Tuscumbia Golf & Country Club
Founded in 1896, Tuscumbia Golf Course is the oldest championship course in Wisconsin. Nestled in the resort community of Green Lake, the course enjoys a landscape of majestic evergreens, maples, and towering oaks. The layout is routed through a maze of mature trees, they line the tight fairways and frame the demanding greens. There is also thick rough to contend with as well as strategically placed bunkers. The classic layout is more challenging than what you would expect from a traditional golf course from that era. It demands accuracy as well as skillful course management but it is a fair test that is still player-friendly enough for beginners to approach with confidence. Your skills will be tested but the holes are fairly straightforward with no hidden hazards and there is hardly any water in play.

Needs some attention
Played with a "hot deal". Could barely differentiate between fairway and rough and grass was really long. Some of the greens were brown and scuffed up. Pace of play was great- no one else on the course.
Great Classic Course!
This is the second time I played this course and it is in fantastic shape! It is the oldest in Wisconsin and a real classic. Narrow fairways, small greens, fun but challenging for any type golfer. Great restaurant food and pleasant friendly staff. It is a must play on your summer list of courses!
Very Nice Traditional Golf Course
Great course for a relaxing round. Was in outstanding shape for the fall season and considering how dry it has been. It was a perfect weather day and unfortunately there were many golfers out to enjoy it, slow pace down to a crawl. After four holes, I skipped to #9 and golfed at my own pace for the rest of round. All in all, I love this course when I am at Green Lake.
A must play on a Green Lake visit..
Course in good shape. A nice tune up for you if you are going to play Lawson or Mascoutah
Staff was very friendly..love the par 3's...
An old course that places a premium on being able to hit straight and control distance.. Couple of the greens need some work but the majority were pretty good, but the tee boxes are not the greatest. Fairways were nice, and the rough was fair. Got a good deal through golfnow.com., and it was worth what I paid. Can shoot a decent score if you can hit it straight.
Some extra challenges
We played Tuscumbia Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately we had to contend with thousands of maple tree whirlybirds on some of the greens. And a couple of greens didn't hold up very well over the winter. But we still had fun and the staff was great.
Overall commentary on the course important
Course does need a lot of attention. Greens have a lot of winter kill. Roughs are extremely thick and long need to be cut.
A young man working there I believe his name is Zack found very accommodating and a very pleasant young man to deal with.
I was extremely displeased and dismayed that I could not finish the last four holes because they had filled the holes in and removed all flags from 15 16 17 and 18. Thought that was pretty tacky for paying for a round of golf .
As for course amenities restaurant does offer menu but quite expensive would like to see a simple hamburger or hotdog bar for golfers.
Before playing golf again I would definitely recommend to see if the general conditions of the course have been improved.
Course was a little rough in spots. Greens need work.
Maintenance crew was busy working on improvements. Staff in pro shop were very nice.
Par 5s were long for ladies on back nine.
Fun day enjoyed our time, Nice restaurant with good food and drinks.
Fix your greens and fairways!!
Granted it's early in the year it's expected to see a little blemish on a fairway so I'll give them that but the putting greens were very poor. This is the worst conditioned course I've ever played at and will not be back. Definitely not worth the money to go unless it's the LAST option.
Not in great shape
Course is not in great shape, but in all fairness the price reflects that!
A must play in Wisconsin!
The course is beautiful and challenging! It is a landmark in my opinion and if you truly love golf and it's history...take a step back in time and play this mecca! You won't be disappointed!
Great Condition Fast Greens
Greens were in supurb condition. Even if you put it on the very edge you would miss, which was good but not good for scoring....great value for the money...no one was there so we werent rushed.
Good Time Had
Several green's were in poor shape, but other than that was in very good condition. Played 18 holes on the 4th of July in under 4 hours. Had a great time.
Just my opinion...
Course was in great shape. Greens were a challenge. We like the course. The guy in the pro shop needs a good lesson in customer service. No apology for a lack of carts, late starts or mistakes made via phone reservations. We golf there because of the deal we get. We tolerate the guy in the pro shop because of the great rates on golfnow. Still it would be nice to be treated like a customer that matters. After all, customers are his paycheck.
Should use a little insect killer. Lots of ant hills.
Great alternative to other area coures
Great value. Do to a GN error, we paid $80 plus tax for our entire foursome. 9:00am tee time on a Saturday. 18 holes and cart. Even without the error it would have been a good value at $140.
Some greens were beat up with winter kill.
Bunker were worst bunkers I have seen in a long time. Poorly maintained, small tree seedlings growing in them. And almost worse than that is no one seemed to have raked the bunkers after being in them.
Overall the fairways were in good shape. Tee boxes as well were in decent shape. We were mildly disappointed that the back tees were not open on this day, but for $20 we can't complain about much.
Would drive the hour or so to play again at $20, not sure about $35.
Bunkers need help
This course was in good shape for early May, although weeds growing in bunkers with no rakes in site and hard packed sand
Nice course wel ket.
Really enjoyed playing the oldest golf course in Wisconsin. Very well kept. Greens were in excellent hape and hardly any weeds in tha fairways. Will be back again to play another round on this nice course.

Nice Course Needs attention
The course was in good shape, but the tee boxes and fairways need attention.
