Great Value

Had a great round at Mt. Brighton with my son. Had played here once before and decided to come back on a GolfNow deal. Glad we did. This course is extremely intriguing with it built on and around a ski mountain. There are some really nice views on the front 9, where you are hitting some tee shots way downhill. Number 9 is an awesome par 3! Pace was good and the ranger was very friendly. Staff inside was friendly. I'd say the only disappointment was that the grill was not open for lunch, as they were getting ready for a wedding. All and all, a great round!

Nice elevation.

The nice part of this course is the change in elevation. It feels like you’re playing a course up north. The conditions were good the course was in great shape.

fun to play

The first four holes are extremely hard and the back nine plays better than the frt not as tight- some holes are gimmicky

Nice course.

Had three inches of rain night before and course was soaked. If you are first time player this is a very difficult course but it gives all players different ways to play the holes. First hole is very nice with a view of Brighton from above. This is a great course for $20 but not so great for $30 or above weekdays for seniors.

Don't be fooled by picture on Golf Now

The picture they have posted on Golf Now is no where representative of the actual course conditions. The picture lead me to believe that the course warranted the $50 asking price. The bunkers on the entire course had hard brown sand in them with weeds growing in the bunkers. The grass was slightly stressed but manicured. I get that part of the novelty of the course is playing through the ski slopes on the front 9, but in the conditions of this course, it's only worth $35 tops with all of the other nicer courses in the area charging that or slightly more or less. I definitely won't be getting burned here again.

Narrow and creeks require solid irons!

This course is incredible. Played on Memorial Weekend Sunday. Had a 30 minute tee off delay. Not many holes for big bomber drivers and you have to be on your iron game and ball striking to avoid the many creek hazards and OB markers that come into frequent play. This was a tough course and I played in high school and golf regularly. For an 80s handicap golfer, this will challenge you. Yard markers could be bigger for visual pick up. Even maybe add yardage markers to certain blind tee shots.
