Tour Rockwood Golf Course before it opens

Posted Dec. 8, 2016

Be among the first to see the newly-renovated Rockwood Golf Course during a series of walking tours open to the public.

The 77-year-old golf course near Jacksboro Highway has undergone a $4.4 million renovation that includes new drainage and irrigation systems, cart trails, greens, tees, fairways and sand bunkers. Work began in November 2015.

Tours will be offered, weather permitting, at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon on these dates:

  • Dec. 13, 15, 20 and 22.
  • Jan. 3, 5, 10 and 12.
  • March 7, 9, 21, 23, 28 and 30.

Call the golf shop at 817-624-1771 to reserve a spot.

The reopening of Rockwood has been pushed back to July 2017 to ensure proper turf establishment. Excessive rainfall last summer forced a delay in installing grass for the course. By delaying the opening, the turf will be allowed to establish better once higher temperatures return in late spring and early summer.
