Best course around

Being an below average golfer my opinion might not mean much, but this course was hands down one of the best courses I’ve ever played in the surrounding Milwaukee area. I’ll be back there ASAP. Someone give those grounds keepers a raise.

Great day for golf

Johnson Park played very well. The grounds crew should be commended for the course conditions. I used a hot deal to play. I played 18 holes for the price of 9. Johnson Park is in excellent condition. Fairways were well cut. Rough not too long. Greens rolled really well. Overall very impressed with course.

First time playing after the renovations

Last year (2013) this course underwent renovations to a few fairways and greens on the front nine. This was my first time on the course since the new improved areas were open. I had been a bit concerned because (during renovations) it looked as if the changes were going to make a couple holes on the course much more challenging. Fortunately, I did not find that to be the case -- the course seemed to play pretty much as before. Everything seemed in very good condition (rain/cold/wind most of June probably kept traffic down, and allowed grass to be lush). Greens all seemed quite fast, which took my partner and me a little bit to adjust to.

With occasional exceptions, the course is fairly forgiving of errant shots -- there are relatively few places with long rough, and no significant water hazards on the front nine. The back nine starts you off along the Root River, and you shoot across it on #11 and #18 (both par 3), but with the river very near the tee, it only comes into play for muffed tee shots. The course has nice variety, with a few elevated tees, a few significant uphill or downslope shots to the green, a couple good dogleg fairways . . . all in all, a great use of terrain.

Tips:
#2: Quarried rock lines a streambank behind the green; If you overshoot, your ball will funnel into it or careen off into the creek.
#4: A (new) drain lies dead-center of the fairway, hidden from view from the tees! Long-hitters should end past it, but mid-range hits may find it.
#5: A great uphill blind shot from the tee to a slight dogleg left is a bit intimidating to the novice/duffer.
#10: From the long tee, you have a super elevated shot down to the fairway, with woods encroaching from the left and the river coming into play along the right of the fairway. (Fortunately the gold and red tees drop you down to a much more straightforward tee/shot.)
#13: Consistently my bugaboo; a par 3, uphill, with green pitched toward the tee. Shots long of the pin will have you hard-pressed to keep balls missing the cup from rolling off the front of the green.
