This course is very difficult because of its narrow fairways and small greens. There are many trees that can affect your shots, and ponds that come into play on several holes. Caddies are mandatory if you choose to walk the course. This course was redesigned by George Cobb in 1964, and another redesign was completed by John LaFoy in 1985.

A Joy to Play, Jun 04, 2004
|reviewer: Johnny Israel
from Baghdad, Iraq
|MBC's golfing facility is truly an enjoyable experience for golfers of all skill levels. A newly designed range and an excellant putting green provide for an easy warm up. Narrow fairways, numerous water hazards and added bunkers create a challenging layout. Finally, the stark contrast between the front nine (Mountain side) and the back nine (Brook side) formulate a beautiful golfing environment.|

Some good - some strange, Mar 01, 2004
|reviewer: Stirling Wadsworth
from East McKeesport, PA
|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.|
