First nine took 1 hour. Then we ran into the outing. Second nine took 3 hours. Not good. No warning that there was going to be an outing there when I made the reservation.

I am sorry you had a bad experience for pace of play. We always schedule our tee times based on 2 hours per nine and 4 hours for 18 holes. It is hard to predict a fast group that plays 9 holes in 1 hr. I appreciate your feedback and hope you will come play here again.

Brighton dale is a fantastic peblic facility. 45 holes and not a bad one in the bunch. We had played the Blue course since the monsoons of 6 to 8 weeks ago. That course sits a little higher and the lasting damage was alot less than on the White, which we played yesterday. There are areas that show the lasting effects of "storm of the century" type rain. Everything was playable and the greens and tees were the usual excellent quality. I never hesitate to play Brightondale, especially coupled with GolfNow Hot Deals.

I think overall it was a nice course, but they had some rain problems which had damaged few of the fairways which turned to get you off your aiming zones. I shot four over in the front nine before it gets very humid and hot

I was very disappointed with this course. We went because I saw they had good reviews on their site and on golf advisor. Totally not what I expected. We got pretty bad service. The gentleman at the desk was pretty rude when we asked what he meant by playing the "reds to the white". He also kept hanging up the phone on us as soon as he answered a question about the course and didn't give us any time to ask another question. The course was damaged by a recent storm and the turf looked and smelled terrible on some parts. Over all I must say that's it's the worse one we have ever played at. Definitely will never go back or recommend.

I am very disappointed to hear of your poor experience. Unfortunately there was some bad flooding and the course was not in normal playing conditions for you. We would love to have you back out to the course and see it in its normal playing conditions. If you have the time please call the golf shop and ask for a manager and so we can show you our true golf experience.

Nice course, played the other 18 last time, first time on the second 18. Front played OK, 2.25 hours for 9, could have been faster. Back 9 was unbelievably slow. 2.5 hours for 8 holes and quit. Didn't even finish. Lot's of ball marks on the greens, apparently the people who play there don't know how to repair the ball marks.

The course was in fair condition. But, we could not golf the white birch course that we paid for due to it being flooded. Wish we were notify of this cause it's a half hour drive for us three guys. We golfed the Blue Spruce out there all the time and it's boring.

The weather was beautiful and the course is in pretty good condition. The one complaint I have is the sand traps. What sand is in them is more like dirt and there are a number of traps that appear to be under construction and look like they have been for some time based on the weeds growing in the piles of dirt.

Other than that one minor issue (and that I spent too much time exploring said sand traps) The course was great and I plan to return again soon!

Weather was absolutely perfect.......low to mid 70's. Course in very good shape other than areas where some sand traps look like they are being removed.......holes with multiple traps. Greens all in very good shape. Fairways have reasonably good multiple cuts.

I played Brighton Dale Blue Spruce last year. It was a little more difficult than courses I'm used to playing, but I enjoyed it and the course was in excellent condition.

This year I saw a deal on the White Birch course, so I took it up. Again, quite challenging but not impossibly tough. The course wasn't in very good condition, however. Some fairways were very soggy, to the point where I was surprised they didn't tell us to keep the cart on the path, however I did get chastised once for parking the cart too close to the green (I was just following the tracks of obviously several other carts).

There was a lot of ground under repair, but I guess I shouldn't be too hard on it because it's April. Also I was disappointed the driving range was closed.

There was a large outing taking place on the Blue Spruce, so I understand that the staff was quite busy, but I felt like the two guys behind the counter at the clubhouse didn't even want to help me at all.

I saw the drink cart exactly 2 times during 18 holes. It was a nice day; 60 degrees and sunny, and I wanted to have a few beers.

I feel like I'm being a bit harsh on this course considering it's April, so I will say it's one of the nicer courses I've played for under $50.
