By Brian Weis


Whether you have played a course 20+ times a year or looking to play the course for the first time, insights from an insider can help enhance your golf experience. Below is an interview with Theresa Johnson who shares some valuable tidbits about the course, memorable holes and must eats and treats at the 19th.

Golf Course Overview?
Sculpted from the heartland of Southern Wisconsin, Coachman's Golf Resort lies just southeast of Madison, nestled within the beautiful green countryside. A gently rolling landscape lined with oaks and willows line a 27 hole regulation course that is as fun as it is challenging. You'll find water hazards and roughs that can drive anyone to their knees, yet Coachman's is open enough for beginners to keep up.

We have a full service restaurant and bar with banquet facilities, and a 61 unit motel with outdoor pool.

We also have a Driving Range and New Practice area in 2012 This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary.

If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
We have a very well manicured course which is challenging for all abilities.

What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
Stay in the fairway! :)

What You Are Most Proud About The Course?
I am most proud of the upkeep of our course. There isn't a day that goes by that someone doesn't stop and say what great shape the course is in. That makes you feel like you must be doing something right. Every year we make small improvements such as adding a new tee box, or sand trap. We also have a new practice area this year.

What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
Hole #5 on the Red. It is a very picturesque and challenging Par 4.

What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
I love hole #5 on the Blue nine, which still has a silo standing behind the green. This green is also very challenging but fun.

Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
The Coachman's Clubhouse Club, and a John Daly.

Who Holds Course Record and What Was Their Score?
I believe it is Steve Stricker, and yes THEE Steve Stricker. He was playing in what use to be called the Edgerton Invitational that one round was played at the Towne Country Club, and the one round at Coachman's. He shot a 62
