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.

I got a grade tee time on a beautiful summer-like day. the course had some winter kill over the last 5 months therefore the fairways were not at its best. however they have a wonderful crew and I'm confident they will be able to get it back to Prime condition. the greens were a little slow perhaps not been cut yet. I was paired with a delightful older couple and we had fun on the course. We played behind a foursome and they were courteous and played quickly. the bunkers were in great shape. I look forward to playing there again. If you haven't played this course it's a must. challenging from the blue tees but fair from the whites.

Broadlands is on the verge of Country Club in conditions and layout. The often have very reasonable rates if you are willing to shop. The day we played was in the upper 30's and even colder with brisk winds but it was worth the good deal for maybe the last local round of the season.

I've been playing Broadlands for about 30 years. it has a great layout and is always in excellent shape. However, the last few times playing it, I've encountered slower than usual greens. I understand when it's wet, it makes it difficult to keep them fast. however lately it's been very dry with no excuses for slow greens. it's a course that you must play if in the area.

Greens were rather on the slow side and the course was backed up - waiting on every hole.

Singles and threesomes should be aware that they will pair you up with a stranger in your cart. This can lead to an uncomfortable round in some situations.

I've played this course several times and every time it took us over 5 hrs to play our 18 holes. I've seen marshalls on the course in the past, but not this time. One time this year we went well over 5 hours and we were only on the 15th hole when we gave up and quit. I like the course lay out and keep retrying it in hope of it having a better pace of play, but as of last time that hasn't happened yet. For the money their asking to play here the pace of play should be controlled better. Went in after playing 9 holes and no one in side to let us buy a snack before the next 9 too.

Course was in good condition and was fair. Good shots were rewarded and the fescue was penalizing. Greens were nice and putts rolled true.?Overall, not that hard of a course but it was nice and enjoyed the course layout.

We liked it so much we played it again a few days later instead of trying a new course. Great value!

I've played here many times. Very decent golf course, fun layout and conditions are pretty good. And for $25, a real value. But their pace of play is consistently poor, especially on weekends. I think I found out why.

I booked the round as single. I arrived about 50 minutes before my tee time. As I was checking in, I asked the guy inside--who seems to always be grumpy--if there was a possibility that I could start early. "Absolutely not" I was told. I replied, "booked solid, huh?" He said they were.

Didn't feel like hitting balls so I went to work on the short game. The putting green is within sight of the first tee. They have a starter. But I certainly didn't see people lined up waiting to tee off----like usual. So after about 10 of not seeing anyone tee off, or even look like anyone was ready to go, I went and asked the starter if I could go. Same answer. No way. So I went back to putting. Watched a two some tee off and leave. Then I watched another two some tee off and leave. Another two some pulled up to the tee. So I went over to the starter and asked about why all these two somes were teeing off while at the very least, I could have joined one of them? He sort of seemed kind of puzzled but then said, "Ok, you can join that two some." So I went up and introduced myself, but they seemed like they wanted to play alone. So I asked them if they'd rather play by themselves and they said they would prefer to do that. So I said, "do you mind if I tee off, catch the two some in front and play with them?" They said no problem. So I tee off, pop one down the middle and off I go. I'm on the first green, and here comes the marshal. "Please sir, we don't like singles out here playing because people start complaining about pace of play." I informed them they have a pace of play problem because they let two somes tee off when they should be paired up as a group of four. And that they could have paired me up with another two some instead of having this cluster on the first tee. The starter---a good starter--- could easily do this and make this much better. Other than pace of play, I give the course above average marks.

PLayed this course on Saturday at noon. Our twosome (both golfers are around 7 handicaps) were paired with two first time golfers. While the course was challenging and in great condition we were constantly looking for balls and trying to keep up with the group ahead. Not a course for a first time golfer. Greens were great as were the fairways, traps as most in this area were hard. Definitely would like another shot at it with a more experienced group.

Played at noon on Saturday, only negative was my twosome was paired with a couple of beginner golfers. Course was in great conditions, fairways and greens were incredible, traps sort of average after some rain. This is not an easy course from the back tees, lots of forced carries and some fairly long par 3 holes as well. Great value via golfnow.com. I would definitely play here again.
