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.
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.
Great course shocking round
Amazing course, though quite short the holes are a challenge with a few blind holes, and some beautiful but hard par 3. Would love to play again
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.
where am I going !!
A really stunning course with some very challenging holes. All the par threes are well protected and potential card wreckers. Water comes into play on a fair few holes. It's nice that there are a range of length to the par fours with some true monsters and some risk reward holes where the right line in is key over distance.
The first hole is a brutal hole requiring the ability to shape the ball up and around a large oak tree the the middle of the fairway !! the only flat lie is to be on the right side of fairway , go left and you face a second shot with the ball two feet above you !!
The final three holes are a real treat with 16 a short par 4 with trouble all around, 17 a superb par three that requires two extra clubs to find the green safely . Then you have 18 a short par four which needs a solid fade around the slight dog leg, again a drive of 210 yards leaves a wedge to a severely elevated green, club up.
I would say the stumbling weak point and it's easy to fix is the lack of signs telling you where the next hole is . I ended up on the tenth after the first hole and on a couple of occasions got lost.
Will be playing again, as a top course !!
Course is always well maintained, greens are good. Layout of the course gives plenty of variety and some challenging holes. Staff are lovely and great value for money in Club house
Good picturesque course to play with challenging greens. Some Fairways were boggy in places due to rain earlier in the day. Back 9 is hilly though.
Really enjoyed our visit to the course. Great layout and each hole is different. Beautiful location.
Played Brookdale yesterday and although some parts can be ruff on the legs due to the hills it is one of the most beautiful courses I've played. Nice wide fairways on moat holes and in lovely condition. The views from the course make the round even more special. Met some members when we first arrived and they more more then happy to advise us on the course layout and hazards. Will definitely be playing again.
Well worth playing
Course was in good condition, it's a good layout with some great holes , very enjoyable
I will come to play again in the summer I think the course are much more challenging in the summer when the tee move back to it's position .
Round played October
Played the course at the end of October and was pleasantly surprised at the course conditions, fairways were good and greens true although they had been hollolined this did not spoil the round. First 9 holes were good enjoyed the elevated 7th par 3 very nice hole. Back nine holes were superb really enjoyed some of the long par 4 holes and the par 3 holes are very nice. Handicap 16 scored 36 points 19 coming in.
Played at Brookdale gc for the first time yesterday, the weather was great so we were looking forward to an enjoyable day. we weren`t disappointed! Although the course was quite tight,it was in excellent condition. some of the holes were challenging especially for my standard of golf, but a thoroughly enjoyable outing. An interesting course layout at times, great greens and well kept fairways. Only downside for me was it is quite hilly!! Would definitely play there again and would recommend it to anyone!
Enjoyed my game today and I met a playing partner. The course itself was great but a bit all over the place. The club needs to signpost each tee off as I found it very difficult to know where they were. Other than that great course, value for money and I'm looking forward to playing their again.
