Welcome To Round Barn Golf Club
The “Rochester City Course” was originally designed as a 9 hole layout and opened for play in 1972. While the layout was sufficient at that time, Rochester’s golf interest grew. The RHS golf team began practicing and hosting matches at the course (the 1980 team won the IHSAA State Championship)”The Fulton County Golf League was formed and the Rochester City Course was selected as the desired layout. Corporate outings and community fundraisers also became popular. All of this in addition to Rochester’s regular daily players and out of town visitors. The course name was eventually changed to “Mill Creek Golf Course”. In a highly debated and somewhat controversial decision, a second nine was approved. The additional nine encountered delays during the construction process, but persistence paid off in the fall of 1992 when Mill Creek officially opened as an 18 hole layout. The back nine was designed primarily on land formerly used as a federal fish hatchery and, as a result, several holes incorporate water hazards (see scorecard). The Rochester Park and Recreation Board has continued to take a progressive approach to the golf course and initaited a Master Parks Plan which was intended to establish and strengthen Mill Creek as a course of quality and affordability Course Photos. The 2005 Golf Season brought about another name change and another new look. The “Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek” opened in the renovated Gerig Round Barn and, although the holes themselves are the same, the course configuration obviously had to change as well.
