Broadlands Golf Club in North Prairie is one of the most popular public golf courses in the Milwaukee area and also one of southeastern Wisconsin's best values. With a wide-open, virtually treeless landscape, the course has a traditional links design. It offers plenty of challenges but it is also not overly difficult for high handicappers. Water comes into play on a few holes, mostly on the front nine. Emphasis is placed on proper club selection, especially for the finishing hole, a downhill par 3 with bunkers and native grasses framing the two-tiered green. It is an especially tough hole on a windy day. The golf course is versatile and accommodates a wide range of skill levels. Its playability has made it a popular host for amateur tournaments and outings. Broadlands Golf Club also has a driving range for golfers to use.

Always a fun course

When visiting Wisconsin, I always try to get a round in at Broadlands. For the amount of play it gets, always in good condition and fun, fair and interesting layout. Keep it in the fairway and you’re in for a good round. Miss and your scrambling. Highly recommend

Good value, fun course, good people

This is the third time I've played Broadlands and the third time I've come away impressed at how many things they do well.
The personnel is always polite and efficient There was a junior golfers class going on when we arrived. Being a lifelong golfer, I appreciate the effort to bring new players into the game.
The course itself is a good layout, it's well maintained and challenging enough for seasoned golfers but not overwhelming for new golfers. Play keeps moving.
The starter was engaged and did a great job of keeping things moving. The little things aren't ignored either. The driving range isn't fancy, but the hitting area is well maintained and the practice green isn't an afterthought. It's representative of what's on the course and big enough to accommodate a heavy schedule of golfers.
It's clean, the pro shop is nice and well stocked.
It caters to golfers, not snob value types...The Pub is nice, with decent prices. Both women and children are welcome and respected.
Just a well run course, all around and the tee boxes are set up so any golfer can find the set best suited to them.

Great golf coarse!
Second cut it high, stopping your ball on a dime.
Rough is VERY high, easy to loose your ball.

Go to course

This is my "go to" course whenever when they post a Hot deal rate. Always kept in shape. Marshals keep the pace of play. The carts have winshield.so I can use during inclement weather. No GPS on carts but almost all avid golfers have some kind of GPS or range finders.

Nice variety in great shape

We are half way through the golf season in Wisconsin and the Broadlands is in great shape for the lack of rain we have seen in the area.
Looking forward to playing again before the season ends.

Great course, constantly over-scheduled

This course is relatively close to my home and I've played it quite a few times over the course of many years. It's a very well maintained course and is reasonably priced. The staff has always been friendly and almost everything about this course is nice. The problem I have, and the reason I rarely golf there, is that they consistently overschedule tee times -- making pace of play horrific.

As an example, I had a 3:24pm team time. It was a Saturday with very nice weather, so it's expectedly busy. However, my twosome didn't tee off until almost 3:40pm. A bad sign to start. Thankfully, all of the golfers ahead of us tried to keep up their pace and were very thoughtful about not searching too long for balls, getting off the greens quickly. Nevertheless, we waited on every tee for the group ahead to tee off. This was in no way their fault because they were waiting for the group ahead of them, etc. Even with this, it took just under 2.5 hours to play 9 which is pretty slow but somewhat expected for a nice weekend..

When we made the turn, things went from slow to unplayable. We waited at least 15 minutes on every tee. Ultimately, we only got in 4 holes of the back 9 before giving up. To play 14 holes, it took over 4 hours. There was a good chance we wouldn't complete before sunset (8:30pm) despite starting 5 hours before sunset. When we gave up, there were 3 groups backed up on one tee (a par 4 which preceeded a par 5, so no excuse). Looking at the tees ahead of us, there were 3 groups on each hole there as well. This is after watching at least 2 different groups give up before us and head back to the clubhouse. It's just not possible to maintain any kind of tempo when you have to wait for 2 foursomes to tee off before you can even step on the tee.

Again, from what I saw, every group ahead was playing ready-golf. This was not one slow group holding everyone up, it was complete overscheduling. The same thing happened the last time I played this course (which was last year) and it's why I haven't played it in a year despite golfing almost weekly. Doing the math, you can see the problem -- if we assume the average 4 some will take 12-15 minutes per hole (standard pace of play), and they are scheduling tee times every 6 minutes, that would require that there over 2-2.5 groups on every hole. There is no way to fit over 2 groups on a par 4 and ANY slowness by ANY group would make it impossible.

To repeat, everything about this course is nice except the scheduling, which ends up overshadowing everything else, which is unfortunate. I would gladly pay $10-20 more per round if they spaced out the tee times by 2-4 more minutes.
