Waupaca Country Club and its unique course have close ties to the rich history of golf in America. “The course was designed in 1923 by Jack Burns, a superintendent at an Appleton, Wis., country club, and a golf lover who is believed to have been strongly influenced by Donald Ross,” says our Golf Professional.
Donald Ross is the famed architect who brought principles of golf design to America from Scotland. Ross, who had his heyday in the 1920s and 1930s, believed in fitting the course to the land he found and that’s true of how our course fits its knolls and valleys in Waupaca. Almost all the holes on this course have water in play.
You’re also going to find an impeccably maintained course lined with mighty trees that glow with color in fall and burst with greenery in spring. The Waupaca River divides the course, and golfers have to cross the river four times during their rounds of play.
Under the 200-year-old oaks and 150-year-old pine trees, bentgrass rolls across our tees and fairways and makes for a smooth quick surface on our tour-quality greens.
Although this is a nine-hole course, it has been imaginatively set up for who wish to play 18 holes. You play your nine; then you go back and play another round from a second set of tees with a slightly different layout and new challenges from your first go-round.
