Great course for the Money

I play this course a few times a year. Has a nice mixture of easy and hard holes. I don't think it's irrigated but it drains well. It has some architectural problems, a couple of holes where it's easy to have golfers from other fairways hit into you, and blind shots off the tee. Course currently in good shape, Greens roll true. Next tee is usually near previous green, so it's walkable. a Solid course at a great price

Great course for the price

Challenging course with white tees 1000 yards longer than yellow. Started out playing white tees and switched to yellow when the distances started to get much longer. White tees would require very strong drives and long iron shots to get on in regulation. Some of the fairways are quite close together. Tee times are also close together which impacted pace of play as I was constantly waiting for the group ahead of me to tee of and finish the hole. proximity of fairways led to other groups constantly being around you. I prefer courses where the holes are more isolated and you aren't as close to other groups but would definitely go back if I can't get a tee time at my preferred course.

Nice time! A+

Brown’s Lake Golf Course has always been one of my favorite courses. It isn’t the most prestigious and it doesn’t possess the quality grounds that other courses may have, but it is pleasant, groomed well for the price, and the experience is always very nice. Love the holes by the river.

Great course and staff! Great value!!

Loved playing here. Everyone is super nice. Fairways and greens are in excellent shape. Very well maintained. If you get off into rough outside of first couple cuts, the ground is a little hard. A few tee boxes are close to previous greens making wayward approaches a little anxious. But will definitely go back and play here again!!

Good course

Jeff and his staff are all very accommodating, helpful, polite and concerned about your golf experience. Seems the price bumped up this year but not unfairly compared to others.
