Edgewood in Big Bend boasts two different 18-hole courses, the Oaks and the Pines. There is something for everyone no matter what skill level you are since the more challenging Oaks Course is perfectly complemented by the more forgiving Pines Course. The Oaks is routed through a diverse landscape of rolling hills covered with mature forests and lakes. It also winds alongside the Fox River. Water hazards come into play and there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Tremendous emphasis is placed on accuracy on this golf course, but it is not too punishing if your shots are slightly errant. The course stretches to 6,800 yards from the back tees. A cart will be required on this golf course but the flatter, shorter Pines Course is much more walker friendly.

This course has an excellent back 9 that makes up for the just ok layout on the front 9. I give them a pass for dealing with the river that causes wet, rugged conditions at times on the front 9. If dry, the front 9 can be fun with quite a bit of water to challenge.

That being said, this course's signature is the back 9 that is a design you would get from a $50+ golf course. In addition, the back 9 usually has much better conditions. All around solid golf course that is worth playing for the back 9.

Signed up to play 18 on the Pines, 6:35 tee time. Course is under construction so the traditional two separate 18 hole courses are now condensed into a 36 hole facility. Front nine was marred by the fact that the greens mower wasn't cutting the greens in order of play so 4 of the 9 greens were still covered with morning dew. Went to play the next nine and the 2nd tee box already had a group teeing off and a group waiting, pace of play was going to be at least 2.5 hours for that nine. Walked off the course. The staff has been friendly enough in the past but today they dropped the ball. It would seem that they just haven't figured out how to run their golf course as a 36 hole facility. The course's web page does not address the temporary course layout during construction. Stay away until they have their construction sorted out.

If you're going to call Edgewood for a teatime make sure you ask if there's any group outings that day. Apparently it's not their policy to tell you how booked the course is that day . I played the Pines Course on Friday June 23, it took approximately two hours and 40 minutes to complete the front nine. We had to stop three holes into the back nine because of the time. I brought this up to the personnel in the golf shop , there response was "sorry are bad". I think the correct response should've been, we apologize for the inconvenience and here's a rain check to come back and shoot the Pines over.

I have played here maby times before and no problems. But last sunday they decided to change my tee time 1hr before iam scheduled to play. The tee time i booked was for 8:52 am for the oaks course. They changed it to 8:44 on short notice and put me on the pines. I did not want to play this course since i booked for the oaks. Even at check in i said tee time for 852 and then they still failed to tell me n my group my time was changed and playing the totally wrong course. So i get to the first tee on the oaks thinking im playing the course at 852 then find out not playing this course. The starter was very rude about it even after showing i booked for oaks and forced started us off the pines. Probaby not coming back to this place again. I was so mad.

The Oaks is a nice but challenging layout. Shot management is key and sometimes driver off the tee isn't the best first choice on a few holes. There are a few holes that were soggy due to the recent heavy rain and lakes/river was high. Drainage isn't as optimal but I've played when it's dry and it's fine. The Pines is easier but also offers some challenges as well. I prefer the Pines tho. Good prices. Friendly staff. Greens rolled like a 10

Played the Oaks several times, like the course. Most holes have narrow fairways so straight hitting is critical. A few holes are more forgiving. Really like the island green par 3 on the back 9.

It was early in the season so fairways were a little spongy. Starter made us take our little cooler back to the car, stated something about state law. saw the cart girl once so take that as you like. I like the course, its close and has good deals usually, it was a bit crowded. Expected as the first 70 degree day of the season. My golfing partner was drunk before we even started, so that put a damper on things right away. Overall experience i give 3 stars. But will go back, mainly because its close to my house, probably wouldnt make a long drive to golf here.

I'm a member here and play all the time when I'm not in school. Personally I find the Oaks to be more challenging and more fun. The back 9 of the Oaks is a must play. I also find he front of the pines fun if you want to play a quick nine. Every nine offers some difficult long par fours(from the blue tees). I am in 11th grade and have a 6 handicap, but still find this course somewhat challenging. Bottom line Edgewood is a must play for any golfer in the Milwaukee area.

I had a promo ($10 off a hot deal) so the round cost me under 5 bucks with a cart.

The course was in great shape in spite of the wet fall we've been experiencing. The fairways were cut the greens quick & receptive. They even had a maintenance man out blowing leaves away from the fairways. I got there a little early and able to get out early. I played as a single & got around in 3 leisurely hours. Never saw another group out there. I even made an eagle on the backside of the oaks course. Holed out from 160 with a 9 iron. It's always in great shape & recommend playing here.

This is a course in limbo as they have a great 9 holes and the rest of the course is strange. Let's just say $10 was what I would pay for 27 holes and I'd pay $30 for the 9 holes on the back of the Oaks. Small greens and no defined tee boxes. So if you're looking to work on your game this would be better than a driving range.
