Brute at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa
Grand Geneva Resort & Spa was ranked in the top 10 northern U.S. golf resorts by Conde Nast Traveler. The resort boasts two championship courses, the Brute and the Highlands. The formidable Brute Course stretches to over 7,000 yards. It is considered one of the toughest golf courses in the Midwest. The layout wanders across rolling terrain, incorporating a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. There are 68 bunkers strategically placed along the massive, undulating greens. The course is aptly named since it will relentlessly test your skills. It is more challenging than the Highlands, which is a links course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye. In addition to the two courses, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa also has a practice facility complete with a driving range and putting and chipping greens.

One of the best around
Beautiful course well maintained. Golfed it years ago and they continue to make it better every year.
1/2 hr drive
Took day off of work. 69 degree day , course was in amazing shape. Staff was great , well worth vacation day.
If you can do Monday-Thursday it is well worth the money. Way better than any other local golf course.
Looking forward to next vacation day ......
You’ve earned it!
There are 2 courses here. We played The Brute. What an interesting, challenging and visually beautiful course. If you work hard and take care of your family etc etc.....and deserve an occasional treat for yourself T it up here.
Great course when you find a good deal.
Played the brute today. Course is cool with its huge greens and huge bunkers. Stuff you are not used to seeing. Staff is very friendly and inviting, and driving range is very nice also. Tee to green course was a in very good shape they have taken out some trees on some holes especially #2 which has made things a little better more golfer friendly. Greens were slow and a little fuzzy. The highlands seem to be fast all the time and the brute always seem to be slow, doesnt make much sense. Wish they kept them the same. The sand is too soft as always and they have really raised their prices on bev cart (buy at the bar its cheaper). Course is very nice but for the regular price save your money way better courses to play for a better price.
The Brute is a modern classic design
The Brute is carved into the rolling woodlands of southern Wisconsin. The 1968 Robert Bruce Harris design is a big-hitter's course, with some forced carries, tough fairways to hit, and plenty of woods to avoid. Elevation changes make for lots of fun, though. Greens can be large, but often very firm and elevated and difficult to stick close to the pins. Do not start to count up your score until you hole out on 18, as the last two holes are maybe the toughest on the course. Great practice facilities and excellent staff and pro shop.
Rain was not going to stop me
I made a morning tee time with the weather man being dead wrong again. Rain and cold drizzle hampered the day but not my spirits on enjoying my round. The golf course was wet and slow with several balls plugging and no role from fairways hit...so it played long.
The course was fair, challenging and enjoyable to play at every turn. I would go back with a fall deal but can't afford the peek season.
The only negative was the number of reminders to fix divots, ball marks and staying on cart paths the GPS gave. I was frustrated by the number of times I had to touch the GPS screen to get things going again.
It would have been nice to know they aerated the greens. We would have played a different course and waited to play this one another time.
busy and wait
too much slow play but ranger did not care of that.
I took 5 hours for 17 hols (skip 10 hols) .
Great course with fun elevation and challenging holes. Greens somewhat slow and Huge! Staff is great . Fun day.
Grand Geneva Golf
This time I played the Brute. I have played the highland and I enjoy both courses. The Brute is a bit more challenging. The course was in excellent condition like aways and the staff are all very helpful. I'm looking forward to the next time I can enjoy a round of golf at The Grand Geneva.
I highly recommend the Brute. The facilities are top notch, and the course is outstanding. it is challenging but not punishing. Anyone who love to play golf will the the Brute. The pace of play is very good as well. A+
Beautiful shape, big greens long. Beautiful course,
Played white tees long but challenge ing, great views, beautiful elevation changes,
Want to come back as soon as we can. Very well maintained and laid out. Lots of elevation changes and twists and turns. Many bunkers which were very large and guarded most every approach shot. Greens were very large and rolled well with breaks that were hard to read . Course was tough but rewarded good shots and penalized bad shots. Great day of golf
An Eagle & a Birdie
Course was in great shape with very well manicured greens and landscape. Beverage cart was very attentive and had everything you could need out on the course. The greens were challenging giving up very little to miscues or reads. Greens were soft and rolling about an 8 to 9.
Scored an eagle on 6 and birdied 9. I would play this course again
Unbelievable views from elevated tees. Beautiful lakes. Excellent greens
First time in Wisconsin. A gem. I can see why this course gets the ratings it does. Excellent in every way. Golfers....get to the Brute.
By far the nicest golf course in the Lake Geneva Area. The views are breathtaking and the course is meticulous.
5 minutes from home.
I would like to thank Grand Geneva for a wonder round on the Brute course. The course has everything. Giant Greens as big as a house. Bunkers that make any beach jealous. Fair ways R Plush. Disappointed in that my 4 some repaired tons of ball marks on the greens, & put back quite a few fairway divots. Don't people have respect for such a great course. And all the cracked tees on tee boxes. Staff was great. Loved the GPS on the carts. No course should be over $100.00 to play. I found a daily special rate. & thank U for doing that. Im not rich. Every hole is a painting of its self.
Greens a little slow but otherwise in great shape and very challenging.
