Excluding the big boys in the state, here’s my top 3 (that haven’t already been mentioned)
- Hunter’s Glen (Crivitz)
- The Creeks at Ivy Acres (Hortonville)
- Big Fish (Hayward)
Hunter’s Glen is a bit of a sentimental favorite, because it’s near our families’ cabin we play there often. It’s a Rick Jacobsen design, built mostly on sand so it usually plays firm and fast. Not the most difficult or visually appealing course, but if you’re in the area it’s worth playing.
The Creeks used to be called Eagle Creek until new owners took over a couple years ago. I’ve only been out to play it once since it changed hands. I know they were planning a lot of renovation work so I heard conditions were a bit rough for much of last season. I’ll definitely get out there at least once this year.
I’ve only played Big Fish once, and it was in fall when the leaves where changing colors which probably effects my memories of playing there. I can remember a hard, fun and fair golf course with a solid variety of holes and some gorgeous scenery. Can’t ask for much more than that.
