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 setting and fun golf

My wife and I enjoyed our round the previous day we went back for round 2! Course had dried out and played great. It’s challenging enough but open so some errant shots can be found.

The only problem we had was we were supposed to golf with 4 people and one of our foursome had a medical issue and had to cancel. The man at Trappers Turn said we should contact Golf Now and they would refund our $86. I would greatly appreciate this.

Thank you,

Sandy Waack

Great condition

The course was great, excellent fairways. The only bad thing was needing to carry my clubs and my wife’s clubs up and down a long flight of stairs to get to and from the carts. Lot of steps when you’re 70. Should let you take carts to parking lot.

Slightly disappointed in course conditions. Most tee boxes poor. Greens just ok. Fairways generally good. Rough overly long in places.

Great value, excellent course

Very friendly staff. The course was in great shape. Fairways very well maintained, the greens also. Pace of play was fine, we caught up to a foursome in front of us and they kindly let us play through. Every hole on this course presents it's own unique challenge. Would definitely recommend.

Great course. Horrendous pace of play

It’s a great, scenic course but it took 5 hours to complete 18 holes for 2 people due to constantly waiting on a logjam
