|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.|

|Review by: Larry S.||This is the one of oldest golf courses in Waukesha County and is a very pleasant golfing experience - if you're not looking for an extreme challenge.
The 9-hole layout features many large, statuesque oak trees (absolutely beautiful in the fall) that come into play on many of the holes. The greens are kind of small and somewhat undulating, which makes putting a challenging if you don't know where to place your approach shots. Water comes into play on two of the holes and the fairways are fairly flat. The overall condition of the course is very acceptable, although not spectacular.
The real treat of this course is the laid back atmosphere that is acceptable for both experience players as well as high handicappers. Iíve golfed there many times and the people have always been friendly and patient.
For the price, itís a very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
