Hole #10 on the North Course
The Genesee Valley Golf Course is a public facility located on the Southwest side of Rochester in Genesee Valley Park. It is the closest publicly accessible course to Downtown Rochester. We have 2 full 18-hole courses: the North (or “Old”) course and the South (or “New”) course. The North Course is longer and moderately challenging, the South Course is shorter consisting of only par 3’s and par 4’s. The South Course is short and simpler. It is perfect for beginners, families and anyone interested in a quick 9 or 18 holes at a great price. Although known by old-timers as the “New” course it was built in 1923, which makes it old by many US golf standards. The South Course is also home to Rochester’s only full 18 hole AFGL Certified Footgolf course.
The North Course opened in 1899 and was only the 4th course maintained at public expense in the country at that time. PGA Tour legend Calvin Peete did not pick up a golf club until friends dragged him to the game one summer day at Genesee Valley in 1966. He turned pro in his early 30s and was the winner of the 1985 Players Championship. He was the most successful African American to have played on the PGA Tour with 12 wins including the 1985 Players Championship!
Genesee Valley has a driving range with full grass teeing area and 3 practice greens. There is a fully-stocked Pro Shop, lessons are available, and the course supports junior golf clinics, camps, and leagues.
Tee Times are recommended and walk-ups are accepted on a space-available basis.
