About the Golf Course

Big Fish Golf Club

The Course

Big Fish Golf Club is a lot like the area in which it resides. Just like Hayward, Big Fish has a wide variety of golf holes. From links style, wide open, windswept fairways on the front nine, to tree lined, rolling fairways on the back. Pete Dye did a masterful job of having the entire golf course flow together, even though the two nines are so different aesthetically. His signature pot bunkers are present on both sides, as are the subtle nuances in the greens that make the course different every time you play. Even though the back nine is cut through the woods, it doesn’t severely penalize you for an errant tee shot. There is some room to miss left or right, and still have an opportunity to get to the green. Most folks don’t believe it when they’re told that the front nine actually plays tougher than the back. Even though there isn’t a single tree present on the entire front nine, the wind, fairway undulation and bunkering all scream Pete Dye. There are certain places on both sides that you just can’t hit it. I guess you’d call those places Dye-Abolical!! People come back to Big Fish over and over for these reasons. It is truly amazing how different the course can play from one time to the next depending  on conditions, tee placements and hole locations.

14th Best Course to Play in Wisconsin

For beginner golfers, the front nine at Big Fish presents a great chance to learn the game of golf without being frustrated by water hazards, swamps and other features that can come into play. It is a straight forward layout that is friendly to those who might not yet be able to hit the ball a long way or as straight as they may like. Late afternoons and Sundays are the perfect time to come out and enjoy a relaxed, stress free round of golf at Big Fish. We pride ourselves on course layout and condition and are currently ranked 14th Best Course to play in Wisconsin per Golf Week Magazine.

Practice Facility

The practice facility at Big Fish offers everything you need to work on improving your game. A large tee box is situated hitting south. Because of this, practicing at all times of the day is enjoyable. Yardages are marked every ten yards to give you all of the feedback necessary to improve. Adjacent to the driving range tee sits a large practice fairway bunker. It is separate from the tee so you can work on a variety of stances and lies. Also adjacent to the range tee is a practice chipping green and green side bunker. The bunker replicates the feel of those Pete Dye pot bunkers throughout the course. And when you’re done on the range, head over to the first tee to find our putting green conveniently located. This green will give you a taste of what’s to come with undulation and speeds replicating those you’ll find when on the course.
