Undated hamburger patties, flies in the kitchen and mold-like substances earned a Gordonville establishment a “C” in the most recent round of restaurant inspections by the Grayson County Health Department. Rock Creek Golf Club, located at 219 Club House Drive, received the lowest grade on the county’s inspections.


The health department’s summary report said inspectors observed multiple flies in the restaurant’s kitchen and and washing areas, to the point that there were “too many to count.” Sinks throughout the kitchen area lacked soap or paper towels and “mold-like” substances were observed in an ice baffle and on the exterior of at least one piece of machinery.


The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”


An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.
