Located just northwest of downtown Milwaukee, Washington County Golf Club (formerly known as Family Park Golf Course) 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.

5:25 minutes of my life !

The fairways were plush and green the trouble is the ball didn’t roll very far on them.
The greens were in great shape and were medium speed.
The problem is it took to long to play but I did see the ranger parked texting on his phone when he could’ve got things moving along.

Wisconsin's hidden gem

Always a treat to play! About a 35 minute drive from Milwaukee, and worth every penny. The best part is your money goes a long way. You can typically play here for less than $50 for 18 with a cart. I sometimes ask people if they have played washington county and they look at me puzzled like they've never heard of it! I devilishly almost wanna keep it that way. Always in great shape, professional staff, just awesome! On a side note, played there the morning of the 2017 us open at erin hills and washington county had a very convenient, cost effective shuttle to get to the open only a few miles away. It was one the best days of golf in my life.

Windy weather

Always a nice experience

It tends to be windy at this open course set high. Greens were surprisingly fast given time of year and recent rain. Really nice track.

Washington County golf course review

Great course to walk not to many super long walks from green to tee box. Great layout some really challenging holes mixed with some good scoring holes. Try to keep ur ball in the fairway as much as possible or u will be playing from the long grass. Great course so play definitely recommend to friends and definitely will play again.

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.
