“We have done some ladies nights in the offseason that have been a lot of fun.”
All year round, the Quit Qui Oc dining room is open to serve its popular Friday fish fry.
“We are here all year,” Todd said. “We don’t just turn the key in the locks when November 1 rolls around.”
Throughout the year, Quit Qui Oc is available to host parties—whether the event is a birthday, an anniversary or even a Packer game.
Recently the course has begun to promote a social membership option. “It gives people a chance to be part of something,” Todd said. “Some of our long time members who may not be able to play any more for physical or health reasons, can still stay close to their friends at the course.”
Above and beyond the straightforward golfing opportunities, Quit Qui Oc has worked hard to offer a wide array of competitive, social and instructional golf options.
“We have always emphasized our Mens and Womens clubs as great fellowship opportunities,” Rachel said. “Not only do you get to play in fun events, but you meet so many great people as well.”
The Quit Qui Oc Mens club has more than 175 members and plays in more than 10 events per year including club championships, the C. J. Wiese stroke play individual and team event, the Michelob Open, year-long singles and doubles matches and other tournaments.
Quit Qui Oc’s Womens Club has grown to nearly 50 members, offering eight events throughout the golf season, many of them running parallel to the mens events.
Learning to play
Quit Qui Oc also continues its fine traditions of teaching the game of golf. Both Rachel and Todd are teaching PGA professionals. Both offer private individual and group lessons.
Rachel offers hour long clinics throughout the season.
“The whole idea is to open doors for those who want to learn to play the game” she said.
One of the more unique teaching programs at Quit Qui Oc is the ladies “Learn to Golf” clinic held on Monday evenings.
“We actually get the ladies out on the course with several instructors and go around to help them with different skills,” Rachel said.
“The best way to learn is to go out and play. The beauty of the program is that the ladies get to work on a certain skill, then they get to go out on the course and try it out,” she said. Learning in this way has provided an opportunity for women to get more comfortable with the game so they might enjoy playing with their husbands, friends, family or others.
Junior instruction continues to be focus for Quit Qui Oc’s teaching team. Camps and junior leagues are part of the summer format, and Quit Qui Oc’s newest practice facilities near its Glacier Nine offer great opportunities for young people to learn the game.
Learn to Golf is a Quit Qui Oc program offered for young people, while Get Golf Ready is offered through the PGA and its Play Golf America program.

This year, the course plans to start its own junior tournament, which will hopefully become an annual event.
In the wake of a mild winter and early spring Quit Qui Oc Golf course is great playing shape. “The golf course is in phenomenal shape, maybe the best ever,” Rachel said. The owners credit their head greesnkeeper, Patrick Immel, in his third year, with doing a great job.
“He has done lot of proactive things on the course to improve play from a down-the-middle approach,” Todd said.
Last season, the course took on the project of renovating and reshaping the 32 bunkers on the course. About one-third have been completed, with the intent of making the sand more consistent for players.
Quit Qui Oc offers 27 holes of championship golf,
After purchasing a home
on Lake Winnebago, we decided
to enlarge our home by putting an addition onto it. We wanted to have a larger living room and dining room, and expand the kitchen as well. Peter Kraus came highly recommended to us by Gary Schmitz, a family friend.
Our first meeting was a success, and we were most impressed with Peter’s knowledge, experience, and willingness to listen to our specific needs. The final result is that we have a beautiful
and functional addition that
incorporated all the features that were important to us, as well as some additional creative ideas from Peter.
The quality of the workmanship is impeccable, and everything
was completed ahead of schedule. The most spectacular part
is that the addition is so well incorporated into the existing
including the original 18-hole course and the Glacial Nine. All 27 holes are open to public play.
In today’s electronic communication world, Quit Qui Oc has also extended its lines of communication to golfers and social friends alike through an email communication.
