The Wilds Course Reviews

Reviewed by: Jason Utecht - Arden Hills, MN. Jason shots in the 70s.
Review Summary: I don't play the Wilds a lot and after going there just recently, there really wasn't anything making me want to go back.
Conditions: I thought the course conditions were poor for the price you had to pay. Greens were below average but the fairways and tee boxes were good.
Scenery: Your standard scenery. A good mix of wildlife and homes.
Layout: I've always liked the hole layout at the Wilds. Some really cool holes to test your game (6/11/14/18).
Services: Very friendly staff and service

Review Summary: Hmmm, doesn't quite live up to the hype, or the steep price. A better than average course but there are others out there that are similar at half the price.
Conditions: Pretty good conditions throughout the fairways, with fair rough. The greens were in pretty rough shape. Many ball marks that were not fixed. Can't blame the course for this, just ignorant golfers.
Scenery: Ok scenery. I'm not into looking at house's on the golf course and there are plenty of them here. Would be much better in a country setting.
Layout: Decent layout, a variety of holes that challenge every part of your game. Some long par 4's, some short ones. The same with the par 5's and 3's. I like that aspect of the course. It doesn't get boring.
Services: Good service, nice starter and a nice driving range.
