About our host:  

At Janesville Country Club you will enjoy one of the oldest 18-hole championship courses in the nation.  It is carefully maintained, wonderfully peaceful, and challenging for golfers of all levels.  Because we are a private club, you can enjoy a round of golf on your schedule - with no tee-times and no waiting.

In addition to open golf, we offer many member golf events and tournaments throughout the year.  We provide a complimentary driving range, golf equipment, on-site storage for your clubs, and private lessons through the on-site golf shop staffed by PGA golf professionals. Its a great time to become a member.
