Played in first in 1999 (114 w/12 lost balls) and in 2001(93) with 2007(84) being the last time. Each time the course was in top shelf condition. Other than picking the right tees for your Hcp you won't play a track closer to what the Pro's must see on a daily basis. True test of where your game is and real yardage carry is MOST importian to the landing zones. Never have i seen so much water on 18 holes in my life. Truly one of Must Play tracks that is affordable and getting a taste of where your A game is. Looking forward to returning someday soon w/ my new A game.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area

The River course is a beautiful woodland course with a good variety of holes, many of which run alongside the Sheboygan River. To me one of the marks of a great course is how many holes you can remeber when you get home. I can remember all 18 here. This is a link to my photos of the River course: http://sports.webshots.com/album/563361855brlTQx

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
