Updated: Apr 5

Wisconsin isn’t just brats, cheese, and beer, the Badger state also has impressive landscapes with a golfing culture deeply ingrained in its roots. Boasting a recent major championship history, a great lake, and a landscape carved by glaciers, here are five Wisconsin golf trips that promise enjoyable rounds and stunning views.

Kohler Golf Experience

Nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan, the Kohler Golf Experience offers an unmatched blend of luxury and world-class golf. Home to Whistling Straits and the River Course at Blackwolf Run, both designed by the diabolical Pete Dye, these courses have hosted major championships. Expect dramatic views, intricate layouts, and an unforgettable golfing experience. The Irish Course at Whistling Straits and The Meadows Valley Course at Blackwolf Run further add to a diverse playing experience.

Erin Hills  

Erin Hills, located in the rolling hills of Kettle Moraine, gained international acclaim as the host of the 2017 U.S. Open. With a links-style layout and large undulating greens, Erin Hills provides a challenging yet fair test for golfers. The breathtaking scenery and well-manicured fairways make it a must-visit for golf enthusiasts. Erin Hills is a walking-only course.

Sand Valley Golf Resort 

Sand Valley, located in Nekoosa, has quickly become a bucket list trip for golfers. The resort features courses designed by renowned architects Bill Coore, Ben Crenshaw, and David McLay Kidd. The sprawling, sandy dunes and strategic layouts create a golfing oasis, offering a unique and unforgettable experience. The property boasts four memorable courses. 

Wisconsin Golf Trip: SentryWorld

SentryWorld offers a unique parkland golfing experience. Renowned for its stunning floral landscapes and signature "Flower Hole," this Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course combines aesthetic beauty with challenging play. Think botany meets a fantastic golf course.

Grand Geneva Resort & Spa
