Established back in 1932, the original course at Brooks Golf was augmented by an additional 9-hole layout (Scot’s Links) in 1995 so golfers can now choose to play a round on a combination of the Mounds, Val Brooks and Scot’s Links nines.
A club well known for its environmental focus and Audubon International membership, Brooks Golf almost became extinct in 2019, after the 230-acre property was put up for sale. Fortunately, it was purchased for $3 million then presented to the Conservation Foundation of Dickinson County, a non-profit organization, which awarded Brooks Management a 10-year lease to operate the facility as a 27-hole golf complex.
Brooks Golf has three very distinct nines, allowing golfers to enjoy a parkland, wetland or links-like playing experience. The Val Brooks circuit is parkland in style, featuring tree-lined fairways, while the Mounds nine offers risk/reward opportunities with water hazards in play on most of the holes. The newer White loop brings in wide open fairways with prairie grasses and strategically-placed bunkers.
