I really think this course could have been a great course back-in-the-day. The layout is fairly easy but fun to play. The bunkers are average and the greens were a bit slow when I played the course in mid-July.

The "Brooks" within the heart of the course were holding little to no water when I went which was disappointing because it could have been beautiful when the water levels are high.

Tee boxes are decent and the fairways are well groomed.

First time at the Brook in a long time. Greens were just airated and were rough to play. Fairways were like playing on pavement. I'll try again after it rains a bit.

I could not tell the difference between the fairway and rough. A lot of rough spots. Greens slow, we got behind a foursome that would not let us play through that had cut in front of us while we where making the turn. We wound up quitting after a couple of holes on the back because we were tired of waiting and the course was not in great shape.

Probably was a nice course in it's day, but that day was 20 years ago. Fairways are in really rough condition. Dead trees everywhere. Grass not well mowed. Pro shop in worse shape that a farmer's shed. Not worth the price to play or your time.

Course layout is pretty straightforward, not exceptional. Greens had been aerated, lots of ant hills. Also, some fairways were plagued by swampy areas which was odd since we hadn't had a ton of rain lately. I will play again and would recommend at a deal rate.

The Brook is a fun experience because in order to play 18 you have to play twice and playing the same holes twice I think gives you a chance to make up for mistakes you learned on the front. Good course long drive out though which kind of makes it hard to play.

Played The Brook in the early fall after a dry spell and the fairways were in rough shape and hard as rock. Difficult to hit from. Most holes feature wide fairways between lines of pine tree, which became rather boring. Except for a few holes that featured water the course was not particulary challenging. Greens were decent and the staff was cordial. Price was reasonable, but rate this course near the bottom of those I've played this summer. Certainly not up to Cherry Blossom or Old Silo standards.

Fairways and greens are good shape... enough to make it a decent play. It has some really nice holes and requires some shot making. Keep it in the fairway and low scores are probable but enough trees around the course to create high #'s as it is difficult to get out of them as they are bunched together. Water also comes in play throughout the course.

It's immediately clear that their resources are spent on the course and not equipment or buildings. But the greens were top notch; the fairways well groomed with plenty of deviations. The water hazards add sufficient challenges without being over-done. The rough is ..... well, don't go there!<br/> All in all, a great course!
