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.

Nice course - penal rough

A decent course with juicy rough off the first cut which slows the round down and spoils the enjoyment somewhat. Course was in good condition with nice greens. Signposting is a bit hap hazard if you've not played there before and clear, prominent signs pointing the way to the next tee would help. Very slow food service if you want a breakfast and the food is average at best. Some beers not available. Not a lot of care seems to go into this area

A nice long course off the yellow tees which I really enjoyed, even though it was very wet when we played there. Some interesting holes on a course in good conditions considering how wet it was.
I was having a blinder of a round when it bucketed down and the 16th is right next to the club house. This was too good and opportunity for the rest of my group who were not having such a good day.

28 pound is too much considering the condition, Very boggy - the greens and fairways were OK but if you get into trouble in the rough then you will struggle.

Cracking course. Played it today and couldn\'t believe it when they said it was council owned. Greens were superb - not super fast but true. Unbelievable value at £12 during the world cup. Impressed.

This is the first time i played this course. Was a hot sunny day, so the fairways and greens were firm. Was most impressed with the condition of the greens, running nice and true. Quiet open course but as soon as you strayed to far of line your ball was basically lost. Good value for money will play this course again.

A very well kept course with very good greens. If the wind helps on the 1st the yoe have an easy front and avery hard back. If the wind is in your face on the first you have an ok front and an easier than usual back. Get about 20 pts going out because the back 9 is tricky.

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!

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.
