Rookery Park Golf Club is one of the finest golf clubs in Suffolk. It has a top quality 18 hole golf course as well as a testing and beautifully manicured 9 hole Par 3 course. The club has access to first rate practice facilities and has a large and friendly membership.

Range at Rookery Park Golf ClubGary Kitley is the PGA Club Professional at Rookery Park Golf Club, ably assisted by his team of Ed Garrard and Guy Mummery. The team's goal is to help everyone enjoy their time at Rookery Park. This means that you will always be greeted with a cheery smile and a helpful manner. We will help you enjoy your game more by assisting you to play to your potential with the correctly fitted and customised equipment from our well laid out Pro-Shop. Through our coaching academy we will try and get the best from your game with lessons on short game and putting or on the full swing on our 15 bay driving range.
We will always try and keep our coaching as easy to understand as possible so that we can work at a pace that keeps our pupils comfortable.

We particularly enjoy introducing new golfers to the game through our Get Into Golf Programme and Academy Membership.

The objectives of the Academy are to provide:

Professional coaching facilities for adults that are new to golf or those wishing to return to the game returning after a period away.
A basic understanding of the Rules of Golf and course etiquette.
A means for participants to meet other would-be golfers and to use the clubhouse facilities as Temporary Members.

Academy membership is a structured introduction to golf providing beginners or improvers with professional coaching facilities which will enable a player, on completion of at least the silver level and having satisfied the Professional that they have reached the necessary standard to apply to join the Club as a Member.

For those new to golf, they will join at the Silver level. Players with previous golfing experience, but no handicap will be invited to join at Gold level following an assessment by a member of the Professional staff.

If a pupil fails to achieve the qualifying standard within their five month period, it is recommended that they arrange further lessons with the teaching Professional.

Subject to achieving the above and the Professional being satisfied that the pupil has the understanding of course management and etiquette, the pupil can then play a trial round of the 18 hole course and will be invited to apply for full Golf Club membership.

For those not yet wanting to commit to a membership we are actively involved in the Get-Into-Golf campaign run by the Suffolk Golf Partnership.

It doesn't matter whether you've never played golf or if you haven't picked up a club since your school days or an almost-forgotten holiday. You can get started by taking advantage of the hundreds of free and low cost golf taster sessions and beginner courses on offer from us.

You'll receive a basic introduction to golf from PGA professionals, together with information about club membership and follow-on coaching opportunities.

Equipment will be provided so all you have to do is turn up on the day in comfortable clothing.

Golf's winning combination of exercise, sporting skill and social interaction make it the perfect tonic for good health and happiness.

If you are looking for an individual lesson or series of lessons then we should have a package to suit you.
