By Brian Weis
Whether you have played a course 20+ times a year or looking to play the course for the first time, insights from an insider can help enhance your golf experience. Below is an interview with Lloyd Young who shares some valuable tidbits about the course, memorable holes and must eats and treats at the 19th.
Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
Pine Hills is truly one of finest golf courses throughout Wisconsin's historic Northwoods. Our 72 par beautiful course is conveniently nestled among the towering pines to help you experience nature at its best. All 18 holes are deigned to test your shot making ability while giving you the opportunity to enjoy your surroundings.
For the religious golfer nothing beats the relaxing feeling of seclusion in one of natures top settings. No cars whizzing by the fairway, no random farm fields surrounding the greens; it's just you, the trees, the ball, and golf at it's finest. We take pride in the natural beauty of Pine Hills and we work to be the best golf course in Northern Wisconsin.
For those of you needing to do a little fine tuning to your game, we also have a full service driving range and putting green on site near our majestic Club House.
If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
If you are looking for a place to get away from it all bring your clubs and hop in a cart. After hole number 5, you will not see another hole. There are no nearby roads so the you will be at one with your surroundings.
What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
If you keep your drive in the middle you will have a look at the green for your second shot. Many holes have some dog legs and twists and you do not need to get greedy. Find the middle of the fairway and you will score well.
Any recent changes to the golf course? Or any upcoming changes? Brand new sand in the sand traps.
We are investing in new carts with GPS.
Do you offer stay and play packages?
Pine Hills Golf and Supper Club is owned by the North Star Mohican Casino Resort. Guests can stay in either our luxury hotel or RV park. Please contact 715-787-3100 for stay and play package information.
What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole? Hole #16 is our signature hole. Keep driver in the bag off the tee and play a 230 shot short of the water. You will be left with a short iron (8-9 iron) that you can attack the pin.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
Hole #11 is my favorite. A left bending hole that takes three solid shots to get to the green. It is best to hit a straight ball off the tee. There really is not a corner to cut and it is too risky of a play. If you play it safe you will have an excellent opportunity for birdie or par.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
Our restaurant is renown for its spectacular diners, Friday fish fry and unbeatable Sunday brunch. The locals rave about our crab cakes.
