What the club says: The course, a challenging 6714 yards off the competition tees, was designed by Mr C D Lawrie, a top architect who was also an advisor to the Royal and Ancient Championship Committee. The par 72 course has four par 5's and four par 3's. The longest hole on the course is the 550 yard fifth; the shortest the 138 yard ninth. Every hole presents a unique challenge to golfers of varying levels of ability!

18 holes of winter fun! I have played here several times over the years and of recent, the course and clubhouse have both improved. The parkland layout offers a good test with some superb greens. The par 3 11th is a huge challenge (Maybe a bit too much imo) but there are plenty of interesting short par 4's. Our group all had a breakfast after our round which was great. Superb value.

Supurb well worth a visit

Went on a society’ day here with the Norfolk and Suffolk golfmates society 7th aug and all I can say is well worth a visit
Currently Norfolk/ Suffolk bone dry and had a severe rain drought this course one of the few with grass on the fairways and you are not playing of ground like concrete
Course was challenging but not to hard
Greens played spot on and ran true
All staff from the pro shop to the bar were all friendly and informative
Pricing for food and drink all reasonable unlike a lot of courses in the region
Well worth a visit on your own , with friends or a society

Lovely course, great greens and friendly staff and members

1st time playing rookery Park yesterday, we had been recommended here by a few people we played with, and finally got round to playing here, as soon as we arrived we were impressed lovely practice greens and chipping area. Went into the pro shop got all booked in the had some time to practice and use the practice area, whilst we were there a member started chatting to us making us feel very welcome and giving us some tips. Playing the round the whole course was in fantastic condition, would definitely return.

Very enjoyable place to play golf.

I live about an hour and fifteen minutes from this course and don't know why it has slipped my notice until now. Having played it once I returned within a fortnight to play again. Both times the experience was very good, conditions were great, course layout was excellent and the welcome from staff and members was brilliant. Worth checking out if you like parkland layouts,

Great Course

First time I have played this course and enjoyed it thoroughly. The greens were great and the whole course looked great and not straightforward to play

Disappointing condition

This could be a good course however: the bunkers have no sand, the tees need cutting as its like playing out of the semi rough, some of the tees are huge but you are given a 5ft strip to tee off from?! The first 3 holes are permanently waterlogged and to be honest, I wouldn't play it again.

Course condition spoilt by the bunkers.

The course itself was in good condition, it's a great shame that the bunkers were in such very poor state. Little or no sand, and when there was it was rock hard, guess it hadn't been raked for many days. I know that you're not supposed to visit them, but when you do because the ball runs a long way,you expect the sand to be in much better state.

Nice course, well worth the trip. Course at it's peak from April to August greens good all year round. Past drainage issues seem to be resolved and course now good 12 months a year. A challenge for golfers of all abilities being one of the longer courses in the county when played from the competition tees. Phone ahead for best advice from proshop regarding times to play, course often quiet in afternoons. Beer is good in clubhouse check ahead for restaurant times for good bar food.
