Island View History

We were founded in 1959 near the shores of Lake Waconia by a handful of Waconia-area golfers. The founders, affectionately known as The Rock Pickers, created this golf course on farmland owned by the Lobitz, Peterson, and Schwictenberg families. The original nine-hole layout was fashioned into a challenging track with the help of the then-Interlachen golf professional Willie Kidd.

The Island View founders knew they wanted to become an 18-hole course and optioned land for that purpose. The second nine was added in 1973, and was designed by Island View member George Oftelie. Later updates and improvements were designed by Joel Goldstrand, Garrett Gill, Kevin Norby and Todd Clark.
