any of you play this course? Looks like it could add some value to a summer/fall visit to Galena. 8)

One of the funnest 9 holers I've ever played. I remember some amazing views of the Mississippi river and nice use of the elevation.

There are some ski lift poles adding obsticles in fairways and I remember it being very windy, and promised it was always like that up there.

One hole shot across a down slope, and if your disc took the wrong turn you could run the risk of rolling about 900' straight down.

Not sure I would drive all the way up there again for just 9 holes, but definetaly recommend bringing your bag if staying on the resort.

If there were a good 18 hole course near by it might make it worth it.
