Pine Valley Golf Course -- Two stars is so much better than one
Review by: Jesse Maas I've played most of the courses in the Wausau area and, as a poor college student golfer, I'll say this is the best golf you'll get for your buck. Equally as inexpensive as the other courses in the area, but you won't find your drives and approaches in the natural hazards created by the lack of attention that so many other low-budget courses get. They have different colored flags and different tee boxes not just for show but because they've actually got big enough greens and long enough holes that one can play the course differently accordingly. A nice, long, wide open back nine with a 575-ard par five and the par 3 "signature hole". Challenging par 4's throughout the 18 that will put your decision-making and club-chosing to the test. It's one of those courses that will make you play it a few times to achieve the score that you're truly capable of. My three complaints: it gets pretty sloppy during the wet parts of the year, the front is a par 35 -which I don't like-, and the student-rate membership fee is near $700, significantly higher than its competition (although that would only apply were you a student and wanted a membership). A solid course overall, two stars over one any day of the week, any time of the year.

Highland Ridge Golf Club -- Local enthusiast
Review by: R.E. Maes I have been playing golf in the Northeast Wisconsin area for over 30 years. I have played every course in the Green Bay/DePere area and most of the courses within 50 miles of Green Bay. I have played Highland Ridge every year since it opened with just 9 holes and watched the owners develop it into a truly enjoyable golf experience. Both the front and back nine offer a variety of challenges. There are no "easy" holes, and every hole has some sort of hazards. There is a good mix of tree, sand, water, and out of bounds hazard. The water is usually just a creek that you must cross, but these creeks vary in distance from the tees, so most golfers will be challenged with shot/club selection on at least one tee. Most holes have some degree of dog leg or at least a "bend." My favorite hole is #17, a picturesque, but challenging par 3 over a pond and waterfall. Highland Ridge is not the most or least difficult course in the area. It is a great course for starters or season golfers alike.
