One of the best in the area
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The course is set in a nice, quiet and well manicured park. There are multiple concrete tees on the first 11 holes with solid sized rubber mats on the last 10. The baskets are chainstars that are all in great condition and catch fantastic. The tee signs are now present on every hole. These are some of the best I've seen. They have a a nice hole map with distances from both sets of tees and an arrow showing the direction to the next tee on each one. The course is free to play which is always nice. There is a nice kiosk with the hole course map on it. There is a decent amount of elevation in play here, especially on the back half of the course. The back half is also pretty heavily wooded requiring more technical shots. There are also some tough lines to hit on the first half too but not as drastic as the back. The course is permanent which I always consider a bonus. This would be a fun tough round in the winter for sure too.
Cons: Not many. The rough is extremely thick in a few spots so be sure to really pay attention to your shots. Found a putter on hole 12 today in a pretty rough area off the fairway. A few of the holes are kind of bland. Especially the last hole. I understand it is just there to get you close to hole 1 again but it is not really necessary. It would just kind of be cooler to finish your round after the awesome 20th hole.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely a course to go out of your way to play. Almost all of the negative things in the earlier reviews have been addressed. With concrete on all holes I'd probably bump this up to a 4. It's only about 15 minutes off of I-94 so well worth the drive and not too far out of your way. Definitely worth checking out at least once and if it's been a few years since you last played I'd recommend giving it another try, you'll like the improvements.

Very Good Course
Pros: -2 Seperate 9 Hole Setups
-Front 9 Concrete pads
-Good Variety of Hole Lengths
-Good Variety of hole opsticles
-Great course design
Cons: -Back 9 grass tees (the property is owned by the school district and no permant style tees will ever be there. They are planning on gravel tees though)
-Back 9 no signs (there coming this summer)
-Some of the holes tend to retain water around them after it rains so it can geet soupy some times.
-Wish they would have different basket placements (not there fault)
-Wish there was an actual water hazard.
Other Thoughts: This is a very good course for both amatures and experienced players.
The Front 9 offer a fun and enjoyable course for players of all caliber.
The Back 9 is still fun and has a few really really long and tricky holes. But its more for people who have a few months under there belt.
All in all this is a good course and a fun one.
Plans are in the works from what I hear to add an additional 21 holes in the not too distant future, which means the Rock River DGC could be one of the premier courses in the state. But as of now I am happy with the 18.

Good, could be great
Pros: Dual tee pads on most holes.
Different hole types.
Great club that runs the course.
Cons: Dirt tee pads.
Back 9 still needs some trimming to open up the lines a bit. (hole 6 could be the best hole in the area with some trimming)
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and I really think that it can be a great course and rival anything in madison with some work. THe watertown park and rec havent been much help to us most of the work has been done by the rock river disc club.
