Lake Wisconsin Country Club is located on the outskirts of Prairie du Sac, just a 30-minute drive from both Madison and the Wisconsin Dells. The golf course is quite short at 5,881 yards, which makes it pleasantly walkable, but it is certainly not an easy course. The front nine plays across rolling hills while the back nine is centered upon the manmade Lake Wisconsin. The bunkering throughout the golf course is minimal, but it is strategic and fair. The small, fast greens have enough undulations to give them some character but they are not overly difficult though the tricky doglegs shaped by stands of mature trees will test your accuracy. The par-3 12th hole is the signature thanks to a challenging island tee. Lake Wisconsin Country Club's 16th hole also has a memorable tee shot between two towering oak trees followed by a short iron to a well guarded green that backs onto the Wisconsin River.

Unplayable but they’ll take your green fees

Aeration during a mud storm. They literally were shoveling mud into carts it was so bad. They couldn’t have cared less when we complained.

Unplayable conditions!

Upon arrival discovered they were aerating the course. What a mess. It was a huge mud bath. They had guys out literally shoveling mug into utility vehicles. Most courses tell golfers when they are aerating and if I’d have known I would have played elsewhere. And I don’t know who did the project, but I’ve seen better farm fields after plowing! I complained, but the guy just blew it off. What a waste of 2 greens fees and a cart.

Front nine under work

Started round on back nine. Got on front nine and found out the fairways were aerated and plugs all over and they were dragging it. Didn’t tell us that was going on.

Slow

Played as a twosome behind a bunch of foursomes so we expected it to be a little slow. Front was 2:10. When we hit the 10th hole there were 3 foursomes piled up on the tee box. We spun back around and played the front again. Finished the front the second time in 1:20. Took a peak at the 10th and there were 2 foursomes sitting there.

There are 4 par 3s on the back so that probably has a lot to do with the slowness, but we didn’t stick around to play. Rain was coming in so we bailed.

Nice course.

A course map would have been helpful for a first timer. Some of the tee boxes had plaques with this info. Course in great shape. Played solo in about 3 1/2 hours - even though I was behind a member couple playing very slow.

Great day

Course is very well cared for. Workers clearly care about conditions. Pin placements and greens present challenge. Back nine has 4 par threes but overall a course any golfer will enjoy.

Unique course with character.

Bogey golfer. Played from the white tees which made for an enjoyable round. Looked like things got pretty challenging on a few holes from the tips. Six par 3s could be a turn off for some but 4 of the 6 have a lot of character, be it the Wisconsin river or elevation changes. 40* and misting and I still had a blast. Would come back in a heart beat. Course was in good shape for all of the rain we've had.

Just a gem of a course.

Lake Wisconsin again was super fun and interesting after not playing in a few years.

Condition was super and course was tight as ever and being nearly 100 years it still has some flexing of its muscles.

Short, but Sweet......

Great condition!

This shortish course will test you. Beautifully situated along the Wisconsin River. A course built when length wasn't the way a course challenged your average golfer. You can see the subtle strategies in nearly every hole. You had better take a little extra time on the chipping and putting range the greens are fast and true and 2-3 footers can be difficult if your on the wrong side of the cup.

Good value and fun

I have golfed this course a few times when I visit relatives. It is relatively short, but can be challenging if you are not in the right positions. The greens are small but roll even and beautifully.

After playing again I feel this was a great value. Played in just over 3 hours and felt good about the experience.
