About Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, Brute

Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a Resort 36 hole golf facility located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The facility has two championship 18-hole golf courses. They are The Highlands Course and The Brute Course.

The two courses were originally part of the Hugh Hefner Playboy Club.

The Brute course first opened for play in 1968. The course was designed by Robert B. Harris.

The Brute Course's huge rolling greens average over 8,000 square feet in size.  "GOLF Magazine" described this course as "a behemoth that ranks among the toughest layouts in the Midwest."  

An eye-catching hole is #9, a 421-yard, par 4, which requires a tee shot over a creek before it finishes alongside Grand Geneva Lake.

In the area for some Customer golf and got a $59 deal to play this Robert Bruce Harris "Bunker Infested" layout. This track is truly spread out and separated by trees from the few holes that are side by side. Ponds, lakes, creeks, sand traps(great condition) are there to greet you on every hole as you make your way to the generous size greens. Getting on the smooth and firm greens is the easy part, making the possible 50' - 75' putts are another story. Playing from 7,085yds / 136 / 73.8 down to 5,244 yds / 129 / 70.0 will have you picking various tee boxes for the many forced carries you will be faced with. The two (2) Par 5 holes you'll have the fun with are #9 and #18 that follow the Lake and have many hazards if not in the fairway. Conditions were great from tee to green with many yardage marking to choose from. Shooting 43 / 41 w/39 putts should show that yardage to the pin is more important than just hitting the green.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level

We played on a girls weekend. When we booked the tee times, we were not told that there was an ironman/muddier competition being held adjacent to the course. By that I mean right next to several holes. The public address system was loud and distracting, not to mention the spectators, many with strollers, walking through the course. Some actually were helping us spot our ball. We were not told about this event until AFTER we paid and were on the first tee. Should have let us know and given us a better rate.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better courses for less nearby
