This is a links type course so has no trees. However, it has vast area of hip high grass on mounds between fairways. Hit into this area and you might as well drop another ball! This difference makes this course a lot of fun to play, with a heavy emphasis on hitting a straight ball. The beauty of this course is definitely different but very attractive in a wild sort of way. I enjoy golfing this course and return most every year.
Thank heavens I was golfing fairly well when I played this course. It's one of the most challenging courses that I'd ever played. The 18 holes provided a beautiful venue in which to use all your skills. There were bunkers, water hazards, trees, hills, and dog legs to make you play all the shots in your bag. This is course ranks up at the top of all the courses I've played in Wisconsin. (It doesn't hurt that the women's tees allow for a significantly shorter distance either!)
I learned on this course! Thank heavens it was as new as I was at the time. My memories of Camelot are not altogether memorable, due to my level of skill but that wasn't the courses fault. I remember that the 18 holes were definitely a challenge to walk, say nothing of carrying ones bag. It was long and quite hilly. If what I remember has continued to be improved and enhanced, I'm sure that this is one of the better courses in the area.
At one time, this was the premier course in the Fox River Valley. It was 18 holes and had beautiful green fairways lined with towering mature Elm trees. Unfortunately, Dutch Elm Disease did a terrible number on that aspect of this beautiful course.A brook winds its way through the course so water came into play quite often. Some of the back nine follows the shore of the Fox River as it connects Lake Winnebago with Lake Butte des Morts. This was a challenging course to play but it definitely is worth taking the time to do so.
Although we have a World of Variety in our local area, I often travel to Madison and have found it very convenient to stop in Mt. Horeb and pick up an item or two rather than waiting to go into our town the next day. I am a beader and I find that I can get pretty much any and all supplies that I need so I often stop and shop.
I am a breeder of a breed that can have its ears cropped. About 10 years ago Dr. Arendt was recommend to us, we tried him, and have used him ever since. We have never had a bad cropping. He is more than reasonably priced and we can pick the pups up the same day and take them home. We drive over 300 miles to have our ear cropping done by him and it's well worth the trip.
At one time this restaurant was an A and W that was very popular in Oshkosh. Since becoming Mike's Place, I've only been there a few times. This is a typical family restaurant with food items that meet the tastes of the family. I had a very good salad and an average sandwich. The service was satisfactory but not outstanding. Overall, this is an okay place to stop, particularly for lunch.
The Cork and Cap is a room off the main part of the grocery store in our town. It does have a good supply of most alcholic beverages, particularly wine. It is very handy having this store in our town as there is no other source in the area.
It's hard to believe that in this small, rural area that we would have a vacumn and sew machine repair business, but we do. Claytons is located in his home at the edge of town. I've only had need of his services a few times for repairs, but have stopped in from time to time for a part that needed replacing. It is so nice being able to get a belt, or whatever, when you need it and not have to wait.
It was at Leisure Lanes that I was first exposed to automatic scoring. Boy, did I ever think it was great! At that time I was just recreationally bowling so tended to check out different lanes on Friday nights. I liked leisure lanes and would go there on a fairly regular basis for a few years.
