I played Rolling Green last September for the first time and there is no doubt in my mind that this is one of William Flynn’s best designs. The greensites are among the most formidable I’ve ever seen and the greenside bunkering is terrifying. The start is gentle and the course ups its game from the 5th and simply gets better and better with the ravine drama and greens that are as tough as any I’ve ever played. Sadly the course condition was not a patch on the architecture and somewhat detracted from the experience. I’d say its ranking is about right, but if the conditioning can be improved it should be well inside the PA top ten.
