St. Croix National Golf Course is a championship course that is tucked away amongst rolling, wooded hills. This scenic course is one of western Wisconsin's hidden gems. The undulating landscape covered with mature trees can seem intimidating but the layout was designed with spacious fairways and bailout areas that act as an excellent balance to the more challenging elements. The well conditioned greens putt fast and true, acting as a perfect complement to the beautiful scenery. There are strategically placed bunkers and water hazards coming into play but it is the topography will truly test your accuracy as well as a variety of other skills. St. Croix National G.C. also boasts a driving range perched high above a valley that collects the practice shots. It is the perfect preparation for the challenges of the golf course.

Great day again

The course was in great shape today , they did plug some tee boxes but no big deal One thing I would say is that there are a lot of rude golfers everywhere pick up your trash and keep the carts off the greens what are you thinking .

Great Course

Played here multiple times this past year. Always a fun course. Had an issue last time I was here with slow play (which was the first this year out of 6 or 7 rounds) and I asked and ended up playing the front 9 twice.

A tough and challenging course. On cart GPS is great, especially with the blind tee shots so you can see if there is a group ahead of you. Playing here previously definitely helps out with the layout and what club to use off of the blind tee shots. Finally hit the green this last time out on the 1st hole with my drive, and ended up with a 2-putt birdie which was fun. You use more long irons than you would think (tee on 2, tee on 5, tee on 6, tee on 9, and 11) just to make the 2nd shot playable. Definitely makes you think and plan your shots and not just reach for the big stick.

Wonderful golf course

Flew over from Ireland. In town for business meetings and booked saint croix online without playing previously. Have heard a lot about this course being very tight and difficult. Based on traditional very open and wide fairway American golf, yes it is tight and difficult. From my perspective it was a great golf course and very much like a common traditional non-links course in Ireland or England.

Would recommend it to anyone, except those who are comfortable with very open golf courses that cater for those of you who are very wayward with your driver.

Repeat Offender

St. Croix National is a fun course. Yes, there are blind spots. Yes, there is on-cart GPS, and yes, carts are required (it is built on an old ski hill, after all). While it isn't my "go to" course, I've played here three times this year now (and it is usually once a year). Very easy to get to with the new St. Croix Crossing bridge. Staff was great (especially getting stung by a bee on the first hole that flew into my shirt while driving the cart to my ball). Tried to slow my pace of play down as I was out as a single and there was a threesome in front of me, which worked fairly well until the 14th. It was a near-perfect weather day so it all worked out in the end.

Fun Course

Course was in great condition, greens were fast and in nice shape. Pro staff excellent. I brought friend along, to fill out our foursome, that had not play ed the course before. He commented a number of times on the scenic quality as well as the challenging aspects. He also liked the tag line: " it take balls to play this course"

Only complaint was food/bar service. We called from 9th hole, took 20 minutes from the time we arrived to pick up hot dogs and sodas. Marshall then told us we were 20 minutes behind pace on hole 11.

Beautiful course!

This is a beautiful course but challenging! There are many blind shots off the tee that make it difficult the first time playing the course. Slow play due to a fivesome in front of us.

Love it

This is one of our favorite places to play, today was no exception. The only downside is that winter really beat up the grass and there are lots of spots that need love otherwise great outing and of course New Glarus beer for beverage of choice
