Rating 67.8
Type Public
Petrifying Springs is the flagship Kenosha County Parks. It is the oldest and largest park in the system, enjoying a stunning landscape of deciduous trees and rolling green hills. The 18-hole golf course was opened in 1936. Enclosed by abundant trees, the course is scenic to say the least. The peacefully secluded atmosphere provides an ideal round of golf. The layout boasts a "sporty" design that is challenging but playable. The fairways are lined with trees and strategically placed bunkers frame the well manicured greens. There is the occasional water hazard one a few holes but water does not pose a major threat. Petrifying Springs is not the most formidable test, but it is great for a casual round with a spectacular setting. The golf course is also one of the area's better values.

Hot and Swampy Columbus Day

I play Pets every Columbus day. A wonderful old school track. Read my review from last year. Nets to warm up small practice area and a really cool old school clubhouse with grill. Go to wisconsingolf.com for deals. $35 w/cart including a Spotted Cow draft and brat? Can't go wrong here. With all the rain course was really wet (cart path only) but was in tremendous shape....best I've seen in several years. They had not aerated yet and the greens were rolling decently. I'd call and check to make sure they haven't aerated and if they have wait till next year. A very pretty fun routing. Play it!

Pet Springs didn’t disappoint

This is the second time I played this course. It is well maintained, have a decent club house, newer carts and is very picturesque, especially on the back nine. The course is a park district course and is very well maintained. Fairways were very nice as well as most of the greens. A few very minor rough spots on the greens but nothing to prevent play.

The course is relatively short overall but the condition of it was great. It’s a very pleasing course to admire, mature and challenging at times. Wonderful accent to Pet Springs Park, very good value for the greens fee. I will play here again and again. The town of Kenosha has done a nice job with this little gem.

A Breeze

Another comfortable breezy day at Pet’s before summer temps show up. Fairways in very good condition and greens in very good condition. As always, do not get above the hole on 9 or 18.

Nice course, pretty setting.

Good course to test your skills even though it's short. Some easy holes to make up shots and some to challenge you. Greens are nice. Course is a good value for what you get.

Short but good lay out

Other than the distance being only 5900 yards was a nice course. Playing without course knowledge was tough...not knowing water and some hole positions, but was a quality course. Next time I am back in Kenosha I will visit again.

Good Old School Value Course

We play Pets every Columbus Day. We had our best weather in years and the colors while muted are starting to pop. It's a nice old school parkland track and it's very well maintained...best shape I've seen it in late season in several years. The greens were aerated and were a tad bumpy but very playable. You need some local knowledge to attack this track....lots of hills and dales....the 1st two holes are short and sporty but the finishing three holes are brutes. I always enjoy Pets....you do have some blind shots but not too many. We had some really difficult pin positions this day and some of the greens have severe back to front slope in them so your short game will be tested. No range they do a have a small practice area but this year a net with mat was set up. Great grill and old school state park clubhouse. Always a solid 3.75 stars and worth a play twice a year....4 stars plus yesterday.
