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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Even with all the rain in the area over the last 2-3 weeks, the course was in very good condition. However the pace of play was horrible. After waiting for almost every shot, when we arrived at the ninth (par 5) tee, there were five groups waiting to tee off. This after another par 5 on the previous hole. Isn't this the rangers job to see this doesn't happen?
