Quit Qui Oc: A fun place to be
By Mike Mathes
A pair of holes from Quit Qui Oc’s original back nine show off both the beauty and the challenges of the championship golf course. At left is #12, a downhill gem where the sandtrap on the right has been replaced by a berm. Above is one of the most beautiful and most challenging par-four holes in all of eastern Wisconsin. The 15th hole offers many chances for golfers to excel or stumble, depending on their shotmaking skills.

Quit Qui Oc Golf Course has a simple goal—making people feel as welcome as they can. In short, it’s a fun place to be.

“Whether people are visiting the restaurant or the golf course, we want to create opportunities to help them participate in the amenities we offer,” Rachel Montaba said.

“Quit Qui Oc is all about the people. We are open to the public, but we try to create a sense of belonging. Our staff works hard to create and foster relationships. In a sense, as we get to know our customers, we treat them as part of our extended family.”

Along with her husband, Todd, the couple operates the Elkhart Lake golf course and restaurant that dates back to the 1920’s.

Rachel is a third-generation family owner, a member of the Wiese family, following in the footsteps of her grandparents Carl and Edna, and her parents Tom and Lynn Wiese.

Quit Qui Oc takes pride in serving as a place where people can come to enjoy a fun experience. “We have people from all walks of life who come here to enjoy the golf and the social opportunities,” Todd said. “It doesn’t matter who you are or

what you do for a living. This is just a fun place to be.”

Rachel Montaba said the owners and staff members work hard to get to know the people who are playing golf or enjoying the hospitality of the Quit Qui Oc bar or dining room.

“It’s important for us to get to know

them as friends, not just customers,” she said.

Social opportunities

While Quit Qui Oc has long been known for its extensive golf programs, the course also offers excellent hospitality opportunities.

“We have been trying to build some events throughout the year that keep our customers connected with our bar and dining room,” Rachel said.
