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.

Hot day, No water,

Yes it was a Monday afternoon, but still no water or cart person. One vending machine after Hole 9. Forgot to ask if there was a cart person. But also wasn't informed. I've seen this course in better shape year before. Understaffed.

1st timer

Played for the first time wow what a great choice. I am a fan of the courses that have lots of elevation changes and this one didn’t let me down. I have become fond of Mississippi national highlands,Summit,and Siren National now I am adding this course to my favorites list. Excellent shape great staff, gps carts and am fully stocked club house. Lots of challenges the entire round. Definitely bring my golfing friends here.

Beautiful course!

This is one of the most scenic courses that I have played. Lots of elevated tee boxes! The carts have much needed GPS to help guide your play. It’s a pretty tough course for the average golfer but the views are spectacular!

Meh, not bad...had higher expectations

Lots of blind shots, good thing for gps on the carts because layups were constant. Greens were recently aerated which was wierd for early July. Couldn't get food after our round around 530p, kitchen was closed. Spent a fair amount of time looking for golf balls since we couldn't see where they were landing because of all the blind shots, this slowed the pace of play down considerably.

Course is Beautiful - But Golfnow Hot Deal May Not be Honored

I was informed by the staff at the Pro Shop that unless they are able to pair you with someone you pay more for your cart than what you originally paid GolfNow. In other words it is really "with 1/2 of cart. When I told them that is not what the deal states all I got was an argument. Beware, they may not honor your hot deal.

I don't think my comment was understood. To be clear; if I cannot be paired with anyone SCN expects me to pay the other half cart cost to ride by myself. That's not what the offer states. It states that I am paying a price that includes a cart. There are no other contingencies for this offer as it relates to cart costs.

Thank you for playing SCN. Your golf experiance with us is very important and we can usually accommodate a single rider. However, the tee sheet was completely full and all inventory is sold by seat and not by cart by our Vendors (GolfNow and TeeOff) booking engines. 1/2 carts are customary sold with all golf courses. We have some open inventory this week and welcome you back. In the meantime, we hope you enjoyed meeting a fellow golfer:) Thanks again for your patronage.

Tough course

This is a tough course with many blind shots. Very hilly with greens that are very elevated or well below your shot. Pretty narrow with thick foliage and trees. Easy to lose balls but if you search you can find many, just not yours. The course was in great condition despite a lot of rain the previous day. There were some wet spots but for the most part it was not muddy. The greens were in great condition and rolling quick. The course can be had if you hit it straight or play somewhat conservative off the tee. But don't expect it to yield many birdies.

Beautiful course - Bring Your A Game

Lots of shots with uneven stances. Greens were challenging to read and fast. Blind drives some with rough of 150 yards or more in front require you to execute clean drives. Elevated greens challenge club selection. Enjoy the beauty and be happy with your score - it's not an easy course.
