Very Loud Maintenance Machines Everywhere
Very loud tractors and blowers throughout the entire 14 holes I payed today. I stopped on hole 14, as it wasn't worth trying to play, with the loud distractions!. When voicing my concern to the young man at the desk he, said, "well we have to maintain it sometime". His manager came out and did not help or say a word. Very poor customer service! Therefore; the 1 rating!
One of the worst courses I've ever played
This course features a terrible routing which at times can be confusing where to go for the next hole. In addition, it has a cart with a GPS system which 90% of the time just warns you to avoid construction or to be near the cart path instead of showing you distance.
The course is well maintained, but has larger issues with poor pace of play, a teenage staff that doesn't care, and a routing that is terrible. If you're going to spend Carmel-type money on a course, there are plenty of better options. If you want a cheaper course that's nice, consider literally any of the munis in Indy, you'll have a better time.
Brookshire - best golf value in Carmel
This course has it all for a great price. The course is in great shape led by a dedicated Greenskeeper - Bob. It has a variety of holes and hazards so it is challenging as evidenced by the amount of golf balls to be found. Creeks run through out. Lots of wild life (deer, hawks) and protected habitats. A new club house and set of pools is being built. Hope they do not raise greens fees. Still affordable for retirees.
Fun layout with some challenging shots
Top line: Brookshire is a good municipal course with a lot of interesting holes
Overall Brookshire is a good course. Apparently it was a private course that since been bought by the City of Carmel. Most of the holes are interesting and require a decent amount of ‘shot making’, but there are a few holes on the front that are fairly straightforward. Conditions were just fine, clubhouse is a little underwhelming.
Bottom line: a fun track that I would recommend to play.
Glad they have made some improvements
Have played Brookshire numerous times, have always thought it needed manicured. Was glad to see they have taken down some trees to improve hole 7, and distances on the Golfcarts really helps. Fun course to play if your hitting it straight, and worth the trip . Condition was nice , course is always a challenge .
Professional and friendly staff, challenging layout, excellent pace of play,
GolfNow price! Fantastic!!
Course in Great Condition
When lots of courses are drying out, Brookshire is in great condition. Greens were soft yet fast and fairways lush. Would definitely recommend this Course for a good time.
Great local course
City owned course - lots of elevation - very pretty.
Great deal with discounted play
Had a nice round of golf on Saturday. The weather was perfect and the course was in really great shape. The starter that was at the 1st and 9 th tees could not have been any nicer and helpful. He was apologizing for the slow play, when in fact we finished 18 in less than 3 1/2 hours. So slow play wasn't a factor even though there are numerous places to lose and look for golf balls. Lots of tricky holes so I think my score should improve my next round there.
Not sure I would want to pay full price to play. Keep looking for specials.
This course may be for you, but it is not for me.
I am not a fan of how this course is designed. A lot of blind shots, a lot very odd tee boxes that allow for only a small view of the fairway, a lot of little things that added up to this course not being an enjoyable experience. If this course was in great shape I would recommend it, but as it stands, this course is not worth the price. Hole 17's green was so ate up that it was tempting to chip a 15 foot putt. Hole 18 was littered with balls from the driving range. These balls must not have been picked up all day, because at 5 o clock, there were 10 range balls on the green and dozens more surrounding it and on the fairway. All in all, if this course was managed better it becomes worth the money, but in no way is it worth what they are charing at the present time, and they are not charging much.
Pleasant Place to Play
I was getting off of work and my wife was out of town, so I was looking for a place to play around 6 p.m. and low and behold I found a course close to me.
Definitely wanting to play there again. They are in the process of making some improvements to the course that will make it a gem.
Definitely well maintained!
I will be back SOON.
As a resident of Carmel I enjoy playing the course!
Had not been there in over a year due to slow play
Went well and thought the course was in great shape for Aplril!
Longest round ever!
We had a tee time at 1:56, yet right before ours they let a threesome and another group of two on right in front of us. We weren't able to tee off until almost 2:30! The threesome was there to only drink and goof off and really held everyone up! Course was under a lot of renovations- new trees, new grass, redoing cart paths.. will be nice once finished but was inconvenient while playing. I'll definitely give the course another chance, but was really displeased with the pace of play.
Nice to see the course getting some renovation . The banks along the creek are getting a much needed upgrade. The trees along 6 and 8 creek have been removed should make more playable, however I can see long hitters hitting tee shots from 8 onto 7 now that the trees are gone. The next work that needs to done is brush areas at the bottom of 1 and next to the green on 13 would open up the course more. Thank you city of carme for keeping tee box on 15 and putting $ into the renovations.
Plays longer then it looks
This is a player course. Plays long due to lay-ups and doglegs, The greens are smooth and quick, fairways in good shape. The rough is not very long but the fairways are narrow.
Very poor condition. Not in normal golf shape.
This was my first time playing this course and it was recommended by a friend who hadn't played there in a few years. This course was in very poor shape. Very few select areas had normal grass, and so much of the course appeared to be in much need of major grass reseeding and reconstruction. We played ball in hand since there were too many shots that landed in areas with no grass in both fairways and rough. The course also had the most annoying golf carts controlled by GPS that would shut the cart off and force you to put the cart in reverse in random places on the course due to "detecting" that you were close to a green. The feature sounded cool, but was very frustrating in actuality.
Course was in horrible shape. Having played this course in the past I was amazed at the online price we found for the round. Once we got there we saw why. They were obviously having a hard time keeping grass alive. They were actively out spreading seed and trying to recover but it was a mess. We had to basically play improved lies the entire round to find grass to hit from. The layout is fun but with the current conditions I wouldn't have played there for free. I'm sure they'll recover in the off season, this course has always been in decent to great shape in the past.
