About The Golf Courses of Lawsonia

The Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Green Lake is one of Wisconsin’s greatest golf treasures. The Links is a classic inland links of blind shots, mounding and incredible hilly topography to challenge and engage the best of players. The newer Woodlands course delivers a contrasting viewpoint with tons of trees and more elevation changes. It’s a high-caliber 1-2 punch. Lawsonia offers three homes for onsite accommodations: The Moreau House with a single and double suite; the five-bedroom Birches House and the three-bedroom Dawson House. Langford’s Pub is located inside the clubhouse, featuring a Friday Fish Fry and Saturday Prime Rib specials.

Not worth the Hype

Not worth the price they charge, Definitely not even close to number 4 Wisconsin rated golf courses. Construction going on on almost all the Woodlands course greens bunkers rock hard, don’t buy into the hype here. Very average at best

Beautiful links course

Course was scenic and in excellent condition
cart paths were a little rough
Several tees allowed flexibility for different levels and weather conditions
Greens were definitely the signature feature with varied undulations and crowning
Elevation changes added variety
No water hazards, but fescue and moderate rough
Well worth a trip and two different courses to add options

Not sure if Scottish countryside or Green Lake..

A must play in South Central Wisconsin. The length is very manageable...stay out of the long grass. Made a snaking 50 footer...which makes sense because you see a lot of those. Greens were in good shape. Massive. The front 9 has several old barns that really give you the links feel. The back has wonderful views of the country and course.

One of the best courses in Wisconsin

Classic Langford & Moreau course with a wonderful restoration by Ron Forse. The greens defy description. The boxcar 7th green has to be seen in person. I am a huge fan of Bill Langford courses and this is his best.

Not bad

Fairly tight course, but playable. Links course is maintained better.

Worth the trip but make a day of it

I was a 45 minute drive away and had a morning to kill so booked a single round on the Woodlands course. Great feel to the venue, very welcoming and helpful staff and somewhere i would return. I kept getting glimpses of the Links course as i made my way around the Woodlands. It was a windy day so i was grateful for the tree shelter but the Links course looked great and gives me reason to come back for a 36-hole, day-long, two-course outing. The Woodlands course was in good shape (yes a couple of the bunkers need a bit more sand) and makes you think your way around with some interesting risk-reward holes.

A Unique Midwestern Golf Experience For Less

Playing the Links at Lawsonia can ellicit all sorts of reactions. For some, it can be a spiritual golf awakening. For others, it can feel like a tricked up plot of prairie land. For me, it was just exceptional golf at an exceptional value.

The theme of Lawsonia is the bunkering and accompanied raised greens. And much like a Star Wars film you either love it and want more (and get more) of it or you don't. Unlike the sci-fi movies, it may take you a few holes to decide which side of the deep, oblong sand trap and steep-sided greens your opinion falls.

The "Boxcar" hole is many golfers' favorite, the par-3 7th with the steepest bank I've ever climbed up to a green. My other favorites were the roley-poley par-5 13th and the beautifully sculpted par-4 17th. I wasn't a huge fan of the blind tee shots right off the bat on #1 and #2, but it's a minor critique to an otherwise awesome layout. There's a great variety of holes and shots to play and the course will keep you entertained round after round.

I played the course as part of a 16-player group and the staff handled our event with friendliness and professionalism. They even extended us an invitation to play as much as we could in the waning light of the evening in a 10-player super-scramble. It was perhaps the highlight of our entire 4-day trip to Wisconsin!

For those looking for a unique golf experience but not wanting to break the bank, look no further than Lawsonia. It will not disappoint!

Absolutely phenomenal

I played here for the first time and was blown away. Best course I have ever played. I already want to take the 6 hour drive one way just to play again.

Course was packed so I was already expecting a long round, but it was moving which was really nice. The starter is really nice and helpful and lets you know all the lines for a lot of the holes. The signature hole 7 par 3 with the train box car buried beneath the green is a hole unlike any other.

Get out there and hit em strait!

Rough shape

You pay the same for the links and woodlands. So you would think the courses would be in similar shape. But they aren't. The woodlands is in rough shape. Tee boxes are beaten up. They are removing some bunkers, but the existing bunkers had big rocks in them and were unraked prior to my 9am round. On a couple of the greens I had to pull up some smaller rocks that were ingrained in the green. Obviously, golf the links if you have the choice. Woodlands should be at least half off.

need more help

Got there over an hour early to hit balls on the range. Range had no grass and you couldn't see past 50 yards over the hill. Club house bathroom was unusable, place was a mess and both toilets plugged. We had 3-some all driving carts and they stuck a walker with us. First two holes you couldn't see where your drive was going. Some sand traps had sand in them, Some where like hitting off concrete. Cart paths all torn up. Rough hard as rock and not long enough. Not a links course, most greens elevated. Needs some TLC.

One of the Best in WI

The Links course at Lawsonia is one of the absolute best courses in the entire state of WI and can be played for a cost that makes it an absolute steal . The routing is phenomenal and difficult, but it is still playable for all skill levels. Regardless of season, the course is always in great shape. I always make a point to play out here several times every year as it never gets old for me. I've introduced several people to Lawsonia for the first time and the look on their faces playing the back nine never gets old.
