Although the opening hole at Bishops Bay Country Club gives eager players an opportunity to play risk/reward with a watery dogleg, the club’s most noted water won’t come into play until much later. One of Bob Lohmann’s greatest influences on this course was its routing: Players are treated to scenic vistas across Lake Mendota from the highest points of the property, and the closing hole is backed by the body of water, with the skyline of Madison behind it.

Much of the course, however, will not deal with water but the subtle altitude adjustments across the property. The native areas reflect somewhat on the original purpose of the land, and an old grain silo visible from the No. 10 tee will explain why the back nine is referred to as the “Country” nine.

The club recently underwent a renovation from Oliphant Golf during 2019, with emphasis on resizing and relocating bunkers, as well as installing runoff areas for numerous greens.
