Five ponds spread throughout the course, two of which are involved with area restocking programs for trout and walleye, further accentuate the course.

There is little to no information for distances. Many blind shots where you don't know how far rot the dogleg. One green on a par three is hidden from view by overgrown brush, such that you can see only the top of the flag. Rough greens too.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area
