I really like this course, the staff are always friendly and helpful and the course has a lot of interesting and deceptive holes,. Rolled quite a few long approaches onto the green from what I thought were bad shots. There are a lot of dog legs with trees so your club selection needs to be spot on to score well. I would recommend to anyone.

Amazing course, though quite short the holes are a challenge with a few blind holes, and some beautiful but hard par 3. Would love to play again

Played on a Monday afternoon with not a soul on the course.

The course is in fantastic condition especially the greens.

Not a long course but very tricky.... would suit the thinking golfer rather than the big hitters.

Quite hilly in places so wouldn’t suit anyone with a pacemaker .

Enjoyable afternoon of golf.

"A course of great water features"

The course is a very good challenge with lovely features, especially the river medlock running through the course. The greens and fairways are in great condition and the rough is only long in areas not to close to the fairway. The lower section of the course by the river has a good selection of holes, many playing over the river. Overall the best part of the course is the Par 3's with great elevation changes and shots over water.

A really stunning course with some very challenging holes. All the par threes are well protected and potential card wreckers. Water comes into play on a fair few holes. It's nice that there are a range of length to the par fours with some true monsters and some risk reward holes where the right line in is key over distance.

The first hole is a brutal hole requiring the ability to shape the ball up and around a large oak tree the the middle of the fairway !! the only flat lie is to be on the right side of fairway , go left and you face a second shot with the ball two feet above you !!

The final three holes are a real treat with 16 a short par 4 with trouble all around, 17 a superb par three that requires two extra clubs to find the green safely . Then you have 18 a short par four which needs a solid fade around the slight dog leg, again a drive of 210 yards leaves a wedge to a severely elevated green, club up.

I would say the stumbling weak point and it's easy to fix is the lack of signs telling you where the next hole is . I ended up on the tenth after the first hole and on a couple of occasions got lost.

Will be playing again, as a top course !!

Good picturesque course to play with challenging greens. Some Fairways were boggy in places due to rain earlier in the day. Back 9 is hilly though.

Played Brookdale yesterday and although some parts can be ruff on the legs due to the hills it is one of the most beautiful courses I've played. Nice wide fairways on moat holes and in lovely condition. The views from the course make the round even more special. Met some members when we first arrived and they more more then happy to advise us on the course layout and hazards. Will definitely be playing again.

Played the course at the end of October and was pleasantly surprised at the course conditions, fairways were good and greens true although they had been hollolined this did not spoil the round. First 9 holes were good enjoyed the elevated 7th par 3 very nice hole. Back nine holes were superb really enjoyed some of the long par 4 holes and the par 3 holes are very nice. Handicap 16 scored 36 points 19 coming in.

Played at Brookdale gc for the first time yesterday, the weather was great so we were looking forward to an enjoyable day. we weren`t disappointed! Although the course was quite tight,it was in excellent condition. some of the holes were challenging especially for my standard of golf, but a thoroughly enjoyable outing. An interesting course layout at times, great greens and well kept fairways. Only downside for me was it is quite hilly!! Would definitely play there again and would recommend it to anyone!

Enjoyed my game today and I met a playing partner. The course itself was great but a bit all over the place. The club needs to signpost each tee off as I found it very difficult to know where they were. Other than that great course, value for money and I'm looking forward to playing their again.
