The best golf courses in Wisconsin
Few states—if any—can compete with Wisconsin on the public golf front. Public and resort courses are not only prevalent, they are excellent. Of the top 20 ranked courses in the state, 14 are open to public play, the highest pecentage of any state. Many are pricey resort courses like Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run and Erin Hills with $300-$500 green fees, but others like The Bog, The Bull at Pinehurst Farms and Lac La Belle are a fraction of the price. Private golf is just as interesting and diverse, from classical era standouts like Milwaukee Country Club, designed by Charles Alison, and Blue Mound (Seth Raynor), to hidden gems like Pine Hills (Harry Snead, anyone?) and North Shore (Leonard Macomber).
