Played with several family members as we were RVing at the State park. This was a 3 1/2 - 4 hour round as there were definitely some people on the course for the holidays plus with the recent rains the front 9 was cart path only slowing down the pace of play on the front.
The course was generally in good shape and even with the recent rains the greens were fast and in great shape. This two 9s of this course are really different with completely different challenges, The front 9 is a tree lined course with some wetland areas adjacent to the fairways. The back nine almost has a links feel as it is extremely open, dryer with large natural waste areas between the fairways. The two nines are and play so different. The bunkering was also completely different. As the back nine is dryer the pace of play was much faster.
I really enjoyed my round of golf at this course and will play there again.
I like this course
First time playing this course. I liked it, especially the wide open back nine. Will definitely go back there!
Super fun and cool course. Literally get to play two courses. Staff was great. Track was in great shape. Very gettable and enjoyable. If you don’t like this place you need to hang up the sticks.
Great Course !!
Great course, the front 9 and back 9 are completely different courses. Front 9 is in the trees with rolling hills and the back 9 is wide open links style course.
It’s a must play if you get the opportunity!
Course was in good shape for this time of year. Only issue we had was at the range as there were no balls in the machine. Not a big deal but you would expect that would have been one of first things checked before the course opened. First tee times aren’t until 8:00 am.
The front nine was nice to play, the back nine was not pleasant at all, the greens are terrible and almost not playable! Should have played the front twice.
Pace of play was very slow
Needs some attention
The greens on the back nine were terrible, if we could have played the front 9 twice it would have been fine! Needs a lot of work to be called a golf course! Slow play on the back nine, not sure why it is not maintained better.
Love the nature ride thru to the back!
Front nine some what tight, hills, trees, and ravine.
Back nine 1 mile from club house awesome boardwalk then wide open, like a different course.
Very cool and fun.
This is a fun amalgam of two courses. The front nine is a woodlands course with a number of interesting dog legs. One interesting point is that the red and gold tees play virtually the same length. This is something they may want to correct. The greens are fairly flat and true. After the front nine there is a one mile cart ride through wetlands to a links style course. The greens on this nine have some foreign grass invading that needs to be sorted out. There we a number of interesting holes on this 9as well. All in all an enjoyable round.
Spectacular course layout
Brazell's Creek is a real gem. It's true the front and back may as well be on different planets. I preferred the front; although hole 17 on the back is quite memorable. The course is in a state park and the local "gubmint" lackey running the register had very poor customer service skills. Most putting greens are infested with weed growth and turf disease; but they are otherwise trimmed. Despite those minor negatives; I'd highly recommend this stunning layout. It's a great golf experience.
