Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017 Rookwood Golf Course serves as the number one public only pay and play course in the area. Operated by the same organisation as Slinfold Golf and Country Club, this parkland course offers a par 72, 18 hole challenge to any standard of golfer.
As you play, you’re presented with a nice mix of challenging holes with strategically placed bunkers, water hazards and lakes, making it a course where course management and past experience can come in handy.
The course also boasts a half way hut serving delights such as bacon and sausage baps, not forgetting hot and cold refreshments. You can even order as you tee off on the 7th and collect your food as you walk to the 10th.
Green keepers work hard to ensure the manicured fairways and greens are kept in top condition allowing for year round golf. This makes it the local golfers’ first choice in the area during the winter months; Sussex Golf has held their Christmas Charity Golf Day here for the past three years.
Do you need a venue for a charity or society golf day? Rookwood Golf Course is the perfect venue. Mark and his highly experienced staff will take all of your requirements into consideration, taking the pain away from organising every element yourself. The course is already the preferred location for a number of local societies so don’t hesitate to obtain a quote online for parties of eight or more golfers.
Other services this venue has to offer include:
- Pro shop
- Pull trolley and buggy hire
- Changing rooms
- Putting green
- Bar and café
Rookwood doesn’t offer a membership programme, however, they have recently introduced season passes allowing you unlimited mid week or full 7-day access, from as little as £2.35 per day for mid week only, and from £2.90 per day for unlimited 7-day golf. Great for those who don’t want the commitment of full golf club memberships (season passes start from a minimum duration of 6 months), or be restricted to accessing the course because of club roll ups or competitions.
