Default Milwaukee Recommendations

I've been spending a bit of time in Milwaukee for work lately and wanted to get some course recommendations. I've played Estabrook (not bad), Brown Deer (loved it) and Dretzka (loved it) so far. I was eyeballing Root River as a possibility for this week's trip, any others I should consider?

Not exactly in Milwaukee, but these are close enough and worth the drive: Grey and Red Fox with Silver Fox just down the road.

The UW-Parkside course is a solid option as well.

If you loved Brown Deer and Dretzka, you will love Root River. (Dretzka was my favorite when i lived there, my review says why)

UW Parkside is worth the drive, and it actually has 2 courses, the lovely technical 18-holes on campus, and the 21 hole "Orchid" course thats more rough-cut, longer prairie course with some par 4s.

If you are willing to drive a little farther, Zobel Park in Green Lake is excellent, as is Bird's Ruins in Marshall (just east of Madison, which has several nice courses, with more terrain than Milwaukee)

Have NOT played Red or Grey Fox, but I've heard good things. I have reviewed a bunch of WI (and NE-IL and NW-IN) courses if you want to go further away from Milwaukee. Hope you realzie how lucky you are, you are surrounded LOOOOOOOTS of good options.

Stoney Creek DGC! The reviews are mostly from when it was a 9 hole course. They installed the back 9 last year and it is impressive! Still a work in progress but definitely worth a trip 30 minutes north of MKE.

Rolling ridge, winter park and Manitowoc are a good day trip.

Heritage trails is remodeled and is awesome. About 15 minutes north west of Dretzka. Avoid dineen. Dretzka has leagues on Tuesday, Heritage on Thursday. Then go back and play Brown Deer again.

Root River has become a nice course. Stoney Creek and Silver Fox are also a lot of fun to play. I haven't been to the Grey and Red Fox since they were logging to see how they are now but they were nice in the past. Brown Deer is definitely a fun place and my favorite Milwaukee course. Others I stated are not in Milwaukee.

You could always take the hr and 10 min drive to Fairfield in Illinois...a true championship course and well worth the drive. Just get there early.

Heritage is mostly open and kinda boring. If you're going north, Stoney Creek is the spot. Grey Fox and Silver Fox are both fun spins.

Many other solid options listed above that are farther away. But yeah, Brown Deer is awesome, especially when the baskets are in the longs.

This. Go to Fredonia and play this. On the way up you could play a nice 9 hole in Grafton, Lime Kiln. Then go 5 miles more north to Tendick in Saukville, then a couple miles more to Stoney Creek. Nice day trip.
