Brighton Park GC
Forty-five years ago, they opened this course and have made considerable improvements each decade. It is a good course for the average player with enough difficulty to make it interesting for the serious golfer and with few enough hazards to make it fun for the casual golfer.
The course runs 5700 yards to 6600 yards so it is not gruelling. The fairways are rye and the greens are bent grass. Maintenance is pretty good but the course still dries out (and gets fast) during the mid-summer months. It is not a bang-away course (some shot control is necessary) but you aren't hurt too badly by errant shots because the rough is not too deep.
There are a few bunker and sand traps but not much to worry about. Most holes are line of sight from tee to green which helps in club selection.
The premises are open from April to November except for one week of summer tournaments and ten days of maintenance that are spread out over the golfing season.
The greens fees with cart is about $30 (2005 prices). Call ahead for tee times or be prepared to wait.
There is a large practice range where you can warm up your swing for $5 a bucket of balls.Related to:
