Experience the best in Okoboji
27 holes of golfing pleasure awaits your experience at a wonderful piece of ground made just for golf. Majestic trees, rolling green fairways, lots of wildlife, strategic placed bunkers create a few thought provoking shots to avoid trouble.
John is the pro, I believe, who has a good staff, makes the check in and cart loading easy. Course fairways and greens make Brooks the best experience of all the courses in the area.
Go play, see for yourself, enjoy Brooks GC, you won't be disappointed!
Brooks Exceeded our expectation
From the moment we got checked in by John, to our range time, to actually playing our 4-some experienced a great day on Brooks Golf course. Go play this course, you will not be disappointed.
Nice course but few amenities
We enjoyed the course. It was average difficulty - just enough to challenge beginners.
Staff was very friendly and helpful!
Only real negative we found was that there was no drinking water at intervals on the course. As hot as it was (93+), cold water would’ve been much appreciated!
Other than a hot day in the 90’s, the breeze kept it bearable! The course was in great shape, with the greens very true. Mowing and watering we’re going on as we played, but it did not hinder our play. Fairways were just mowed, and the rough was playable. We liked the yellow and blue nines, but enjoyed the challenges offered on the white nine. Overall, great day, and we finished in just over three hours! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good challenge!
Course is in great shape
Even though the past winter was harsh... this course was in great shape! It is certainly not an easy course with almost ever tee box having you drive over many hazzards... this made it tough for an average golfer. It was missing water jugs, port o potties and little to no on course beverage service which was not good. The bar inside also did not have a working beer tap and credit card machine which was strange. Overall a great course with a few areas for improvement.
Love it but slow
This is a great course. Nice blending of old a new holes. Guy in the clubhouse was not very friendly or helpful. Beverage cart lady was awesome! Biggest disappointment was pace of play. Took over 4 and 1/2 hours to play 18. Had a rowdy noisy couple of groups ahead of us that didn’t seem to care how slow they were.
HAD A WONDERFUL TIME GOLFING WITH FRIENDS FROM IOWA.
A good deal
We got a terrific deal on golfnow.com. With a "Hot Deal", we saved a huge amount over the regular price. This is a very nice course with 27 holes. We played the Blue course (all parkland style) and the White (3 holes parkland plus 6 holes links style). It was late September, but the day was sunny with the temp in the low 70's. Even though it was quite windy, it was a comfortable, enjoyable day. The course was in excellent condition, with bent grass fairways. The only complaint I have is on hole #4 on the White 9. You have to hit your second shot over a swamp filled with grass so tall you can't see the green. Carts come with GPS, so that helps. I imagine if I played #4 enough I would like it more. All in all, however, it was a fun day.
Holiday treat at Brooks
Even though it was Memorial Day weekend and they had an event there we played the 9 without the event and had a great day golf on the Blue course at Brooks National. Check in was great, carts are new, course was wet from over 1 inch of rain but not to wet to affect play or riding around. 1 in our party had not played the course, she found it very playable and wants to play it again. Highly recommend playing this course whenever you get the opportunity.
I have played this course often since moving in the area. It is a very well maintained course, the best in the area. It a resort course and a little pricy in season but in off season it's a good deal. I would recommend it to anyone in the area. It has 3, 9 hole tracts and they all are a good bit different, one heavy tree lined, one links style, my favorite, and one combo of both.
Course was in great shape and this was after several days of heavy rain and it held up well. The greens rolled true and the course offers many challenges. It's not the longest course even from the back tees, but still offers a great run with 27 holes to select from. My issue with most courses and it was an issue here also, ball marks not being repaired in the green. And especially after the rain. Overall great course and will play here again when we return.
Great price great course
Great price offered course greens and fairways in great shape. Would recommend to all golfers to go out and play soon.
