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.

I was greeted by staff member Brent Geffert with a big smile and warm greeting! He took us to our cart, made sure we had everything we needed for the round. Great customer service! Course was in great shape. Will definitely recommend.
The course layout is very fun some very challenging holes along with some easier holes. I will defiantly be back.
The level of service here was off the charts, we rolled in with a group of 12 and they had signage out to welcome us in and genuinely seemed excited to have us. Not sure if this was due to the early season COVID restrictions, or because we were there on a Thursday, but either way it was a great way to start our trip and set the tone for a fantastic day.
The food and beverage was reasonable and ready fast which is always a plus. The cost of the round with the Wisconsin Classic Golf Trial was $65 which had us feeling like we stole something based on the conditions. Being associated with a Dells resort is normally a great way to ensure heavy play, but with the recent restrictions the course was in perfect shape with minimal divots on the tee boxes and fairways.
This being my first "resort" course it met and exceeded all my expectations. The layout was great, a few treks between the green and tee boxes might make walking a little tough but not unbearable. The greens were fair and true, faster than the courses we came from. Practice facility was set up really well and when starting on the Arbor course, was right on the way to the first tee. There is a variety of tees to choose from, something for everyone and playing around 6,300 didn't seem too long and gave some opportunities to attack some par 5s in two.
After playing courses in the area for 5 days, and playing the other resort courses, this left a lasting impression on me and in my mind as the highest rated. The value I got with the Wisconsin Classic Trail book will be really difficult to beat.
Not Wild Rock but real good
you better hit em straight here as Trappers Turn will challenge the lowest of handicapps...some tight holes. Well kept. Greens that moved. Great value at $70
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.
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.
I wanted to sneak off while the family was in the water park. I'd def come back
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.
