Clearbrook Golf Club
My experience began by being hurried from the range to wait 10 minutes on 1 tee. It was nearly an hour through #4. Front side was well over 2 hours. 3 groups stood at #5 with another searching for balls in trees left of fairway.
Apparently the slowest players didn't make the turn, but still slow play on the back followed. Multiple players in group ahead hit 2 off par 4 and 5 tees, while we sought shade from the humid day.
Greens were receptive, yet rolled true and were well manicured. Several greenside bunkers were more like gardens then sand.

Good little course.
Good little course. Fairways and tee boxes a little shaggy and even some weeds. Greens nice and soft, not too fast. Water on several holes and some blind shots. A little more attention to course grass/weed maintenance is required but overall acceptable.

This course needs some tender loving care
This course has a great layout overall, with a few funky holes that need some rework badly. It is a very bad course for women, as the red tees are too long and seem like an after thought. They leave many awkward distances on second shots and difficult forced carries for women. The woman I golfed with hits her tee shots about 140 to 180 yards. She was constantly facing 100 yard plus forced carries.
The course is very shaggy and poorly manicured. The fairway grass was long and uneven. The greens were undulating and interesting. The bottom line is the layout is good, challenging, and interesting but poorly maintained. It seems they may be short of available funds. I would not play this course again, as there are too many other better options nearby.

A walkable and challenging course
Clearbrook Golf Club is a good and walkable golf course that has improved its fairways, greens, and tee boxes during the last few years. The front nine is a little more open than the back nine, but the brook that runs through the property comes into play more frequently on the front nine which creates a reoccurring challenge. The staff at Clearbrook are very customer service oriented and it's "clear" (pun intended) that they want players to have a positive experience. Our foursome enjoyed the quality of the course and plans to return.

The course was in pretty good shape. The staff was very friendly. The sandwich was delicious. There were a couple of spots under repair otherwise I would have given 5 stars. The course is fun and challenging. I will play here a few more times this year.

This course has a great clubhouse and patio
We were visiting Saugatuck and read some reviews on this course and decided to play. Great service , staff and wonderful practice facilities, and clubhouse.
Course was challenging with a few blind shots due to the up and down nature with very good greens.
Well done will play again!

Great course for the value
Course was in great shape! Play a little slow probably because of holiday. Paired up with a nice couple from
Chicago area, we had a great time only wish are scores reflected it.

Clearbrook has rebounded
Pace of play is good...new super has made some changes that positively effect the the course.,,,still have some improvements to make but the momentum is positive. Small greens are a challenge.
The bar/restaurant is more than solid, would recommend staying for dinner if you play in the afternoon. Excellent setting, friendly staff, awesome service. My favorite golf course bar.
