Default Zobel Park - Ripon Wisconsin

Anyone in Wisconsin, do yourself a favor and get to zobel park. It isn't quite finished yet so there are no signs, but holy crap what a nice course. One of the best in the state for sure. I haven't had so much fun playing a course in forever and it looks so nice to on top of it. Get there and spread the word.

I dont have any pics and don't want to take its review virginity but it is awesome. I told mike harrington to go play it and review it so I am gonna wait for him to. I am all jacked up about it so I don't want to give it too high of a grade if I am just over reacting to it.

I have no problem giving a course its first review, however i will make sure to point out if something that looks incomplete is still expected to be completed. I know this course is still being put together (no tee signs at the very least) so I would note that in my review. Like I said it may take me 2-3 weeks to get up there . . . if the weather cooperates.

Now everyone in Central WI should hit up Lake Wazee Recreation Area (near Black River Falls) . . . although only 9 holes, it was a lot of fun and an absolutely awesome park too!

I was scheduled to meet up at Zobel last weekend with pointdisc. But, the sleet/snow/rain and the wind changed my mind. May not get out there until spring now. Spoke with the designer on the phone, and he seems very happy with it, and claimed I would want to play 2,3 or maybe even 4 rounds, once I saw it.

It made me play 2 rounds yesterday there and then it got dark, but I am skipping work to go back today and hopefully will play 3 or 4 rounds.

I wish I could skip work to play it today.

And it's in/closer to Green Lake, not Ripon

I love the hype and prospect of this course, and I'm off work, so maybe I can convince you (beside Wednesday), but I'm afraid that I'll be underwhelmed and it'll be destined for failure due to being incomplete. I try to hold off my anticipation when it comes to new courses, best to let them be finished.

Speaking of finished - something Winter Park will never be - anyone good with welding and interested in making 9 alternate pin sleeves for WP? I'll trade you for tee sign sposnorship - name your own hole.

I'm hoping for warm weather next week, sucks that Standing Rocks is closed for the season, I may just rough in some more gold tees at WP then unless someone wants to play.
