The Springs Course

The original 18 hole Springs Course, designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr., winds along the valley floor. Rated 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest, it is a classic Jones course, featuring narrow landing areas, sand traps and water hazards that will challenge golfers of every skill level. Nearly every hole has water coming into play giving the course its name and reputation. The fourth hole is a traditional Robert Trent Jones, Sr. par 5. Not real long, big hitters may be able to reach in two. Miss the green, however, and the narrow landing area is full of traps in front with water lurking behind the green. The green is very narrow and tough to hold with long irons.

The par 4 ninth and eighteenth holes wind back to a monstrous double green guarded by water to one side and traps to the other. The par four 18th hole is recognized as one of the top finishing holes in the state.

Madison Magazine said “it’s the Best Par four in the State. This hole has everything. Great view from an elevated tee. Reasonably narrow fairway with woods on the left and water on the right. An ideal finishing hole. Trent Jones knew what he was doing.”

The North Nine

The North Nine is also rated 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest and is equally challenging and visually breath-taking. Designed by Roger Packard and two-time U.S. Open Champion Andy North, the course offers dramatic changes in elevation, well-placed traps and subtly sloped greens.

“Our philosophy is that the landscape should give the course its character, not the other way around. The course has some outstanding scenery and lots of great vistas.” - Andy North

The House on the Rock Resort was basically okay and probably great if you are a golfer as the lawns were beautiful! Everything was clean and the staff was friendly. I did like that there was a separate bedroom in the room. Our reservation was made incorrectly as it was supposed to be at The House on the Rock Inn so keep that in mind as you read this! I did not feel like it was a hotel meant for families with young kids and the amenities were not good in my opinion. There was no coffee available (except at the restaurant) and there was no WI-Fi or signal. Also, the doors to the bathroom did not close or lock and the pillows were sparse. If you just need a place to sleep for the night it is perfectly fine, but I wouldn't use it as a vacation hotel again.

The accommodations could really use a refresh as it seems fairly outdated, but it was all really clean. Unique furniture with a Frank Lloyd Wright vibe in the lobby, though. The staff was friendly and the golf course looked amazing. It might just be the time of year, but the mosquitoes were horrible. Just walking from the parking lot to the lobby, you were swatting them away constantly. And, if you left your car doors open for more than a couple of seconds you were guaranteed to have at least 3 or 4 inside your vehicle. The gym was a lot bigger than I expected and had a lot of equipment and the pool looked great. It had two separate areas and overlooked the golf course.

Decor is a bit dated, but honestly for the price of the room, I think that's more than fair. We had an awesome view off of our balcony, our jacuzzi didn't work though, that was a bummer considering it would have been the perfect thing to warm up with on such a chilly day. The pools and hot tub for the hotel were awesome though.

We were staying shortly before they filmed American Gods, and the hotel was almost completely empty. Shortly after checking in, a ghostly bartender told me of my important role in preserving the history of the overloo.. I mean house on the rock resort. I think.. I'll stay forever.
