Despite us showing up 35 minutes early they would not let us go off because we booked through this site and they said we had to wait for our tee off time . Well nobody teed off but two members who had already played the back nine and were now teeing off in front of us 3 minutes before our scheduled time. Well we played the front nine and obviously there was no one in front of us and when we get to the back nine in is jammed with people they had been putting out the back nine because they were going to have a tournament starting on the front. We confirmed with both groups waiting that the front desk told them to go out The same person at the front desk that would not let us start early again confirming that it was because we booked through this site said these people where lying that he only sent out one threesome. Can't really figure how they all got power carts. They only care about money not your golf experience We will never go gack

Arrived early, greeted by friendly owner who said we could go out earlier than our t-time. Fairways thick and well maintained as was the rest of the course. Beautiful environmental area around stream, and fescue was cut back, maybe since it was fall. Easy to walk and push cart, only one hole offered a hill on the front nine. Course played fair, and the lack of drama created by elevated greens, tight winding fairways, and hazards on every hole made it user friendly for me, a first timer at this facility. Still, it was challenging and required accuracy off the tee to avoid problems. The two bunkers I encountered were more like waste areas, and the sand was very hard. Easy to get out!

Course in good shape, greens firm and nice speed. When we checked in, noted a men's league and 4 groups of ladies were ahead of us delaying our tee time. When I commented, the response was "that's what you get when you book with Golfnow". This was not appreciated. Had a nice breakfast sandwich and played the front in over 3 hours. The groups in front of us only played 9 holes so back 9 was a better pace. Would check for leagues/tournies before I play here again.

Great course but probably due to all the rain this year the course is a little rough. Little shaggy in the fairways. Still a great course if you don't like the crowds

This particular day was a one off as the course was so wet? We walked 18 holes and every hole was soaked; however, have played it a couple of times prior to this date and it was beautiful. Will definitely go back as I am sure there was just a lot of rain before we played.

I like fast greens and they roll really nicely at Ash Brook.

A lot of risk reward shots.

A gettable course with some tough par 3's and easy par 5's.

The layout is great for members, leagues, and tournaments because of lots of spots around the course to socialize.

Good course, good service, and really great value.

Firstly the guy in the proshop was down right rude. Apparently the time I booked using a 3rd party online sight only gave me and my buddy the right to play and that he would "tell me when I could go out" and would not honor the 8:04am tee time since apparently that was the first tee time and there were already plenty of members there ready to go out before us. Please get this straightened out!

However two great members allowed us to join up with them and we had a very enjoyable time. This is an easy course, rated 69.1 par 72 thanks to several short par 5s. Even though I brought my "C" game we had a great time with the members.

This is a good course for locals. It provides an affordable 18 hole 6,000+ yard experience. It is also a very easy walk.

There is another course near by that is worth the extra money IMHO so you get what you pay for.

I always walk an 18 at Ash Brook when I am in town and will continue to do so even with my poor proshop experience.

Hopefully you will get matched up with some of their members. They all seem like great folk.
