About Grand Geneva Resort & Spa

The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a sprawling 1,300-acre, AAA Four Diamond property, home to 355 rooms and 29 new villas. It's a four-season destination with the Mountain Top ski and snowboard facility and the 225-room Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark, an indoor-outdoor waterpark. Sandwiched between Milwaukee and Chicago, Grand Geneva invites city slickers to enjoy the laid-back lake life for a while. It started out as the Lake Geneva Playboy Club, part of Hugh Hefner’s empire. That chapter closed in 1981. Eventually, the property rebranded as a luxury golf resort in 1994 with fine dining and conference facilities for corporate clients. The Highlands and The Brute roll over hills and water hazards, creating distinct theaters for challenging and memorable golf. The WELL Spa + Salon, located in a separate fitness building, offers more than 65 treatments and services.

Great layout. Great conditions.

Played the day after two inches of rain. Greens were still firm, fast and true. Course was in great condition. Very scenic course with NO houses or condos and lots of wild life. We will return.

A little tricked up

Good course with good layout. Only negative. Sand is beach sand and whoever’s sets pins does not play golf. Unfair pin placements

Twilight Delight

Got out on the Brute 7/28 with a 3:39 tee time. Staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The price for guests staying in residence is outstanding ($39.00 with cart) and the course despite its name is very beautiful with amazing vistas from several tee boxes. The greens are huge and challenging, the fairways wide yet require accuracy to stay out of trouble as water, sand and trees come into play on numerous holes. This is a must play course for golfers visiting the area.

Great course

Nice elevation changes throughout the course. Overall conditioning of the course was good, greens could’ve been cut just a little shorter, otherwise conditioning is great. Layout is nice. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.Definitely will be coming back and bringing some friends.

Nice layout, visually very interesting

Overall the course is pretty generous though it looks really tough from most of the tee boxes. You really have to think about your shots to land in the right areas and avoid driving through fairways on the doglegs. Greens are huge and undulating, but they're cut somewhat conservatively making them reasonable for your average golfer. If they had cut them short, there were some pin positions which would have made them close to impossible.

Great course, can be tough for first timers.

Great venue, polite staff, new carts with GPS, free range to warmup. Starter was knowledgeable and informative. Interesting course with beautiful scenery, beverage cart made several passes. Pretty forgiving off the tee, a few forced carries, but pretty big elevation changes from tee to green can make it demanding (but beautiful) and club selection difficult. Better to be short than long on approaches, my playing partner had several balls roll off the back, and the links style setup doesn't stop them within 20 yards of the green. Greens were pretty simple, true rolling but not overly fast. I would rate this 5 stars if you aren't paying premium rates, which seem to vary by $30-$40 depending on what time you tee off. Great experience overall.

Excellent Experience

Great course and courteous staf. Challenging course For all levels of play. Greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Greens were fun. I found it difficult to determine breaks and had to walk around my line to ensure I had the right break. Lots of fun.
