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 players.
