This is a quality golf course and is very reasonable. The views of Lake Superior are breathtaking--sometimes so beautiful you forget about your game! I will be back to play it again next year for certain.

Spectacular views of Lake Superior & Apostle Islands on more than half the holes. This is NOT a long or especially difficult course. HOWEVER: * Strongly suggest that you play with a local golfer the first few times. There are many doglegs where the green is not visible from the tee, and local knowledge of where to aim tee shot...

I played this course five years ago and it seemed on it's last legs. The pro shop was hanging on, the rental clubs were ancient and rusted, but the views were spectacular. I played again this year and the course was jam up in shape. You could tell that a lot of $ had been put in improvements. it was... More

However, after the first couple of holes the fog lifted and we were good. There are some great scenic views of Lake Superior below. The course was in very good condition and... More

This golf course is well-maintained. The course is not overly challenging, and can be made slightly more or less challenging through choice of four different tee boxes. Many holes a somewhat narrow to add an extra dimension. I'm an average golfer, and I found the course enjoyable. The course, however, takes a back seat to the views of Lake Superior... More

Very good day. The course is fair with a lot of risk / reward holes. Keep it in the fairways and you can score well. If not, bring a lot of balls. Fun course. But that isn't the main attraction. The views are incredible! It seems that every hole has an unbelievable view of Lake Superior. Madeline Island is clearly... More

This is one of the most beautiful courses in the USA, well maintained, challenging, and very reasonably priced. Just fabulous. Best course in northern Wisconsin by far.
