I was embarrassed at the thought of having put one of the options for the poll on the state’s best par fives as a hole that is actually a par four: Blackwolf Run, River #18.
So I figured it’s time I close that one out and get it restarted with a more sensible list of options.
With 84 total votes, the readers have been heard, and the top ten par fives in the state [that were originally listed; and including one really nice par four, of course] are:
- The Bull #8
- Wild Rock #6
- Blackwolf Run, River Course #18 (par four)
- Whistling Straits, Irish Course #8
- University Ridge #16
- Lawsonia, Links Course #13
- Fire Ridge #10
- University Ridge #2
- Nagawaukee #13
- Ironwood, Callow Course #3
The next list will drop out some of the par five holes that received no votes, and will also include great new entries like Big Fish #8, Hawk’s View Como Crossings #10, The Oaks #18, Morningstar #7, the Straits course #16, and others that I didn’t even know existed at the time of my original poll posting.

Please comment on this post and let me know if there are any options that I have left out that you think should be included.
