Brett

COVID-19 rules at this course required replacing divots. This didn’t work, and course should be sanding divots as fairway were really beat up in common landing areas.

Continuous Decline, Not Impressed

Have been golfing here for 20 years, and have seen continuous decline of the course since Breezy Point took over. Driving range in horrible shape, balls stacked on tin tray. No yardage book, towel, tees on cart. Not worth $120 during prime time or $90 in Fall. Management is clearly no longer interested in keeping this course as a prime destination in this area.

In all honesty ever since Breezy took over it has gotten better and better...The drainage and green speeds have gotten much better...Not sure where else u play but its quite a bargain for 120 or 90....No towels or tees is Covid oh btw....it is BY FAR THE BEST IN THE AREA!!!

Beautiful course!

I went into this round not knowing what to expect based on the reviews I read. I was really impressed with the course and the friendliness of staff. The back nine was especially scenic. My phone is full of pictures! It wasn’t terribly busy so that helped with pace of play. Lots of opportunities to lose balls so make sure you have enough. We ate at the Antlers restaurant afterwards and that was equally good. Highly recommend this course.

BAD

Dont be fooled by the name "Breezy Point" in front of the course name. Course was short and not kept well. Pace of play was atrocious. Two groups waiting at every tee box. This course was worse than the worst municipal course in the Twin Cities Metro.

Watch out for thieves!

You would think at a quality named resort, they would hire honorable rangers. I hit a ball to the left of the green. I went to where my wife hit her ball. She hit to the right side of green. As we drive up I see the golf ranger coming around from the left side of the green and drive around to the right side towards where my wife hit her shot. He turns and see us coming towards him and he drives away. I drop her off and I go to look for my ball. It’s not there! I did not see him pick it up but the way he looked at her ball and then just took off when we came up makes me very suspicious. After the round I was informed at the desk, that the ranger I described had been known to take balls. Knowledge of this type of activity by this person should not be just Oh Well! That’s what he does. I will not golf this course again and advise others to stay away!
Fire him or if he works for free green fees (and stolen golf balls) is he worth losing paying customers?

Course is fun to many slow groups today

Played this course many times, nice layout and well maintained. The staff is awesome. Today there was a lot of bachelor parties that slowed the course down greatly lots of large groups took me double the amount of time that it usually does to play 18. I will be back though for sure as everything else about the course is excellent!

One of The King's Best

Deacon's Lodge is an Arnold Palmer design just north of Brainerd, MN, and is by far my favorite Arnold Palmer design I've played.

The opening hole gives you a flavor for what you're going to see throughout the day. You're greeted with a daunting looking tee shot, but when you get to the fairway you find that there is a lot more room than you think. This is true the entire way around! The fairways are ample and the pressure is really on your approach shots.

The conditions at Deacon's Lodge are immaculate. The greens are incredibly fast and true. You quickly learn to do your best to stay below the hole. The fairways and the tees are really good as well.

The staff at Deacon's Lodge gave our group a really warm welcome. Every person we talked to, from the pro shop to the starter to the course marshal was extremely friendly and helpful.

Brainerd, MN is definitely a golf destination with a lot of really nice courses in the area. Deacon's Lodge is a must play when you're in the Brainerd area. You won't be disappointed!

My favorite hole is the par 4 7th hole. It's actually one of my favorite par 4s anywhere. The tee shot asks you to decide how much you want to bite off. Once you make your decision you'll have to execute. Anything from birdie to triple is possible here!

Golf with son

Beautiful course esp the back 9. Course in good shape. No cart service due to virus but beer avail at turn. Back for dinner at course restaurant was excellent. Able to mix tee length between 5800 and 4800 to play a reasonable 5400 yards for 74 year old senior

Please cut your fairways! Need faster greens!

I haven't played Whitebirch in 25 years but I remember I liked the layout. The condition of the course was good except for the following: Rocks in the bunkers (not a few but a lot), very slow greens*, and shaggy fairway where you will get flier lies. *I'm used to fast greens so this resort course was unbelievably slow uphill. Downhill putts did not run out. The course is tight on a number of holes but overall playable, especially on the front except for number 1 handicap hole which is a tight par 5. I do recommend this course to play but Breezy needs to invest in the bunkers & mow the grass.
