Rating 68.2

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.

Lake Wisconsin

Had a really fun round, even though we didn't play as well as we normally do, plus the shaft broke on one of my scoring clubs so put me at a disadvantage on a couple of holes. Weather phenomenal, great day.

There was stormy weather up to an hour of our tee time. Two of our foursome had a hour and half drive so they canceled. The course would not give us a refund or credit and said I had to deal with Tee-Off or GolfNow. I have yet to contact them.
As far as the Lake Wisconsin course it was in excellent shape and plays difficult with some tight fairways and dog-legs. I’m playing it again in a few days, that in itself attests to how I feel about the course.

Nice little place for a quickie

The course is pretty short, but it is tight in the right spots to make it challenging enough for all. Could easily play with only hitting a few drivers if you're long enough. Most of the green are elevated and smaller with some good undulation. Even though the back nine is short with 4 par 3's, they are all different enough. Play the blues (remember, it isn't a long course) for some extra cool shots on the par 3's along the river. Beverage cart doesn't take cards, so bring your cash. The conditions were pretty average, but in a good way. If you're looking for Blackwolf Run grass, you won't get it; but it is certainly nothing that will disappoint 95% of the golfers. A few of the tee boxes were a little long for my liking, but still acceptable. The grass was in good shape and the greens were quick and also in good shape for being a little public track. We played in 3 hours, even with a couple of old codgers in front of us that wouldn't let us through.

I'd play here again if I was in the area and the price was right.

Enjoyable Day

Good pace of play - just under 4 hours. Some waiting because we were a rwosome. Greens were excellent and putted very consistently. Fairway mowing was in progress while we played.
Played off the white tees and some of the holes are fairly short, but makes for good scoring, especially for seniors. Shot 76 on a par 70 course with lots of birdie opportunities. Thought I had a chance to shoot my age, but a DB on 16th hole ended that hope.

Fun course with excellent conditions

Lake Wisconsin CC is a charming, scenic par 70 course less than 45 minutes from Madison. The General Manager (Jon) couldn't have been more accommodating in spite of virus issues. They are using "pool noodles" in the cups to make it easy to retrieve your ball, but this still allows normal play. Must better than "raised" cups! Tee times were 10 minutes apart, the pace was excellent and there was a beverage cart on the course.

The layout is shorter and tighter than most, a ball striking course which gives everybody opportunities to score even if you don't hit it a mile. The greens are small and fast with subtle undulation which makes them challenging and fun to putt. The course was in excellent condition for May 1, greens will get faster in the summer but are certainly not slow now. The sandy soil tends to drain well. I was impressed with all the work they have done recently on their great collection of large trees, they had considerable trimming done and I noticed at least a dozen new trees.

I really enjoy playing Lake Wisconsin CC and try and get there several times a year.

Very fast and contoured greens made it extremely challenging. Superb conditions. Opportunities are out there to score low but danger is there if you are erratic.

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.
