@cipher and @jakester , whenever you guys are ready to come up north and play Big Fish, let me know.  A Pete Dye design.

I have actually not played there, and it looks relatively inexpensive.  Should easily offset the cost of your gas to get up here.

Hayward is about an hour away from me.  I wish it was closer.  I was just looking on their website, and they have a twilight membership for only $300!!  I could play a lot more golf for that.

That course looks awesome! Too bad it's 6.0 hours away from me! That would mean I would have to be leave Thursday morning, play 18 holes at Lawsonia, then drive up there, sleep, play Big Fish on Friday, then leave after golf, stay over night somewhere and play Northern Bay on Saturday then drive to the Dells on Sunday morning, play Wild Rock then head back home after.......

Thats like 5 and a half for me as well. Thats a little far for 18 holes.

I did not realize Blackwolf Run was his design.  I have heard that is pretty tough.
