Golf's greatest players have always been judged against the game's legendary holes. Golf's legendary holes have been defined by their unique characteristics. Here at The Castle Course, we have created a masterpiece inspired by some of golf's most celebrated holes. This one-of-a-kind, replica golf experience takes guests into an environment most could only dream about.

At The Castle Course, you won't simply be playing golf; you'll be competing shot-for-shot against the most legendary holes in all of golf!

The Castle Course is an 18-hole Championship golf course featuring 7 holes replicated from PGA Tour courses; including Augusta National, TPC Sawgrass, Firestone, Oakland Hills, Oakmont, and Bay Hill! Being the only replica style golf course in the Midwest; surely makes this a vacation getaway for golfers of all ages and skill.

Located just 30 minutes north of Wisconsin Dells, but a million miles from ordinary!

Beautiful course that is well maintained. Several holes are replicas of famous courses throughout the US. All carts equipped with GPS systems.

We had a group of men who came to play and stay recently. They raved about the course and the improved conditions and asked us to comment. We all know it's a great layout. We enjoyed the bev cart and the beautiful bar/restaurant overlooking the Island hole (#10) after golf. The GM Darrel Malek and his staff deserve kudos for... More

We played here one day of our 3 day trip to the Dells area . The course has several signature holes from famous courses. The island hole was especially challenging. The rest of the course was average. The tee boxes aren't cut short and the fairways are regular grass. I would have expected bent grass fairways and tee boxes. They... More

My wife and I played the Castle Course in June 2016 and to be honest, it was not the best of experiences. From the insane bag drop area to the goofy ProShop staff the whole time we were there it felt like we were in a Saturday Night Live sketch (and not one of the good ones). Here are a... More

This is a replica course mirroring the best golf holes in the US! Challenging, exciting, and FUN! Golf carts are new with GPS and data links. Food and beverage carts are low key yet readily available. Driving range is HUGE, no matter how crowed, lots of elbow room and space between tees! Pro shop is well stocked and very reasonable...

We have played the Castle Course 3 years in a row. This year, the course was in the best shape ever! Greens were firm, yet held our chip shots. Recommend this course to everyone! Food is excellent in the clubhouse as well. Don't miss this one!

Loved this course, replica holes are so cool!!! Our price was awesome at $50 for 18 holes. Great for the golfer who has never visited courses outside of Wisconsin.

Course condition and speed of greens very good. Courteous golf shop staff. The replica holes are fun to play, even though they not be exact replicas. Good enough for most of us.

I have played here over several years. It's scenic, and you need to have a pretty good golf game. The course is relatively open, so, for someone like me who is not necessarily in the fairway, you still have a shot. This course is relatively expensive, in my opinion, for central Wisconsin. The restaurant inside is practical, your typical golf... More
