About Rock River GAP

Rock River GAP, Inc. was purchased March 2010 by a local Dixon couple, John and Annette Lawrence. The 18 hole Golf Course was formerly Rock River Country Club which began in 1913. Now with many new updates and being OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, Rock River GAP invites you to enjoy all of the great things we offer. Being open to the public offers everyone the chance to enjoy a great golf experience.
We look forward to having you here. 


In the spring of 2010, owners John and Annette Lawrence purchased and completely remodeled the old Rock River Country Club interior into a beautiful, open to the public, restaurant, pro shop, pool, and banquet venue. John started and is the president and owner of A.J. McDirtt, Inc, an earth moving company. The couple is from Dixon Illinois. They have 3 children (Joe, Charlie and Kate) and 6 grandchildren. They are very excited to have this chance to give the community a place for everyone from everywhere to come and enjoy. Opening this former country club up to the public gives everyone the chance to enjoy the golf course, and banquet venue. With the contemporary style, the facility offers so many options for seating. It is just right for any occasion. Something the couple prided their design ideas around was to make a place where everyone is welcome and you can feel comfortable in the variety of environments. No matter what your style, come in your jeans or dress up for a night on the town, everyone will love the experience you have at Rock River GAP.
