There was no way I was going to leave the University of Wisconsin’s home track off this list. By and large, University courses are far too little talked about. But they’re collectively some of the best tracks in the country.
University Ridge is no different.
This is a modern design and a big golf course. There is room off the tee, but you pay dearly for big misses. Hazards, long grass, and deep bunkers thrive here.
The real meat of the course lies in the par threes. From the back tees, all play over 200 yards. The 17th tips out at 250 yards. No other choice than to man up and hit golf shots on these holes.
This course probably sounds intimidating, and it is from the tips. Thankfully, six sets of tees make it fun for everyone.
Make sure you’re wearing red when you come to University Ridge. If you don’t, you might fall victim to a Badger.
