continuous improvements for the daily playing conditions.
“The fairways and tees are in good shape considering the winter we had and the greens are coming around too. We had a few more spots on the greens, but the warm weather should help that,” Rachel said.
A major improvement last fall came in the addition of paved cart paths for the Glacial Nine, the newest of the nine-hole golf tracks. “They have been a big hit with our golfers,” she added.
Quit Qui Oc’s 27 holes of golf are just the starting point of a great golf experience.
The original 18-hole layout opened in 1927 and was designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Bendelow. During World War II the back nine was abandoned because of lack of play.
After the Wiese family purchased the course in 1955 the back nine was redesigned to its current configuration which plays 5,249 yards from the red tees, but expands to 6,350 yards from the blue tees.
The Glacial Nine, which was constructed in 2000, presents golfers with many features created during the worldwide glaciation but so spectacularly illustrated in this part of the Kettle Moraine.
The Glacial Nine plays 2,341 from the shortest tees, all the way to 3,003 yards from the blues.
Tee times at any of the Quit Qui Oc Courses can be made seven days in advance.

Instruction and golf services
Golfers get a great taste of that golf experience from the moment they set foot in the fully-stocked pro shop.
Those needing golf gear of any kind can find it at Quit Qui Oc. If rental clubs are needed, brand name clubs fill the bill.
Both Rachel and Todd provide professional instruction. Rachel is a member of the LPGA, while Todd is a PGA teaching pro. Their experience with instruction helps golfers hone their game.
The course offers two practice ranges and a pair of putting greens to help hone the golf game.
Together, the two owner-professionals seek to help others enjoy the game.
“Our Ladies Learn to Golf and Junior lesson program are once again full and off to great starts,” Rachel said.
This summer, Quit Qui Oc is participating in a new PGA Junior League. “We have 10 kids who are playing against four other golf courses in Sheboygan County. It has been a lot of fun and a great experience for all involved,” Montaba said.
This year, the course has added a biweekly couples league. In addition to its normal golf specials presented throughout the season, golfers are invited to check out the Monday Special.
Along with a great golf experience, Quit Qui Oc offers a great social opportunity. The full service bar and restaurant are open year around to accommodate the public.
Quit Qui Oc serves lunch daily from 11 a. m. to 3 p. m. during the golf season and 11 a. m. to 2 p. m. in the off season. The bar and grill are closed on Tuesdays in the off season.
Quit Qui Oc’s grill menu features homemade soups, award winning chili (offered in the off season), sandwiches, and traditional pub fair.
Favorites include the “Weez” burger, salads, steak sandwiches, the Hole-In-One, the reuben and wraps.
Quit Qui Oc’s traditional Friday night fish fry is also a local favorite. Fish night features Quit Qui Oc’s breaded or pan-fried perch, baked cod, all-you-can-eat beer battered cod, walleye and fresh catch of the day. Also included on the menu are steaks, shrimp, salads and sandwiches. Friday serving times run from 5 to 9 p. m. with reservations recommended.
New on the menu are monthly rib nights.
Last season, Quit Qui Oc introduced a special “social membership” for those who enjoy the fine hospitality but may not want to partake in a golf membership.
Finally, QQO specializes in hosting intimate parties, women’s group luncheons and family gatherings. The golf course can customize a menu to fit groups’ needs. Please contact (920) 876-2833 or firstname.lastname@example.org plan an event.
