Save your money!!!!! The greens are terrible!!!!! They are going to redo the greens in July and have started killing the grass on the old greens. They will be on temp greens the first of July and they say they will be on the new greens in about 6 weeks. Until they get on the new greens, I would recommend going somewhere else.

Not a bad public course. I would rate it very average. The course is short but the greens are nice and very fast. It's a must play for the price.

This is a quality lay-out. Its shorter than most of the newer courses, but its usually in great condition, and other than the morning a fairly easy course to get onto. I think its one of the better public courses in Chattanooga.

Brainerd is a fine little municipal course, they have excellent practice facilities, friendly staff and well maintained greens. Fairly wide open, kind of short but with undulating greens. Mornings are busy with a daily low ball starting at 9am.

This course is OK, I wouldnt say it is great, just Ok. Only complaint I would have is all th older people playing and thinking they own the course. This is a public "city owned" course, all of our tax dollars help pay for the course, so we all own it, not just you old geasers. But nothing too great to say or nothing bad to say, just a decent course.

Brainerd Value

This older course has really improved, and sports some of the best fairways and greens in the Chattanooga area. The cost, for a muni, is simply amazing. The staff is friendly (it is the South)and the course itself is really fine. There are some challenging holes, not a lot of hills, and very little water. Bunkers make up for that. Highly recommended.
