Slowwwww Greens

The course was dry this time and the staff was very friendly. The greens were just terrible again. Lots of non-repaired divots and the slowest I have ever played.

Straight forward

Coming from California I was not sure what to expect from a $25 dollar golf course but was pleasantly surprised at the layout at ShadowBrooke. With the winter and spring that you’ve had the course was surprisingly green yet drained enough to be very playable. Greens a little slow but smooth same as most all of fairways. Certainly worth another trip on my next visit.

Shadow brook outing

Considering we were playing in MN in Nov, the course was great! Fairways were awesome and still green!! The only negitive is that the greens were soaked and full of sand! It didn’t matter where you stepped on the greens it was mushy and putting was difficult! Of course anytime you can play 18 holes of golf is a great day!!

FUN in the sun

I had the opportunity to speak w/ Bobby & Tom during and after my round. What a treat! These guys work the grounds so well. I loved every green, rolling true- this late in the season!! Unheard of:)

Thanks guys. I'll be back soon!

West of the Metro quiet track

Quiet course, long ride from town. Fairly flat, narrow fairways, nice greens, decent staff. They had sprinklers running on a few holes, got them to shut them off while we played those holes. Nothing stands out as great or unforgettable, but a fun layout and almost had the place to ourselves on a Sunday afternoon.

Lesson learned-Buyer Beware!

It was a beautiful weekend and an opportunity to give Shadowbrooke a second try was at hand. A reasonable price lured me northwest to this overbooked course one more time hoping for a different experience.

Upon my arrival I noticed another line at the first tee box, not a good sight...I hesitantly loaded my clubs hoping that I could at least try to enjoy the afternoon. But unfortnately I experienced slow play due to overbooking which prevented me from getting into a good rhythm. This has set my mind to marking this as another bad experience at this course. I understand if you overbook once, but twice in a row and a month apart in that mid afternoon.. Just plain stupidity! PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING!!

The owner of this sub par establishment should consider taking care of his course better than they take care of their patrons and maybe some will stick around. It looks like this course is in great need of some work and workers...I would consider helping if needed, but not sure if the owner cares?

TOO BAD, it actually a pretty cool little track...oh well

Green is too slow.

Course layout is ok.

Sunday afternoon slow play is acceptable, but green is too slow. I can't tell the difference between putting green and fairway. If you don't care about green or horrible putter, this course is good. Or it's so cheap do not complain.

A fun 18 hole golf course. Well maintained fairways and greens. You can get in trouble if you don't hit the ball fairly straight.

Great course

Tom and the staff have really brought the course to great conditions since early spring.

If you played during our early season, now is the time to return. Cart paths are redone!

From tee boxes to greens the course is in great shape. Once the details fill in from the paths and drainage repairs, it will be great. The course will give you a challenge with some blind shots, greens have some movement to them and were a bit soft after the rain. But as with any course, keep it in the short hairs and you can score! Thanks Tom!

First Time Playing

Could have played Glencoe or Montgomery for better experience

This was my first time to the course and I was excited to play it. We arrived 30 minutes early for our 7:50 AM tee time to hit a bucket of balls and there were already 5-6 carts waiting on the first tee box. The person who check us in stated they "must have over booked" a complete understatement!

The practice green could barley support 3 people and it didn't look like it hadn't been mowed in a while. The tee boxes,fairways and greens looked like they could use a quick cut. It was a long day I believe it took about 5 hours to finish our round.

I will check it out again if its priced less than $15 to see if they change anything?

We had a blast playing today! The clubhouse workers were friendly and helpful. The grounds crew made a point to stop working when hitting on the hole that they were working on. Greens have improved and were mowed much shorter so your putt got a true roll. Fairways were well groomed. The course has improved their sand traps from last year. There is new sand on all of the holes and they are well kept. The sides are trimmed and no weeds. I would strongly recommend the course especially for the price.
