We experienced a great day of golf within our foursome. By the 3rd hole we had already seen a dozen turkeys, some deer, and a couple bald eagles hovering around. For people looking for the forest setting to escape suburbia, this would be it. I first played this course in 2014 and we have since been back in 2016 through now. The continued improvements we have seen have made this one of our favorite stops in the Northwoods. The subtle details with new fencing, rock, planting grass, landscaping and a very consistent appearance of each golf hole is encouraging where this place is headed. The course is challenging with tight tree lined areas near the tee boxes, but the greens are receptive and roll very nice. For the three weeks total we spend in Vilas County, there are times we just want to practice. They have constructed a pitching area with a bunker and green near their halfway snack house. It is a nice location if you want to avoid the general flow of other golfers warming up at the driving range. We hope to become summer residents of this area in the coming years and would love to join this club. Well done and we are looking forward to one more round in September!

My wife and I played on a beautiful Friday morning and were paired with a great couple-very nice and pretty good golfers too. The course was in great shape and the greens were pretty quick. Pace of play was very good-we never waited on any hole. A storm came up with lightning that drove everyone off the course just as we teed off on the last hole but it was an enjoyable day anyway. We've played here many times in the last ten years. Highly recommend it!!

Disclaimer: In the age of writing a review and people basing whether or not they'll visit somewhere based on what other people are saying, I am not that person. I will give a golf course a chance wherever/whenever I may be traveling. This instance was a spur the moment business trip to Eagle River for a client review. I was paired with some folks from Southern WI and it turned out to be a pleasurable Saturday. The golf course was jam packed with vacation seekers. Play was slow at times, but as a realist, that is public golf on the weekend in a vacation destination. All staff present was helpful and seemed to be doing anything they could to ensure everyone was having a good experience. This course is surrounded by pretty much remote wilderness and it still embodies a well maintained/laid out stretch of golf holes. The simplistic and uniform conditions are very refreshing for a "municipal" golf course. Various improvements were in progress on several holes as we played our round. Greens were at a pace that was just right for the clientele playing, bunkers appeared to be fair and consistent, fairways were well defined and the rough was easy to navigate out of. Don't be fooled by the "municipal" tag associated with St. Germain Golf Club. This venue is great value at just under $70 and I will plan another visit if I find myself in Vilas County again. Cheers!

Great golfing experience if you hit the ball straight. There is no play from adjacent fairways because there aren't any! LOL The best part is how the course blends in with the natural surroundings and amazing quiet of the northwoods.
