Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 71
Length 5873 yards
Slope 0
Rating 0.0

In the winter, Alpine Valley is one of Wisconsin's largest ski resorts, but during the summer months the resort's three nine-hole courses serve as the centerpiece. The resort is situated in southern Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine area, which provides an interesting and diverse landscape for each nine. The courses: Summit, Sugar Creek, and Meadows, can be played individually or as 18-hole combinations. The Sugar Creek/Summit course begins along the banks of the front nine's namesake creek. It then climbs upward on the Summit nine, incorporating a variety of interesting elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Golfers should expect some uneven lies. Water comes into play on almost every hole on the Sugar Creek nine but the mature trees and elevation changes pose a bigger threat on the back nine.

The views are awesome.

We enjoy coming to Alpine for the challenging golf and awesome views. Some days the course is very busy and the play is slower, but that is okay. The par 5's are very hard and worth the challenge. The groundskeepers are doing a great job keeping the course green and cut all year.

A Pleasant Round

The course is set in the valley and hills near a ski resort. The golf course is a "summer use" that seemed to almost to be a secret for the benefit of local players. the greens were fine, with significant undulation. The course plays longer than the yardage, which can fool the eye. The views are scenic and unique. Worth the trip.

Lake Geneva area Jewel!

I am always amazed when I play this course on why there isn't more golfers flocking to this course! This course has great character and scenery. The price makes it the best value among Lake Geneva area courses.

Alpine Valley Resort (Summit - Meadows)

The Good: Popular ski resort area about 10 minutes north of Lake Geneva with 27 quirky, fun tree-lined holes. The Summit - Meadows nines are the traditional pairings, which include multiple back-to-back Par 5's, several dogleg Par 4's, and some superb short, downhill Par 3's. Greens, albeit very small, are in good shape. Staff is very friendly, even if the overall service isn't typical of a resort. Decent value at under $50 during weekend peak season. On-site lodging a stones throw from the clubhouse.

The Bad: Course conditions are fair at best. Many of the tee boxes have severe uneven lies. Many of the greens are much too small for a regulation golf course. Very limited practice area with only small putting green and no driving range or short game area. Clubhouse is modest but has an outdated 70's feel. No GPS or on-site restrooms. Too many blind shots.

The Verdict: Alpine Valley is a goofy golf at its best, if that's what you're after. Some nice holes, but otherwise you'd have to play several times before knowing how to play the course, and that's several times too many.

Best Hole: Ridiculous and awesome in one, the short downhill Par 3 #9 has a postage stamp green you can't see from the tee.

Nice, but overlooked

We always enjoy playing this course. The Summit 9 is our favorite with all the variety and elevation changes. The course was in good shape for our 18. The only drawback I've ever found on this course is pace of play can be slow if you have a foursome ahead of you.

Early Season

Greens were fast and very well kept. Fairways needed some work, the grass was a little long and were not well defined from the rough. Tee boxes needed some leveling also, usually had to find a level area behind the designated tee area.

The course plays longer than its yardage

The course was in much better shape then the previous time I had played it. The sand traps need work but talking to the greens crew working on a sand trap the main problem they have is that some of the sand traps get washed out when they have big rain storms due to some of the hills on the course.

Front 9 was fine. Back 9 aerated already ??? Really....

The front 9 looked great & it played well except for the 4 jokers in front of us standing around watching each other
hit. I aint into hurry up & wait golf. And then we got on the back 9 with the same jokers in front. WAY TOO MUCH SAND ON GREENS. 3 putting was a given. The ball would bounce and a big pluff o' sand would fly up. Way 2 early
for aeration. judgement of speed & distance, forget it. It was a challenge trying to 2 putt from over 20'. hot &
humid, behind 4 jokers, and terrible greens made a long afternoon. We should of played front 9 over.
