What if you could pick and choose 18 holes from any golf course from around the country, line them up and play them? Physically, it’s impossible, of course. However, Golf Digest did the next best thing: They created a list allowing you to seek out these diamonds-in-the-rough for yourself. If you went by their recommendation, you would find yourself on the course at Brooksville Country Club seeking out No. 12, featured in the January 2011 issue of Golf Digest as part of the 18 "Most Fun Holes in America." You might be familiar with other names gracing this list, such as TPC Sawgrass and Pebble Beach — need we say more?
Brooksville Country Club is a par-72 championship course with a back-nine coming from the mind of renowned architect Bobby Weed. This beautiful North Tampa track features holes on the back nine that are carved right out of an abandoned limestone mine, offering undeniable character and topography to an already stunning course. Most courses tend to have designs that are manufactured and drawn-up; Brooksville is a stark contrast in that this course is "of the land" upon which it's built. You’ll find long, undulating fairways with plenty of topographical changes, which make Brooksville’s length play longer than it says on paper.
The course measures out to a fair 6,812 yards from the tips with a course/slope rating of 72/128. Aside from the aesthetics that any PGA-caliber course will bring you, Brooksville will likely make you use every club in your bag, as most dynamic designs will. The course features four different tee locations, which appeal to the scratch golfer and the weekend warrior alike.
Before you hit the course, be sure to utilize the full-service practice facility offered by Brooksville Country Club. From a full-size driving range to practice greens and putting greens, you’ll have everything at your disposal when it comes to dusting those clubs off before you hit the links. While you’re improving your game, swing into the pro shop to check out all of the biggest names in golf that you demand and deserve. Lastly, be sure to tally up the day's scores over some great food and a cold beer at the restaurant and bar.
So get up and get out to Brooksville Country Club to see one of America’s most fun holes at one of Florida’s finest courses!
