Mountain Brook Club -- Some good - some strange
Review by: Stirling Wadsworth This course is a mixed bag of good/very good holes mixed with a few holes that are simply strange. This is due to the designers having to work with some restrictions on available space for routing holes. For example, hole #2 is a fine, slightly dog-legged par 4 that requires two good shots to reach. The hole is followed up by a short, tight dogleg par 4 to a blind green. The Par 5 fifth hole is far from classic. Its extremely undulating fairway can reward a good drive with an awkward downhill lie that prevents the golfer from attempting a long approach. The eighth is once again a excellent long straight par 4 to a challenging green. A great hole. This is followed up by a bizarre Par 5 which should ideally be played with a 5 iron from the tee, an 8 iron around a steep hill and a Wedge approach!?! The back nine is almost totally flat and pasture-like with several straightaway, unremarkable par 4's. This leads to the dogleg right 16th that has an approach that is so steep that you can hardly see the top of the flagstick. Hit it and pray!! This course is in excellent condition with tremendous bent grass greens. Give it a try for a unique experience.
