A good find in Wisconsin
Awesome track up north. Still a pretty young course but forest setting quickly keeps you honest off the tee on the first 4 holes. Local or prior knowledge is a big help on a handful of the holes. Conditions were worthy of this place’s reputation, tee to green just outstanding. We played St. Germain as part of our five day fall golf trip. Good fall colors to boot!
On the right path
We are long time Boulder Jct. summer residents. After years of jumping around to neighboring courses, the local “muni” St. Germain gets our vote for the best around. The grandkids are typically with us and have no problem playing from the forward tees (ages 8 and 12). This is a family friendly facility and very navigable for all ages. Conditions always provide a fair and consistent experience. Fall colors already starting up NORT!
This course is the perfect example of the over-designed layout that is ruining golf today. With the majority of the greens elevated and some ridiculously so, you would think that there would be an avenue to hit a reasonable approach shot to the green. Not here! Most of the holes on this course have no fairway to the green, with the last 50-70 yards an uphill mountainside of rough, so that anything other than the perfect shot gets caught up with no chance to get on. Ridiculous layout, stupid tight off the tee in places, and play was terribly slow. If you want nearly 5 hours of frustration, this is the golf course for you!
I think you have the wrong course. While a couple holes are elevated, they all have well groomed fairways and aprons leading to the greens. The greens are neither too large or too small. You can land an approach shot on the green and it will stick. This is one of my favorite courses, beautifully maintained and fun to play.

Tough Course, Great Layout
St. Germain is very tight in places. Hitting the fairway is very important if you want to score. The conditions of the course are very good considering harsh winters. Only Plum Lake Golf Club has better conditions in the Northwoods. Great variety of holes that challenge the best golfer.
Unbelievable course setting with beautiful scenery, not a house on the course that is cut thru the Northwoods. The course is priced fairly comparatively to courses of the same caliber in Urban areas. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The teaching pro is one of the best. Highly recommend!!
Really really good
First timer here, this place was impressive. Course has beautiful views throughout the holes. The facility has good practice areas and electric carts were a nice touch. Conditions would rival many courses in the state. Hope to come back up for fall colors and another round with the boys!
Wish we lived closer
We have a residence in Rice Lake and were visiting friends for the weekend. This is a very fun place to visit. A bit weary of heading out on a Friday during peak vacation time but in the end it was worth it. The course has a few border-line "hitting out of a shoot" tee shots right away on #2 and #3, and somewhat #4. After that it opens up pretty good until you get onto 14-18. For a town-run facility, they definitely are overachieving given the conditions and modern appeal. Having worked at a county course in Ohio for 9 years, these smaller populated areas usually have the tightest budgets and limited resources. This course is refreshing with the fact that you are not bombarded with flashy stakes, divot buckets, rope obstacles, etc...you get the picture. It is a uniform golf course with a fair set up. We played in just under 5 hours with small waits at 6 or 7 holes. The service was very good during our outing. Looking at what it costs to join, just as the title says...wish we lived closer! We'll be back again! Thank you
Try it,you’ll like it
Awesome Northwoods course. Beautiful setting and well maintained course. Try this one, you won’t be disappointed. Very friendly staff!
This is a beautiful, well maintained golf course. No houses on the course is an added bonus. Truly a Northwoods beauty. The course is in beautiful condition and the staff is very friendly. I am a member at a different course but playing here a few times a summer because I love this course!!
A must play!
Do not let the “Municipal” tag fool you. This course has evolved into a top location north of Wausau. We were treated to a great weather day while up on a weekend getaway. Busy round teeing off around 9:30 am but were allowed to play through on hole 8. Great craft beer selection and enjoyed the employee interactions. Course conditions were fantastic and greens were held at a manageable pace. Please make a point to grab a round here, it is a fun loop through the woods with plenty of seclusion. Clubhouse dining has weird hours afterward but they let you head over to the halfway snack hut for food and beers after your round if desired.
Great day, course improves every year
Picked up a nice deal on GolfNow and decided to brave the Friday holiday rush. We are twice a summer visitors to Vilas County and we always make sure to get a round in at St. Germain. Very well set up facility with improvements seen each year. We were paired up with a couple new to the area. Very busy day but the groups ahead of us moved along. Conditions were fantastic and the wildlife showed up occasionally throughout the round. Thanks for a great day! Recommended for all skill levels and especially if you want to take in the true Northwoods atmosphere.
It was a beautiful day. The course is beautiful, in great shape.
Great course in wonderful condition. This is a beautiful course not too long but if cant hit the ball straight, this course will give you fits.
Some holes have very little rough between you and the fairway
Awesome place to golf in the northwoods.
My son and I golfed 36 holes. The course was perfect as was the weather. The staff is so nice and they keep the course in wonderful shape. A hidden gem.
Great spot for fall golf
After a busy summer this course is still in fantastic shape . Great spot for fall golf with the colors starting to turn .
One of the better public courses our group has played this season. Conditioning was superb, course was very busy on the Friday we played as the weather was pretty awesome. This was the last leg of a long golf weekend for us starting in Madison, Stevens Point and the Northwoods. Clean facilities and good service is money well spent these days. In a growing age of golf where older generations are penny pinchers, this course is money well spent (Milwaukee/Appleton/Madison area with this course would charge well over $100) See you next year!
