Brookfield Golf Club (Cambridge, Ontario) has been a local favourite for many years. Originally laid out as a 9-hole course in the 1960’s, it expanded to 18 holes shortly thereafter, and a third nine was added in the early 1990’s. The result is three challenging 9 hole loops, which offer multiple options for an 18 hole round. Brookfield is built on rolling terrain, so there will be some uneven lies, and each shot poses a new club selection riddle. The fairways are wide and tree lined. Out of the twenty-seven holes on this course, water hazards come into play on twenty-three of them. The greens are fairly large, with a variety of flat and undulating surfaces – but they’re all firm, true, and challenging. Brookfield is perfectly suited to cater to golfers of all playing ability, offers a relaxing tent for a steak dinner with your favorite 200 people – and as a result, is a tournament destination.
With pars of 34, 34, and 33 – Brookfield might give golfers the impression that it’s a walk in the park – but what it gives up in length, it more than takes back in challenging shots, tough greens, and water hazards which are always in sight. That being said, it is still a beautiful walk.
Central to Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph, Brookfield is a popular local choice, with great food and great people. Also, Beaverdale is right across the road, why not make a day of it and play 36 holes?
