The Rookery

Intersection of RT 1 and RT 16 Milton, DE Set between swelling mounds to the west and a heron rookery to the east lies a new championship 18-hole layout offering a wonderful playing experience for golfers of all abilities. 1999 PGA Senior Club Pro Champ Pete Oakley and course visionary and superintendent Chris Adkins have teamed up in designing a water laden, golfer friendly challenge just off the picturesque Broadkill River. Outstanding golf is found at The Rookery just 9 miles north of Rehoboth Beach area. In 2002 The Rookery received the News Journal Reader’s Choice award for “The Best Course at the Beach.” A course that is fun and rewarding but still challenges the most accomplished players. The Blue Heron Grill will satisfy any hunger and the practice facility will prepare you for the Rookery’s 12 water holes.
