There are two things you must know about BCC right off the bat. First of all this course is private. In the past 2 years I've played here 4 times all of which were through a connection. Secondly it is hard for me to be unbiased in this review considering I grew up with this course in my backyard and always viewed it as an example of the perfect golf course (even without playing it). The first 9 holes retain many of the design features of the original layout created by Alexander Findlay in 1929. The greens are well guarded and incredibly subtle and while many of the tee shots on the front are straightforward a few, namely 3 and 4, demand precision and benefit from the ability to shape a shot. In early 2000s the course underwent a renovation that mostly focused on drainage and the rerouting of the back 9. While the back 9 starts with a short, quirky downhill par 3 to a severely sloped green the updated design is apparent on the courses most picturesque hole, the par 4 11th. The rest of the back 9 plays out similarly, the subtle slanted greens and hilly terrain remain (Burlington is built into the side of a hill. The green on 18 is probably the highest point with the tee box on 16 being the low point) while the updating of that 9 is apparent in the curvature of fairways and narrowing of certain landing areas. Back across Burrs road on the same side as the first 9 is Burlington's most famous (or infamous) hole the par 4 18th. Players must either hit a shot no more than 220 from the back tees or turn over a slight draw if they want to bite off a bit more. From there players must hit a blind approach to a severely ( and I mean severely) elevated green. Once on the green the real fun begins as the green's apparent contours are almost impossible to truly read thanks to its position on the hill. Members and locals will tell you to look at the foundation of the club house, which is about 10 feet off the right side of the green, to aid in reading your putt. Again my love affair with this course slants my review but if you enjoy classic layouts and you have an in over at Burlington get out there and enjoy this wonderful track.

Old time Alex Findlay course. Tees were close to the greens, so it would be very easy to walk this flat course.<br/> Conditions were lush and the greens very quick.
