Prairie Woods Golf Course tumbles across some of Wisconsin's most rolling terrain. On almost any point on the course, whether you're standing on the tees, the fairways, or the greens, the undulating landscape will put your skills of perception to the test. The golf course offers plenty of variety with a unique design on each hole. The rolling hills determined the strategic placement of the bunkers and there are water hazards coming into play on several holes. It's a layout that will keep you on your toes and reward a well thought-out shot, but it's not overly punishing for high handicappers. The golf course is just over 6,000 yards from the back tees but the changes in elevation can make it feel longer. Besides being one of the most unique rounds in the area, Prairie Woods G.C. is also one of the most affordable.

#6 Blue tee box had over hanging tree branch impeding entire swing. Almost Snapped driver shaft on follow through, was not happy. I’d say 80% of course needs to be re-evaluated .

Pleasant surprise

Had never heard of this course before seeing it yesterday on golf now. Two of us played 18 holes in 3 and a half hours. Lots of dog legs calling for accurate tee shots. Very enjoyable round. Will definitely play again.

Foot Golf

Our threesome played this course today. As we rounded the turn an eight some playing foot golf cut in front of us. We had to wait for them on the next six holes. They used alternate tees for some holes but on others they teed off close to the center of they fairway. They manager of the course advised us we just had to deal with it. The course is just trying to maximize income at the sake of loyal golfers. They have a good deal of space as you enter the course that could be used for a place for foot golf and frisbee golf. Hint to management, have a drink cart come out and you'll make the money needed to stay a golf course.

Love this course

Conditions were excellent with well maintained greens, fairways, roughs, equipment and facilities. White tees very suitable for seniors and made for duffers with natural slice. Price was excellent thru GolfNow. Staff provided good service and were exceptionally gracious in the clubhouse. Those in kitchen even bid us farewell from their location as we were leaving. Food and drinks very good at fair price. Definitely recommend to others and planning to return before the season ends.

Great course

In most cases your ball is still playable even if you miss the fairway slightly. Keeps play moving along. Played in three and one half hours, even with a five-some ahead of us.

Short but tight course. Greens run true. The greens are smooth but don't seem as fast as in years past.

Excellent practice facilities and very good overall course conditions. I'll be back! I'd play it more often but a little too far away to be a regular stop.

Challenging Course

There is a little bit of everything at this course (i.e. wide open fairways, tight fairways, doglegs, water & sand hazards, etc.). This course is a nice all around course. Too bad it's not closer to town or I'm sure it would be visited more often. Seems like it should only take a few minutes to get out there but it's a good 20 minute hike from Janesville.

Course was great

First the GPS on here sent me to a farm house. On arriving the long drive was in good shape and inviting maybe a little more signs would be helpful. When checking in the young staff a little like not happy I used golfnow or could it have been Sunday don't know won't stop me from coming back. When said my first time here not much to help but tee one around the pond. Nothing about range or where the cart was.
For the course was in great shape for the end of the year. The greens had a few leaves on them but it is part of fall play they played fast some holes were in hard position but made it a challenge with the new putter.. I will be going back even if its only my first full year
