With Memorial Day weekend in the rearview mirror, we’re officially in the midst of golf season here in sunny Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Sheboygan County is one of the ten best golf destinations in the world, according to Golf Magazine, as our slice of Lake Michigan coastline has 17 golf courses within 20 minutes of the city’s hub. Most Sheboygan golf courses have three things in common: tree-lined fairways, rolling hills, and well-manicured greens. But several surprises in our region feature unique, diverse landscapes, especially at Whistling Straits, home to the 2020 Ryder Cup. Blue Harbor Resort is not only located along the awe-inspiring shores of Lake Michigan, but we’re within a short distance from three of the best golf courses in Wisconsin!
Pine Hills Country Club
Getting a tee time at a prestigious golf course such as Whistling Straits is challenging because of exhausting restrictions, so we highly recommend researching several other nearby options. And it doesn’t get much better than Pine Hills Country Club, a beautiful, meticulously-landscape course surrounded by lush forestry just west of Sheboygan. Pine Hills remains a crowd pleaser, especially during autumn’s peak! The Pigeon River meanders through several holes, and you’ll also discover pristine bunkers, fairways, and greens. Their grounds crew does such an exceptional job, year in and year out. While many may not consider Pine Hills one of the three best golf courses in Wisconsin, we believe it’s an affordable, gorgeous hidden gem worth revisiting time and time again.
Sheboygan Town & Country
Blue Harbor Resort, home to one of the largest indoor water parks in Wisconsin, is just 6.5 miles from Sheboygan Town & Country. This 27-hole course has less forestry, bunkers, and water hazards than most Sheboygan golf courses, which is a plus for beginners and moderately-skilled golfers. You’ll instantly notice pale rocks enclose the ponds, the fairways are wide, and the pace of play is second-to-none! The fine on-site dining is yet another major perk for those hoping to combine 18 holes with a juicy steak or fresh seafood. If you’re hoping to steer clear of crowds, Town & Country might be your best bet.
Riverdale Country Club
Last but certainly not least, Riverdale County Club is yet another one of the best golf courses in Wisconsin within minutes of Blue Harbor Resort. Locals have come to understand the serene allure of this countryside golf course, but tourists know very little about this hidden gem. Riverdale may not have the “wow factor” of other overpriced, restricted courses in the area, but you won’t find a better pace of play or smoother greens in the state. We guarantee that their head-turning weekday rates will help get your foot in the door.
Top-Rated Wisconsin Family Resorts
After playing 18 holes at one of the best golf courses in Wisconsin, return to Blue Harbor Resort for some afternoon kayaking, beach relaxation, or indoor water park fun. Our family-friendly, four-season resort has on-site shopping, rejuvenating spa treatments, indoor mini golf, and several restaurants, including fine outdoor dining at The Beacon. As one of the top-reviewed Lake Michigan resorts, we’re continuously enhancing our menus, amenities, and on-site activities.
