Lake Geneva area golf course review

Abbey Springs - Lake Geneva Golf Course

Abbey Springs located on the southwest shores of the lake in Fontana, about 15 miles from the town of Lake Geneva is considered by many to be Wisconsin's Most Beautiful Golf Course. The golf course was built in 1971 and was designed by Killian & Nugent, a well-known golf design firm that has laid out many renowned courses in the Midwest. The course is now a four 1/2-star rated golf course by Golf Digest "Places to Play".

This layout offers a top-drawer golfing experience that will provide wonderful experiences and strong tests of golfing skills. In addition to dealing with uphill and downhill lies, golfers find large sloping greens and water hazards in play on about half the holes. This is a course that has challenged some of the best golfers in the state in amateur and collegiate events. In fact, PGA player Steve Stricker set the course record, 66, while playing there as a college golfer.
