Brookshire Inn and Golf Club nourishes treks across its 6,300-yard golf course with plates of steak, seafood, and pasta served in a casual dining area that overlooks the lush landscape. Twosomes or foursomes nestle into golf carts and whip around the contrasting 18-hole course, comprised of a short front nine that sidesteps the Red Cedar River and an Scottish links-style back nine speckled with mounded bunkers and forgiving greens, unlike the quick-to-judge grass swales that reside along the course. With a pair of holes that stretch more than 500 yards, the championship course demands strategic club choice and precise shots, especially on the water-heavy 18th hole.
Golfers can swap padded perches on the golf cart for a patio seat on the country club's deck to nosh on American fare and survey the scenic ninth green. Servers whisk appetizers from the kitchen, balancing plates of flash-fried calamari or the Brookshire sampler with barbecue ribs, wings, and potato skins paired with a delicious house sauce best used for blotting out bogeys on scorecards. For entrees, cooks slather barbecue ribs with savory sauce and drop the 10-ounce sirloin steak atop a pile of haystack-shaved onions. A medley of meaty meals, fresh seafood, and pasta dishes couples with cold 16-ounce glasses of domestic draft beer or house wines. The post-round meals can be enjoyed during summer entertainment nights.
Brookshire Inn & Golf Club
Tucked into a bend in the Red Cedar River, the 18-hole course at Brookshire Inn & Golf Club can be found on undulant terrain filled with tricky obstacles that take several forms. Players navigate around the river and ponds, grass swales, and mounded bunkers to cover up to 6,300 yards by the time their round is through. When they sink their putts on the 18th green and spike their visors for the last time, they can retire to the clubhouse restaurant for eats such as flatbread pizzas, salads, and sandwiches.
