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 conditions have been good, but I've always played in the fall so I can't talk to summer conditions. Sand traps aren't the plentiful. When there are traps, they're usually around the greens - just a few fairway traps.

Brown Deer is very convenient to Iowa City. It's easy to get to if you're in town for a game.

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.
