Excellent customer service

I selected “Saturday tee times” on the GolfNow website only to find out the actual tee time was reserved for the following Saturday...not user friendly on the Golfnow website...anyways the club was booked too the tee and the staff was above and beyond to make room for us to golf and fit us in somehow and we really appreciated the extra effort to accommodate us!

Really trying to please

Pretty course, with a tight layout between fairways that looked chaotic with many golfers, but somehow it all worked out. A bridge is under repair and management thanked you for your patience with a free drink. Come with a good attitude and you’ll like this course.

Friendly staff, well maintained course

Great clubhouse staff. Always friendly and helpful. Course is old style with small greens and tight fairways. Always in good condition. Bridge over Fox River is not safe for carts, but staff solved the problem, plus a free beverage. If you live near Burlington, play this course. Cheers

Areas of the course are in rough shape and the lay out of the holes were close together. The bridge was out, but not a problem. The staff was incredibly nice regarding it and had a very good work around which made it a non issue.

Bridge not able to be used! Way overbooked! Greens mostly burned

The fact that the Bridge is non usable and your have to carry your heavy bags across it twice is bad enough the boards that are loose and hazardous is another thing! Free drink tickets did not cover the inconvenience of moving bags and carts twice! Course was way overbooked! Over 5 hours to play 18!

Greens burned to a crisp! No Ranger to get pace of play going!

Staff that was there was nice but not going back!

Expensive on top of that!

Great value for your money

We teed off mid-day on a very hot weekday and the pace of play was excellent. The fairways and greens were in great shape! The course staff were very friendly and professional, the clubhouse food was delicious! We will definitely go back!

Charge for a cart

Made reservation through Golfnow. When I went to check in, the guy wanted $28 for cart. I told him it was paid in full through Golfnow. He lowered the cart fee to $20. I will not use Golfnow any more. Hidden fees are wrong!

This course was awesome

First time playing Browns Lake with my son and it was awesome . It was a challenge with the different slopes and hills you have to take in consideration . The staff was friendly. We had the first tee time and finished in 3.5 hours . My son and I can’t wait to play this course again. He was so excited that he told his brother to get a Shamrock foursome together . Great course to walk and get your steps in!!!!
