We got stock behind a group of 3 and they got stuck behind a group of 4 so there was a lot of waiting around. Overall nice course. The greens had no break in them and were extremely slow so that was frustrating.

Nice course design that would hold you interest for multiple rounds. Course was in nice shape with very nice though slightly slow greens.

4 stars for pace of play because we were very fast through front nine and ran into people on the back moving a bit slower. Still completed round in less than 4.5.hours.

At regular rates this is an interesting moderately challenging course that is fun to play. Recommended.

Great course tucked away in the middle of nowhere. Did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised to find the course a little challenging, in great shape and fun to play. The staff and regulars on the course were very friendly. I have heard their Friday fish dinner and 9 hole combo is awesome and will be checking that out soon. Definitely going back.

This course, is not my cup of tea, but it may be yours. Too many dog legs, on the front. I liked the back side better. Over all - the course conditions were so-so. Again, not bad, for a Hot Deal.

Gear shift: When I arrived, there was a young lady working the bar and check in counter. She was mixing a drink and said she'd be with me in a moment. When she was finished, she asked what she could do for me, and I told her my name and tee time. Her response, "Don't tell me, Golf Now?" I said, "yes." Her reply, "I hate Golf Now!" "They never inform us when they've booked a tee time." Well, I find that hard to believe, since I'm immediately notified, once I book. I'd think the course is too.

I booked as a single, but expected to play with 3 others, as seen when I booked. However, she gave me a cart, and said, "Go when you're ready." So, I did, and while waiting for a pair ahead of me to tee off, another gentleman drove up in a cart. He got the same 1:07 hot deal as me. We played together, as a twosome, with 2 carts. Fast round for us, but not too profitable for Willow Brook. Clearly, this young lady needs some training.

Rough is pretty thick, lost a lot of balls. Tee boxes require a claw hammer to set tee's. Some of the staff may require a new pair of glasses. Otherwise a decent day out. Personally prefer their other course.

First time playing this course and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Course is a fairly tight fit through a nicely wooded area. Greens are well maintained, but a bit slower than I'm used to, and played nicely. I will play here again.

This course is a great deal for the money, It is owned by the same owners who own Hawk Meadows but this course seems to be the favorite course of the owner and is better maintained. Willow brook is well kept and has some difficult holes for the golfer who is always looking for a challenge as well as some nice gentle holes for the beginner. Overall this course is a great deal for the money and always a favorite of mine for a quick golf trip and easily booked Tee times.

Relatively inexpensive to play for this type course. Challenging enough to be fun but not a back-breaker. Water and a few sand traps on certain holes can make club selection critical to a good score. Course was in good shape for all the recent rain in the area.
