I have golfed this course a few times, some years ago. Actually, it was before the second nine was added. My memory of the course is that is was a very pretty course, very green, lots of trees, and gentle rolling hills. I know that it was pushing my ability to play it well. I suspect that it would be a challenge for most golfers. I do recommend adding this course to your list of favorites.
I like to shop at Nevada Bob's for gifts for my golfer husband. I like the clothing lines that are carried as well as the extra gifts. I can usually find something for him for a reasonable price. Although we've never purchased clubs there they do carry the top of the line brands. This is a good store for golfers to frequent.
I have golfed this course quite a few times and find it generally, just okay. The fairways and tees aren't watered and usually very hard. Now that does give you lots of roll, IF you hit straight!. Although this course can be quite pretty, particularly in the fall, I feel it's a course for the average golfer.
This golf course is especially for the above average golfer - which I am not. The front and the back nines are completely different, one being open and relatively flat and the other being carved out of the woods on the hills of SW WI. I have only played the front nine but my husband has played the entire course several times. The High School state tournaments are held here and the course makes the golfers golf their very best.
Some years ago my husband and I went to Windy Acres several times to golf. As I wasn't a very accomplished golfer, this course was good for me to play. There weren't a lot of trouble areas and it was reactively tree free. Right up my alley so to speak. Some time after we were there I believe there was a fire and the clubhouse was destroyed. At this time, I do not know anything about the course so can't speak for the present condition.
Now, I have to start this with the fact that I'm not a very good golfer but still . . . Several years ago I participated in a women's golf outing at this course. In general, I don't remember a lot of details except for one hole, the major water hole! Here, even beginners had to hit over the water to play this hole. And hit, and hit, and hit was what I did. Finally, the women in my group told be to go over to the other side and drop another ball (I think that was about the 7th one) and so I did. Need-less-to-say, I don't remember much else about that day except that the course beat me that day! I'd like to go back and try it again sometime - when I get up enought nerve and a large supply of balls!
Boy, the merchandise in the store is just beautiful. Not always to my particular liking but you have to admire the high quality. Of course, high prices accompany the level of quality. It's fun just looking and I have to admit that I've never purchased anything from here. It's more of a place for me to shop and dream.
This is one of my favorite shops to stop in when in Galena. The merchandise is fun and different!! Shopping here always brings a smile, whether or not I find anything to purchase on that particular day. When shopping in the Territories, remember to stop in and check out Twigges!
As I get to Monroe often, this is a store that I like to stop in. There Swiss Colony items are exemplary, and the gifts are unique and reasonably priced. I've found items for my family as well as for gifts. I know that we enjoy the things I've gotten at the Swiss Colony store and am sure the receivers of the gifts have as well.
Whenever I go on a shopping trip to Galena this is one of the shops that is a "must" stop! The merchandise is very good quality - as are the prices- the staff is friendly and helpful, and the store is clean and attractively decorated. I don't often buy anything here but do love to look and often get good ideas for future presents, coming back later to get it.
