Trappers Turn Golf Club - Lake/Canyon
Trappers Turn Golf Club boasts 27 scenic holes that tumble across the glacier-carved hills of Wisconsin Dells. The rolling countryside provided the perfect terrain for course designers Andy North and Roger Packard to create a challenging course, or actually three different 18-hole courses. The team first designed the Canyon and Lake nines and added the Arbor nine in 2000. Each nine has a different character and incorporates a variety of holes. The Lake/Canyon combination combines links-style holes with woodland holes. The Lake Course has four holes that play along the edge of the 13-acre Mystic Lake. There are a variety of elevation changes throughout the golf course, but perhaps none as memorable as the extreme drop in elevation on the Canyon's par-3 seventh, Trappers Turn's signature hole. The hole spills down onto a small green that is situated amidst a glacier-carved canyon but it is not as intimidating as it looks.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Wisconsin
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.
Need better greens and areas surrounding greens for that price. Used to be better. Play Wild Rock.
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.
All three of the nines have some unique holes. The course is very playable for every level golfer.
Nice track. 3 very different 9s Cart path only today made the Canyon course more challenging. Arbor was more open and straightforward.
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.
Played Arbor/Lake and it is fantastic, great layout and fast greens !!!
Conditions were perfect, the course was impeccable, and the staff was courteous and professional. What an amazing round of golf. Highly recommended.
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.
Great course really fun to play every time I play here it is in amazing shape and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend checking this gem out if you are going to be in the Dells area
Very good condition,excellent value for money,very friendly staff
The course was in excellent condition considering the weather we have had. Kudos to the grounds crew.
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!!
