About

Rating 73.9
Type Public
Whispering Springs Golf Club sits perched on a wooded ledge overlooking the Fond du Lac. The course begins on open, grassy meadows and then moves to hillier, forested terrain. With such a diverse landscape there are no two holes that look alike. From tee to green, each hole has a unique character. The course is especially tough on windy days, making club selection even more important than it is already. The most formidable challenge of the golf course is the greens. They are often surrounded by a variety of bunkering and mounding. It is a layout that will put your short game skills to the test, but five different sets of tees lets you adapt the game to your skills. To make Whispering Springs G.C. even more appealing, it has been ranked as the best value in the area.

Great Golf at a Great Price

I booked my tee time about 8:30 AM hoping to get in 18 holes before a forecast line of thunderstorms hit the course. I got a 10:48 AM tee time as a single. I showed up early, and was sent out early behind a twosome on the back nine. The staff couldn't have been more considerate! I finished about 20 minutes before the first thunderstorm hit! Pace of play was 3.5 hours for 18 holes. The course is in great shape from tee to green. Greens are absolutely outstanding! There are lots of bunkers, but the sand is easy to get out of. Most of the fairway bunkers were just out of my range which was a big help.

Super deal for a very nice course

Very good deal for this time of the year, even though we did get a few drops of rain. Pace of play was great, because of this time of year (Nov). Will do again.

Beautiful fall day for golf

Course was in excellent shape. Had a great time playing. My only complaint was the amount of leaves on the ground. Made for a few lost golf balls in the middle of the fairway. Will definitely be going back!

shot makers course

I do enjoy playing this course although it's tough to pay the green fee and cart rental .if I do see a deal on golfNow I would definitely try to get the tee time. the greens are plenty big and very undulating. afternoons is when I usually play and the pace of play is fairly quick.

Hilly but Fun

This is one of my favorite courses in the Fond Du Lac area. Located right on the escarpment there are significant slopes to deal with, especially on the back nine. Some of the tilted greens will challenge you. Fairways and greens were in nice condition, and there is an excellent view of Lake Winnebago from the 17th fairway. I am not a fan of the tall tree in the middle of the fairway on #9. For the average golfer that tree makes it too much a matter of luck whether or not you will have a shot to the green after your drive.

Whispering Springs

I liked the course a lot. Visually, it was very pleasing to the eye. The holes are challenging and the greens were fast. Important to be on the fairway, the rough can be tough.

Was impressed the first minute i arrived.

As soon as you walk up to the pro shop and get a view of the 1st hole tee boxes and the 9th hole green you get the feel that this place is something special. Did not disappoint even being delayed by a storm in the area which made playing out of the sand a bit more difficult but even wet the course played nice.

Beautiful course.

What a beautiful course. Great layout with lots of trouble to get into. Lots of sand on back nine. Only complaint is this course needs a marshal to keep play moving. Very slow play. One single player who was playing from the blue tees, should of been playing from the golds. At one time he was holding up a foresome. (Must of been a club member.) That being said, loved the course, would go back again anytime.
