My friend John and I played the Rookery on 03/14/11. The conditions were cool and windy, with spotty sunshine. The course is very much links style, particularly on the front 9. The back 9 has a different flavor and we agreed that we liked it a little better. Carts were electric and well maintained. The course was in decent shape considering the time of year and seems well groomed. All in all it was a positive experience, even if we didn't score well. *If I did have to note one thing, it would be that the employees all seemed as though they'd just received a big shot of thorazine. They were accomodating and courteous, but just seemed zombie like. It was odd....

A nice OPEN course. I've been playing terribly lately and not looking for a challenge - I chose wisely. They had many people on staff to attend to clubs and carts and such which was unexpected and impressive. The course itself was in very good shape. It's not easy to find a good value course in a vacation area but all things considered $69 for the round is too much.

Good value for twilight play. Nice course with holes that make you think before hitting.

While spending a long weekend at the Delaware Shore, my golfing buddy and I played The Rookery in Milton, DE. This course is wide open with generous fairways and greens, not many trees, a few holes with forced carries over water, very similar to a links course without the fescue grass everywhere.

Very nice course, wide open and flat. Very good course for a mid to high handicap golfer with lots of room to spray shots and bail out areas.

This course is very open, so you can spray the ball to an extent. Sometimes water prevents that, though. The course is very flat, but there is enough variety to keep the course entertaining. It is maintained well enough to be worth a moderate price. The value is solid. It is a great course to play on your way to the beach for a warm up round.

Friendly staff. Course is consistantly in good shape. A very enjoyable course for the mere mortals among us. #3 can be a real ego-builder at times.

Consistently a decent place to place...staff is nice.....greens are big and hold up well to play. Played front 9 in just over 1 thats golf.

A grip it and rip it course

I played this course once. For myself, the course was not difficult and it to put me to sleep. It seemed as though you were playing the same holes over and over again. It's wide open with minimal trees and there is no elevation changes at all. If your into that, this course is for you. I did shoot one of my best rounds ever here.
