Broadlands Golf Club in North Prairie is one of the most popular public golf courses in the Milwaukee area and also one of southeastern Wisconsin's best values. With a wide-open, virtually treeless landscape, the course has a traditional links design. It offers plenty of challenges but it is also not overly difficult for high handicappers. Water comes into play on a few holes, mostly on the front nine. Emphasis is placed on proper club selection, especially for the finishing hole, a downhill par 3 with bunkers and native grasses framing the two-tiered green. It is an especially tough hole on a windy day. The golf course is versatile and accommodates a wide range of skill levels. Its playability has made it a popular host for amateur tournaments and outings. Broadlands Golf Club also has a driving range for golfers to use.

Fun But Tough

Broadlands is really well designed course that features something to please everyone. The course is exposed to the winds throughout and can especially be felt from several elevated tee boxes. The front nine features numerous hazards while the holes on the back nine are surrounded by natural areas that can make it difficult to find golf balls hit out of the intended playing corridors. The course ends on a demanding par 3 which is a cool twist when compared to the majority of golf courses. The winds help keep Broadlands dry even when it rains so you can get a lot of rollout in the fairway while greens can be firm and resist holding approach shots. Broadlands is definitely one of the better public options in the greater Milwaukee area and I always enjoy playing there even if my scores aren't that great.

Great value for the money!

Broadlands is one of the best public courses in the area. You would think this is a private club by the entrance, the bag drop and the clubhouse. The staff is great as well. The course was in great shape except some of the tee boxes were a bit chewed up. Other than that ,great! The pace of play was a bit slow, but not terrible, the weather was great, and a lot of people were playing, so that's understandable. Nice wide, well kept fairways. great layout. I would have to think No. 16 is the signature hole on this course. Have played here often in the past, and will continue to do so.

Good and Not as Good

The Broadlands is a terrific layout. Every experience there has been enjoyable. Today’s round, with two other players, was trending the same way. Then we reached the back nine, only to find ourselves playing behind a sixsome—yes, six players. They were apparently playing a three team best ball. The sixsome never considered waving us through. They seemed more intent on bumping their carts into other carts, etc.

We played the front nine in 1:35. The back nine took 2:15. We played the final four holes in the rain, waiting on every hole.

How were six players allowed to play together? Was there no one who could marshall play?

This experience will cause me to carefully consider playing The Broadlands again—a course I greatly enjoy—anytime soon.

Pace of play issues last two times out

We started off with an 8-10 minute delay due to the fact that it probably takes way too long to pay for your tee time in the pro shop,
And then there wasn’t really a ranger moving things along to try and pick up the pace of play. That didn’t happen so it took 5 hours to play 18 in 88* weather. The American Flags on the pins was a nice touch and the course played well.

Broadlands review

Broadlands is my favorite local corse. Some challenging holes but an average golfer hitting well can get some pars and even a birdie or two. I’m a long hitting but accuracy can be off. When hitting well I can get 81-83 and if I’m off it is more like 85-92. I like that my score reflects how I’m playing versus other courses it doesn’t seem to matter. I like that the holes have some elevation and some turns and some water, just enough. Greens are well kept, above average. Pace of play is better than some places but can be slow at times... could be better. Also, be careful not to pick even a slightly windy day. It always seems to be a little to a LOT windy. I pick only nice days to play!

Slow

Broadbands is always a well kept course with good to great breaks and fairways. Using GolfNow you can find time to play this course and it doesn’t break the bank. Yesterday was one of those time where I could take my son out for twilight golf. Tee time was made so that we had four hours to play before sunset, we were ten minutes late to go off the first tee, and before us a twosome went off and then a three some, at the last moment we were pared with a single. Seems that three groups could have been made into two groups pretty easily. Unfortunately we were not able to finish our round.
