Wisconsin Dells, Wis. – Wild Rock Golf Club, designed by the world-renowned golf course architect team of Hurdzan & Fry, was recently ranked #5 on Golf Magazine’s list of “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play” and was also ranked the fourth best “New Public Golf Course of 2008” by Links Magazine.
The course, which opened May 1, 2008, features three distinctly different landscapes that make for a truly memorable round of golf. The first holes wind through cropland and woodlands which are split by a large natural ravine featuring a cascading stream filled with waterfalls and pools. Golfers then head into a dramatic wooded ridgeline where the land falls to the east leaving awe inspiring views of up to 30 miles. Several of the final holes are located around an area that used to be an old stone quarry. Rugged topography, including sand and gravel mounds, line the fairways in this area making the holes both scenic and challenging.
Wild Rock also features unique rugged weathered bunkers that guard both greens and fairways making every round an adventure. Five different tee boxes provide golfers of all skill levels with a comfortable challenge.
Chris Goodwick, Director of Golf at Wild Rock, says “We are thrilled with these honors by Golf Magazine and Links Magazine. I truly believe that our final par 3 is one of the most breathtaking and dramatic par three’s golfers will ever play, and earning these recognitions from these two noteworthy golfing magazines tells me that others agree with this course’s merits.”
