courses in Rochester are part of a long and storied history dating
back to the earliest days of golf in this country. Some of history's
most famous golf course architects have made their mark here.
Rochester is the home of six courses designed by Donald Ross, three Robert Trent Jones
courses and one designed by A.W. Tillinghast.
Donald Ross of Scotland, perhaps one of the most famed architects of
all time, designed Monroe Golf Club in Pittsford, Brook-Lea Country
Club in Gates, as well as both courses at Oak Hill. Portions of Oak
Hill's famed East Course, in fact, were later redesigned by other
noted architects as Robert Trent Jones and Pete Dye.
With over 70 golf courses in metropolitan Rochester - from world-class
private clubs, to semi-private and public, to executive par-3s and
municipal park courses - Rochester golfers have many choices.
