Late September 2018. Even at $72, this place is not worth it. The entire course was in horrible condition. The starter insulted me in front of my group (he was trying to be funny ... he made a joke at my expense ... totally unnecessary)....More

Course was in very good shape in June, but the pace of play was horrible. Tee'd off at 10:30am on a Saturday and finished the round a little after 3:30pm. Had to wait on each hole to tee off. Other Than the long round, the...More

Played there 4th week in August. Never played there before. We checked in and were only charged half price because they had just aerated the greens. Turns out the whole course (except for the sand traps) was in terrible condition. Maybe it was because of...More

Yes, it's fairly wide open off the tee, but don't miss a fairway or you may not find the ball. I don't have an issue with that from a playing standpoint, but the issue becomes pace of play as folks search endlessly for balls only...More

My husband is a member of the Rookery. He loves it! Friendly staff and great course. We enjoy taking our family out on Friday nights to the happy hour (6pm-9pm) @ North Course, with dinner specials and a band.

We booked this over a week and a half ago to play on Friday (11/27/15) 8:00 AM tee time. Admittingly we are not pro golfers. About the seventh hole, some older man from the Management tells us that we had to move it faster. After...More
