The course

Pleasant View Golf Course provides a complete golfing experience. Enjoy 27 holes of well-maintained, championship golf, a nine-hole scenic par 3 course and an outstanding practice range. The course was awarded Gold in Madison Magazine’s Best of Golf Courses for 2018, 2019 and 2020 and Silver in 2021.

The scenery

Mature trees and prairies line much of the course with native wildflowers framing some of the fairways. If looking for a place to bike the trails, view a map here and trail policies are listed here.

The view

The golf course gets its name for a reason. Situated about 300 feet above Lake Mendota, higher points of the course offer views going on for miles, including the state capitol building in downtown Madison.
