Do Not Recall (cart not included), played on Wednesday, July 2013 at 3:10 PM

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.

White Birch is the 'forward' course (nearer to the access from Hwy.75 than the Blue Spruce course). The course has many tree-lined fairways, a good assortment of ponds and sand traps. As with Blue Spruce, there is a decided lack of variety in elevation (no real elevated tees or greens that I recall), and most fairways play fairly straight, though you will find a couple slight doglegs, especially #17 (a double-dogleg with bunkers and water to contend with to boot). Trees switch from deciduous (nearer the clubhouse) to evergreen (especially flanking #13 #16). As you approach the green on #10 you may hear traffic on Hwy.75. The next two holes parallel that highway, detracting a lot from the otherwise almost 'up north wilderness' feel of this course. Traffic (this time on Hwy.142) again invades as you near the green on #14.

All in all, a fine course if you ignore (or don't mind) the few holes along busy highways (though I'll prefer to stick with Blue Spruce or 9-hole Re Pines).

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