Countdown to Renovation of Rockwood Golf Course
Rockwood Golf Course will undergo a total golf course renovation with construction anticipated to begin November 1, 2015. We’re excited about this much needed improvement and hope you enjoy our “countdown clock”. The course will receive a new design with the course yardage measuring 5,291 to 7,067 yards. Included in the project are new greens, tees, fairways, bunkers, cart paths, water features and a state of the art and highly efficient irrigation system. We have enlisted the design services of Colligan Golf Design and special attention has been taken to insure that the layout design will be attractive to all skill levels of players. The course will be both challenging and fair.
Once construction begins, a special page will be available for viewing of construction pictures. The anticipated re-opening date for the new course is October 1, 2016. Stay tuned for further updates as they become available. Click layout to view the new design.
Fort Worth Golf offers the golfer a quality, enjoyable, safe and comprehensive golf program through four municipally owned golf courses, promoting golf as a lifetime sport. Each course has a unique layout and is designed to challenge every level of skill. The City provides facilities to promote golf skills, individual and group lessons, organizational services for tournaments, support for golf associations based at each course with the opportunity for tournament play on a regular basis.

"The River's Edge" @ Rockwood
This innovative practice course can be played as either a 3 hole or 6 hole course. How do you know on a daily basis which course you would be playing? If it's an even numbered date of the month then it's a 6 hole par 3 course and if it's an odd numbered date of the month then it's the 3 hole course which consists of 2 par 4's and 1 par 3. Cost to play the course is $6 for juniors and $10 for adults. The fee is good for all day so if you want to play a few holes in the morning and then come back in the evening, just hang onto your receipt and that'll be your voucher to get back on the course. And remember, this is a "walking only" golf course; sorry no carts. And what if you want to play the course after your play our regular 18 hole course...then your fee is 1/2 price or $5 for adults and $3 for juniors.
