Aerated greens were terrible

I know that greens need to be aerated in the fall but these were the worst greens I’ve ever had to putt on. The pace of play was very slow at there were two groups stacked on each tee. For the price of this course they should have a better handle on that. Of course the layout of the course is great but they have some things to clean up.

An amazing RTJ Jr., course

Had an outstanding experience on this RTJ Jr., course. It is hard to make a challenging and fun track, but this place manages to do so. Plus, the track was in excellent condition.

The green complexes were difficult, had lots of slope to them and even short putts were difficult. The fairways were lush and the tee boxes were well groomed.

The first couple holes are pretty open but the layout starts to get closer to the trees as your round goes on. The last hole on each nine is quite difficult. The ninth hole has two lakes on it and your approach shot has to curl around a lake.

The back nine has more trees close to the fairways. No. 18 is just a beast of a par 5. Your tee shot has to be a pretty big fade. For most hackers, it is almost impossible to reach in two due to a long forced carry, but the layup is also difficult. Then, your third has to carry a small creek in the front. Quite a challenging way to end the day!

Maybe we lucked out with our tee time but the place was busy but not slow. I think the course is so challenging that maybe it scares off a lot of beginners. Just a lot of difficult shots but I had a blast playing it. After my round ended, I really wanted to go right back out and try it again! It is pretty expensive but well worth it.

Beautiful and Great Condition

I don't play a lot of golf in the Midwest, but if this course is representative, I need to. Beautiful course that was in great condition. Quite a bit of rain the day before we played, but the course handled it well with the fairways remaining firm and the greens holding well. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

Had quite a bit of rain in previous 24hrs, course/greens were in great shape but majority of bunkers were mudholes. Very, very rare for this course.

Top tier public course

Beautiful course, immaculate greens. Through 18 holes in under 4 hours on a relatively busy week day. Big Lug Brewery beer/food menu in clubhouse is an excellent bonus!
