Golf is an important sport for Rochester. For a city of its size, and considering the length (or shortness, to be more precise) of the golf season, Rochester has a great number of courses, ranging from very inexpensive municipal courses to world class country clubs. Beyond the availability of golf in the area, Rochester also has many links to golf. Walter Hagen, one of the greatest golfers ever was born in Rochester, Robert Trent Jones,_ a world reknowned course architect spent most of his childhood in East Rochester, and PGA Tour Pro Jeff Sluman was born in Greece.
