Old Parkland with incredibly small greens

This is by far the most difficult 121 slope 6100 yd course I've ever experienced. Built in 1912 the folks are friendly and the overall layout is interesting but the greens are so small it's a complete crap shoot to get on in regulation. The greens don't hold and you have bounce in your shot and hope. Has a range and Wisconsin bar/older clubhouse. Food I'm told is average.

Played the white tees and it just wasn't a very fun round - next time we'll try the short tees in hopes we might have a few more putts for birdie. The course simply taxes you throughout as minor errors in line or distance are severely penal. 5th hole is a 223 yard slightly uphill postage stamp par 3 with trap in front of most of it. The 6th thru 8th holes are incredibly tight with huge tree encroachment issues. The severely uphill Par 3 ninth to another postage stamp almost impossible to prox 156 yds playing around 180. The 12th is a similar significantly uphill Par 3 of 170 playing around 195. 17th another 200 yard plus 3 on this Par 71 - 6 3's and 5 5's with two of those over 540. Many of the approach shots are uphill to a punched up green so small anything on the putting surface you have a decent chance of making or perhaps getting an up and down. Short chips shots have to be perfectly struck if you short side or are downhill to stay on the surface. A par on almost any hole seems like a feat to be savored. Course itself is in very decent shape greens roll fairly true - several with significant slope with old school nuances. If they blew up all the greens and doubled their size it would a fairer test.....completely way too exacting. Difficult to drive your cart even in some fairways with many humps and bumps.

Apologies Twin Lakes but It just gets old trying to get up and down for par almost every hole. A very pretty nice long uphill 380 playing 400 plus par four finisher....again to a green up on hillock far too small. My playing partner was amazed at how costly their beverages were.....almost $25 for a non import six pack pre tip? Seems a tad over the top - course was virtually empty on a perfect mid afternoon so that's probably how they make up for it....and was very empty the next day when we drove by at 11am.

I'll allow 3 stars and I will definitely return now that I know what I'm getting into - Twin Lakes is a most interesting old schooler - very different very exacting test than what you're normally used to.

Average player's course

Small greens that don't stick shots very well does not help this course, but with fun holes, a good environment, and a good wedding hall, I recommend looking into it, especially is you are an average golfer looking for a fun round.
