All photos in this review are of the Gary Player Signature course
Geneva National Golf Club - just 4 miles west of Lake Geneva and an easy drive from Chicago or Milwaukee, features 54 holes of championship golf with designs from the
games masters - Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and Gary Player. The property is carved out of the rolling Wisconsin countryside and features well manicured bent grass tees,
fairways and greens, with five sets of tee boxes on each course.
The amenities here include great membership and lifestyle opportunities including a well balanced calendar of events complimented by exclusive use of a wellness center,
private locker rooms and restaurants along with high quality service. The 60,000 square foot clubhouse features a Grand Ballroom that can accommodate 300 guests, with
capabilities to be divided into smaller rooms for meetings and conferences. An elegant board room is also available.
Facilities in the clubhouse include a well stocked pro shop, the Hunt Club Restaurant & Legends Tavern (with great views of the Player Course). The Grill Room is open for
breakfast, lunch and dinner - and Geneva National can host up to 600 people for golf outings. Practice facilities include putting/chipping greens and a targeted grass range. The
Par For Life Institute offers programs designed to accelerate the progress and add to the longevity of one's golf game, with a variety of lessons from a staff of golf professionals
available. Each course is well marked with sprinkler heads measured to the center of the green, 100, 150 and 200 yard plates in the fairways, and 150 yard posts in the fairways
on all par fours and fives. Pin placement sheets indicate the day's hole locations.
Gary Player Course
The Player Signature features natural wetlands with high native grasses and a variety of risk-reward opportunities. There are 5 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes that
measure 7171 yards/141 slope, 6417 yards/133 slope, 6014 yards/130 slope, 5462 yards/128 slope for women and 4823 yards with a slope of 120 for ladies hitting from the front
tee areas. There are 67 strategically placed sand bunkers and water hazards come into play on 12 holes.
This is perhaps the most challenging course on property, although average golfers will find it very playable from the white and gray tee areas. Most fairways present ample
landing zones, although water hazards (including the newly placed lake affecting the last three holes) and elevation changes call for careful course management. This course
presents the most serene experience on property. For more info, visit our page for the course with direct link at their website by clicking here.
