Because there are so many things to do in Sheboygan, we’ve hand-selected three of our favorites springtime activities for your convenience.
Sheboygan Golf Courses
There are several superb golf courses in the Sheboygan area, which helped earn our county the title of “the seventh best golf destination in the world” by Golf Magazine years ago. Two Sheboygan golf courses specifically stand out among the rest: Pine Hills Country Club and The Bull at Pinehurst Farms. Pine Hills is located on the western edge of town along the lazy Pigeon River, and it remains one of the best-kept secrets in Wisconsin. The course is highlighted by tree-lined fairways, pristine raised greens, and serene water hazards. The Bull, meanwhile, is the only Jack Nicklaus signature course in Wisconsin that’s ranked inside Golf Digest’s “Top 100 You Can Play.” Pinehurst Farms covers over 400 acres of woodlands, wetlands, and the meandering Onion River. The lush forestry makes The Bull one of the most popular golf courses in the Midwest, especially during autumn’s peak.
