    The land on which Mill Creek Golf Club sits on is the highest point in Monroe County, with views to the east of the Rochester skyline and the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes to the south. Rochester's finest 18 Hole Championship Golf Course integrates the spirit of the unique glacial drumlin that bisects 320 acres of forested rolling hills, windswept fescues, rock creeks and waterfalls.
    Creative ideas blended into unique natural beauty are hallmarks of the Renowned Golf Course Architectural Firm of Ray Hearn & Paul Albanese and their design philosophy. Their ability to communicate their knowledge and utter willingness to understand the needs of the client result in a satisfying building experience. The permanent evidence: a pleasurable, memorable experience for the eventual players of the golf course.
    In addition to our 18 Hole Golf Course & 9 Hole Short Course, Mill Creek offers one of the area's best practice facilities and a top-notch golf academy. The Tavern Restaurant is the perfect place for great food and a relaxing atmosphere, and our Wedding & Banquet facility can accommodate up to 200 people for any casual or formal occasion.

    Mill Creek sits on one of the high points in the Rochester area. Although much of the course is played around the hill you really only notice a dramatic elevation change on holes #10 and #11.
    The greens are quite large, of varying shapes, quite a bit of contour and best of all, were in great condition. Holes #4 and #16 share a large green that I didn't notice the first time through.
    Some of the tee shots were blind and many holes offered split fairways for different routes of approach (holes #5, #11, #14, and #17). A nice touch at each tee was the QR Codes found on the tee signage. I'm sure other courses with begin using this method to replace yardage booklets.
    Mill Creek has little water come in to play so you'll have mostly sand and fescue to deal with (providing you like to see the entire course like me).
    With five tee decks the course offers a great challenge for all skill levels. The Black tee tip the scale at close to 7,000 yards while the front Gold tees are close to 5,000 yards. My favourite holes were the par 3 10th. Due to the elevation change on the 10th it made it a tough tee shot club selection. The par 4 13th was another hole I liked but my score didn't indicate this fondness.
    Another nice touch the was unique to Mill Creek was the cooler of bottled ice water found near the shared green of hole #4 and #16. An honour system of $1 allows you to pull form the cooler. What a great idea!
    While approaching Mill Creek I though the course would be a mandatory cart course but I did see a number of people walking.
    The clubhouse Tavern Restaurant is a beautiful location to enjoy an after round beverage. The cozy bar satisfied my quench after a frustrating but enjoyable round.
    A shorter nine hole course is also available for play.
    Mill Creek is must play if visiting the Rochester area.
