About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6625 yards
Slope 136
Rating 72.5

The 27 holes of championship golf at Trappers Golf Club are spread across the rolling countryside of Wisconsin Dells, a landscape that was carved by glaciers thousands of years ago. The terrain provided an incredible canvas for course designers Andy North and Roger Packard to work with. They first designed 18 holes, the Canyon and Lake nines and then added the Arbor nine in 2000. The golf courses can be played as three different 18-hole combinations. The Canyon/Arbor Course combines the old and the new. The Canyon is home to Trappers Turn's signature hole, the par-3 seventh, which has an extreme drop in elevation into a small green that sits amidst a glacier-formed canyon but it is not as intimidating a hole as it seems. The scenery continues onto the Arbor nine, which borders the Rocky Arbor State Park.

Great Dells area course

There are too many amazing WI golf courses to really stand out. But this course is worth the trip if your at the Dells and on vacation, this is the one in the area that is worth your time. Loved it!

Great late season shape!

Played 18 holes on this freakishly warm November day. The greens have recovered fairly well post being aerated. Fairways and tee boxes are in excellent shape given the time of year.

November Golf

Thank you Golf Now for the Hot Deal! First time there. Very nice course. You have to hit the ball straight on the Canyon course. The Arbor course is more forgiving. 72 degrees in November in Wisconsin I couldn’t have a better place to spend my day.

Father, Son and Grandson Golf

This was my 1st time at Trappers Turn. I am a 67 year old golfer and enjoyed a wonderful round of fall golf with my son and my 13 year old grandson. The course layout is magnificent and was in excellent shape. The most challenging holes were the par 3’s. I hope to play Trapper’s Turn again sometime.

Like Putting on a Picnic Table

I have been to Trappers several times. I for the most part like the course. We only go when there is a deal on Golfnow.com. This past week went in the morning on a beautiful day. I can tell you this was one of my least enjoyable rounds of the summer. I have played 75+ times this summer. Putting is my thing. I can always make adjustments to the greens. The greens on this day were the most absolute unfair I have ever seen greens. I don't mind missing or even three putting once in a while. I actually had a four putt on 12. The greens were unplayable in my opinion. I will not go back. There are too many other courses in the Dells area to play. Sorry Trappers! No more for me. The beer is off the charts expensive. If you want a fair course with a good price on beer try Cold Water Canyon. Played there today and shot a 85. Nothing special I know, but at least we were treated fairly.

GPS

The GPS in the cart we had didn’t work and the person we talked to in the pro shop indicated that it was new and needed a few rounds before it worked. I gave it two more holes, talked to a different person, who sent a replacement. The person that delivered the replacement cart said it happens all the time. This should have been the outcome the first time I called in.
