Lawsonia Links is an golf course in Green Lake, Wisconsin. Built during the golden age of golf architecture, the course is know for it’s larger than life bunkering, which was built with some of the earliest earth movers. What exists today is almost surreal grass and sand bunkers throughout the course that pop up well above the fairway. This leads to many semi-blind and blind shots playing over or through them. The par 3, 7th hole is the pinnacle of this earth moving. This “boxcar green” quite literally was built on a boxcar filled with sand, leaving a green about 20+ feet about the ground below it.
“Lawsonia’s historic Links Course has long been considered one of the best classic golf courses in the country. The course has undergone a revitalization over the past decade, including extensive tree work and thoughtful restoration, and a return to ‘firm and fast’ traditional playing surfaces on the course.
The Links features deep bunkers, wide fairways, and a set of putting greens that are as interesting and as good as anything you will find in the country. It is a big, bold golf course that remains virtually unchanged from the day its brilliant golf architects, William Langford and Theodore Moreau, finished construction in 1930. The course is a marvel even before you consider it was built with 1920’s-era steam shovels!”
