Good Value

Good first experience. Not much course info provided so bring a range finder. Some holes are very short but a good mixture overall. You can score well on this course if you are having a good day.

Good value for a beach resort course

I was in Lewes for a week, during which I played The Rookery three times. I played several other courses as well, which led me to conclude that The Rookery is the best value option for this area. Other courses are significantly more expensive without offering much more in terms of challenge level or course quality. The Rookery isn't a world-class track but it's a good, fair layout that will test your game without pushing your limits. It's mostly a flat track but wind, rough, and hazards offer sufficient challenges. Conditions were good when I visited in early September, and pace of play was reasonable. I enjoyed all three rounds I played there and would recommend this course to friends without hesitation.
