Brookside Country Club offers one of the finest 18-hole par 71 golf courses in the area designed by legendary golf course designer, Donald Ross, in 1922. In addition to a challenging course, Brookside offers a driving range open Tuesday through Sunday furnished with complimentary golf balls. Two beautiful putting greens and a pitching/chipping green are also available.
In 2003, the golf course was completely renovated to recapture the original design genius of Donald Ross including bunker renovation, rebuilding of the tee complexes, recapturing the size and shape of the greens, sculpting of the fairways to create the classic "S” shaped spacious and elaborate fairways, and a tree removal system. The hole routing and greens remain true to their original design. An additional 9 acres of fairway and 1 ½ acres of putting surfaces were reclaimed. Many of the original bunkers were restored to capture the feel and vision of Donald Ross. Every bunker was rebuilt to include new drainage, sand and re-sodded Bluegrass surrounds.
