The initial investment in Rockland Golf Club totaled about $5,001: $1 for a book entitled "How to Build a Golf Course," and the rest for the acquisition of 118 acres of land. From the time of its opening in 1961, additional purchases helped the golf club expanded outward, creating the semiprivate 27-hole course it's known as today.
The original 18 holes remain distinct from the newer nine; whereas the prior feature towering trees along their fairways and undulating greens, the latter are likened to a links-style course, collectively challenging players of all skill levels. Rockland has also grown to include a pro shop as part of its modernization, offering equipment, lessons, and club fitting to its members and their guests.
