Brown's Run Country Club in Middletown offers a championship layout that stretches to just over 6,830 yards. The team of William and Brian Gordon, brothers who have designed more than 85 golf courses all over the U.S., designed Brown's Run in 1958. It has a classic layout that is gentle enough for beginners, but it is an enjoyable round no matter what skill level. There are a few strategically placed sand traps throughout the golf course, which make up for the absence of water. The design is pretty straightforward although there are a few slight doglegs to watch out for. In addition to the challenging but playable design, the course boasts some of the finest fairways and greens in the area. Brown's Run also offers other amenities including an Olympic-size pool and four lighted tennis courts.

Excellent layout

I really enjoyed the course layout it’s a really fun place to play. Many of the fairways were in really good shape for the fall. All the greens were excellent. However some of the fairways were a little burnt out. Although it looks like they’re trying to improve the course so that’s a plus.

Great lay out. The course in late summer condition, even though first week of October.
Tee boxes aerated, but overall, would definitely play again.

With Covid, would be not be fair to judge off-course amenities.

Get what you pay for

Tees were awful - fairways were suspect - greens were good - greens may be the only thing they are watering

Lots of brown grass

Played this course several times before, it is a good layout. The greens were slightly above average, but the tees were nearly dead and many brown stressed areas in fairways. If we had known these conditions existed we never would have played here. Not worth $40 in this condition.

Nice Layout - Overpriced

Love the layout and walker friendly. Greens are good but course is in rough shape. $55 is asking a lot in this condition. Also, they charge the same whether waking or riding, which makes no sense to me.

Will be a GEM, again!

Fairways, tees, and some rough is burnt-out but course is still beautiful. Give yourself a break and play with lie improvement. Greens were fantastic in comparison. Can't wait for this classic to get back to what it should be. They're working hard out there to fix it!

Quick and relaxing

Very few players at the time that I played. Course in good condition considering no rain in a month or so. Greens are tricky but enjoyable.
