Mammoth Dunes

Nekoosa, Wisconsin

Fun, on a truly massive scale


Before becoming his producer, Jon Landau wrote “I saw rock and roll’s future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.” A similar revelation could be after playing Mammoth Dunes the first time. Its scale is just massive, likely far beyond anything you’ve played before. That scale makes the course eminently playable for all – the name of the game is not about hitting the fairway, or the highly receptive greens. It’s about being in the right place in the fairway and on the greens. Instead of penally doling out punishment to mishits, Mammoth Dunes merely gives you a lower odds next shot. In many ways, this harkens back to links like St. Andrews. But for a game that’s been obsessed with “protecting par”, the style being developed at Mammoth Dunes, and a few other places, is a welcome development that will make the game far more enjoyable for all, low and high handicaps alike. And that it’s being pioneered by such a massively enjoyable course just means it’ll soon have more acolytes. Which is a good thing for all, I say.
