Milwaukee, Wisconsin?
« on: July 19, 2009, 02:45:57 PM »
I have to head up to Milwaukee this week for work and was looking at the pdga site to find some courses up there.  It looks like there are a dozen with 20 miles and I wasn't sure if anyone had played up there and had suggestions?  I was leaning towards trying to get to Dineen Park, Valley View Park, Brown Deer Park, and Dretzka Park.  It sounds like a couple of those were used during the 2007 amateur worlds.  Just looking for recommedations if anyone has played up in that neck of the woods before.  Thanks!

Dineen, Dretzka and Brown Deer were used for 07 Worlds.  Dineen is an old par 3 ball golf course not much challenge or excitement.  Brown Deer is a wooded and technical, strokes can creep up fast, but it is a pretty park and course.  Dretzka is a nice course that seems to get a lot of play.  Brown Deer and Dineen (I think) were just planted for Worlds so they may have changed and play differently two years later.

Last summer when I was up in WI with Erin to see her side of the family I got a chance to play Dretzka.  It is definitely worth playing.  I also heard good things about Brown Deer but it was closed for a ball golf tourney the weekend I was there. 
Put down your shiny new speedy driver and learn to throw the Roc!

Brown Deer and Dredtzka are best and are two very good courses.  Lime Kiln Park, Grafton, is a very good nine.  Final hole at Lime Kiln plays up to 4 75 foot tall lime kilns; interesting feature of type rarely seen.  2,899 long tees for Lime Kiln.  Valley View o.k.; fairly short; 4,371 long tees; big pinewood derby hill/track on site.  Dineen o.k. 6,165 from long tees; fairly open.  Village Park in Sussex similar 5,565. Tendick Park a nice 18 that gets better every time I go there.  Local club doing nice job with that one.  More wooded; 6,282 feet.    A little west of milwaukee is a very nice nine in Waterloo; Fireman's Park; 2,900 feet.  Good water shot on last hole.  Near that one in Watertown, is a nice 18, Rock River DGC 6,099 feet.  New back nine especially nice.   IMOH; courses in order that I would play in town:  1. Tie between Dredtzka and Brown Deer.  3. Grafton, Lime Kiln Park  4.  Tendick Nature Area.  The other two west of Milwaukee are also worth a day if possible.  There are no real dogs amongst the 20 possible in area.  Erin Go Braugh Park, Spassland and Sports Complex probably least attractive of whole bunch.

or screw it and head to Madison.....you will not be upset as all the courses there are worth playing, but play Vallata Ast (?sp) off 94 for sure, its worth the $5 to get a daily parking pass, and only like 2 hours away.
