Bay Ridge Golf Course -- Fun, but challenging
Review by: Gr8 Golfer Bay Ridge is a great course for the mid handicapper and is a lot of fun for higher handicappers as well. The course is not terribly short, but a long hitter would not find much of a challenge at bay ridge. The greens are elevated on a number of holes, and water comes into play on two consecutive holes. The signature hole is the second, which is a 236 yard uphill par three which plays up to 240 if the wind is right. The tee shot must split two sets of trees on either side of the green, not leaving a lot of room for error. The pro shop is staffed by friendly people and its low profile design creates a cozy, relaxing setting.

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.
