Izatys Black Brook Golf Course Reviews
Reviewed by: Tyler Nybeck - Andover, MN. Tyler shoots in the70s.
Review Summary: Black Brook Course is very difficult and I could see it hosting a PGA event if it was longer. Sanctuary is in great shape. It is more for the golfer looking for less of a challenge
Conditions: Black Brook is usually in great shape, greens are always roll fast and well cut and fairways are always well kept. When the weather isn't great though the course can get really wet because of the water table around Lake Mille Lacs and all the wooded areas. Sanctuary is usually in good shape too; the greens roll fast and the fairways are well kept. Usually doesn't get as wet on rainy days because the course doesn't have a lot of trees.
Scenery: Black Brook is cut right out of the woods so there are a lot of foxes and deer running around. Very tame animals, foxes are known to get close and follow you around. Very cool! The signature hole #14 is a par three right on the shore of lake Mille Lacs one of the best views you will see anywhere but don't under think the length try playing it in the wind and it could turn the hole into a par four. #16 is one of the toughest par threes in the state. Sanctuary doesn't have as much scenery but it has some deer and foxes and a lot of Wild Grasses and fun little holes.
Layout: Black Brook is a wooded course with a lot of ponds and sand traps, it is cut out a lot like a PGA course on TV. Very fast greens and rolling fairways.
Services: Excellent, cart crew washes your clubs when you pull up and great food and 2 or 3 beverage cars on the course at a time depending on the day.
