About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6520
Slope 130
Rating 71.6
Type Semi-Private
Glacier Wood Golf Club has a unique landscape that was carved by ice and earth. The scenic course sprawls across diverse terrain that combines open, grassy meadows, with mature forests and marshland. Sweeping elevation changes and glacial rocks that frame the course provide stunning views from tee to green. The more open holes have a spacious feel while the wooded ones are invitingly secluded. Golfers will have numerous strategically placed bunkers to contend with as well as many water hazards. The par-3 12th hole is the course's signature. This stunning hole incorporates dramatic elevation changes, forest, and wetlands for a challenge that you won't soon forget. The 15th is another hole that is as equally memorable, a u-shaped par 5 that is a double dogleg with a steeply sloped green.

Great course layout

Every hole has its own feel. Great conditions every time. Fair and true greens. I wish i lived closer to Glacier Wood, because it would be my home course!! Only thing that seems to be a repeat issue is pace of play.

Scenic and Challenging Course

Glacier Wood is on my list of best courses in Wisconsin. The course blends naturally into the rolling glacial terrain of northern Waupaca County. It is very challenging with tree and boulder lined fairways, and water comes into play on several holes. The large greens are well maintained, as are the fairways and tee areas. The Clubhouse amenities are excellent, with a varied and affordable food menu and fairly priced beverages. It is well worth the drive to find this course, you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful Autumn golfing

I would recommend this golf course and the Iron Grille restaurant highly. Booking the tee time was effortless and a great savings. The course exceeded my expectations and the scenery was breathtaking with the autumn colors. We had a light lunch before teeing off at the on-site restaurant which offered high quality food, beverages and service. Very highly recommended!!

Great track with color

This course offers a golfer a great time to work on shaping shots off most of the tees. Greens are bunkerd along with some slopes. Glaciers moved through this area with leaving hills and giant boulders outside of several fairways. This wood line course is a must play course in the fall.
