CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON ANDY NORTH’S 12 HOLE SHORT COURSE
Construction began in September on the Andy North designed 12-hole Short Course at Trappers Turn. Roughly 15 acres between the first four holes on the Lake course were ‘begging to be golf holes’ says General Manager, Patrick Steffes. He adds, “After several tours of the area, it was decided to build something special, a short course to rival any in the country.” An unconventional 12-holes were selected as they laid out perfectly with the land. Each hole is unique, there are large undulated greens, dramatic elevation change and the routing goes over and around ravines that have made the Wisconsin Dells region famous.
Holes range from 70 to 130 yards yet large teeing areas support guest play from a distance that matches one’s ability. Further, large teeing areas allow replay guests the chance to play from a new spot and angle to experience a new hole on each round. “We can’t wait for guests to enjoy these holes. They are going to be a ton of fun,” states Steffes. The course will open in the Spring of 2021.
NEW CART FLEET & GPS IN 2020

Trappers Turn Vineyard
In 2018, along with our friends at Wollersheim Winery & Distillery, Trappers Turn built a Vineyard on property. Located between the Lake and Canyon courses, the beautiful setting is home to a historic windmill and two-acres of grapevines. The vines have been growing for two seasons and following the fourth, the inaugural batch of grapes will be harvested. Wollersheim and Trappers Turn very own brandy will be created. We are excited to taste the ‘fruits of our labor’ and to offer an authentic farm-to-table experience with brandy spirits and specialty cocktails at Trappers Turn.
