Great Private WI Course
Pros: This course is very picturesque and private. There are a ton of great views from the hilltops and the grounds are very well kept. This is a great get away destination if you have a weekend to throw. The owners are very nice, accommodating and offer lodging and camping on site. The classic course is geared more for an intermediate/rec level player but has something for everyone. The rolling hills that the course plays on and around offer a wide variety of elevation challenges including uphill monsters, downhill bombers, cross hill roll a ways and everything in-between. There are also some tight wooded shots sprinkled in to force more accurate shot shaping.
-Great use of elevation that comes into play on all but 3 of the 18 holes. This is the best part of this course for sure.
-Nice concrete tee pads with two (most of the shorts tees are just 4x4 kickers) positions on every hole.
-Adequate signage with hole number, distance and layout.
-Some risky roll away pin positions that will make you think about laying up.
-This course is a great workout (bring water).
-The wooded holes are mostly straight but very tight and require a controlled drive.
-The course has great flow and you are never backtracking or walking long distances in between holes.
-Water comes into play on two holes but is not overly threatening.
-The course is not overly challenging but is defiantly not a pitch and putt. It is the definition of a rec course.
-Has some very unique holes at the end of the course (17 & 18) are very cool and memorable. I don't think I have ever played a hole quite like 18.
-The fairways are very well maintained and players will be punished for going in the rough on most of the holes.
-They offer a few disc to buy in the clubhouse.
-The owners are awesome.
Cons: As with all course there are some things that could be improved upon.
-Some of the holes get a bit repetitive, there are lots of wide open shots and only really bad drives will be punished.
-The rough is ROUGH on many of the holes. Lots of thorns and bramble on the wooded hole and the open holes have tall grass that will not punish you score wise but will make finding your disc a challenge. Wear jeans if the temp allows.
-All of the holes are fairly straight and you can throw any number of shots to get to the pin. I can't think of any holes that require a big hyzer or anhyzer.
-Bugs can be an issue in the summer. You will encounter all kinds of them. Nothing the owners can really do about this one so bring bug spray.
-Hole #9 plays right next to the camping area so be careful of people by their camp sites.
Other Thoughts: This course is a great time and a good warm up for the Big Brother course. If you only have a chance to play one course while at Justin Trails I would go for the Big Brother over the classic because it offers quite a bit more challenge. The $5 pay to play is well worth it because you can play two great courses for the price of one. The area around the course offers lots of other activities such as fishing, camping, hiking, parks and lots more. Warrens Wisconsin is about a half hour away and has a great indoor and outdoor water park for a great price. The scenery is beautiful in this part of Wisconsin and playing here in the fall would be absolutely amazing. I will play this course anytime I get the chance and wish I lived closer so I could get out there more often.
