ALPINE VALLEY (262)642-7374
Lake Geneva area golf course review
In the Kettle Moraine area of Southern Wisconsin, Alpine Valley Resort offers picturesque 9 and 18 hole courses set along the banks of Sugar Creek and in the surrounding
wooded areas. Alpine Valley is a unique year-round resort, offering on-slope lodging during the winter ski season, golf during warm weather and a myriad of recreational
activities year round. Although this is a 27-hole layout, the photography was taken on the Summit/Meadows course.
On property there is a Pro shop, Alpine Dining Room serving breakfast lunch and dinner, and the Valley View Lounge. Practice facilities include a short iron practice range and a
spacious short game practice green for chipping and putting. A variety of lessons from a staff of golf professionals are also available.
There are 3 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes that measure as follows:
The Summit/Meadows plays to 6107 yards with a 125 slope, 5793 yards, and 5090 yards for ladies hitting from the front tee areas. The Meadows/Sugar Creek plays to 6018 yards
with a slope of 124, 5699 yards, and 5042 for ladies. And the Sugar Creek/ Summit plays to 5873 yards with a 123 slope, 5674 yards, and 4926 yards for ladies.
Yardage info is not hard to find from anywhere on the course. 100, 150, 200 and 250 yard markers in the fairways are measured to center of the green to help with club selection
while on the approach. Small indicators on the flagsticks provide golfers with a front, middle, or back hole location on each green.
There are 65 strategically placed sand bunkers and water plays an important role in the design as 13 holes have hazards in play in some shape or form. Elevated Tee boxes and
greens add a significant elevation changes to this layout which still provides some flat landing zones causing even lies. Putting surfaces, although sometimes elevated, are on
fairly even ground causing very little slope or undulation.
