Mead is the small one you played. It was originally 18 and the first course in the area. Yulga is a first rate example of a course with three great sets of tees; allowing for varied levels of play. It is a very flat course though. Standing Rocks is probably the gem of the area. Make sure you print out whatever info is available though; as they have 36+ holes in the ground and various layouts are in at various times. Standing Rocks can therefore be somewhat difficult to navigate. It's not a long course, but nice elevation and woods. Tourney layout there is very nice; and it's a well known and liked tourney, if you happen to be in the area at the right time. Eau Pleine, which is a bit north of Stevens Point is perhaps my favorite. Nice dual tees and a good course. Some given it a tough time for being a bit of a "tall grass off the fairways" style of course.

I enjoyed yulga. Is the extra drive to eye pleine worth it instead of checking out standing rocks? The guys go dging while the ladies and kids swim in the pool, so time is a little issue. Hopefully we can check them all out, but which would you do first?

Eau Pleine is longer, from the long tees. Standing Rocks is a classic old school design...with one of the newer layouts incorporating some of the tourney design elements and having some longer holes. If you're a big arm, Eau Pleine would be your choice, but it is a bit in nowhere land and a bit of a drive. Standing Rocks is also pay to play; $3 I think; could be $5. Standing Rocks is beautiful with the rocks and such; as it is closer, I would play there first.
