Rated 4 out of 5 by pigdoc Enjoyable course to play
Played mid-day with a friend of mine mid-week. Course condition was excellent, great grass in fairways, greens were great as they rolled true with a lot of undulations and slopes. Rough was medium depth but was a small penalty. Course design was mixed, some holes were pretty bland, others more imaginative. Not a long course but ok. Clubhouse was old and a bit worn. Food in the upstairs bar for lunch was not memorable, but beer was cold. Staff was great. Overall, I'd play again.

Have had the good fortune to play outstanding courses in many locales. Spooner's home course has country club claiber greens -- well maintained and fast. Overall course condition and design is excellent. Historical connection to Vardon shows. Great set of finishing holes. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by u485643891 Best course in the area
The pace of play is always very good. Slower players conscientiously let others play through. The driving range has an excellent area for practicing chipping. All in all, a great golfing experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 Well worth the money.
Our 4-some had a great time. Enjoyabe and challenging enough course. Very playable and in great condition. There is a good vareity of tee boxes to choose from so you have some say in how tough you want to make it. Even with the dry summer, course was soft and greens receptive, so they are taking care of the course. Seemed to have just the right pro-shop and bar/grill for the course and location.

In response to larsba1942 - Thank you for your words regarding Spooner Golf Club being in your "Top 5" golf courses you've played throughout the country. We truly work hard everyday to earn recommendations such as this and value the strong relationships we have established with golfers in or travelling to Northwest Wisconsin. Respectfully I do feel I need to address a few of the comments in your post that misrepresent the type of facility SGC is and what we stand for.
Being that you are from a neighboring community with a number of golf courses, you are aware that a very high percentage of courses in Wisconsin, the Midwest and almost all in northern Wisconsin were affected by a crazy weather winter. BE ASSURED, Spooner Golf Club IS NOW and will continue to be a course prided on providing the very best course conditions and this year was the first in 8 years where we could not play Summer Rules from the very first day the doors opened for the season in late March or early April.
As for pace of play and course difficulty, our pace of play rating is 4 hours to 4 hours and 15 minutes and routinely we meet this mark on even the very busiest of weekend days. This is due to attention in managing play on the golf course with starters and/or rangers and through the "player friendly" golf course that can still be challenging with the many risk reward opportunities, but with 6 sets of tees and manicured treelines it is rare a ball is lost and play is slowed due to "searching". We are proud to be recognized by the PGA and US Kids Golf as a leader in facilitating Family and Junior Golf and have a golf course that enhances this reputation.
Finally I hope you have an opportunity to come back and enjoy the golf course over the late Summer or absolutely beautiful Fall here at SGC. Thank you for your comments and we will do all we can to make your experience one to earn your "Top 5" recommendation each and every time you join us.
