Silver Spring Golf & Banquet Center in Menomonee Falls boasts 36 holes of championship golf. Opened in 1986, the Island Course is the original course that was later joined by the equally challenging Falls Course in 1995. The Falls Course, formerly known as the East Course, is characterized by the abundance of both sand and water. Accuracy is essential in order to maneuver past the numerous ponds and strategically placed bunkers. It is considerably shorter than the Island Course, but don't underestimate this course. The layout offers a good balance of challenges while also being playable for a wide range of skill levels. In addition to the two golf courses, Silver Spring also has a comprehensive facility that includes a two-tiered driving range and an expansive putting green.

Too many mosquitos, but good otherwise

My friend and I played at the wrong time. Humidity was kind of high and mosquitoes were everywhere. I wanted to leave asap because of them. If there were no bugs out it would have been 100% more enjoyable.

Hidden Gem

My wife and were on a week vacation in the Milwaukee and were looking for a course we have never played before. Got a great deal on golfnow.com and headed to The Falls Course at Silver Spring. What a wonderful surprise. 18 challenging wooded holes with lots of water. Don't let the lack of length make you think this is an easy course. Plenty of forced layups or LONG carries and a lot of target golf on the short holes. Excellent condition and I recommend it for golfers of all skill levels

Course is in Great Shape

The greens were well groomed, fairways also. Try to stay in fairway, rough is very thick grass. Busy but no waiting to hit.

The Falls at Silver Spring

I have played this course alot. For my skill level this is a course that I can score on. The front is shorter but with water on or adjacent to most holes. The 9th is a long uphill hole. The greens are good, but previous players are horrible at fixing divot marks. The back is longer again with water on or adjacent. The 15th is the classic "risk/reward" tee shot over trees on the dogleg right to cut off 40-50 yards of distance. This particular round (and I am about a 26 hdcp) I had 10, yes 10, opportunities at birdies and thought I was unable to convert on any of them, I shot my lowest round of the year (87).

Short game rewarding

Distance makes this course very friendly to the senior player or the 20 handicappers. The greens are in great shape with slower readable putts. The traps tend to be firm to hard and something to be avoided. The amount of ponds and streams add the risk/reward factor to half of the holes. The front nine has eight very reachable greens for the shorter driver. The back nine needs a good deal more length off the tees. The par is 71. It's in great shape for a public course and well worth the yearly membership fees.

Slow play

Play this course so much that I should really just become a member for the $$. However, Golf Now has been a pretty good tool to get the deals. This outing, I joined a threesome as I was solo. Played up till 9 (even though payed for 18) due to the fact it took 3 hours to play the front! HOWEVER. When I left I mentioned this to the course attendant/pro working in the clubhouse and he addressed it immediatley to my satisfaction. Even the cart gal Shelly made sure I was taken care of. To not be a member but get taken care of as if I was..pleased me greatly. I have always liked playing this course and even though its not the nicest in the area, love it and love the people. Will continue to go back!!

Very scenic course.

Tee boxes on most holes are not very well maintained. We played on a super hot day and there were no cart girls/guys on the course.

A good weekday workout and a good value.

The course was interesting, and a few holes were challenging, but overall, the course was average. The pace of play was slow due to some very casual weekday golfers. I had to skip one hole as a slow 3-some did not want me to play through, but then I was able to play at a reasonable pace. Par 3's are fair and challenging. Par 5's are makeable pars. Par 4's are mostly opportunities for birdies.
