Forest Hills golf course opens after reroute, changes
Changes come after 2nd BNSF Railroad track
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat spent part of his Friday out on the golf course.
The mayor made the inaugural tee-off for the opening of Forest Hills’ new 13th and 14th holes. With the year-long development, the course has also undergone some rerouting and changes because of the recent addition of a second BNSF Railroad track.
Along with all the other changes, the course also has an addition to help determine a winner between friends.
“We have a 19th playoff hole so when somebody finishes their round we have a par 3 that, as we say, gives them a chance to figure out who’s going to buy after the round, so I think it’s going to be a new aspect of the course that would be a fun part of it,” said Forest Hills General manager Keith Stoll.
This is a special day for the course as a change of this size hasn’t been made in about 70 years.
