Absolutely my favorite

I have to admit that I don’t often provide an across the board top rating to any enterprise but Brookside is definitely deserving of praise. From checking to departure everything was superb...the people, the course the maintenance and the cost. I love this place and wish it were closer to my home but it is worth the one-hour drive to enjoy.

Best Greens on the South Shore

I keep coming back to The Brookside Club because they have the best greens of any public course on the South Shore. To me the green condition is the most important aspect of a great course.

Awful Pace

Three hours to play nine holes on a weekday afternoon as a walking single. First time in 30 years I've ever walked off in the middle of a round. (Which, thanks to the layout not looping back to the clubhouse, necessitated a 15-minute jaunt on Route 28 to get back to my car.)

It's in great shape. Scenic, hilly, and challenging. The almost complete lack of directional signage, however, is absurd. As a walker playing there for the first time, multiple times, I wasn't sure I was on the right hole or where I was going. What modern course doesn't even have all the hole numbers marked on the tees?

A shame. Was really looking forward to playing here, but with all the great courses in the area at equal or better prices, I won't be back.

Awful Pace

After it took three hours to play the front nine as a single in the middle of a weekday, I walked off. (Which, thanks to the layout, necessitated a 15-minute hike along Route 28 to get back to the clubhouse.) Absolutely absurd.

Place is in great shape. Challenging. Scenic. Hilly, but not overly so. Essentially no signage directing you, however. Absurd that tee boxes can't all be marked with what hole they're for, especially in a layout that winds through homes and other holes. As a first timer, frequently was unsure where I was going.

With all the wonderful courses in the area, I won't be back. Cape Cod Country Club puts this place to shame at three-quarters the price.

Always fun

We play this course at least once a year and always have a great time. Brookside is always in great condition throughout the course. There are a couple of “tricked up” holes that sometimes play unfair and there are several blind shots mostly on the front nine. This layout relies on elevation changes and subtle hills throughout the course to make up for the short yardage. It’s the first course you hit when you cross over the Cape Cod canal and it should be on your itinerary for a buddies trip to this area.

Pleasantly Suprised

Course was way better than I expected. Got a hot deal on golf now paid a very reasonable price for peak hours 18 with a cart. So wasn’t expecting much. Course was immaculate. Greens were extremely fast so had to make that adjustment without being able to practice. Fresh ocean breeze and smell in the background. Nice atmosphere and curb appeal overall. Pace of play went slow because a few members in front of us were taking their time. Very member dominated so be aware. Built in a condo settlement so the course winds through the backyards of high end development. But very nice and the layout was overall challenging. High undulating and sloping narrow fairways, many blind shots and small greens that drop off on all sides add to the difficulty. Many hazards also add to the challenge the course provides. Forces you to have to plan where you want to put the ball on most holes And plan your approach. Loved the course overall. Facilities look nice but closed for obvious reasons. Highly recommend for golf lovers.
