Didn’t really enjoy the course

First things first, the ladies in the pro shop were so incredibly warm and friendly and the welcome we received was second to none. The members we encountered we also of the same ilk.

I have to be honest, and despite the bad weather recently and the poor condition of the the saturated fairways and bobbly inconsistent greens, I just didn’t really like the course. There are too many holes that have blind shots and no fairway markers to help you plot your way around. I thought the first 5 or 6 holes were instantly forgettable with the back 9 being more enjoyable for me than the back 9.

I’d like to give it another shot in the summer but unfortunately would probably not return given the distance from home.

First Time at Brookdale-great course

We’ve spent the last 6 months playing different courses after relinquishing our membership at our home course. We’ve had some great fun doing this and Brookdale certainly added to this . A great variety of holes and challenges with some great par 3’s. Fairways and greens in great condition and friendly members. Now I know the course a little better I’m looking forward to a return visit. Great course.

Excellent first round here

Great course, with a real mix of layouts.
First time round this course and will be back.
Found the front 9 easier going than the back 9.
A hilly walk but great view into Manchester on one of the back holes.
Greens in great condition considering recent weather. Definitely worth a visit

Goog course with some challenging holes.

Considerng the amount of rain lately the course was in good condition. The greens were good. If you are an older player like myself you might want to consider hiring a buggy. There are a few inclines that may mean you might struggle. Depends on your fittness. Overall very enjoyable course to play. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Excellent course

I have played on this course 5 times now and I am never disappointed. The course layout is great, as are the greens. The staff are very friendly and are always willing to accommodate your needs. I have decided to purchase a 12 month membership and I am looking forward to playing this course several times a month.

Brookdale 17/07/19

Played with my Wife today who is a beginner , I've played here before some 17+ years ago and also previously been a member.
We had mixed conditions from warm to a bit windy and wet later in the round and back to calm and dry again by the end.
The course can be quite hard walking and quite punishing with offline shots , the condition of the course was excellent , Greens and Fairways were very good indeed and alot of drainage work has been done since I previously played there and the lower holes around the Medlock were much better than "Back in the day" as it were.
The Staff were friendly and helpful in the ProShop and Members we spoke to were courteous and polite although it was reasonably quiet.
As has been mentioned previously by other reviews , the layout can be somewhat confusing if you haven't played here before and could probably do with a little better signage although I'd suggest picking up the course layout leaflet which is next to the scorecards in the ProShop which will cure any problems there.
My wife being a new player did find a few holes really challenging especially the ones where it is required to have a reasonable carry over water but still really enjoyed it and said she'd like to go back when she's improved a bit more , she was especially pleased with herself when she birded the 7th Hole which is a lovely downhill 160yd Par 3.
I shot 84 with a bit of a mixed round but I'm still getting back into Golf again teaching my Wife to play.
The variety of holes here is fantastic from wide open drives to narrow tee shots requiring a fade or draw and some utterly lovely Par 3's.

Lovely course

I really like this course, the staff are always friendly and helpful and the course has a lot of interesting and deceptive holes,. Rolled quite a few long approaches onto the green from what I thought were bad shots. There are a lot of dog legs with trees so your club selection needs to be spot on to score well. I would recommend to anyone.

Tricky course

Played on a Monday afternoon with not a soul on the course.
The course is in fantastic condition especially the greens.
Not a long course but very tricky.... would suit the thinking golfer rather than the big hitters.
Quite hilly in places so wouldn’t suit anyone with a pacemaker .
Enjoyable afternoon of golf.

A course of great water features

The course is a very good challenge with lovely features, especially the river medlock running through the course. The greens and fairways are in great condition and the rough is only long in areas not to close to the fairway. The lower section of the course by the river has a good selection of holes, many playing over the river. Overall the best part of the course is the Par 3's with great elevation changes and shots over water.
