Course & Court Sports

Wisconsin golf courses come with a top-notch pedigree that surprises many.

There are some 500 public golf courses in the state, with fairways designed by major champions including Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. The Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic and the PGA Champions Tour American Family Insurance Championship are here, and Wisconsin will host the 2020 Ryder Cup.

Perhaps the most important golf milestone took place in 2017 when the U.S. Open, the grandest stage in golf, was contested in Wisconsin for the first time. The venue was Erin Hills in Erin, just a short drive from Milwaukee, and only the sixth publicly accessible course to host the championship, which says a lot given it was the 117th U.S. Open. You can golf Erin Hills plus the golf the two other public courses in Wisconsin designed by the same designers who created Erin Hills, Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry - Wild Rock in Wisconsin Dells and Troy Burne in Hudson.

Few would argue that it was the courses of Kohler - Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run – that put Wisconsin on the golf map. The newest course, Sand Valley, Nekoosa, in Central Wisconsin, was named the “#1 Best New Golf Course for 2017” by Golf Digest.

Other noteworthy courses include SentryWorld in Stevens Point and University Ridge in Madison.

Time to tee it up with a Wisconsin B&B getaway that revolves around golf.

Two other golf options, by the way - disc golf and frisbee golf. Wisconsin has nearly 300 public disc golf courses, putting it in the top five in the nation for courses and tournaments. Courses range from compact 3-hole layouts all the way up to 27 holes. Most courses are free.

Ultimate frisbee, on the other hand, is a seven-person team sport played on a football field. In this keep-away game, players move the Frisbee by passing, with one point earned per goal in the end zone. Strategy and athleticism define this sport.

Switching gears from courses to courts, Wisconsin is a hotbed for pickleball. You read that right, pickleball, with major tournaments played in Eau Claire, Green Bay, Madison and Milwaukee.

For the full-court experience, pack your tennis racquets and play at well-maintained public courts around Wisconsin.

Whistling Straits offers two courses of dynamic contrast and world-class prestige. Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines The Straits®, sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Borrowing influences from Irish links courses, The Straits has fescue fairways and massive sand dune bunkers. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland and dunes aspect of The Irish is a deceiving tranquil landscape.

Experience these two must-play courses crafted by hall-of-fame designer Pete Dye and ranked among the best in the United States.

The Bog,  Located 25 minutes north of Milwaukee. Designed by Arnold Palmer. THE BOG is a public 18-hole, Par 72 championship layout, playable from 5,110 yds - 7,221 yds to all skill and courage levels, flowing through 297 acres of woods, wetlands, rolling hills and wildlife habitat.

Erin Hills. Long before golf was played at Erin Hills, the 652 acres of pristine land was host to icy fingers and streams from the last glacier to cover south central Wisconsin. Rivers carved graceful features into the landscape, turning the Kettle Moraine into the diverse region that it is today. Architects adopted a minimalist approach in designing Erin Hills, as nature had sculpted the land so well that the golf holes seemed to emerge from the property.
