Bang for your buck!

Minebrook is a surprising delight. The course conditions are amazing for a public course, except for a few greens that are spotty. There is a good variety of holes and the course has an overall great length. Fairways are relatively wide and forgiving. For the price with a cart you can’t really beat it. Especially if you get a hot deal or play after 4pm! This has become a home course for me and can’t wait to play next week! The cart girls and staff are super friendly too!

HOT AS HECK !!

Me and 3 OTHER IDIOTS were the only ones out there playing in the 95 degree , 150% humidity weather , lol !! That made for a round of THREE HOURS which got me to work ON TIME amazingly -I'd told my boss I'd DEFINITELY be late so he was SHOCKED TO SEE ME ! Greens were RATTY IN SPOTS but rolled true . Fairways were in good shape but the tee boxes WERE LIKE CEMENT AS USUAL !! Seems like no matter WHAT time of the year I play there they're ALWAYS like that . They should HAND OUT HAMMERS in the Pro Shop to drive your tee into the ground with ! Still had a good time though and WILL RETURN !

Poor course conditions

90% of the tee boxes had no grass, it was just dirt, filled with a season's worth of broken tees. There were no distinguishable fairways, and the greens were in terrible condition.

Challenging course

Tee boxes are hard as rock. Can’t put the tee in the ground without a hammer. Grass fungus on the first 5 holes. Some greens are terrible where you can’t even putt.

Enjoyable Round

Overall an enjoyable round . First series of holes are close to one another which makes it challenging in terms of errant balls and disruption from neighboring foursomes. Course opens up on back nine and has some nice views and interesting holes. Greens are in variable condition so purists might be annoyed but they OK overall . While not in lush pristine condition the overall course played well and had interesting layouts. Starter and staff were welcoming. I would come back as the round was fun and worth a visit

Stop being cheap!

The course has so much potential! Every time I come here it’s more disappointing than the last time. Greens are in HORRIBLE shape. Tee Boxes are HORRIBLE. Service and personnel are 5 Star. Put some money into refinishing the greens and tee boxes/sand traps you will have a quality course you can actually charge a decent fee for. Do not spend more than $50 on a tee time on this course. Didn’t offer Blue tee boxes and charged $50.

Needs a lot off work

Tee boxes torn up. Greens very poor. Lots of dirt patches. Need some major upkeep. Guys I played with are in weekly league and said 100% improvement over last year. Still a long way to go.

Greens and tee boxes in poor shape

Played here on 6/7/20. Outside Staff were very friendly. The starter, Frank, had carts lined up ready to go and even put our bags onto the cart. Course was crowded but we tee off on time and got the round in in about 4:15 minutes. That’s the good part. I wish I could say the condition of the course was as good as the the rest of the place, but I can’t. There were numerous tee boxes that were in very poor condition (more dirt than grass). A few of the greens also were in bad shape. I’ve noticed that most golf courses are in their best condition ever due to the lack of play early on because of the pandemic, but sadly Minebrook isn’t one of them.

Bad Greens/Tee Boxes

I probably wouldn't play this course again, unless a major overhaul happened to the greens and tee boxes. The greens were in awful shape, couldn't get a nice roll, burned out, some holes I was putting through dirt. The tee boxes had no grass in them, just tee'd off of dirt. A couple of the holes were soaked in the center of the fairway, so as you drive to it, there is a possibility of getting stuck in the cart. I will say, I did like the layout of the course, if proper drainage and greens care took place here, it would be a very nice course to play. They just need to invest some money.

Combat golf

Prepare to hear fore yelled often and frequently. Constantly ducking for cover. Holes are on top of each other and the greens are poorly maintained. Not a good course.
