The Rookery is a piece of heaven close to Marco Island and Naples Florida. The course staff, very friendly, course conditions extremely good and to watch the sunrise from the first tee was amazing. To feel the marsh and wet lands wake up to the sun, breath that fresh ocean breeze just great. I go back two or more times a year, I am fortunate to live just 1.30 minutes away in Miami. My wife and friends love it, my son feels its a real challenge from the blue tees. I just love the design and the conditions of the greens.

Must be accurate from tee to play this course. Very tight w crown fairways running fast and firm. The staff working were outstanding and cater to your needs. Pace was 4:25 which for this track was pretty good. Def say book on golf18.com seeing they offer a few discount tee times everyday. I cant wait to go back. Fyi beverage cart was avalable w drinks and snacks plus easy on the eyes

This course is beautifully landscaped and well maintain. There were a few holes where we couldn't ride on the fairway but there has been a lot of rain this summer so it's understandable. Just means one needs to take several sticks over to the ball. The course is demanding, but still forgiving if you play within your game. Highly recommendable!

Somewhat challenging to find course in Fiddler's Creek Subdivision.

Played in the early afternoon in late July. There was hardly anyone on the course which was pleasantly surprising. The course was in great shape, greens were true and not aerated nor sanded. The course was challenging yet friendly. Use the GPS.

We got a Hot Deal on Golf Now for $22 per golfer.

Great deal and Great Course! Highly Recommended

I have played at The Rookery many times over the last 10 years and it is in AWESOME condition.....staff in the pro shop NICE job ...the cart man got a tip but didn't put my driver head cover on just threw it in with my towel and also never touched my 7 iron it was filled dirt and grass..he's been there along time he should KNOW better an d it wasn't busy...but maybe his big rimmed hat got in the way of seeing no cover on the driver and all the dirt on the 7 iron...

...If you want to have a great experience PLAY "THE ROOKERY".....A GEART WALK not spoiled on this course

We loved this course! The condition of it was a credit to the owners. The new cart navigational systems are spot on. Only drawback we found was no pro shop or food after 6 pm. We would definitely go back again - probably earlier in the day.

Enjoyed the course. Booked as a single. But as another reviewer pointed out, members are stuffy about playing with non-members. I played by myself as a member played the the whole 18 just behind me.

And yes, I invited him to join me. He refused.

It is hard to imagine a more beautiful wetlands setting for golf. Wading birds virtually ignore you as your ride by. Although I played the morning after an all day steady rain the course retained very little standing water and played true and fair. Greens were challenging yet rewarded good putts. The fairways and tee boxes were in excellent conditions. Comfort stations offered water, ice, and cold towels. This is a first class course worth playing.

This course just jumped to #1 in my favorite courses. Great layout, great shape, great clubhouse, great pro shop, great location. Everything about this place is just perfect. I came in an hour early for my tee time, checked in and went straight to the first tee. It was cart paths only because of hard rain from the previous day, but I actually liked it coz it slowed me down a lil bit. I wanted to take some pictures and it seemed like everywhere you are in the golf course is picture worthy, it was absolutely gorgeous. Not only is the golf course amazing but the staff also are super nice especially Mike at the pro shop, by far the nicest golf staff I've met. He made me feel so welcome and that was prior to knowing that I drove 2hrs to play this course. Overall, it was really a great experience. Well worth the trip. Definitely a MUST PLAY golf course wether you're a local or from out of town.

Despite heavy summer rains fairways and greens were firm and fast. Some casual water was evident on a few fairways and along the edges of some fairways in low spots. The cold, wet towels provided were in addition to the dry towels that were also provided.

Do not drive to Marco Island as this course is one of two located in Fiddlers Creek, a gated community about 5 miles east of the Marco Island bridge.
