Unfriendly Staff

We needed rental clubs.

The guy at the desk sorted out two ugly bags with extremely wearied out clubs.

—> For these clubs he charges us 25 $ per set - in sum 50 $

When we asked him for acceptable clubs he only replied that are good enough for us.

Something like that has never happened before and is unacceptable.

Doesn't get much better

9 holes on a Sunday afternoon couldn't have gone any better. Course is in great shape, greens were fast. No burn out spots. Some wear from cart traffic but to be expected for a busy course this time of year.

The only hole I wasn't a fan of was the par 5 5th hole where you have drive then totally blind 2nd shot and tight third depending on your positioning. For sure just 1 hole that is target golf which is OK in around of 9 holes but I wanted another crack at it and it requires you to drive up and see what is in front of you or you'll make big mistake.

Lots of native grasses and meandering streams in between the holes which could swallow up balls from the erratic drives but it was super colorful and I've never seen more butterflies on a golf course than at Clearbrook. I'll go back and you should go too.

Nice Course Layout

Nice course and layout, but the traps need a lot of work. Seemed like only an inch of sand and then hard pan clay underneath. Course has a grill and the staff was very friendly.

True greens

The best part of Clearbrook are the greens. They roll true and are moderately fast. The tee boxes are above average and the fairways are too. I would prefer shorter grass on fairways, but they aren’t bad.

Very Good Golf

This course was very nice and moderately challenging... Greens in good shape for early spring... First time at this course and it was over all a good experience. I'll play it again.

Slow But Nice

My twosome played a 5:45 round. No ranger to speak of. We saw at least 3 fivesomes on the course during peak hours. Unacceptable. Not sure if they turn their heads for members or what but this will keep me from going back. The course itself was nice. Good grreens and fairways. Some really nice holes in a vacuum, but as a whole far to compact for my tastes. I guess that's just the old school style but probably doesn't help the pace of play when always waiting for other groups to play out of your fairway.

Nice to play here again.

Old golf course feel, layout is also old golf course.

Still fun to play after all the years have gone by.

I will continue to try and play here every year, as long as Golf Now offers good deals that is.
