Mature trees line the bluegrass fairways of this magnificent course, and the winding Pike River lends character and beauty for a unique country club experience. The hilly terrain offers a challenge for golfers at all levels. Long considered the signature hole and "one of the toughest golf holes in Wisconsin" is the 430-yard 15th. Named Waterloo, it plays from an elevated tee and players must cross the Pike River to a generous landing area that has out of bounds on the right and a lateral hazard on the left, both playing the length of the hole. The long second shot plays to a severely undulating green that lies 20 feet above the fairway.

"The members of Kenosha Country Club are extremely excited to retain Troon Golf as the management team to oversee the day-to-day operations and future of our club," stated Neil Guttormsen, president of the board of directors of Kenosha Country Club.
