A Mid-Year Thank You to our Loyal Golfers
Thank you for your dedication to and support of Waukesha County Golf Courses in 2015. Naga-Waukee, Wanaki, and Moor Downs Golf Courses continued to demonstrate why they aresome of the busiest and most popular Golf Courses in the state.
Golf Course Conditions
They are excellent at all three golf courses. Since we have not had any major construction projects impacting our golf courses this year, each of our 45 holes are in prime condition. Aerification schedules for the courses are set for September, with further detail as we get closer to the fall season.
Specials and Special Events: Nine hole Moor Downs Golf Course is celebrating 100 years of golf, and has a number of specials and opportunities for you. Foot Golf is now open at Moor Downs, and we have already seen an increase in use and participation by people of all ages. Try it…you will get a “kick” out of it. Naga Waukee War Memorial and Wanaki Golf Courses are offering great summer rates and premium conditions at our two eighteen hole golf courses. Wanaki is celebrating 45-years of golf, and will be offering Anniversary specials in August.
Naga Waukee Golf Course has completed year 2 of a land management effort using goats to reduce invasive species in the woods between holes number 10 and 18. The range has been busy all season, and we are looking at adding an expanded tee surface area and improved targets at the range. In September, 2015, Wanaki and Naga-Waukee will be hosting the 2015 Wisconsin State Public Links Championship.
Wanaki Golf Course is making some bunker revisions, and will be improving the teeing surface at the practice cages. The junior and youth programs at Wanaki are fantastic, and in full swing, offering youth the opportunity to learn and grow into golf. High school events are abundant, and fun for the whole family.
Moor Downs Golf Course is making some bunker improvements, has removed several deteriorating trees, and is planting in selective areas new trees. Foot Golf, which uses the existing tee surfaces, and mowed tee and green areas in the roughs, offers 18 holes of fun and something new. Foot Golf continues to grow nationwide, with over 300 courses in operation on existing golf course layouts. Additional golf lessons are now available at Moor Downs. Moor Downs Golf Course will once again be the host golf course for the Wisconsin Special Olympics in early August.
On behalf of The Waukesha County Golf Course staff, we would like to thank all of you who continue to enjoy the game of golf at Naga-Waukee, Wanaki, and Moor Downs during the 2015 season. Your continuing support and play at the courses help you stay active and healthy, and help us with the revenue needed to support our efficient operations, set aside sufficient funds to maintain the quality conditions, and make improvements to the golf course and facilities. Keep swinging in 2015, and thank-you.
Join us in the year long celebration!

HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PLEDGE???
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
Please join the USGA in our campaign to stamp out long playing times and end slow play. Sign our Pace of Play Pledge and help us make the game more fun and more enjoyable for everyone.
When you sign the pledge, you will be enrolled in a six-part educational program that will teach you the fundamental causes of slow play and suggest ways to improve your personal pace of play.
My Pace of Play Pledge
As one who loves golf, I understand my critical role in improving pace of play.
I will examine my own habits on the golf course to identify ways that I can pick up the pace.
I will Tee It Forward and play from the set of tees best suited to my driving distance, in an effort to speed up play and have more fun.
I will practice “ready golf” during stroke play; I will hit when I am ready to play, but only when it is safe to do so.
I will serve as an example for those around me and I will strive to inspire and guide my fellow golfers to improve their pace of play.
I understand that golf course design and setup can affect pace of play, and I promise to support those who manage the facilities where I play to find solutions for optimizing pace of play.
I will seek out a golf professional to help me improve my game and my pace of play.
I will embrace opportunities to play nine holes when my schedule doesn�™t allow for an 18-hole round.
I will encourage others to take the Pace of Play Pledge, for the good of the game.
I will play more quickly, play better and have more fun!
