Rating 73.5

Trappers Turn Golf Club offers 27 holes of championship golf that stretch across scenic terrain that was carved by glaciers. The holes are divided into the Lake, Canyon, and Arbor nines, which can be played in three different 18-hole combinations. Andy North and Roger Packard collaborated to design all of the holes. The Arbor/Lake Course starts with the newest nine, which was added in 2000. This nine is known for its scenic views since it has the Rocky Arbor State Park as its neighbor. The Lake nine has four holes that wrap around the 13-acre Mystic Lake. It has a links-style design that incorporates a variety of elevation changes in addition to the water features. Trappers Turn also has a practice facility with a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and six target greens.

Hidden Gem

This course will be one of your favorites. Just a treat for layout and greens were awesome. Even though there was a ton of rain the day before, the course was in good shape. I love this course and will play it when I’m up there.

Overpriced

Need better greens and areas surrounding greens for that price. Used to be better. Play Wild Rock.

Ummm...

Not $109 greens. Areas around greens were bare in some spots which isn’t up to par with the price. This isn’t the US Open so cut the rough, please. Everything leaked off the fairways and made it tough to find your ball every time in the thick rough. Remember it being better in previous years, don’t let it slip any further. Wild rock and Trappers used to be on the same level...Wild Rock is superior to Trapper’s in all facets. Staff was friendly. Ps: have a wisc rate discount for drinks, but keep gouging the Cub’s fans for $10 a drink.

Friday Morning Golf

My son and I played 18 holes on the Canyon and Arbor Courses. With all the rain we have had and the cold we did not know what to expect. Wow. Fabulous. Fairways were beautiful and al but a couple of the greens were perfect and true. The service is first class from Cart drop to the finish. The course personnel are courteous and adhere to Course etiquette. Impressive way to start the Wisconsin Season.

Another gem in the Dells

Trapper's Turn is located on the outskirts of the Dells, so after driving through waterpark and touristy madness on the strip, the scene returns to nature with beautiful woods and trees. It's here that Andy North, a native in the Badger state, built a 27-hole course that delivers one heck of a day of golf and Midwest hospitality.
I loved everything about the Canyon-Lake routing except for the very difficult first hole. From there, it is infinitely fun with a nice mix of scoring holes and challenging ones with strategic twists.
What really surprised me was the food-and-beverage operation in the large clubhouse. Thankfully, I played on Sunday morning and finished just in time to splurge on an all-you-can-eat prime rib Sunday brunch.
That night, I returned for a fine meal, kick-started by an appetizer of Wisconsin's largest cheese curds. Yum.

Every hole had the "wow" factor!

Loved everything about the entire complex! Will admit though... hole #18 on the Canyon course totally kicked my butt!!
