Excellent pay and play in west sussex

First time playing at Rookwood. Excellent greens, despite conditions (April snow flurries first thing!). Only 6100 yards but intelligent layout with short holes protected by water, ditches, dog legs etc. Par threes have long carries over bunkers. Very friendly staff and fellow golfers. Lovely setting with nature reserve and lakes. Will definitely play again. Don?t sell to greedy developers for new houses!

Good course, challenge for higher handicap players

It was raining heavily when we played, but the fairways and greens still played very well.

Course was in decent, not perfect, condition but certainly better than some other courses I have played recently. Pace of play was excellent until the last five holes and then got caught up a bit. Good mix of holes that challenge in different ways. Only thing that it needs is some kind of warm up area, either a range or a few nets to allow a bit of a warm up.

Disappointing, not worth the money

The course is in a terrible condition, it would be too easy to blame the weather and covid 19 restrictions however i have played numerous courses since golf was re-opened this year.
Certainly not worth the ?30 being asked for a round of golf. Someone needs to do lots of work to get this Course up to scratch

Rookwood - Pride of Warnham

I enjoyed my round at Rookwood today. I tee'd off very early so had nobody ahead of me. The course is very popular and every slot was filled this morning even 48 hrs ago.
The course has a nice mix of holes, 10 Par4, 4 Par3 and 4 Par5.
There is a breakfast bar on the 7th, you can place an order and collect after the 9th, sadly I was too early for this, but there were bacon rolls and bar etc at the finish.
The fairways are nice and wide, there are various dog walkers who seem to know the risk and are fine with a ball in the head.
This is another course that is in danger of being lost due to housing, and it's right next to The Nature Reserve! This can't be allowed to happen.

Great round as always

Played Rookwood many times and enjoyed again.

Scored well despite 2 blobs. Could have been better with better putting.

Hidden gem in Horsham

The course in very good condition considering the bad winter they had and were badly flooded,
the greekkeepers do an excellent job all round and got it up standard very quickly. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would recommend this course as it has something for every standard of golfer.
