First, it should be mentioned, the entire Brighton Dale Links complex lies immediately North (across Hwy.142) from Bong State Recreational Area. As well, there is an immediately adjacent picnic area (Brighton Dale Park) with playground, ball diamonds, and trails in a wooded area with pond. I was quite impressed by this Kenosha County complex of courses. Personally, it feels more like a much pricier country club.

Red Pines is the 9-hole course, north of the clubhouse (and the two 18-hole options). The first three fairways take you off through the woods. Sand traps flank nearly every green. There is a bit more variety of elevation here (as opposed to the 18-hole courses, Blue Spruce and White Birch): #1 tees down into a fairway below, #8 has a decided side-slope pitch as well as some rise, and #9 tees from elevated site, across a corner of a huge pond, to a green upslope from the water. Fairways are a good mix of straight, slight doglegs, and the aforementioned #8 which hooks around the backside of the pond/lake. The only place the outside intrudes is the green on #3 and the #4 tee, which back to CTH.Bb (but that is much less traffic then the other courses suffer as they near state highways).

Between this and the two 18-hole courses, you could spend a good couple days here enjoying all there is to offer.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles,Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
