Following a day of world-beating at Northern Bay, we figured to ourselves: The granite tees at Wild Rock play to the same length as our last round, so we should have no problems playing back tees. Bad idea. While Wild Rock may be 6,953 from the granite tees, do not compare this to any other 6,950-yard …

A 40-minute drive from the Wisconsin Dells, Arkdale is home to the most fun golf course I have ever played. Widely known as the “Replica Course,” Northern Bay features six replica holes and 12 others that should be replicated by lesser tracks.

The Anticipation of a Great Golf Weekend: Northern Bay Preview

Have you ever had a weekend planned that you were so psyched for, you could barely contain your excitement? This is one of those weekends for me. Ask the guys on my sales team, and they will probably tell you that I have not contained my excitement well at all. Tomorrow, a couple of friends and …

A 45-minute drive from Menomonee Falls, Rock River Hills is a nice course. The terrain is beautiful, with the famous Horicon marshes and lakes surrounding much of the course. The track itself is hit or miss. The greens are quick and well kept, and the sand is very nicely maintained. The layout strongly favors a fade, …
