With fairways that are lined with pines, hardwoods and willow trees, Browns Run features fine playing conditions and reasonable rates.

Hole location info is provided for with color coded flags on the greens indicating front, middle and back pin placements. There are 49 bunkers situated along fairways and green side to contend with, but there are no water hazards on course.

The tree lined fairways are built on a mostly level terrain, with gradual elevation changes on the back nine. The green complexes are only slightly raised with gentle mounding and are only mildly undulating. Most of the slopes on the putting surfaces run from back to front. Most tee boxes present finely landscaped views of the fairways that often are framed by trees on each side.
