Coachman's Golf Resort - Red/White
Located just southeast of Madison, Coachman's Golf Club boasts 27 holes of golf that were carefully sculpted from the wooded hills of southern Wisconsin. The holes make up three nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. Each course has a unique character, but they were all designed with players of all skill levels in mind. The golf courses are challenging but they will appeal to low and high handicappers alike. The Red/White combination was the first 18-hole course at Coachman's, with the Red nine built in 1968 and joined by the White two years later. Stately oaks and willow trees accent the course, demanding accuracy while also providing scenery. Challenging water hazards also come into play on several holes. In addition to the three golf courses, Coachman's also offers a driving range, putting green, and chipping area.

Good value golf course
3 9 hole courses. I bit confusing where to go next. My Garmin watch had a hard time understanding where I was on the course. Good course to walk. You will get plenty of steps in if you play the blue courses
Course was inconsistent. Some greens were rolling, others were slow. The pace of play was ridiculous. 27 holes could not space this amount of people out? Guess not. Almost 5 hours for 18 holes.
Flexible and Helpful
I had booked and paid through GolfNow, which was great, but when something popped up in my day, I was able to arrive early and Coachman, although they didn't need to work with me, did. I am very thankful to their flexibility. Course from the white tees was short. Blue tees are pretty well normal. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were in great shape. Rough was adequately long and at times hid your ball from plain sight. Overall on the White and Blue course, things were great.
A course worth revisiting
Coachman's is an easy to get to golf course. It's in really good shape this year. Play is fairly easy, but there are a few holes that are more challenging with sand trap placement or water. Fairways are mostly wide. The mature trees, add to the beauty of the course. There is a small motel for small outings. The restaurant has an assortment of beverages and the food is good.
Coachmen's has improved since the last time I played a couple years ago. Greens look better. They definitely could improve on course technical aspects. They always used a blue flag when hole was placed forward, instead of red. We also found that the newly installed golf cart GPS are a great idea, but they were waay off.
A "go to" course
Coachman's is a course that has a nice mix of degree of difficulty holes for the beginner and intermdiate golfers. When I head out to golf alone, I'm happy that other golfers are friendly, sometimes inviting me to continue with their group. It's a comfortable course. Sure, it won't be chosen for a PGA tournament, but the pricing isn't going to break the bank and it's fun play. The general condition of the course is good.
