It was 28 degrees with no wind, the course is in fine shape. I just wish they'd improve the cart paths.

The heat has left the tees very hard. Had trouble getting tees in the ground, otherwise enough of a challenge for an intermediate golfer. Some blind shots on the back nine need some distance guidelines or you are in the water.

thanks to some older inconsiderate members we did not finish our round due to frustration created by the players in front, constantly (as a group) looking for balls, stopping to have group chit-chats and outright ignoring the fact that a twosome was waiting behind them at every tee. I have played here many times, but I don't know if I will go back again

Very pleasant round at Southbrook. Enough challenge to keep me interested, and the course was in nice shape. Several holes are pretty straight and parallel each other, some with tight fairways. There seems to be a clay base to the course. It had rained two days earlier and there were still a few puddles around, but nothing that hampered play. Might be on the soggy side the day after a good rain.

This course requires precise shot making. Too long or too short gets you in trouble in a hurry. It was a bit dry on the greens but otherwise in excellent condition. Putting was a bit slower than a week ago but this made it better as before it was too fast.

We played with another super friendly couple and thoroughly enjoyed the windy afternoon. This is a tough course requiring a lot of carefully placed shots. Lots of water to cross. The cafeteria is excellent. Very hilly itch lots of dogleg holes. Fairways are wide and well groomed as are the greens. Course was very dry so the ball runs a long way on the ground.

Good course but I was a little shocked at the condition of the fairways, that they were not groomed properly as there was dandelions all over the fairway and grass cutting that weren't picked up

Great value for the price. Rough was thick and balls were lost just slightly off the fairway. Pace of play was very slow, course was filled.
