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!!!!

Good day to golf

Had a good time. Course was in good shape. Wasn’t happy that GolfNow wouldn’t allow me to take the 20% discount that they advertise.

Browns Lake Golf Course

During COVID-19, the staff had everyone ready for play on their tee sheet while booking online. With all the rain that happened lately, the course was in surprisingly good shape. However, pace of play is NOT enforced and they were letting sometimes 3 carts out per hole without policing the new policies. For the money, it is absolutely a good value. Just beware, it could be a long day and very slow round.

We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Browns Lake Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Bang for your $$$

It’s like having a fishing hole that you don’t want your buddies to know about...
Each hole gets better and better!
Small fast greens...
I’ll be back!

Always have loved the course, staff, and views. In this hot 2020 summer, nothing like a 6am tee time with some friends and beer!

Fun track for guys that hit the long ball

Decent track for your entry level players . Wide open on most holes. Just super over priced. Greens were real consist but pretty slow.

Staff is doing a great job.

Despite all the restrictions the manager still came out to ask about pace of play at the turn. He noticed a group was going a little slow. He made sure it was ok with us which I really appreciate. Not many courses do that!

Other courses should learn how to take care of their greens as good as the team does here.

Club House

This was the first time I folded here.... Only downside is I was looking forward to getting a bite to eat after the ninth hole, and was told they shut down the grills. It was only 3:30 in the afternoon and people were on the course. Other than that I enjoyed the course.

Cool Bridge!

Really nice course. Some rough spots on fairways but in overall great condition especially considering the amount of rain the past few weeks. Alot of nice open holes but a few tight ones to keep you honest. Bridge on 3 (I believe) is very neat! Like a mini golden gate spanning the mighty fox river. Great staff, good food, and a very good value. Definitely recommended.
