Abbey Springs Golf Course
Abbey Springs Golf Course in Fontana is routed through mature woodlands that give it a peacefully secluded feel. Surrounded by countryside and enclosed within towering trees, the course is an ideal getaway. The challenging course has small, sloped greens and water hazards that come into play on half of the holes. It is a golf course that requires accuracy, especially when maneuvering past the strategically placed bunkers that lurk beside the greens. There are plenty of challenges in store for more advanced players, but beginners can still approach the course with confidence. The excellent condition of the course is also a feature that any golfer can appreciate. Abbey Springs Golf Course's signature hole is the par-4 17th, which offers what might be the most scenic of all the vistas on the course. This hole plays from an elevated tee that overlooks Lake Geneva.

Really enjoyed course. Carts comfortable and GPS enabled. They did a decent job on the leaves considering the hundreds of trees.Few rough spots on the tee boxes and greens. Sand traps were quite firm but nicely kept. Some of the greens were very challenging due to slope and pin placement.
Difficult course - narrow, difficult site lines from the back tees
A very pretty course, friendly staff, hilly and picturesque. Fairly narrow fairways, lots of trees. Difficulty finding numerous balls in rough just off fairway. Greens fast with a lot of slope to the point of being unfair due to difficult pin placements for the average golfer.
This is one of my favorite courses. In my opinion it blows the courses at Geneva National out of the water and its a little bit cheaper (not much). It has many picturesque holes and his heavily wooded so you need to be ready to hit it straight. It is not very long though. The greens were extremely challenging and I had very hard time with the speeds and undulation. I cant wait to go back and play again!
My third time playing Abbey Springs, and every time I play it just gets better. Course is semi private, so when you enter the lot, you have to check in with security. Staff is very friendly and courteous, and everything clubhouse wise is top notch. Great pro shop, big selection of apparel. Bar and dining areas are very nice. Putting green is great for getting used to the fast greens. Range is a bit unusual, there is not much space, so you can only hit wedges there. Still good for warming up though. The course is the best part obviously, with amazing views on 5, 6, 12, and 17. The par fives are all solid great holes. Two go way uphill, and two gently go downhill. Par threes are very solid, and two of the par fours, 12 and 17 are definitely camera worthy. Highly recommend to all.
2nd to none
All the facilities there are second to none. I was impressed with every part of my experience. If your looking for a place to spend a little extra for that special round this would be the place you want to go.
This has to be one of the most scenic courses in Wisconsin. Carved out of the woods with many elevation changes and a dramatic view of Lake Geneva from the 17th tee, make this a pleasant round even if your score is lousy. The greens and fairways are in great shape.
This is a great scenic course!
The views over Lake Geneva would make this course worth it it but it is so much more. The greens are tough but fair. Well maintained and groomed throughout the whole round. Pace of play was excellent. Our 4 some made it in less than 4.5 hrs on a holiday.
I was completely satisfied with this course. I was not expecting this caliber of course for the money I spent on green fees. I will be returning next time I'm in the area ....
Well played Abby springs !!!!
Unique and Challenging
If you haven't made your way out to this course while in the area, you should really give it a try. The only word of caution I would offer is that on our particular day the greens were beyond lightning fast, which was okay for putting but which made chipping quite problematic. Even so, a real gem and great value.
We had a great day playing there. Will always play there.
Overall layout was challenging, but for the most part enjoyable. The course was very well maintained, though I was not a fan of the greens. Despite carding my first hole-in-one (hole 6) I had 8 three-putts, most for birdie where I ended up making bogey. Keeping it below the hole was of extreme importance, though even then at times the greens were borderline ridiculous to navigate. Great views, nice course, but REALLY tough greens!
Retired Super's opinion
This is a well maintained nicely designed course. Very friendly staff. Pace of play was what ever speed I chose to play. Greens where quick and true. The only negative I had with the course was pin placement. The greens have a lot of elevation change (their hilly) some of the pins where in areas that was borderline illegal. Put in spots you could put a 20 footer up to the hole and if you where short they would roll all the way back to you. Otherwise I would highly recommend.
The course layout was quite challenging and had a number of risk/reward holes. My only constructive complaint would be the condition of the greens - there was no consistency in terms of speed...
One of the best courses in the area. Great staff and course. Will play it again...
Great Gem of Lake Geneva
Abbey Springs always seems to please. The course was in very good shape, only down fall was the greens were very firm which made normal iron shots in the greens hardly ever stop. Greens were fast rough was challenging but fair. The course is tight but not target golf you just have to hit it well off the tee and you can be in position to have a good score. The view from the 12th and the 17th are awesome. You get a great view of the famous Lake Geneva. This is a must play if coming to the Lake Geneva area it does not disappoint.
Beauty and the beast
A true gem...picturesque. ..mature.....magnificent. ....greens are slick.. undulating. ..fairways are tree lined with plenty of elevation change....prepare to be frustrated!...... but do take the time to play it
