Golf at Royal St. Patrick's
Blessed with an incredible piece of Wisconsin broad lands, Royal St. Patrick’s Golf Links was created in 2003 as an inspiration to early Scottish / Irish golf heritage. The out and back Championship Links layout meanders through 500 acres of rolling terrain. Eleven crystal clear lakes and wind swept golden fescue grass; not only adds to the beauty of the residential community, but also creates a challenge for our daily fee play and as well as outing and league players.
With a convenient location along Hwy 41, halfway between Appleton and Green Bay, the Links and Crosswind Sports Pub & Grille has become a favorite spot for friends or business associates to meet, a quick escape from work, or a gathering spot for golf outings and leagues. Whether you need a meeting room, lunch and golf or you participate in a large charity fund raiser, Royal St. Patrick’s not only has the facilities, they have mastered the details of an enjoyable event.
The staff at Royal St. Patrick’s believes you deserve a great experience and we have gone to great lengths to ensure the quality of fairways, greens and tees remain are the best playing surfaces for your game. Our tees are a prototype grass, mowed to a height that rivals some course’s greens. We offer five sets, which allows for varying abilities to enjoy the Links, but also gives us versatility in setting up the course different each day to keep your rounds unique. Our gigantic fairways are bent grass and in addition to their flawless appearance, many players claim they are the best they have ever played. Combining a nice cushion to get under the ball, and a firm bottom to shallow out a descending blow, all abilities rave that we make the game too easy. Our greens are special and unlike most others. Renowned as some of the smoothest in the area we have a pure sand sub-surface. Ball marks are minimal, and rain storms wick through the sand layer in minutes returning these beauties to their original putting integrity. Lacking severe or silly undulations, our greens are subtle and challenging. While all putts look “make-able”, it takes rounds of study to solve their Links-like riddles.
We are especially proud of our cart fleet and the pride ourselves in ensuring your “riding” round is one of value and enjoyment. Our covered cart barn protects our fleet from filth and weather elements. Having one of the few electric fleets in the area, we know you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the Links, and the peace of mind that electric is truly a “green” initiative. Sure we pride ourselves in the way they are cleaned nightly, in the service records we keep, in their flawless presentation awaiting your arrival, but the best thing we have is our paved cart paths. Over 7 miles of continuous path ensures your round will get played come rain or shine. It ensures your bag and shoes will return to your car free of mud and dust, just like you expected. Lastly these paths ensure that no damage will be done to the playing surface. This assists us in keeping a promise about our fantastic conditions no matter what the weather deals us.
Our Practice Facility blows away our competitors. Our massive double-sided driving range has two kinds of grass tees, a dedicated teaching area, and four target greens with bunkers surrounding. Numerous flag locations are all equipped with Laser Links prisms. We mow sections of our driving range to fairway height creating interesting targets and realistic fairway widths to better hone your accuracy. Besides all that, it just looks really cool. We offer a huge practice bunker for both greenside or fairway bunker shots, and two practice greens. A massive tee area ensures quality, level turf grass. New range balls are purchased yearly. I would encourage anyone who takes their practice serious, to buy one of our yearly range passes. Still not satisfied, PGA Teaching Professional Tim Desormeau is always on hand and would love to provide you instruction. To learn more, please click here: Golf Instruction.
