About

Holes 9
Type Public
Par 35
Length 3106 yards
Slope 0
Rating 0.0

Pleasant View Golf Club boasts a total of 27 championship holes, which are divided into three different nines called Lake, Wood, and Prairie. Although you would think that there was a lot of water on the Lake Course, you won't come across any water hazards until the latter half of the golf course. It is still plenty challenging though with stands of mature trees lining the fairways and several strategically placed bunkers framing the greens and along the fairways as well. The course has a memorable finishing hole that will please long hitters. This dogleg-left hole requires a long, accurate drive to an elevated green with a blind bunker to the right. In addition to the three championship nines, there is also a nine-hole par-3 course available at Pleasant View Golf Club.

Fun course for any level of play

Pleasant View was a very enjoyable course with some great views of the surrounding lakes and city. It would be hard to walk, as it is very hilly. It's a little slower pace than an average course.

Nice variety

With 3 nines, you get a nice variety of holes when you play here. We played woods, lake. Prairie had a girls tourney going. I like the legations changes, it makes you think more about your shots. The greens were a little slow, but overall very good conditions.

Pleasant View GC

The holes were placed in near impossible locations for a non championship course. After the first nine holes I was considering quitting, but stupidly decided to play on.

great course with great view of Madison

I can't wait to play this course again. The course was in perfect condition. A great value for the money. They had double booked my tee time but gave me range tokens and a free cart which more than made up for teeing off ten minutes later.

A great play if the deal is right!

I love playing Pleasant View. I don't like the rack rates, but when a deal can be had, this is the best place to play (based on location and quality).

We bought three deals and got paired up with a single. Thankfully, the single was a good guy and fun to have with us.

Great Course, but crazy busy

I've tried to play this course twice in the past as a single, and been told that there were no openings. With 27 holes, I found it hard to believe. When I finally got out yeaterday, the course itself (Lake) was very nice.

Really nicely maintained city course

Love the varied terrain at Pleasant View. They have wide open spaces, narrow woods, lakes, they have it all to make it interesting.
The fairways are groomed better than you would expect during this Fall season, where it's easy to lose a ball.

A well maintained municipal course with lots of elevation changes and some outstanding views.

My wife and I try to play this course at least once a year, even though it is 90 miles from home. The greens and fairways are always in great shape. We enjoy the elevation changes which can be a challenge for proper club selection. The course offers some spectacular views of the greater Madison area.

Nice course with good amenities.

Check in was easy and had a quick breakfast that was tasty. Practice putting area and range where in good shape. Only wish the greens were a little faster. There are three 9 hole courses and we played Lake and Woods. The course is fairly simple with only a few hazards & obstacles too avoid.

Nice place to play

Took an opportunity to play here after moving my mom to Madison area. Staff was friendly and engaging. The course itself was in good shape with all greens and fairways rolling true. I enjoyed this course because no matter how high or low your handicap is its a course that keeps your attention. Got a great deal on golf now for fantastic green fees.

Nice course with nice varietyand friendly staff

The course is in very good condition. There is a nice variety of holes with 3 nines. The only negative is the speed of the greens which are pretty slow. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Nice Course, Nice People, Nice Price

I got tee time around 8 am on a Friday and was a single. They put me with another person who was walking (I had a cart).

We both played a round of 18 in less than 3 hours, which is great for a quick round of golf on a Friday morning.

Course was in very good shape. Greens were nice and the people at Pleasant View are very nice.

Since this is such a nice course with friendly staff and it is close by for me, I will be back often.
