2008 Golf Digest 4-Star Rating
"Best Places to Play"
Island greens. Long tree-lined fairways. Dog-legs left . Dog-legs
right. Abundant wildlife - deer that actually come into play on some
holes. The people who love this course play to all levels. They like
The Rock because it's an experience, not just a round of golf.
This emerald was cut out of limestone and is trimmed by hardwood
and cedar, crafting each fairway separately over 400 acres. Play on
The Rock is controlled. Each group of golfers is in their own game,
and virtually isolated from other golfers. Each hole has four tees and
therefore, four possible challenges to choose from.
"I like The Rock. The holes are isolated so you can golf
in scenic seclusion. The ponds, lakes and waterfalls are
too pretty to be called water hazards."
--- Rick Sylvain,
former Michigan Travel Editor, Detroit Free Press.
The Rock participates in the Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary System,
proof that this isn't just one of the best golf courses in the Midwest--this
is a thriving wildlife habitat as well.
