I am down in south central WI (Brodhead).  Typically play Bass Creek (9-holer in Footville), nicely maintained and close.  Great leagues and friendly people.  I am signed up for five of the WSGA Senior Tour events so will be playing some higher end courses which should be fun and challenging.  Just waiting for this weather to blow through, at least it's Masters weekend so I can get my golf fix from that!

Still working with my left rotator cuff issues. Then to add insult to injury I got an email from Kettle Hills for a free round of golf on my birthday, argh. I just took the orange whip trainer out to the back yard and gave it two easy swings and there is no way that I could swing a club to hit a ball right now.

 

I’m thinking I’ll bring the 5-iron and shag bag of balls to work next week and spend my lunchtime at Oakwood’s free range to see how the left shoulder does hitting balls. Then mid-week I’ll call the course and ask about single walk-on for my round of golf on a Friday. Might be worth it just to walk 18 holes and practice my short game.

 

Life goes on.

Local range was closed today so I stopped at a vacant business and whacked a few found golfballs into the woods between the business park and the golf course. Arm/shoulder still hurts and I was hitting way fat on the ball, but I think I’ll manage so I heading to Kettle Hills on Friday. Should be interesting (and ugly) since I didn’t play at all last year apart from some range time, but it will still be good to get back onto a golf course.

I find Troy overrated.  New Richmond is a nice traditional type course.

Here's a list from another thread - it's a little out dated, I could add more - sorry some of these spill over into MN

Top Level Courses:

  • Troy Burne (played it, very nice)
  • StoneRidge (haven't played it, heard it's also top)
  • White Eagle (my favorite)
  • St Croix National (my other favorite - difficult, lots of different challenges, elevation changes)

very nice courses:

  • Siren National
  • Cumberland
  • Turtleback
  • Logger's Trail
  • Prestwick
  • Eagle Valley
  • River Falls
  • Clifton Highlands
  • New Richmond
  • Bristol Ridge
  • River Oaks
  • Oak Marsh
  • Mississippi Highlands

Playable Averageish or easy or simply just a goat/dog track but fun and cheap

  • Pheasant Hills
  • Badlands
  • Amery
  • Clifton Hollow
  • Spring Valley
  • Kilkarney
  • Hammond Town course (9 hole, but good for a quick few)
  • St Croix nat

Maybe add some towns to the courses. It would be helpful

Never a full list - I just haven't gotten that far east yet...or north.  there's a lot, those were just ones I'd gotten to.

You can't really swing a dead cat over there and not hit a bunch of courses.

Hello, just waking up this thread a little.

I did not play one round of golf last year and barely hit any golf balls due to the pandemic and other things.

I'm hoping to get a few rounds in this year.

That's all I've got to say so far for the year 2021.

Hoping that things improve this year.
