1. Apostle Island Highlands Golf Course
The Apostle Highlands Golf Course, located in Bayfield, Wisconsin, offers nine or 18 holes, carts or walking (not for the faint of heart – this course is built into a hill!). Golfers tee off over a water hazard in the shape of Lake Superior with the tee located in close proximity to where Bayfield is in relation to the lake. The course offers the challenge of rolling hills and blind drives. The view of Lake Superior, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (on a clear day), and down the Chequamegon Bay can make one forgive and forget the challenges of the course. The facilities feature an onsite bar and restaurant as well as an event center, all providing prolonged views of Lake Superior and beyond. Check out the golf package options through the Old Rittenhouse Inn where you can dine and stay in style before, during, and after your day(s) on the course.
2. Chequamegon Bay Golf Club
For a different view of the lake, head the thirty minutes south to Ashland where you’ll find the Chequamegon Bay Golf Club. Only a mile from Chequamegon Bay (as the crow flies), this course also offers challenge and enjoyment for golfers of all skill levels. Choose to play either nine or 18 holes. An onsite bar and restaurant and pro shop round out the offerings.
3. Madeline Island Golf Club
Adventure seekers enjoy taking the ferry over to Madeline Island to experience the Madeline Island Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones-designed course. The MIGC is a private club allowing limited public play with prior arrangements and those wishing to walk onto the ferry (as opposed to driving your car onto the boat) can also make arrangements for a pick-up from and return delivery to the dock, courtesy of the MIGC. Hone your skills with a lesson from one of the club’s pros or just revel in the fact that you’re golfing on an island!
