Rating 71.9
Type Public
La Belle Golf Club, formerly Rolling Hills Country Club and Lac La Belle Golf Course, has a history that dates back to the late 19th century. Although the course changed ownership in 2007, not much else about it has changed. Over the years it has garnered a reputation amongst locals for being one of the best golf courses in southeastern Wisconsin. The course wanders across lush, gently rolling countryside that is studded with stands of mature trees. Meandering streams come into play, as do strategically placed bunkers. The classic layout has a character that you won't find on modern courses but its challenges and playability have withstood the test of time. Beginners can approach the golf course with confidence while more advanced players can enjoy a casual round that still offers a challenge.

Lac La Belle is a must play.

Lac La Belle is a dyed in the wool old style course. You HAVE to hit it straight off the tee. Greens are small and speedy. Up and downs aren't easy. I really enjoyed the course! It sort of lulls you into making mistakes. You have to pay attention to where you are hitting it. Amenities are outdated etc. Grass isn't consistent everywhere, but the layout makes up for everything. If someone would dump money into the paths, sand traps, and get some of the grass more consistent, it would be pretty great. Realistically, I don't think a major investment would work. Even though the course is smack dab in a high dollar area, I don't see people paying a lot to play there especially when they have to compete with BristleCone's amenities. The course is very good even at its current condition. I will come back to it periodically to test my abilities.

Nice variety

The new owners are making improvements, hope they get some sand in the bunkers soon. The greens run true. most of the tee shots require good placement to have a good second shot.

Best 6500 yard track out there

Play this course regularly. Course is in great shape. Great recovery from the storm earlier in the summer. Bunkers and cart paths need work, some holes on the back nine need drainage issues addressed, the tee boxes need to be leveled out course wide. A Labelle handicap carries well though. Challenging but rewards accurate, smart play

Trees growing into Fairways

This former County Club course is very challenging. There are a number of difficult holes and the greens are tough - which is to be expected. But what I and my golf partner don't like is your ball can be on the Fairway and you can't hit the ball straight at the green because of tree limbs and branches hanging into the Fairway. If these branches and limbs would be cut back, the course would be much improved.

Getting better all the time.

I play this course quite often, I see all the improvements the new owners are making. The bunkers are more like dirt than sand, I hope they get some sand in them soon.

Nice Course but.....

The course was in good shape despite wet weather. The staff refuses to honor rates that are posted online on their site. They use the excuse that a third party operates the booking function and "they" don't always have the right information. Unfortunately this has happened to me more than once at this course. This is a real turn off and needs to change for this place to be successful.
