Golfing in the Wausau area is convenient, affordable and offers spectacular scenery. The rolling hills and heavily wooded area of this Wisconsin River Valley provide a forest setting for several 9 and 18-hole courses, with both public courses and private country clubs from which to choose. Take a closer look at three of the area's many golf courses.
Rib Mountain Golf Course
There's always time for nine holes of golf, and the Wausau area offers several picturesque courses that allow you to get a round in before your other obligations. One of these courses is the Rib Mountain Golf Course, which allows you to work on your short game and enjoy the view as you golf at the base of Rib Mountain State Park. This 32 par, 1,900 yard course is nestled at the foot of Rib Mountain and is one of the more scenic around. A driving range is available for use, as are club and golf cart rentals. The clubhouse is home to Carmelo’s Restaurant – one of the area’s premier dining destinations – featuring fine Italian cuisine and a full service lounge year round. In the summer, relax after your round of golf with a cocktail on the outdoor patio!
Pine Valley Golf Course
If you're looking for 18 holes of golf, the area has several courses to try. One course of note, a few miles west of Wausau, is Pine Valley Golf Course in Marathon. Warm up your clubs at the driving range before trying this 71 par, 6,110 yard course, offering a wooded front nine and a back nine that opens up and is a bit more forgiving. Situated amongst undulating hills and valleys, this championship course offers club and golf cart rentals, a driving range, a pro-shop and lessons. A lounge and snack bar are located within the clubhouse.
Greenwood Hills Country Club
