The Tailings

Course conditions:

  • Unplayable

  • Decent
  • Good
  • Perfect

Course plays along the Iron River and up and down some beautiful and extreme hillsides and former mining area sloping down to the river. Very gorgeous setting.

Offers very tight wooded corridors, uphill, downhill, throwing along and also across the Iron River, and a great balance of shot selection.

SSA estimated at 50. Very tough course with completely unforgiving rough.
