Good for the price

The rookery is an average course with a decent price. It doesn't have the greatest conditions, but it's perfect if you just want to get a round in without breaking the bank.

One of the aspects of the Rookery that i could count on was that it was always in great shape. That hasnt been the case recently. Greens and fairways in bad shape but to the credit of the pro shop they have reduced the fees. I would wait til end of september to play there if you can. As far... More

Played there 4th week in August. Never played there before. We checked in and were only charged half price because they had just aerated the greens. Turns out the whole course (except for the sand traps) was in terrible condition. Maybe it was because of the overly hot summer? The only good thing about the course was chatting with the... More

Very flat course which have been struggling with keeping in in good shape. People really don't fix divots probably because some of the greens are missing the grass. Since there are not too many courses in the area you can go and spend some time there.

I guess i am spoiled by living in the Myrtle Beach area when it comes to golf courses. this was the only 18 hole course nearby. The greens were slow and rough. The course did not have a beverage cart out. The rough was "rough". Very nice staff and a great "box lunch" deal for us seniors. Would i go... More

Yes, it's fairly wide open off the tee, but don't miss a fairway or you may not find the ball. I don't have an issue with that from a playing standpoint, but the issue becomes pace of play as folks search endlessly for balls only a foot off the fairway--over and over again. The fairways are well conditioned and the... More

My husband is a member of the Rookery. He loves it! Friendly staff and great course. We enjoy taking our family out on Friday nights to the happy hour (6pm-9pm) @ North Course, with dinner specials and a band.

We booked this over a week and a half ago to play on Friday (11/27/15) 8:00 AM tee time. Admittingly we are not pro golfers. About the seventh hole, some older man from the Management tells us that we had to move it faster. After a brief exchange of opinions, he leaves not to return again. Out of kindness, we... More

With my three brothers, we ran a Captain's Choice round because bro #1 had shoulder surgery in early September, and frankly we other three stink. But we kept pace with the other groups and had a great time in a glorious fall day. This course has some water but is eminently playable for duffers. We'll maintained fairways and greens! The...
