Featured Golf Course Review:
Sunny Brae Golf & Country Club -- Sunny Brae Delight
Review by: Ed Fox Beautiful golf course with great oak and maple trees nestled along the Cedar River. Number 2 is a up hill par four with the second shot to a blind green atop a limestone bluff and rated on of the toughest in Iowa. Number 5 you tee off a bluff and over the trees to another hidden green with the river menacing on the right. Six is a short par 3 over the river with the green well protected by huge oak trees. You walk over a swinging bridge to reach the green and 7th tee. Tee back over the river to number 7 and follow along through #8. Number 9 is a short par 5 with OB on the right and huge trees on both sides of the fairway. The small sloping green sits atop a bluff and demands a great approach shot. If you tend to hit the ball to the right bring an extra sleeve or two as holes 3 thru 9 have woods, the river, OB, or all of the above to gather all shots off line. It is a great short couse that will challenge the best yet reward those who hit it staight and bring their short game with them. Give it a try, you will enjoy your time.

Briarwood Golf Course -- Bentgrass Beauty
Review by: John Beautiful bentgrass fairways. Located within housing developement. Many holes are lined with out of bounds stakes with sand coming into play on almost every shot on the course and water coming into play on 8 holes. Lacking tree growth, this young course is a delight to play and from the tips can be an extremely long and challenging 7100 + yds with very long par 4's. Greens roll true and are usually in very good condition. The 2nd round of the 2004 IOWA OPEN was played here. Watch out for holes 9, 17 and 18.
