The most visible amenity of Brooksville Country Club at Majestic Oaks is the championship golf course featuring our four new quarry holes. The contoured and rolling fairways, dramatic elevation changes, beautifully conditioned course, and picturesque back drop creates a breathtaking course and a great challenge.
In 2003, the Club was purchased by Majestic Oaks LLC and has undergone an intensive revitalization. Renowned golf course architect Bobby Weed has started the golf course redesign with the construction of our breathtaking rock quarry holes, followed by a spectacular redesign of the remainder of the course beginning in 2006. The combination of outstanding design and meticulous attention to detail make our Club one of Central Florida's premier courses.
