My Gift to You: 2014 Wisconsin Golf Courses To-Play List

The Wisconsin golf season is finally here, and it occurred to me as I start seeing the hits on my blog going up that people are really excited about playing and getting to new courses. For this reason, I put together this: A listing of the Wisconsin golf courses that I have so far reviewed, in order of price from lowest to highest, complete with all the statistics I typically include at the end of my reviews.

Please feel free to use this to create your own “To-Play” list for this season, and enjoy the pictures, stories and reviews!
