The course has a challenging layout. This was my first time here and I would like to play it again as I gained some insight on how to play certain holes. The golf course has some maintenance issues. While greens are well maintained, some fairways are wet (I think that it is a drainage problem) and the others are hard and dry. The staff are super friendly.
Played better for the same money
The course is fairly tight and is mature. We played better tracks for the same cost.(TPC Treviso Bay) Still worth playing
Nice mix of holes.....
Most holes have abundant fairways and several have elevated greens....water in play on several holes as well... nice mix keeps the course interesting....all in all, a nice mix of holes with greens that ran at about 10.0....course in great shape!
The course is friendly to the amateur golfer
The course offers wide landing areas for your tee shot if you play off the tee suited to your distance. Greens were very fast, but fun as a challenge.
Course could be in better shape. Great layout
Great track. Greens in good shape. Rough was poor and inconsistent. Fairways inconsistent
everything is just the way you would want your golf experience to be
Beautiful and nice to play but soggy
I would recommend this course to a friend but tell them to avoid it if there has recently been rainy days. A number of the holes are JUST beautiful to look at and play but one major problem was the grounds were WET! Walking in the fairway was an adventure. I wasn't sure if I was going to leave a shoe behind a number of times. In fairness ther has been a good bit of rain recently. Would love to play again when the conditions are dryer.
When researching golf courses in the Naples/SW Fla. region, The Rookery continually receives high praise and many writers rank it extremely high when compared to many of its fantastic regional peers. To start, the staff was great. Very friendly and accommodating. The course on the other hand was nothing special....at all. Being from Miami, I drive to SW FL often to play golf courses that are embedded in nature and not surrounded by high rises or housing communities. The Rookery is surrounded by homes on roughly 70% of it's 18 holes and beyond that, the course simply is not well groomed. The layout is mediocre at best, and the architecture is extremely boring. If you are looking for a decent course to play and The Rookery is conveniently located, then it will work out just fine. But if you are trying to decide what Naples or SW FL course to choose, I would not even keep The Rookery in your consciousness. You can't go wrong with TPC Treviso Bay or Old Corkscrew.
Great find in SE Naples - Fiddler's Creek
Generous fairways and all trouble is basically right in front of you; excellent layout and a challenge to all skill level players
Very good holiday experiences
Our first golf course played in Naples and if the rest are as good as this we will be very happy. The staff were excellent and made us welcome from the start. We both play off single figures and found it a very good test of golf. The fairways were generous and the greens fast and true. An uphill putt was a must. Overall a good course and one which I would have no hesitation in recommending to other golf ears
Very friendly staff and beautiful course.
The course was in great shape, especially considering the amount of rain the area has had recently. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Looking forward to going back in a couple of months.
Excellent features and fair layout
Nice landing areas with some holes where position on the fairway matters. Greens were receptive, true and quick but not blazing fast. Plenty of water hazards but have to be pretty wild to find many of them.
Great course with outstanding facilities for practice and other activities at the course. Very well maintained given the amount of rain here recently. All amenities are top notch.
Great to look at, muddy to play
First of let me say, this course has a really good layout and is a nice test from the tips.That said, here's the rest of the review: I'm really not sure why it wasn't cart path only the day I played. Very little of the fairway was firm. Very soggy and cart tracks all over reflected that. We were told to drive in the rough, which was a good start, but it wasn't enforced. The group ahead of us was all over the fairways and made a huge wreck most of the landing areas. Playing lift clean and place made it managable, however the greens were rather bumpy. For a resort course I expected a little more (seeing as the prime rates are extremely high.) Lastly, for a wildlife preserve area, there was little to no wildlife around. The views on the course were nice, but I think it's a little over priced for how it is maintained. On the plus side, the staff was very friendly and not pushy about pairing people together. The practice facility and clubhouse areas are immaculate. Great place to visit, even if you only go once.
Nice but wet!
Due to the amount of rain, the range was closed and the course was "cart path only." That added considerable time to the round but the course was fair and in good condition. Fairways were very soft with no roll at all. Greens rolled nicely but few long putts were made.
fast play in the summer!
Early morning, course still packed. But seemed everyone was aware of pace of play because it is a member driven course. Staff great, facilities great. Course in as good a shape as it can be with all the rain SW FL has gotten. One of our favorite courses to play in Naples.
Tremendous amenities and pristine views.
First time playing this course and it was wonderful even though it had rained continuously the night before. It was cart only and as a result slow but, the view and the course was worth it. The staff is sure friendly and the facilities are immaculate. I am definitely coming back.
A well thought out layout.
I enjoyed the design of the course, it was challenging enough with a good mix of risk and reward shots. The staff treated you very well I would highly recommend the course.
A Gem, Tip Top Shape
Anthony the Pro there is excellent, great customer service, treated us like gold. Great experience all around. We live in the area and will be back again and again. Loved It....
This course is a challenging but fair course.
The Rookery is a beautiful course with a challenging but fair layout. It is always in very good condition and the staff there is very friendly and helpful. Love playing there.
