This public golf course is like no other. The fairways are better than most greens on a typical public golf course. The greens are no exception. The front nine is long and open with strategrically situated hazards. The back nine is tight and very challenging with numerous water hazards. Drive it straight and one will not have a problem. The... More

This is my brother's favorite golf course and he plays all over the country. It is challenging with a wide open front nine where your ball has an expansive fairway to travel, so for those of us with less skill and accuracy, the first eight holes are less tricky. The back nine however, are very tightly wound around a large... More

They have good food. Just wished they had more variety for vegetarians. But it is a fun way to spend an evening watching people golfing and having some cold beer.

OK, Brown Deer is no Pebble Beach, but it's a great value, fairly challenging and a fun course to play. It's one of the courses we always play in the Iowa City area. Nice restaurant, too. While a short course, water comes into play on several holes as do elevation changes, adding to the challenge. Each time we've play, the... More

Brown Deer is Just GREAT! Always well maintained and great staff. Great greens, not an easy course by any means, plenty of traps and narrow drives. Challenging but not nerve racking.

This city owned course is a tale of two nines. The front nine is an open but fun course. The back nine (which originally was the only nine until they expanded) is narrow and difficult. Winding through houses, this nine is very tight with no room for error. Expect to lose a few balls in the trees and water.

Played Brown Deer Golf Club while on a trip in August 2012.This is an 18-hole par-71 course. The course measures 6315-yards from the gold tees, 5853-yards from the blue tees and 5367-yards from the white tees. There is also a set of red tees. Water comes into play on a number of holes. This was a fun course to play.
