Country Club Estates Golf Course in Fontana is a nine-hole course spread across gently rolling hills. The layout is player friendly enough for beginners and for scratch golfers it's great for a quick round. It can be played in less than two hours. The golf course is wide open, offering beautiful vistas of the Lake Geneva area. It may not be long but it's good practice if you're looking to work on your short game. Proper club selection is the key to scoring well on this course rather than being able to hit long. You'll come across a few blind approaches and the occasional bunker, but it's nothing over difficult. Country Club Estates Golf Course's third hole runs alongside a river and you may catch a glimpse of some wildlife -- including deer and heron -- coming out for a drink of water.

Fabulous course

Love this course. Unfortunately, today my twosome was behind a septuagenarian foursome of walkers who wouldn’t let us play through. Waited on every shot on every hole.

Great Shape

Haven't played this course in over 25 years and it is a night and day difference. Course was in great shape, challenging, not crowded and cold drinks at the end. Nice way to get in some swings and not crush your wallet.

Nice little 9 hole layout. Pace of play was great and it was in pretty good shape considering the rain we’ve been dealing with.

Good Value

They had 11 inches of rain lately so I'll try to review without mentioning all the flooding and standing water. Really should have advised when booking or checking in. Great course! Great for a quick nine. Challenging in spite of seemingly short yardage. Greens were in great shape. Standing water did add a bit more of a challenge! :) Rolling and scenic. Would love to play under normal conditions.

Short 9

It’s a good but short 9 hole course. Since there are so many par 4s, your second shot is the most critical one. You get to use your driver a lot which I love. Putting is decent greens are well maintained. Fairway could be a little better and it’s easy to hit out of the rough, the few times I missed the fairways.

Course has something for almost any level.

Course is very nice, well maintained. This was the first time we played this course.

It was challenging enough for someone who plays almost daily - hills, sand, distance (my spouse).

Staff was very nice, recognized immediately that this was booked via GolfNow.

We are already planning to go back and play again

Getting better all the time.

I first played this course 35 years ago when it was nothing more than a hilly pasture with greens mowed into it. This course has turned into a well manicured place to play. The greens were well cared for and very quick. Not many people on the course when I was there so pace of play was very good. Only waited to hit a few shots during my round. Nice getaway for a quick 9 holes.

Poor management, won’t accept time shown online

2nd time I’ve been told the course is closed for leagues even though tee times were available on Golf Now. Poor customer service and didn’t even apologize for the inconvenience

Great layout in a little space

I was very impressed with Country Club estates. Most people get scared off of 9 hole courses, but this one is worth it. The design is great lots of dog legs and ups and downs. Very few back and forth straight forward holes. Courses conditions were as to be expected but the greens were definitely better than I anticipated. This is a great course to go play in the Lake Geneva area if your short on time. Check it out.

Charming and Challenging course

My wife and I played this course for the first time. We really enjoyed this quaint little 9-hole course. The holes were very challenging and hilly. Tough pin placement. Fairways and greens were in great shape! Certainly will play here again!

Watch out for #8 !

A fun 9 Hole layout that's quick to play and is in good shape. I've played it a dozen times and still can't figure out the right way to approach hole number 8. Good luck!
