Really good, fun course. This and Hammock Bay are the home courses at the JW Marriott on Marco. Conditions were really good despite 1" of rain before we feed off. Greens roll fairly quick and very true. My only real issue is the 18th hole doesn't visually fit the rest of the course, but it is a really good hole, and #9 plays shorter by going down #1 fairway, which is a bad design flaw and a safety issue. These are minor issues as the course is really solid, and I Definitely would play here again.
Really nice course
This and the Rookery are the JW Marriott courses at Marco island. Hammock Bay is a really solid layout. No bad holes, but nothing really super-challenging. It is resort golf, so it looks intimidating at times, but plays easier than appears. Good variety of green complexes. Great condition of greens, fairways, and bunkers. Par 5's provide great birdie opportunities, par 4's are good with some challenging tee shots. Perfect course to relax and enjoy a round of fun golf!
You have to have your A game to score well at the Rook!
Stray shots will result in frequent “rinsing”...!
Course staff and conditions are always first rate.
Good course but pricey
I thought this course was in great shape. Fairways were plush and greens rolled true and were quick. The layout was excellent and challenging. Played from the middle tees as it was first time playing course. Could have probably moved back a set. However for the price this was not the best value in the Naples/Marco Island area. Played at Tiburon the following day for much cheaper and better conditions and atmosphere. If you’re willing to spend the money this certainly is a great course but I feel there are better values out there.
Great course if it's not busy
5 hour round. Waited on every hole.
The reason is that the property is owned by the marriott . When they have large conferences at the hotel you have groups that take up the entire morning and back up the course. If you can get a tee time on a day that isn't super busy you will have fun.
The course layout was good and fun. the condition was nice. The best part was the chilled hand towels at the turn. I would play there again, but I would make sure it was early or on a day that wasn't busy with bus loads of conference goers.
A great course and a fantastic lay-out. Super fairways and fast greens. Challenging with water, bunkers, doglegs etc. Fantastic to play and we’ll play this course more often.
Hammock Bay: "I'll be back"
Hammock Bay is another great gem of a course in the Marco/Naples area. The course is always in super conditions, the staff is friendly and very accommodating to your needs. The facilities are real good and the 19th hole's Steak sandwich, MMM.
Pace of play was good for a Saturday morning, Greens rolled really good, sometimes too good. Just a good course to play more than once a season. I will try to return more often.
Marco Islands Finest
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.
Tons of character. Hard great course
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
one of the best in the area
We did not play too well, but that definitely was not because of the course. Overall rating well deserved 5 stars!
Great golf course, fabulous staff!
Hammock Bay was in excellent condition even though there has been a lot of daily, heavy, rain. The staff is both very friendly and helpful. The course itself is very scenic with the back nine even more lovely.
Hammock bay gc
Very nice course lay out is fair for all types of golfers
This Course is n great shape
Price unbeatable for single. Nice practice faciitiy. Course in excellent shape for Summer heat...
Great birthday present!
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
Staff was great and full of information
This course is one of the best in Naples. Perfect condition, great Par 3's and an uphill par 5...wow! Loved it!
THe highest of quality
I have played here once before many years prior and I can tell you the quality of the all around experience was the highest. The course is 100% and the staff welcoming. I was informed that the greens were plugged and sanded about 2 weeks prior and you never had known. This is simply a great course and I give it the highest of recommendations. Will be going back at first chance.
Very Nice Course
The Rookery is a very nice course, different tees so all players can be very comfortable. Really enjoyed my round.
played over seventy courses in Collier county, this course is solidly in my top ten.
