Fall golf Wisconsin

Keep it straight no problem, hit iunder trees and you’ll have to hunt in the leaves for the ball, played no penalty for that to speed up play, greens were in surprisingly good shape but played 2 putt maxx rule anyway to challenge for going for greens in 2 and being aggressive in putts. Fun round for WI November golf..

A Little Shaggy

Browns lake is a nice little course. I think with the recent rains, the grounds crew had problems mowing. Fairways greens and tee boxes we're on the shaggy side. slowest greens at played on all year. all in all it's a fun course to play however holes are very close together and you must be aware of errant tee shots and approaches. I've only played this course once before a couple of years ago and the conditions were better then. once again the recent rains are probably to blame.

Forgiving course

Well. I played my best round of golf that day. Started off the back 9 and shot a 3 over. And shot a 1 over on the front for a 76!!!! Not bad for only being the fourth year golfing

Browns Lake is one my favorite places to golf because the course is laid out so well and the staff is always very nice. Plus it’s very professional yet very comfortable to golf there.

This Course Sneaks up on you !

The course appears simple with some short par fours and few bunkers, but narrow fairways, challenging greens and changes in elevations still make it challenging.

It always seems I should be scoring better, but holes 7 and 16 are my Kryptonite.

The course is undergoing many changes and enhancements and is look better everyday. The changes don't effect play except some older trees have had to be remove so actually sometimes it helps! Looking forward to watching the course continue to improve.

I play on A weekly basis and it's alway fun, and different.

Awesome!

This was my first time playing this course and it will not be my last. I enjoyed everything about it, the course to the excellent customer service. I loved the layout of the course. Some long par 3's and back to back par 5's were nice. Great job Brown's Lake, can't wait to play it again.

Great shorter course some holes are close to returning fairways.

I have played this course before but they have lost a lot of the ash trees that separated the fairways.. The stump holes have been filled and seeded. The missing trees have opened the course up.

It's a great afternoon play I had a good time.

Browns Lake April 2018

With the weather finally turning nice it was a lot of fun getting on Browns Lake. I like the way the course has both challenging short and long holes. I have no complaints about the course other than the greens have not matured, but that is to be expected with all the cold weather we've had in WI. The staff are very customer focused and I found the pace of play was good...took just under 4 hours to complete 18.

Windy weather

Aerated greens

Greens were recently aerated. We didn't know. Would have been a deal breaker with one of our foursome but the rest of know that can happen in fall golf and we got a really cheap rate. Windy and some very hard ground in some spots gave big drives but landing approach short of greens sometimes gave huge bounces that carried over the green.
