Played early spring. Course was in very so so shape. Sand traps were full of weeds and water.
Looks like no spring time Maintenance has been done.

Great Value, Follow the Rules

This is an excellent place to golf, especially if you can hit it straight off the tee. Watch out for holes with thick woods and consider a 3 wood if your driver isn't straight. One negative is an employee who was playing behind us (~45 y/o man) took upon himself to scold me and my partner like schoolchildren for driving the carts to close to tee boxes and greens. Admittedly we shouldn't have been that close, but as newer golfers, a gentle reminder would have been appreciated instead of threatening to have us kicked out. People like him give golf a bad reputation.

Who Is At Fault

Unfortunatlly we played as a 4 some. Unfdortuntilly the golf shop sent out 2 aomes, 3 somes and singlels behind us. All of which wanted to platy through. We let 2 groups do so. in doing so we were looking at a 5 1/2 to 6 hour round. Someone complained and a ranger came out and said we were holding groups up and the course was open ahead of us. Really? the course was wide ahead of us when we started. At the time the ranger approached us telling us we were holding up play we were on a 4 1/2 hour pace. I ask you, who was at fault. If you are going to run your course in this fashion, possibly you do not need our play!

Blue Spruce Course

Adequate challenge for an average golfer. Greens were lower than I like but were true. Some work needs to be complete with the bunkers - difficult if not impossible go play a and shot. Overall good experience.

Great value.

For a county course, both 18 hole courses are challenging, always in good shape and the pace of play is generally good. Finished in 4 hours as a threesome and let one twosome play through. For the money these are both a great value compared to many other options.

Nice course gone downhill

I wrote a review praising this course earlier this year. I've played there twice since the flood and the fairways are now in terrible shape. I don't know if that has to do with the flooding, but I hope it improves next year or I will not be willing to pay regular price to golf here.

Also there was a group of 6 allowed to play in front of us. Their pace was surprisingly good but we still had to wait for them on several holes. I didn't think groups of 6 were allowed.

Tough course

This is the third time I've played the Blue Spruce. The other two times I felt the course conditions were excellent, but this time I was quite disappointed. The fairways were very patchy. It is possible that this was the result of the flooding this summer.
I always enjoy seeing the wildlife on this course. During our round two pairs of cranes were honking at each other from different fairways.

Nice Parkland Courses

Had not ventured out to the Brighton Dale facilities in several years but it was a welcome return. Well run by the Kenosha County Parks the facility has 45 holes of golf to be enjoyed. It was like visiting an old friend....enjoyable parkland golf with some pine forests, water and tight tree lined driving holes to keep your attention. Brighton Dale experienced some flooding issues with all the rains this season but we found the Blue Spruce Course to be very playable and in decent shape. If does suffer from some sameness as many green sites seem to have a trap in front in play that's not maintained and all of the sand traps are dirt and hard pan. Fairways do have some minor brown out issues but grasses are of proper length. Greens were okay I'd call them decent with good speed but some greens have ball mark issues as well as a tad of bump/wandering to them....but still very enjoyable to play on. Tee boxes grasses are very sponge like and several are not level so you have to pay attention to where you tee your ball up. Very buggy so bring some spray.

Decent dated large clubhouse with awesome brats and New Glarus Spotted Cow....it's Wisconsin! Discovered they do have a locker room with showers in the lower level. Range mats only and good sized practice putting/chipping green. Both the 18 hole courses are worth a play and it's a shame the Red Pine nine holer is not part of one of the 18's....in my opinion the very best nine of the complex with some nice elevation changes/doglegs and challenge.

Brighton Dale is a very good value...if you look around on the net they have play all day specials, reduced rates, etc....and next time maybe I'll just have to play all 45. It's that pleasant. $25-$30 value....3.25 stars overall and could get closer to a 4 if they paid any attention at all to the sand traps.

Cold and Wet For July

Best deal was $19 with fees $24 @6:45am on GOLFNOW. If there are no deals except paying between $30-50 bucks. The temperature was 60-65 degrees very chilly and misty. This summer has been the wettest ever and Kenosha has been hit hard. The course had water damage on the fairways but none on the greens. The greens were in good condition, a lot of ball marks. I don't understand why some golfers don't fix ball marks? I fixed at least 4 per hole. No one was in front or behind us. Played 18 with my buddy w/cart and took us less than 3hrs. Like playing this course blue(18), white(18), and red (9). I recommend this course to anyone that plays.
