Edgewood in Big Bend boasts two different 18-hole courses, the Oaks and the Pines. There is something for everyone no matter what skill level you are since the more challenging Oaks Course is perfectly complemented by the more forgiving Pines Course. The Oaks is routed through a diverse landscape of rolling hills covered with mature forests and lakes. It also winds alongside the Fox River. Water hazards come into play and there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Tremendous emphasis is placed on accuracy on this golf course, but it is not too punishing if your shots are slightly errant. The course stretches to 6,800 yards from the back tees. A cart will be required on this golf course but the flatter, shorter Pines Course is much more walker friendly.

Course is nicely put together. Standing water and saturated ground in fairways and rough made for a dirty and frustrating round. No mention of soggy conditions at booking or at check-in feels deceptive. Drainage and honesty need to be addressed.

Thank for review. Sorry the golf course was wet. Mother Nature has blessed us with about 9 inches of rain in May.

Course was wet but still in pretty good shape.

Pace of play not so good. Had twosome in front of us and another in front of them both of whom were very slow. Never saw a ranger all day. Why not combine groups or at least speed up play with a ranger?

We played some spring golf at Edgewood GC. Naturally the conditions were a bit rough given the time of year, but the course is pretty and challenging and I enjoy playing there. Once the greens start growing and are cut, it will help in trying to putt accurately.

Traveling across the country for work I've been blessed to play some pretty great courses. The Oaks course was no exception. The layout was phenomenal as well as the conditions. A nice little gem outside of Milwaukee and if I make my way around the area again I'll definitely be back!

$50 for weekend play?!?! Not worth the money at all. Tee boxes as well as some greens are burnt and have not been repaired. Weeds throughout fairways and some tee boxes. Slow play...collared shirts not enforced. Played with two guys who had tee shirts and Jean shorts. Took pics of condition of course...embarrassing. Some holes are cart path only due to location between ponds. No circulation in ponds = mosquitos!!!!!

Will not be back to this course even though they have 36 holes. I’m sure other course is similar. Can not walk Oaks due to distance between greens and certain tees.

This course has an excellent back 9 that makes up for the just ok layout on the front 9. I give them a pass for dealing with the river that causes wet, rugged conditions at times on the front 9. If dry, the front 9 can be fun with quite a bit of water to challenge.

That being said, this course's signature is the back 9 that is a design you would get from a $50+ golf course. In addition, the back 9 usually has much better conditions. All around solid golf course that is worth playing for the back 9.
