Great course , challenging & pace of play was nice.
Great, tough, beautiful course. Paid with a hot deal. Otherwise very pricey. But an excellent course.
Always enjoy this course - just keep the greens acceptable to good shots - not too hard.
Should have disclosed airation
I really like this course and the facility. I just wish they’d disclosed that the green had been airated last week. Putting was kind of a joke.
Solid course and location
I got to play on a crazy windy day, teeing off after work and racing daylight, so I was trucking around trying to finish (not taking any pix this day).
I like the place, an Arthur Hills design, who has some nice places to his credit. (I highly recommend Washington County Golf in Wisconsin). Conditions are very consistent - I would have been more inclined to give 5 stars (and probably would later in the year) but the greens had been punched. I know this is a necessary thing, but no one told me during my visit that I'd be encountering this; I do think they should. Otherwise, a lot of big greens with some undulation (slowed by rain, punch today). Tee boxes are mostly flat and in good condition, and the fairways and rough are very fully-grassed. They've created some fun elevations changes, which I enjoyed. I only hit 2 bunkers, and it may be a function of this time of year, but they were a bit weak - both times they seemed thin on sand. Maybe the rain did this; it was a minor detraction. The par 5s are very gettable from the white tees, so that's a good chance to score. A few holes are much more fun the second time around, 6, 7 and 11, all position tee shot holes, are fun. The par 3s had serious wind a few times, which made them harder than they really are; outside of that they're pretty tame.
I like 17, a great driving hole and design, but 18 is kinda weak to finish your day. A lot of very friendly rough around here, and had I not been playing into a 3 club wind (seriously!!), I could have scored 5-8 shots better, but I got out of there in 2.5hrs and shot 84, so no real complaints.
Overall a very solid facility, if not a stunner in design. I find them very consistent on conditioning (which can't be overlooked) and would definitely be good returning or playing here regularly if I lived here.
