Featured Golf Course Review:
Pine Ridge Golf Club -- Hilly and Woodsy
Review by: Perry Thorvig This ten year old course has some very beautiful holes. Unfortunately, the course if virtually unwalkable except by the most hearty golfer. It requires a cart. Some of the holes are very difficult. Number 8 requires your tee shot to be in a very small diameter circle in order to have a chance of hitting the green on your next shot. Number 2 requires a perfect first and second shot to just reach the green. The fairways are very tight and a lot of balls can be lost. There are some very rewarding holes too. Par 4 number 14 can be reached by the big hitter. The dogleg on number 13 can also be cut by the golfer who can hit a high tee shot.

Swan Lake Country Club -- Birch Tree Trouble
Review by: Mike Andreas A medium difficulty course with several fairways lined with about a zillion birch trees. If you put it in the birch forest, count on punching out a short iron (maybe). Hit the tall pine beer trees on number 1, 7, or 8 and it costs you. Nice folks at this course. Got my first eagle there about 41 years ago, but then it was a par four, now it's a par three because the highway took some of the fairway.

Shortcoming: some bumpy fairways. Strong points, drains well, good small greens of the old fashioned variety.
