Spooner Golf Club
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.

Committed to be THE BEST in course conditions, customer service and FUN for people of all ages and abilities.
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.

Course needs special attention to the greens.
I have been playing this course off and on for the past 30 years and except for a couple of years under some questionable management several years ago the course has always been on my top 5 list which includes many courses around the country. I have only two minor(?) complaints: Please adhere to the 8 minute between tee-times policy, too many times we will have groups teeing off in less than 2 minute off the 1st tee. It backs up the course from the get-go and we feel pushed all the way through the 18 holes.
. I understand that the course has experienced a hard winter but the greens on some holes have not fully recovered. Spooner is a great course and many people who play it for the first time find it suprisingly fun but also a challenge for a course in NW Wisconsin.
