The Brownsville Muni is the perfect place to build your confidence and work on your game, especially in this day and age of championship layouts that torture the average hacker. The fairways are wide open and the large greens, although fast, offer a generous target for the wayward approach shot. The only catch is that water comes into play on most holes.

Hole 2 (only 328 yards) is one of those holes, and with an approach needing to carry about 100 yards of water, is considered one of the most challenging. Despite this testy second hole, the front nine is where you have the best opportunity to go low. The front is void of par 5s, and is featured by seven par 4s, most of which are under 330 yards. In fact, No. 8 is only 278 yards. The back can hurt you with longer par 4s and three par 5s, including the monster 18th hole at 626 yards.

Getting there : From Hwy 77 driving south, exit FM 802 and turn left. Travel to Jose Marti and turn left again. When you reach San Marcelo, turn left. The entrance is on the right side of the road.

    When I played, the greens were almost completely dead (with lots of dead spots in the fairway too). I'm not sure if that's the case most of the time, but it made putting very frustrating. However, this is a really cheap place to play, and for anyone just going to have a good time or work on their game, it's a fair place. There is no barrier from the houses though, so be prepared to basically be in someone's backyard on every other hole.

    The course quality is very good for the season. The lay0out is poor, too many houses around. Make a screen with trees would be nice.Add trash can and bench on the course.
