Coachman's Golf Resort - White/Blue
Coachman's Golf Club is home to three championship nines, providing golfers with three different 18-hole combinations to choose from. The club is just southeast of Madison but it feels much farther thanks to the surrounding acres of wooded hills. The nines: the Red, White, and Blue, boast a scenic landscape covered with mature oaks and willow trees. Although they are a good test, the golf courses were designed to appeal to players of all skill levels from high handicappers to scratch golfers. The White/Blue combination combines the two longest nines. Although the Blue Course was added 20 years after the White nine was built, it is an excellent complement to the older course. In addition to the trees that line the fairways and frame the greens, there are also tricky water hazards coming into play that will keep even the most experienced players on their toes.

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.
