Greens were aerated and the course is coming out of the winter season are my reasons for bad condition. I like the course it's not a hard course and think it's a good value.

Managers and cashiers are the rudest and least helpful in the entire area. They will blame golfnow and tell you that you are paying almost nothing to play there so don't complain or go home. Do NOT waste your money or give them your business!

I had not played this course and was told that it was a nice municipal course that was worth the money. I would have to disagree totally. To start, I booked the round on this site at a cost of $4.00 booking fee, $47.00 for the round, and $20.00 for cart, per player. Cheap, but not that cheap, this round was not worth $71.00 for a weekday morning round. I had three major problems with the round; the weather called for rain but none of the carts had club covers. It rained off and on but it was really difficult to keep the clubs dry without the additional cover that most carts have. The greens were freshly aerated and sanded. This should be posted by Golflink before tee times are confirmed by players and by the course upon check in. 71 bucks and most of the greens were not puttable due to sanding and lack of maintenance. Lastly the grill had very little food available hot or cold. Premade sandwiches of tuna or chicken salad and chips were all that was on hand. I know that we are still in spring season mode, but this should have been a $40.00 round at best. I would not pay $70.00 for this course in perfect shape.

More or less a "run of the mill" golf course. The back nine seems to just go back and forth. Good length par 5's, all well over 500 yards. Some scenic holes on the front nine...a few tough dog-leg holes. Fairways pretty wide open and of course, trees to the side. Hasn't rained in over a month as of my playing, so rather dry conditions on holes that were suppose to be soggy. I actually appreciated the presence of the ranger who drove by several times...crowded course but things moved along well. Very few water holes, but when present, they are rather pretty. Worth a visit!

Not a bad muni run by a regional park authority. Gets too much play, my 0945 was pushed back because local hackers group had not gotten their weekly time. Mid week and it was packed, 4.5 hour round. Has a range and putting surface and a chipping area at the 'on deck' area. That should have been a clue. No rangers in sight, Club Pro made a drive by, but nothing to speed up play. Not much he could have done, the course was full to the rim. Interesting enough track, but with the amount of use, the course shows the wear, greens pockmarked with ball marks, a few dead spots on greens, no sand in bottle on cart and none to be found. Limited snack bar, pretty much a self serve, hot sandwiches in heater all day. Two beers to a player at the turn allowed, per county regs. Canadian geese have found a home they don't plan on leaving and have made a mess of the area around one of the small lakes. All this being said, if I could find a time when the course is over-run, I would try again. But, will make sure to call ahead and see if any outings, groups, or anything else is scheduled and try to avoid them.

A well maintained, for a public course. Gets really crowded on weekends.

I just played Brambleton for the first time this past Saturday, and hit (or just missed) all of the fairways in regulation, I missed a few greens due to poor shots, and had a hard time holding several of the greesn I did hit in regulation.

I found the course to be a very nice layout, and while not what you would describe as "Wide Open" by any means, it is very fair. Poor shots will generally be penalized, and good shots generally rewarded.

The fairways were in good shape and cut nice, and while I was only in the rough a time or two off the tee, found the lies to be fair and conditions good.

Now for the greens: To be sure, they are in very good condition, they generally have moderate amounts of slope and generally seemed to roll pretty true. However in my opinion, they were simply far too fast for most recreational golf. I won't discuss my own blown birdie opportunities or blown par saves due to the fast greens or the number of good shots that rolled through the green. While many may not appreciate actual stimp meter observations (a meaurement of green speed) according to the Brambleton staff, the greens were "All rolling at least an 11". I happen to have a stimp meter and my own measurement after completing play at 4:15 was 11.5, and by then, it had gotten quite a bit cooler than it had been earlier.

Like all golfers, I appreciate good greens and I prefer moderate to fast greens with speeds of 8-9. I have never played on greens with speeds above 11 before, (and may never again)and simply was not prepared for such fast putting conditions as those encountered at Brambleton. I'm not sure if the greens will always be that fast, but while I drove the ball well all day and would generally be very pleased, I did not enjoy my round at Brambelton at all because I simply could not judge the speed of the greens.

Good public course. Great pro shop and club house. Nice driving range and putting greens. The course marshal was rude!!! Won't go back.

Fun course anytime.

Just when you think you have this course under control, 6 and 7 bring you back to earth. It took me a few years before I finally put a good round together here. As always,it was my fault, not the courses.

A very good layout, usually in good condition. Some of the sand traps could use some work. Fairways, tee boxes and greens are good. A fun course and good value.

Typical muni

Always packed, slightly overpriced, with ho-hum conditions. A hackers paradise as it offers just enough of a challenge to make high cappers think this is a tournament ready course. Greens are always slow and pace of play is always an issue. Not worth what they charge you either.
