Loved this course, replica holes are so cool!!! Our price was awesome at $50 for 18 holes. Great for the golfer who has never visited courses outside of Wisconsin.

Course condition and speed of greens very good. Courteous golf shop staff. The replica holes are fun to play, even though they not be exact replicas. Good enough for most of us.
