ARGUE-ment Golf Course, New Glarus, Wisconsin

"Ya wanna get in on the ARGUE-ment?" Then visit the ARGUE-ment Golf Course and play nine challenging holes in a natural setting, woven into a working farm. The natural flow of the land determines the layout. Corn and Soybean fields border many of the holes. The course plays to a par 36.

Thanks to ARGUE-ment Golf Course, Inc., President, Mark Renner for passing on this great golf quote:

“Golf should be a life-long challenge of a walk through an attractive, natural landscape, and not a giggling drive through an overdesigned and manicured, artificial grass nursery...Golf should not be fair, should test character as well as skill, and continue to put all the responsibility of play on the shoulders of the golfer.”--Keepers of the Game

These scenes are all of the #4 green area. This hole is 145 yds, par 3. The fairway grasses are former pasture ground. All we had to do here was pick up surface rocks and dried cowpies! We were able to do the same thing for about half o #1 and #3.
Our greens are bent grass, but every place that we could not use the existing grasses for fairways and tees has been planted with either a range mix or a fescue blend that would be right at home on any range.
The combination of natural terrain, tall roughs, narrow fairways, and greens that are contoured for natural drainage makes for a course that is challenging, tight, and tough.
