Thanks for the insight everybody. Looking like I'll have time for just one round this trip after work tonight (went to the Brewers game last night instead). It's down to Stoney Creek or Root River, but sounds like Stoney is the choice.

Looking around on here and elsewhere online, I don't see a course map for Stoney. Is navigation tricky out there or will I be able to find my way around?

Navigation is pretty straightforward. When you get there to the parking lot, you'll see a little kiosk area by the practice basket. Hole one starts there and throws to the hill. You work your way west along the hill on holes 1-6. 7's short tee is on the other side of the walking path (long tee is on the same side as holes 1-6). Hole 8 is the first of the newer holes and the last with a concrete tee (unless they very recently added more), and takes you into the woods. I don't think there are any next tee signs, but it is always pretty obvious which way to go back there, and there are no long walks between holes. Most holes on the back only have 1 tee, and all are natural except one rubber mat.

P.S. Watch your step - there are a lot of trip hazards here still as they work on cleaning up the fairways. And bring a disc retriever if you have one, you play over the same creek 5-6 times.

If you want a more finished/polished course, Tendick is great.

Honestly Id go to Root River, it is starting to challenge Brown Deer and Dretzka for fun and playabilty. Brown Deer and Dretzka have history behind them and are both great courses but root river is coming into the picture in a fast and big way.

Just wanted to thank everyone again for the input, ended up playing Root River and loved it, great course. Probably beat me up worse than any of the other Milwaukee courses I played.

Couldn't really find a great thread to post this in, but I played Root River for the first time today and wow. We played the long tees and it was challenging. Why does no one talk about this course? Even the reviews for it aren't great, but it was a great combination of tough wooded holes and some open bombers where you can still get into trouble if you aren't careful. That course was just as fun/challenging as the other more popular Milwaukee courses.
