Course Description & Holes
Championship Golf in Wisconsin Dells
Wild Rock was designed by Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, the architects of Erin Hills, site of the 2017 U.S. Open. The course’s most notable topography is easily the old stone quarry with its rocky mounds and extreme elevation changes, giving it an almost desert-course feel. Two other landscapes define the course – a woodland area with stream and the sandstone ridges for which Wisconsin Dells is famous, and former farmland with iconic red barn still preserved. The 30-mile-away views to the quartzite cliffs known as the Baraboo Bluffs are also breathtaking. In fact, as the designers walked the land in late fall 2004 after the last of the leaves had fallen and saw that clear view, they changed the routing to feature the vista.
The greens are expansive, fast and true, and impeccably maintained, with five sets of tees to satisfy scratch golfers to resort guests. The Declaration bent grass comes through Wisconsin winters extraordinarily well, in turn setting up the greens for an early spring season.
The course is home to the Wisconsin State Golf Association’s Senior Tour Championship and will host the Wisconsin PGA Section Championship in 2016. The current course record is 65.
There is a full practice area with driving range, putting green and chipping bunker.
Wild Rock has two Class ‘A’ PGA professionals on staff and two PGA apprentices. The management team hires people who love golf and love talking golf. Group and private lessons are available.
