Whispering Springs Golf Course

Whispering Srprings - wall construction

Wall construction using ledgerock mined on site (inset).

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin  This 18–hole daily–fee golf course is the centerpiece of an upscale residential housing development overlooking the shores of Lake Winnebago in central Wisconsin. The site offered some unique construction challenges that Golf Creations turned into opportunities to enhance the golf course. A layer of ledgerock indigenous to the site ran through a majority of the proposed fairways. Rather than blasting and removing the rock, the material was mined and slabs of ledgerock were placed around the golf course ponds, clubhouse and within the adjacent development, providing the entire project with a sense of cohesiveness.
