Played both the Glacier and Prairie courses in one day. Got a great $35 play all day rate on GolfNow. Glacier was a climb up the mountain and back down again. Prairie was also up the mountain for front 9 and back 9 was flatland links with water. Greens on Glacier were in better shape as weather and water has taken a toll on Prairie’s greens. Played in about 6 hours as it was a quiet off season weekday. Cart girl pased by 3-4 times, hot dogs were tasty, and the guy in the clubhouse was friendly and helpful. Would play here again when in the area.

Have been here several times when vacationing in the Dells. Course layout and course conditions were excellent. Greens were wonderful to putt on. Would suggest play it during the week as the weekends are extremely busy and much slower play.

Great deal through golf now on a Sunday afternoon. Course was rather empty, although we had a 5some and a 6some in front of our twosome. Both let us through and were very friendly guys having a scramble golf outing. Course was not difficult from the blue tees. No lost balls and no penalty strokes. No sand traps either. My lucky day. The course was in good shape. The greens held well, but were very difficult to read. They looked slow but were rather fast with more break than expected. Not like the bent grass I am used to in Michigan. Beers are pretty expensive at this course as well. More for a 6 pack than I paid for my 18 hole round.

As I arrived at the clubhouse, I overheard that they were overbooked by this website. The team they had pulled together and honored all of the tee times booked. It's a great course for the price and they have some top quality employees!

This may be one of the most beautiful/scenic golf courses I have ever played. You have to constantly refocus because of the beauty. Whether it is the amazing layout that takes you from the base of the Baraboo Bluffs to the top. The eagles flying over head or the fox and deer running Cross the fairway. The fairways range from open to narrow. The only bummer were the greens. They did not seem to fair well from the winter as there was a great deal,of sand on the greens. Cannot wait to go back again.

The layout of the course is awesome but the conditions are absolutely horrendous. Massive amounts of burnt out or dead grass in the fairways and greens. A ridiculous amount of hidden stones and large rocks that are obscured by dead grass or clippings. I actually used a t a few times to check and see if there was dirt under the ball. The speed of the greens changes drastically throughout the 18. One cart girl who wasn't moving is pathetic for an 18-hole course that was full. Devil's Head also did not have our tee time and we were forced to wait an additional 20 minutes to tee off.

What a bargain through Golf Now! A beautiful course nestled high in the Wisconsin hills with spectacular views. Play it for fun, not for score as the greens, while in great shape, are unreadable, mounded, and very difficult. Beer at 6 bucks each, a bit much though. We thoroughly enjoyed playing here.

The layout of the Glacier Course was fantastic. We played the white tees making the course about 6,100 yards. Drive position was crucial on many holes. We had one player with some course knowledge that was helpful. The fairway grass was thin in spots as were some of the greens. The views outweighed some of the issues with course conditions. Play this course in the fall for a beautiful experience.
