One round down, and most of May still to go!  I had a chance to get down to play the Wilds in Prior Lake, MN earlier this week and I was shocked at how well the course made it through the winter.  The greens were firm and quick for the most part and the fairways and rough, albeit still coming in, were in terrific shape.  The one exception would be the number 7 green, that resembles a pimple faced teen with some scattered pock marks.  That said, with the right pin placement, it may not effect your score and it definitely will not impact your golf experience.


To top it off, the round was free!  Not because someone comped me, but because I subbed for a player in a golf league.  This golf league may be the deal around.  From what I understand, it’s $660 for the summer, golf every Monday with tee times beginning after 4:15pm, unless the course is hosting an event, and play as many holes as you can.  The league lasts through the entire summer.  We did the math and it comes out to like $40 a round and on a course like The Wilds, that’s a fantastic value!
