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.

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

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,

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.

The montly calender contains to many competitions and does not allow the social golfer many suitable dates around shift patterns to play.
I believe 20 days in a month would be acceptable for competitions and the leftovers be allocated to pay and play with booked tee times....the later in the day you get the cheaper the fee if light may become an issue.
The club should also offer twilight fees for late afternoon/evening games where bad light may not allow the full 18 holes.
Local rules should adopt a single player does have standing on the course and if quicker should be allowed through...members in groups do not seem to allow it!
Local rules should also state that in non-competition events then whoever is ready plays...i see far to many golfers waiting for their mate to play!
More benches should be placed on the tee boxes.

Value for money only when playing with a Member or with the twilight offer. Otherwise quite a dear round of golf.

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.

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.
