Rated 3 out of 5 by telrod11 4.3 stars??? Really?
OK, went an played on the recommendation of you guys giving Alderbrook a 4.3 rating. Why?
I'd give this course a strong 3 - 3.5, but no more.
The conditions are great, but they built the course around houses, I mean, just to sell the houses. You have OB in play on every hole. It's tight and short, and has a lot of blind shots. I have no idea how anyone walking can avoid hitting into the group in front.
Pro shop staff - great
Food staff - not so much. When you place an order, it shouldn't take 30 minutes to get the wrong order delivered. Don't get me wrong, the shrimp wrap was great, but am still wondering where my chicken sandwich went...
Too many other choices around to make this drive, unless you're already there.

Played here once before and have been looking forward to a return round. Couldn't pass on $12 with cart!!!
Course was in great condition. Little drizzle to start. Done by 2nd hole and calm overcast 70 the rest of round. Was 4 hrs with the two ladies they paired me up with. Kept pace with group in front and played great on the back.
Only item I would work on is driving range could use some attention.
Will be back for sure.

Greens were in fantastic shape and from the tee boxes you had to plan your drive correctly on what side of the fairway you want to hit on. Very playable course for a mid handicapper.

Played on a hot summer day. Took a cart due to the 90 degree heat. The carts have coolers and a girl from the restaurant cleaned and filled ours with ice. The course is a fair test. It was in great shape and the greens rolled nicely.

Out in the middle of nowhere but worth the drive. Greens are always in good shape and three sets of tees to choose from.

I played 3 rounds during my week stay at the resort. From the resort, it was easy access, about a 5 min scenic drive through the tall trees up the hill to the course. They have a good practice range with hitting from the grass and mats, with two putting greens and sand trap practice area. The club house atmosphere is really nice and there are scenic views of the surrounding area to enjoy.
I would nickname the course as being "risk and reward". The fairways are cut through the tall pines with a few houses along the fairways. Several holes have elevation changes and medium to narrow fairways with forgiving greens, so good shot placement to the short grass from the tee box leads to way to the possible score rewards.
The course challenges the balances of my game, driving accuracy, fairway shots, chipping and putting. I consider the course to be an exercise of patience between the eagerness to circle a birdie score on my card and the rush to hit a shot into the trees.
Since Longer hitters can reach several of the par 4's from the tee box and a couple of the par 5's offer that eagle putt opportunity, however miss hit a shot and the score can turn into a big fat 10 really quick.
I played from different tees each round from the tips to the green tee's and enjoyed each of them equally. I played at different times morning, mid-day, and evening rounds and seeing the wildlife: deer, birds and bunny rabbits around the course during the morning and evening hours was a bonus.
The last round I played this week was in the evening and I was paired with a couple of local guy's (Paul and Dick) who shared a little of their course knowledge and good humor that really enhanced the Alderbrook experience. If you have an opportunity to play at Alderbrook, I would suggest to tee it high, aim for the short grass, hit it long and stay out of the trees.
