Krooked Kreek Golf Club has a scenic location nestled between the bluffs of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and the glacial eskers of western Wisconsin. The aptly named course has a creek that zigzags haphazardly across the landscape. The golf course was opened as a nine-hole course in 1990 and the back nine was added five years later. The front nine sprawls across mostly flat terrain and the generous greens offer some rooms for error, but you'll have to be careful because the layout gets tougher on the back nine. The greens are much smaller on the back side and they are much more undulating, making accuracy and thoughtful course management the key to a good score. Wetlands come into play on 11 holes at Krooked Kreek Golf Club, and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout.

Sandy greens

Greens were just aerated sometime in the last days to a week ago. Didn't know they were done. No notice of being done. Other than that I enjoy making the trip to play the course. always friendly staff and course is well kept up. will try to get out to course another time before end of year. Would give greens a couple of weeks to heal up.

A nice course.

This is a shorter course, which will force (allow??) you to leave the driver in the bag on multiple par 4s. Instead, this is a position-based course, where a 3 iron followed by a 7 iron is the most logical path to the green. The deer flies were out in force, but the course has taken measures to deal with the pests. I do recommend bug spray and or a hat when playing.

Our day at Krooked Kreek

It has been a few years since I have played Krooked Kreek and I didn't know what to expect. When we arrived the staff was very friendly both in the clubhouse and on the course which always makes the experience better. The course itself is interesting to say the least. The creek that winds through most of the front 9 provides nice scenery but also a lot of quirky golf holes. A few blind tee shots and a lot of very undulating greens make this course a challenge. Then you get to the back 9....Holes 11-13 are something else. 11 is a very short par 4 requiring less than drive to setup a short approach to a near-impossible green surrounded by trouble. 12 is a short, scenic par 3 and then 13 is just crazy. A short par 5 that starts with a tight tee shot (hazard left, OB right) and then if your drive isn't perfectly positioned you are playing a layup (usually blind) to get past the trouble at the corner only to finish with another wild green. 14-18 settle down and present a decent, fun finish to your round. The course was in average shape, the greens rolled ok but the fairways were a bit shaggy. Given the value, the course condition was on par.
After the round the staff was great while we snacked and had a few post-round beverages.
