Great Start to a Guy's Weekend
We hit Big Fish on day one of a golf trip with 12 guys. They were great about slotting us into three consecutive tee times and the pace of play was really good. Under five hour for our group.
Course was in great shape and we had a blast. A fun treat to have almost two different courses between the front and back. Front plays like a links course with little danger.
Also loved the stopover at Mulligan's Pub at the turn. Good food and a great atmosphere.
We will be back!
The course is beautiful.
Great course can be challenging but fun.
Pretty close to perfection
Golfing this time of the year at a northern Wisconsin course can be challenging for a number of reasons. However yesterday's weather was pretty close to a perfect October day and Big Fish was the perfect course to golf. Although amenities were somewhat lacking we expected that just due to the time of year and it really was no problem.
Great layout---horrific condition
Love Pete Dye layouts and this is a very fair and playable golf course for everyone.
The greens were in ok condition but hard as a rock. Fixed no ball marks after hitting14/18 greens because you don't make ball marks here---the greens were that hard!!
The fairways and tee boxes were awful--especially on the back nine. In some cases I'd say 90% of the fairway was bare/burnt out. I was saddened because I was really looking forward to playing here.
I asked an employee after the round about the course conditions and they told me that the irrigation system has been broken for the past couple of years so they only water the greens. They said they get comments from people about it all the time because of it. They went on to say the front nine was in better shape because they did recently fix the irrigation on the front nine because a golf magazine was coming out to take pictures.
I'm really hoping they can pull this together because the layout is great. However the conditions were probably some of the worst I've seen. Sad. Very sad.
C'mon Big Fish........lets get together!!!
Course in better shape then last year.
Nice day! Greens rolled much more true this year.
Average at best
Greens were immaculate. The rest of the course could use some work. If we would have had to pay full price for the round I would not recommend the course. The people that we first met at the club house were very friendly and helpful. The bar/restaraunt was basically out of beer when we made the turn and the cart on the course had a very limited selection. We would golf here again with a hot deal from golf now but would never pay full price.
I booked my tee time through Golfnow.com and played Big Fish on June 11, 2016. Reservations and check-in went smoothly. Staff was courteous and friendly. The course was in very good shape. Tee boxes were in average condition. The greens rolled nicely but were very hard. Had fun, enjoyed the course and would play it again.
For the value and challenge great course!
Have played Big Fish every other week almost thru the summer and fall. Two very distinctly different 9's. Both have different challenges and degree's of difficulty. Greens are fairly beat up after a high traffic season. Course is still in great shape and a ton of fun to play.
Best Bet In Northern Wisconsin
The BEST of the BEST in Northern Wisconsin! If you like Pete Dye creations you will be at home, If you think Pete DIE is diabolical you may want to choose another course as the challenges are abound and the rewards are endless and earned! Pete Dye designed a masterpiece out of virgin farm land and thick forests to bring together a golfing experience of a lifetime! I can't wait to go back to the little town of Hayward WI and play this fabulous golf course! Where in this world can you find a Pete Dye course under a hundred bucks, the answer is the Big Fish golf course in Hayward WI!
Big fish out of water
My first time at big fish. Loved the lay out, but I felt that the course was really dry. The lies in the fairway were thin, some bare spots and in a few places the ground appeared to be cracked from the lack of water. The greens were fast, although they did not look very pretty with all the brown spots on them. The staff did say that they had just been advised to raise the mowing height a little for the fairways. The round was definitely worth the "hot deal" price I paid. Having been there once, I don't think I would go back at the full greens fee rate until it was in better shape
