St. Croix National Golf Course is a championship course that is tucked away amongst rolling, wooded hills. This scenic course is one of western Wisconsin's hidden gems. The undulating landscape covered with mature trees can seem intimidating but the layout was designed with spacious fairways and bailout areas that act as an excellent balance to the more challenging elements. The well conditioned greens putt fast and true, acting as a perfect complement to the beautiful scenery. There are strategically placed bunkers and water hazards coming into play but it is the topography will truly test your accuracy as well as a variety of other skills. St. Croix National G.C. also boasts a driving range perched high above a valley that collects the practice shots. It is the perfect preparation for the challenges of the golf course.

Great course as always. Beautiful weather helps too. Would be 5 stars but for the change to a cashless clubhouse.

Great Course

Loved this course. Being the first time I played it, it was pretty difficult. There are lots of blind shots and you really have no idea where to hit some tee shots without driving up to the fairway first.

Used to be a ski hill

To be honest, it’s just not my style of golf. Lots of blind shots. Lots of elevation changes. Hit your drive down a hill with 50 feet of slope only to have to hit back up a hill to the elevated green. Tee boxes were in very rough shape otherwise the course is beautiful!

Not for me

At $79, this course is not a good value. The layout is gimmicky with way too many blind shots and silly elevation changes. Yes, I know this was a former ski area. I didn’t enjoy the round at all and left after 9 holes. I know the back 9 is better, but I was done. Tee boxes were in terrible shape. Cart paths were rough. You can tell that not a lot of money is being reinvested back into the course. Too many other great courses in the area.

Could be great - Expensive for 9 holes

Only played the front 9. This is an interesting and challenging course that could be wonderful if maintained better. However, the tee boxes were more dirt than grass, the fairways were fair and the greens were ok. It could be the dry conditions that are impacting this course, but other courses are in much better shape. For the price, I will play elsewhere.
