Washington County Golf Course
Located just northwest of downtown Milwaukee, Washington County Golf Club feels much further thanks to its seclusion in the beautiful Kettle Moraine area. Arthur Hills designed the course, which is ranked second in the nation among municipal golf course in Golf Digest. The layout sprawls across wide-open, gently rolling terrain. The subtle contours of the landscape provide a few difficult lies and they can also make the greens hard to read but overall it is a course that most players can approach with confidence. Thanks to a versatile layout it appeals to a wide range of skill levels and it is an ideal spot for tournaments and events. Over the years Washington County Golf Club has hosted several championships including the U.S. Open Qualifying Round and the Wisconsin PGA Championship.

One of The Best Public Courses in Wisconsin
The weather was perfect on this day. Very relaxing and pace of play was great considering it was just the two of us and it was packed . Played in 4 hours.
The course itself was in great shape. Teeing grounds are large and spacious and well manicured. So are the greens! ball rolled pretty true all day. WC gets lots of play and I thought the fairways were in very good condition. Enven though the rough was thick, I was still able to play my shots out of some thick rough.
Got a great "Hot Deal" from Golfnow.. I will be back.
Pace of play
They put people out on the back nine even when there are players on 9th green. Back nine was a death march.
Pace of play
Our foursome walks and enjoy playing early. We were unhappy to see a foursome going to the 10th tee when we were on the 9th green.
Course was in excellent condition. Has a nice links style feel to it with rolling terrain. Relatively open fairways, average amount of bunkers,. Greens are fairly difficult with a lot of break and undulations. Played from white tees.
Hit it straight
Great course, but spent the day watching foursome ahead of us trying to find their balls in the long grass. If you can't hit it straight, play a shorter tee. 4 and 3/4 hours is too long.
Lotta wind- as usual
Had a great round very enjoyable little wet to start with but turned out to be a sunny day loved it
The best county course in the area. One of our favorites, of any local course, to play.
We had a great time. It is a beautiful course and it was in great shape.
Very nice links course. The wind was not blowing very hard so it didn’t play extremely difficult as it might under different conditions. The pace of play could be better. The staff and fellow golfers were very friendly. We had a nice day.
Very difficult course, but love the challenge with how well the rough and fescue was maintained. A few too many ball marks, but the greens still rolled true! Great service.
WCGC never disappoints
After a wet Spring, the course was is great condition, greens were firm, no plugged balls, no mushy fairways. This golf course is a dream, Thanks to the WCGC staff and grounds team!!
First time in a long time there was not a lot of wind very very enjoyable to play this golf course
Windy but fun
The wind was gusting to probably 35 mph, which made golfing very very difficult and also physically uncomfortable. That said, the course condition, given the amount or rain over the past month, was close to excellent.. I will wait for a much calmer day before I come back, but the layout is always fun, and I will be back..
Challenging but accessible
First time playing this Arthur Hills designed beauty. Everything is, according to the pro shop guy “right in front of you” which sounds simple enough, but with 15mph winds at every angle, the course gets tricky. Walked as a single, fast pace of play. Greens read true, not lightning fast but still challenging. Nice placement of fairway bunkers and challenging second cut. Will definitely be back on a less windy day to see how it plays. Would recommend!
WCGC is a course I’ve played dozens of times. It offers a beautiful layout and challenges around every corner. I believe it sits very high on the cost/value scale.
The only thing that kept it from perfection this time around was that due to the ton of rain we’ve had, there were 4 holes restricted to path only. This slowed play on these holes a bit, but overall round time was still fine.
I always recommend this course to friends and family, and I’m certain anyone reading this will enjoy their round here. FYI it is very open. Check the wind forecast, it plays heavy here. Bring a pullover.
