Milwaukee Golf Courses


Golf courses in Milwaukee range from soft and mild to outstanding and difficult. There are several municipal courses around that are lovingly maintained by the city and offer rich challenges for everyone interested in a game. Also, these courses tend to be less pricey; Currie, Whitnall, Dretzka and Oakwood all feature green fees under $40. For A truly elite, though pricier, golfing experience, Milwaukee also has several Golf Digest four-star courses.

Another favorite among those who love a good challenge is The Bog, a treacherous course with every trap from woods to wetlands paving the way for an experience in frustration for novice golfers; even the low-handicappers find this Arnold Palmer-designed course to be tough.
