Wild Marsh Course Reviews


Reviewed by:
Nicky Backspin - Watertown, MN. Nicky shoots in the 70s.
Review Summary: Great course, great price. One of the best values around.
Conditions: Excellent conditions. Near perfect fairways with true and very fast, undulating greens. Probably the best conditioned public course I've played. I've got 6-7 rounds on it and it's been perfect every time.
Pace of play is perfect. Not much waiting at all.
Scenery: Nice scenery. Some houses here and there but several holes give that country feel. A nice lakeshore view on a few holes.
Layout: Great layout. Lots of forced carries but they aren't as difficult as they look. Swing easy and they are no problem. A great par 5 (number 7) gives the course it's signature hole. Well worth the drive.
Services: Very nice people. The ranger was cordial and helpful.

Reviewed by: Tony Weber - Maple Grove, MN. Tony shoots in the 80s.
Review Summary: Very tight course but it is manageable because it plays fairly short.
Conditions: The fairways are in great shape. They will have long rolls. The greens play fairly fast and have a lot of slope. The greens are also in good shape. The bunkers have a few rocks in them.
Scenery: It is a beautiful course that has several magnificent views. It has a lake that runs along it and it also has many shots over marsh.
Layout: Very challenging layout. It has a chance for a penalty stroke on almost every hole. It has a lot of bunkers but it is manageable because of the length. Some holes have fairly long carries for the tee shots.
Services: Excellent service and are very friendly.

Reviewed by: Joe Buege - Rogers, MN. Joe shoots in the 70's.
Review Summary: Good elevation changes and receptive driving areas balance a challenging golfing experience. Many hazards and a fair amount of forced carries from the tee increase the sphincter ratio. Beautiful setting with woods, lakes, and marsh.
Conditions: Tees, fairways and roughs consistently good. Greens were a little suspect early in 2005 but improved dramatically throughout year.
Scenery: Stunning. Some residential development on a few holes but does not take away from natural look of course.
Layout: Rolling, lake and marsh, wooded, bent fairways. No driving range.
Services: Adequate Pro Shop, Bar and Restaurant, banquet facility.
