What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
Hole #3
PAR 3 | HANDICAP 5
Westfields' Signature Hole is this par 3, playing 223 yards from the Boom-Boom tees. The tee shot must avoid the lake to the left of the green. If you choose to bail out right, you may find the large greenside bunker. Three puts are common on the large, L-shaped green.

What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
Hole #16
PAR 4 | HANDICAP 6
A creek guards the left side of this par 4 before emptying into a pond in front of the green. A right-to-left tee shot that avoids the right side bunker will set up a middle to short-iron approach. The wide but shallow green is a rather small target, yet putts of 50 feet or better are common.

Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
The "Boom Boom" Burger names after our owner / designer Fred Couples

In 2016, Brian won The Shaheen Cup, an award given to a golf travel writer by his peers.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.

On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
