From rolling, open land to holes cut out of the forest, this Ron Garl design, ranked on Golf Digest's "Best in State" list, provides the beauty and challenge every golfer demands. Six choices of tees and impeccable course conditions enable golfers of all skill levels to equally enjoy the course.
Opening with a beautiful par-five featuring majestic pines down the right hand side, the golf course gives you a hint of what to expect. Generous landing areas, superior bunkering, and a versatile green are all present setting the stage for what is to come. The next three holes cut through the forest, with two of them bordering the thoroughfare, a body of water connecting Lake Minocqua and Lake Tomahawk. Holes #5 through #9, as well as hole #1, sit on the land where Minocqua Country Club's original golf course once stood. Although these holes are not as heavily treed as the rest of the course, the mounding and terrain changes allow each hole to be secluded from the others.
The back nine begins with a beautiful par-four situated in a valley with tall pines and other hardwoods overlooking its entire length. Holes #11 through #14 traverse several ridges and rolling hills and offer both excellent birdie opportunities as well as the possibility of sending your score in the other direction. The final stretch of holes will define most good rounds from all others. Hole #15 is a spectacular par-five running along the Minocqua thoroughfare, including a tee shot that must carry up to 190 yards over some beautiful marshland. The par-three 16th offers possibly the most demanding shot on the course, with water hazard short and left, a gaping bunker right, and a very demanding green. The final two holes are par-fours allowing the opportunity to bring it home with a good finish, yet keeping you on your toes by demanding accurately placed tee shots and approaches.
