Thursday consisted of two rounds at Capital Springs and Hiestand for the Advanced men, and a single round, Elver Park, for the women. Madison Wisconsin began with partly cloudy. High 81F. Winds were NW at 10 mph but players were commenting it seemed more like 30 mph gusts. It was moving day for players as they continued to jog for position. With the temperatures in the ekighties and gusty winds the scoring conditions would be very difficult for all the rounds today.

Capital Springs DGC at Lake Farm County Park

The newest course used for the tournament, the Capital Springs DGC opened in 2013 as the second course in the Dane County Parks system. As with Vallarta-Ast at Token Creek, the grounds are well-maintained with a ball golf course feel. However, while Token Creek is generally flat, Capital Springs features rolling terrain with many holes that have 15 to 30 feet of elevation change. This course is also much more open with only one wooded section, while most holes are lined by prairie. Capital Springs is also the most exposed to the wind, which combined with the elevation changes, can make it difficult to control your shots. If the wind is calm, you’ll need to shoot a low score to keep pace.

Hiestand Park

Madison’s second course opened in 1998 at Hiestand Park on Madison’s east side. Known by some locals as “Radar Hill” for the Air Force radar unit that used to be where holes #8-10 are. This is another classic parkland course, with a mix of rolling open and wooded holes, and is a little longer than Elver. Everyone will have a chance to air it out on hole #3, while some tighter wooded fairways await throughout the back two-thirds of the course. As with Elver Park, the baskets at Hiestand have also been replaced with new red DGA Mach V Baskets.
