This new layout is absolutely horrendous. Borderline unplayable unless you just want to make up your own holes as you go. Where did 13-18 go??

Sinnissippi is a beautiful well manicured park with a scenic view overlooking the Rock River. The majority of course plays underneath the shade of large trees. The front 9 features some nice elevation changes. The back 9 is rather flat and long. The new 9 is a combination of flat and elevation changes, all with shade trees. The natural land offers rollers paradise. Multiple pins on each hole offer a wide variety. Pins are often changed.

A driving range is located past the tee pad for hole 11 (when walking from parking lot). Two concrete tee pads can be found along the left field base line of ball field, with four baskets placed at 175, 250, 325, and 400 feet.

Plenty of parking inside the park near hole 1. Kiosk at hole 1.
