Hammock Bay and The Rookery

The Rookery at Marco, a naturally beautiful habitat for a challenging game designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy of Jacobsen and Hardy Golf Course Design, is a haven for bald eagles, alligators, and blue herons. It offers 18 challenging holes with 7,100 yards of lush fairways and immaculate paspalum turfgrass, all nestled in shallow wetlands with receptive greens and unforgiving sand traps.


Designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy, is a par 72 Audubon gold-certified sanctuary championship golf course with 18 individual and distinct holes. The live oak tree lined fairways, rolling terrain, and Gulf of Mexico breezes all combine to make Hammock Bay a challenge that our repeat visitors enjoy. The contours, shape and orientation of the course greens were designed with the approach shot in mind. Hammock Bay is now open following the completion of a $4.8 million turfgrass replacement project. The redesigned course features PlatinumTE paspalum turfgrass, creating more vibrant playability and overall golf experience.
