Northwood Golf Club provides a pleasant getaway that has the advantage of being less crowded than a metropolitan course and the convenience of being less than three hours north of Wisconsin's major cities. The peaceful feeling of seclusion is enhanced even further by the course's location just minutes from hundreds of lakes as well as the Pelican and Wisconsin Rivers. The golf course plays across rolling, wooded hills. Mature trees frame the holes and they helped to carve the shape of the challenging doglegs. Northwood is a course that will test your accuracy but it is also more forgiving than it seems. There are a few holes featuring water hazards including the par-3 11th, which has an island green. Wind is also a factor on many holes.

Golf and Fall colors

Course in great shape and greens were true. 3.5 hour round. Colors were beautiful and it was an overall wonderful experience. Especially for the all in price of $26 per person

Worth a visit

Very challenging course. No chance of playing a recovery shot out of the woods. Bring a good supply of balls if you're spraying it around.

Very good course

It is course that rewards accuracy rather than length. Greens and fairways in good shape. The only complaint for the course is the bunkers. The sand was packed and difficult to get a wedge appropriately under the ball. Under a 1/2” of top sand it was packed fairly hard. Otherwise a very nice course. Bring lots of balls, woods lining the fairways gobble them up.

Beautiful and challenging

Beautiful and challenging course, staff was friendly. Bar and grill opens at 2 during week and is very nice as well. Greens were recently aerated but in good shape, just a bit slower than usual
