Fun track, great day of golf

Beautiful course, well maintained. Challenging but fair. Greens were sandy due to previous week’s State Amateur qualifier.

Wild Rock

Course was great. The only problem was it was pouring rain and we could only play 9 holes before we had to get off because of the weather . Everything else was great. We will have to come back on a nicer day.

Rugged and Beautiful

Wild Rock is a Hurdzan and Fry designed gem in the Wisconsin Dells area. Built on and around an old rock quarry, there are wild elevation changes, and the quarry comes into play on a few holes. The design is really fun and has a rugged look to it in a lot of places.

For the most part, the fairways are pretty wide and forgiving at Wild Rock, but big misses will be punished. There are also several holes with center-line bunkers, which forces the player to make a decision off the tee. I found they were pretty easy to miss, but definitely made me think.

The conditions were really good. They had gotten a lot of rain the day before I played, but the fairways still had some roll to them and the greens weren't overly soft. The greens were not overly fast, but rolled pretty true.

The greens themselves were very tricky. There were several times members of our group thought we hit good shots, only to arrive at the green and find our ball on the wrong side of a hidden slope. It's definitely a course that will be easier played a 2nd time.

A word of caution on booking tee times. I recommend booking on the website, because it seems you get better rates that way. We had a larger group (8 players) so I booked through email, and ended up paying the rack rate. A quick inspection later indicated we would have been better off booking through the Wild Rock website rather than working directly with the pro shop.

Overall Wild Rock is a fun, challenging and beautiful course that is rugged around the edges. I would definitely play again.

My favorite hole is the par 4 12th. It's a long par 4 from an elevated tee. You have to aim at the rock wall in the distance, and then play a precise approach shot to a heavily sloped green.

Really Fun Track

I always enjoy playing WR. Hard enough to be challenging, yet forgiving enough to let you score well if you play well.

I've played there roughly a half dozen times now and have enjoyed every round.

If you're in the area, definitely give it a play.

Visually Stunning Test

Wild Rock is a visually stunning test that is not for the faint of heart. Wide enough fairways to be playable but punishing if you miss them. Cool bunkering that requires thought navigation. Friendly staff with Halfway House after #5 & #9. Not playable for the beginning golfer (they have a short course on property). Biggest area for improvement is on cart GPS. They need to update their technology so that the pin location is synced up.

Beautiful Course—but a few things need attention

Great day on the course today. WILDROCK is my favorite course in the state. Today—-a very warm day ....only one beverage cart. With Covid changing how we do things, there is no water on the course...so you are dependent on the beverage cart. She was working hard, but definitely needed more training——she took WAY TO LONG to get beverages.....while foursomes are piling up behind us.

And then.....at the peak of the heat this afternoon—-she has not Powerade/Gatorade or Water. If you can’t have water on the course, then more water needs to be for sale on the course.

Other than that——the cart staff was great!!! From our arrival to departure, every one of the staff was moving and making things happen. Appreciated that.

Love It!

The course layout is outstanding. It starts tough, lightens-up a bit, gets tough at the start of the back nine, and gives you a chance on the last three holes to finish strong with a legit shot at an eagle on 17 (short par 4) if you care to use driver or a 3 wood to drive the green or be left with a short pitch shot. The views are wonderful. Staff is great. Pace of play was helped by the ranger kicking the group ahead of us forward one hole which was much needed (bachelor party that turned into a 5-some). The fairways do have a number of divots and it would be helpful if people actually repaired them. Yet, they are generous and I found that even partially errant shots usually ended-up being playable. The reviews here about the course being water-logged are a bit overdone in my view. Yes, that was the case in certain areas but it didn't impact play at all AND the greens were receptive so if you know your numbers and can plant it, good. None of my shots plugged anywhere on the course. The complaining about the greens having too many shelfs is ridiculous. This is a nod to how greens were designed eons ago and although it adds to the challenge, so what? Get over it. Take the time to enjoy the views and the wild life. I really couldn't believe how spectacular this setting was until I got on the property.

Little Gimicky

Better put it tight because you won’t be making many putts over 3 feet. Bunkers in middle of fairway on 3-4 holes, center bunker blocking many approach shots. Greens are a little too mini-golf for my liking. Used to like this course more than I do now. Stop watering the course when it doesn’t need it. No roll on drives and multiple plugged balls on the greens. Lots to like, but these are the things that make it a little gimicky.
