a week and really like Rocky Point. The layout is fair, wide fairways and decent greens. The staff in the clubhouse is very friendly and helpful. I really think the problem they have is with the range balls, driving range and walk to the range. The range balls are probably the oldest on any courses the baskets are all metal and rusty unlike all the other courses which have plastic, The mats are in the worst of any Baltimore County Course and even any Baltimore City Course. They need to be replaced immediately. The area from the pro shop to the range has no grass- just weeds and needs to be sprayed and seeded.
Played here a handful of times. Fun course but the price seems to have crept up over the last couple years. $45 to play on a weekday for a municipal course?? Either way the front 9 is pretty simple and very open while the back 9 plays around more water and it far trickier. Some really neat holes and views, especially on 11th par 3. Lots of fun but worth $50.... dont know. also a dry course, bummer
A bit pricey.for a municipal course in this region. Also is a dry course so no beers. Not that my group drinks more than a beer per round but its just annoying. Great water views. Lots of boring par fours. Also, the on cart time management system is obnoxious for a course you wait so much at for nearly every shot. There are better places around Baltimore for golf.
In the middle of scenic nowhere. Pretty course. Played it a week ago. Pretty open so you can recover from a wayward shot. Early in the morning the sun can make it a challenge to follow a tee shot hit eastward. Friendly staff. Was pretty empty the day we played, probably because the temp was in the 30s early. It is pricy compared to other nice local public courses.
Needless to say were still in winter months so the course needs a little work but all in all it was a good outing. Rocky Point is one of my favorite courses with its water views. Its a challenging course but very compact in terms of moving from green to next tee. It was a little chilly when we started but warmed up pretty fast. Great course.
This is a nice course with some great water views. This is a Baltimore Muni course and its very well maintained. Its a bit out of the way, but the value is great if you dont mind a little bit of a drive. Its not a very challenging course, but its always fun to play.
Course is always in good shape, great course for all skill levels, professional , courteous and friendly staff. AND THE VIEW IS AMAZING.
Love this course. Overall Condition was good. Greens were a little bumpy but otherwise good shape. Very scenic straightforward course.
Really fun challenging course. Mostly rewarding if you cant keep it on the fairway.
Good solid course, very straight forward everything is in front of you no gimmicks.
