Missing Links Golf Course's award-winning instructors edify club-swinging dexterity in expert lessons that helped to earn the course a spot on Golf Range Magazine's 2011 list of Top 100 golf practice facilities. Initial private lessons instill golfers with game basics such as proper grip, swing mechanics, and elaborate castle construction in the course's sand traps. Before a second educational session sharpens the finer points of chipping, putting, and course etiquette and rules, instructors encourage pupils to pepper natural grass greens with practice balls in the lighted and heated range. After lessons have honed new skill sets, nine verdant fairways test beginning golfers with par 3 holes.
From the tee box on the fourth hole, golfers might notice something familiar about the green at which they're aiming: it's in the shape of Wisconsin. The geographically-inspired green is just one of many novel features that make up Missing Links 9-hole, an award-winning par-three golf course, which was designed with the help of Jack Nicklaus. Ponds and berms splotched with native grasses characterize the terrain throughout the course. Before sticking their tee or railroad spike into the soil on the first hole, golfers can warm up at a practice facility with a grass tee driving range, putting greens, and practice bunkers.
