Twin Hills Golf Course

Twin Hills Golf Course is newly owned and operated by Kris Oaks, and will continue to keep the Twin Hills tradition alive.

Twin Hills was built in 1969 by the twins, Warren and Russel Hill. The course takes their name and opened in 1970. The land on which the course sits was part of Moncony Farms, farmed by the Hill family since the mid-1800’s. The twins were prominent Holstein dairy cow breeders and also grew cherries, peaches, and apples. Pete Craig, designer of many of Rochester’s great golf courses hunted here in the 60’s when part of the farm was a registered Game Farm, raising pheasants. Pete told Warren and Russel that they had a wonderful piece of property for a golf course if they ever tired of farming. An idea was hatched even though neither twin had ever golfed.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course now plays to 6460 yards. Twin Hills is a Public 18 hole course. Hole # 5 is the signature hole. It is a par 3 with lots of water to make it interesting. It’s perennially on Rochester’s Best Holes list, and plays from 100 to 200 yards depending on tee and pin placement. #5 is part of what the locals call “Death Valley,” 3, 4, 5, and 6; be straight or you are doomed, but lots of fun if you make the shots. The rest of the course is a mix of hardwoods, ponds, creeks, and rolling terrain.
