Justin Trails in Sparta is nice. They have 2 eighteen hole courses, but I only played one of them.

Nice blend of holes, the couse I didnt play is apparently pretty long.

I believe the nordic mountain course is at nordic mountain the sky place in Wautoma(sp?). I have not been there but I have friends that have been there and rumor has it that there is a lot of elevation there.

The Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) in Cleveland has a pretty nice course on campus. The tees are only woodchips, but the baskets are Mach 5, and it's a super fun course. They did an excellent job using the existing terrain and trees, and wind is almost always a factor. I would highly recommend playing if you're in the area.

FYI; I called the number for the Burr Oaks DGC in Green Lakes and it seems like quite the hassel to get in there to play.

It's private, they have no tees or tee signs, they use the same basket for multiple holes, and the only time you can play is when they're up there for the weekends (which is sporadic). However, if you do get the urge, I was told to call ahead on a Thursday or Friday to see IF they'll be up there for the weekend.

Brown Deer is DA BOMB! Tendick is also a fun course. But my favorite that I've played in Wisconsin is Brown Deer and Dretzka Original.

Brown Deer is also my favorite course in SE WI.

Its always fun playing Dineen, Dretzka, and Brown Deer in a day :)



My favorite 9'er in the area would HAVE to be Harnischfeger Park, located about 7 miles northwest of Oconomowoc. They have a series of 4 wooded holes that are absolutely phenomenal. Id recommend it to anyone! Warning; You will not se another soul there, but you will encounter hoards of mosquitos. SO bring spray, or you wont even be able to play.










QUestion to you guys; Is Baraboo Lions DGC worth an exclusive 2 hour drive?

I love this course, only a 10 minute drive. It does get very soggy after rain and the mosquitos are very thick but worth it!

I have a feeling that it may be a few weeks before it dries out enough to play. #2 tee and basket area was never fully dried out this spring..... Im sure it will be damn near unplayable for at least a few more weeks after the rains we had this past weekend :(

All of my nearby courses are flooded out at this point.

I'd say yes. I really like the barbaoo course. its rarely busy and by busy I mean 4 or 5 other groups on the course. Make sure you go when its not wet. The only downfall of the course is the rubber teepads that can get slippery if wet.
