Reviews for Brown Deer Golf Course
Explore the Course
The drive on this long par 4 must be in the left-center of the fairway for the player to see the entire putting surface. Long second shots to a heavily-bunkered green are required.
This is one of the most difficult holes on the course. Players must drive across the creek through a narrow opening to the elbow of a dogleg-left. The hole features a long, uphill second shot to an undulating green.
The third hole may look easy, but a narrow opening between trees makes the tee shot difficult. The green slopes severely from back to front, where it is guarded by a large bunker.
This short par 5 plays downhill from the tee to a landing area protected on the left by trees. Approach shots to the small green are over a creek.
This hole plays uphill to a putting surface surrounded by three large bunkers. Wind could be a factor here. A large green offers numerous pin placements, the most difficult of which is back-right.
This hole, the most difficult par 5 on the course, features a large landing area that narrows, with two trees in the fairway as you approach the green. The long, narrow putting surface has a ridge running through its center.
The toughest par 3 on the course, this hole is difficult because of the long tee shot and narrow green, which is bunkered on three sides.
Players tee off from back in the woods to the corner of this dogleg-left. Trees on the left will block sight of the green if the drive is short or left. While short-iron second shots are the rule here, this hole has proven to be the most difficult on the front nine.
This short par 4 provides a break from the more difficult eighth and tenth holes, if you stay in the fairway. The heavily-bunkered green will be difficult to hit from the deep rough. Long hitters may take aim at the green from a forward tee position.
A demanding hole because of the straight drive required, this par 4 features a narrow green protected by bunkers on both sides. As many bogeys as birdies will be made here.
Water and sand on the players left present most of the problems on this hole. The contoured green, which slopes toward the hazards from right to left, makes birdies difficult.
A 3-wood or iron off the tee will set up an uphill approach to the green. Trees and rough on either side of the fairway cause most of the trouble here.
The tee shot on this downhill par 4 must be short of the creek and preferably on the right side. The small, undulating green prevents many good birdie opportunities.
Four large bunkers protect the pin at this par 3. The most difficult pin placement here is tucked between the two bunkers on the left.
This dogleg-left is reachable in two strokes with a good tee shot. While birdies are common here, woods on the right as well as a small, sloping green can present problems and keep eagles to a minimum.
The narrow landing area and difficult green are the trademarks of this par 4. Trees on the left and sand on the right make driving difficult. Short irons are played to the green, which is guarded in front by the creek.
Players drive between two large willows to a narrow fairway with a large bunker on the right. The large green is guarded in front by sand, where a forward pin placement doesn’t offer much chance for a birdie.
A good drive over the creek allows players to go for the green in two strokes; otherwise, you must lay up. The green has five bunkers in front to penalize the daring golfer looking for an eagle.
