Great course. Needed ranger on front. Skipped a hole to get around A VERY slow foursome.
The recent reviews hold true on this place. Great conditioning and playability. The greens are receptive but can be sneaky fast with some hole locations out there. Bunkers are fair and well placed. Good roll in the fairways. Upkeep always will make this place worth a visit. We all agreed in our group of 12 that overgrown trees are taking away a fair chance on many of the tee boxes, both whites and blues. (Think disc golf course atmosphere at some early holes on front 9 and then again on late holes on the back). Be prepared to bring many balls or hit plenty of irons to work your shot. Roots have buckled some cart paths also, go slow if you have anything more than half a beer in your cup holder on board! Slow play ahead of us was a result of first time players that probably should have instead gone across the street to the goat track Whitetail course. All in all, always worth a round or two each year and would recommend again and again.
Fun and challenging, slow play for first 9 holes, then better. Staff is terrific!!
First time out at St. Germain.
Higher end public course feel with tee to green conditioning to match. Beautiful clubhouse, nicely laid out driving range/practice areas which are in close proximity to first tee. We probably picked the busiest time of the year to come out and play but the experience is worth it. Pace of play lagged at times but most of that could be solved with golf etiquette and common sense from the groups ahead. Thinning out some trees out there near tee boxes and opening up landing zones would probably help with that also. People these days just won’t let a 50 cent Top Flite go unfound. If you miss the fairway there isn’t much rough to stop your ball from going into the woods. The overhanging tree branches gobble up everything else when teeing off on a few holes early on and then later on the stretch. A common sound is the impact of a driver followed shortly but the clunk of a ball hitting a tree. Wildlife was great, right after making the turn we had a doe and two fawns cross the fairways 20 yards ahead. Beer cart caught up with us a handful times to restock adult beverages on a balmy day. Had fun playing a little scramble together, good roll on greens. Overall, very pleased, and will make it part of our rotation this fall.
Outstanding all the way around
Just started playing St. Germain this year. This was my 3rd time out this season. I am a +8 and this place can find a way to test you. I’ve played the blue tees twice and most recently the whites on Sunday. The place plays very different from the blues for anyone looking at the total yardage, don’t be fooled as the distance isn’t a huge factor. The big difference is the lane you have to hit off of the blues is extremely narrow and at times borderline insane. Overgrown trees choke you out on probably half a dozen or so tees shots and probably four of those could be said the same for the whites. This is about all I can say for somewhat of a negative on the layout end of things. Otherwise this place has some of the best conditions a modern day Muni could ask for. Always been greeted with friendliness and helpful staff. Fun place to bring friends and family for a good meal afterward in the big old growth Log Themed restaurant. Electric carts are whisper quiet and crazy fast! Just have to talk my wife into moving up there now and join as a member. You won’t be disappointed, just have to be able to work the ball both ways with an iron to successfully tee off from some blue tees!
Enjoyed our round as staff was friendly and the course was in wonderful condition
Absolutely one of the most stunning course s ever played ....
Visiting St. Germain
Front 9 is breathtaking and the course conditions are immaculate. The back nine is very gimky especially 18th hole. They need to consider taking trees out near green to make it a risk reward shot.
St Germain was in excellent condition. Smooth, fast greens. It's one of my favorite courses in north central Wisconsin.
Need your A game
If you want to score well, you need to hit it straight. Fairways are pretty tight with there is not much chance for recovery if you hit in the tree/bush lined fairways. Great challenge. Elevated greens that are in superb shape. They roll true and are quite large. Many unique holes. A great challenge and a joy to play..
Really good spot
Spending some time up north to avoid the headaches going on elsewhere. First time out on St. Germain and this place is in excellent shape. We would definitely like to come back later this summer. Very tight course as expected cut out of a forest. Forgiving fairways and greens help keep the ball in play. We played mid-morning and the greens had started to pick up pace by the 5th hole. Our group agreed on a dry and windy day they could prove to be a challenge with all the slope that is out there.
The course was packed with people that I’m sure were escaping the craziness around our country right now. Play came to a halt 2 or 3 times but seemed to get back to normal after people got done playing nine.
A couple suggestions for the once or twice a month golfer from outside the region: Ask ranger attendant/first tee dispatcher to keep some space when people are starting out their round. Some folks don’t like that direct presence watching your every move and then advice suggesting how to do better next time. Also, we tend to follow other course’s Facebook pages for specials, course photos and updates. We are driving 7 hours one way and like to have some background info and visuals ahead of time. You have a beautiful golf course, show it off and get some more follows.
All in all, we can’t wait to come back and maybe grab a fish fry in their restaurant. Cheers!
