Located just north of Tampa, Brooksville, Fla. is one of the country’s lesser-known golf hotbeds. You’ve probably heard of World Woods Golf Club, but there are a few other courses that make use of the area’s surprisingly hilly topography. Top 250 reviewer for Golf Advisor LurkinRhino was pleasantly surprised with Brooksville Country Club .
3rd time making the drive from Wesley Chapel to Brooksville to play here. Well worth the 40 minute trip. The staff was extremely friendly, got us out well ahead of our tee time. Pace of play was excellent. We played 36 holes on a Saturday in under 6 hours.
The greens were perfect. Not a blemish on any of them and they rolled faster than most courses in the Tampa/Pasco area. Fairways looked to have been over seeded and are green and filing in nicely. Tee boxes were well maintained, with the exception of the cranes pecking the but not much you can do about them.. There are many tee boxes that they seem to alternate to so there’s always a nice one to play from.
The layout is great. The front 9 builds the excitement for the back. 10 and 11 slowly creep up hill then the sexiness starts. The split level fairway on 12 is very fun to play. Crazy elevation changes on the quarry holes will make you forget what part of the country you are in….
Well worth the drive and deserving of multiple rounds just to get familiar with the elevation changes and sloping greens on most of the holes.
Will definitely be back very soon.
