Well you should try it in the spring 

thanks I will put that on my list of courses to play. I used to play golf every summer with a cancer card that gave discounts on 30 wisconsin courses and we would travel all over wisconsin. It was really fun.

Actually there are several great courses in a small area here. Turtle back up in rice lake is nice and voyager village country club  near spooner is very nice. And I’m sure there are other recommendations others will make. A person can hit a few in a weekend and not venture more than 20+ miles from there hotel

I play weekends just in the border from the Twin Cities all over around highway 94 north and south an hour each way LOTS of great courses, I can provide a list.  and even farther up north like Spooner and Turtleback as someone mentioned.  Siren National is a real gem.  Cumberland and Turtleback are nice.  Not impressed with Spooner.  I plan to drive a lot more and find more new courses to play.

1. Troy Burne

2. Turtleback

3. New Richmond

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

I should have a golf weekend to get over to Wisconsin some time, but there's enough good courses near me that I haven't been to that I probably should knock those out first...

yes, you usually do not have to travel far to find good courses

Yeah, I'm within an hour of two courses that bounce on and off Golf Digest's top 100 public courses in the nation, have only played one of them (this year) and look to play the other probably next year.  Also playing three of the top 100 by taking a four hour golf weekend trip with a couple of buddies this weekend (Wilderness at Fortune Bay tomorrow!)

Going to be awhile for me as well. I’m dealing with a sore left rotator cuff issue in my left shoulder area. Blame it on pull starting a snow blower that refused to start. 

 

I had my swing trainer whip ball device out in the back yard and I had to let go with my left hand just past the bottom of the swing. Probably going to scare some people on the driving range if I have to do this while hitting a ball.

    • I played the Elks Country Club near Portsmouth, OH for the first time today. It's an old Donald Ross design that while it is not kept in destination course condition, it is easily the best course I have played in SE Ohio. It's a low bar, but the economy has forgotten most of the area and it  just can't support high enough greens fees to maintain the course any better.  I paid $30 to ride 18 today at 1PM. My driver miss today was a straight pull, which I prefer over the usual slice that I fight. On the the par 4 #6 I pulled my driver near the #2 tee box, leaving me about 180 yards to the green with a line of trees between me and the green that I was too close to to go over them. For the first time in my life I intentionally hit a fade/slice that traveled parallel to the line of trees before turning right through an opening in the trees and rolling up to about 12 feet from the pin.  I drained the putt for my only birdie of the day.
    • The golf gods giveth; the golf gods taketh!   Been there done that.   I head back to the range to work on my game.   
    • Hello fellow golfers! Here is my predicament; within seven days and on the same course: Tuesday: Scored 88 (thanks to consistent iron shots, but OB driver) Friday: Scored 84 (best score ever; great iron game and improved putting) Monday: Complete disaster, and I stopped counting at 110. - could not hit a single iron shot (iron is usually my strength) - either hit thin or fat shots that barely made it a few feet - I even hit the SW so badly that it directed the ball sideways and hit the cart It could be that I was overthinking after I hit my best ever score? Maybe I put myself under pressure to score even better than in the last game? I tried several adjustments, however it only got worse. Side Note: I was on vacation last week and was not looking forward to being back at work on Monday. I felt a bit stiff from the Friday game and did not sleep enough from Sunday to Monday. Has this ever happened to you, and what did you do? Did you take a week off from golf or did you review your swing (video)? Thank you, Nave
    • 6 or 7 iron?   I guess it kind of depends on what club is versatile for you.   You could have anything from pitch shots to full on shots to get back into play.   Maybe whatever you would use in a one club tournament?
    • Which is why @iacas and TST instructors in general recommend priority pieces. This could really screw someone up who’s hip rotation wasn’t a priority piece or who’s hand/wrists movements were. I vote D-. Not an F purely because of his enthusiasm…lol.
