|Back Tees of Hole 7||Approach to Green on Hole 7|
Pro's Advice: Four tees are located to the south of the big river marsh and must carry to the landing zone to the north. A short tee shot here gives you a wet ball and possible a real bird perched on a cattail! The floating bridge is only 84 yds, plus ramps - this is not as far as it looks! The foremost Cinnamon tee carries only 110 yds to the drop zone, or 120 yds for the landing zone. You don't need a big drive to be on the fairway. For the shy, the purple tee is on the other side. The green is cradled into a curving knoll heavily covered in young evergreens and white birch, but is protected by another little swamp so make it a good shot.
Naturalist's Advice: The tees located on the south bank of the big swamp are raised, with help from the swamp muck that was dug out to provide open water for the bridge to float in. The swamp is crossed by a wide and sturdy floating bridge, 250 ft. long, like a leisurely boardwalk passing between the gently waving cattails on your right and the tangled tag alder swamp, beaver paths and giant bullfrogs on your left, but the bridge floats in open water. On the right of the cart path alongside the landing zone, watch for the little flowers of the waterfront. The view of the Teal River on your right is superb, and the distant hills are all Chequamegon National Forest-the forest in which, less than a mile away, one of the transported elk cows wandered to give birth to the first new generation of elk born in our area in 1995. The green, cradled into a curving knoll heavily covered young evergreens and white birch - a totally natural bowl that was just waiting for a golf green - North country's version of the 14th at Augusta!
