Wisconsin – Golf

The Ryder Cup is coming

Wisconsin has 500 public golf courses. Fairways designed by major champions, like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, played host to the 2017 U.S. Open, Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic and the PGA Champions Tour American Family Insurance Championship.

Wisconsin has a Ryder Cup connection, with the teams from the US and Europe going head-to-head in 2020 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, which has two courses – the Straits and the Irish.

North-west of Milwaukee, Erin Hills Golf Course in Hartford is a public course that played host to the 2017 US Open, while Lawsonia at Green Lake, which dates back to 1930, has 36 holes of championship-quality golf – the Links Course, with gently rolling terrain and 90 steep bunkers, and the Woodlands Course, with tree-lined fairways and about 80 traps.
