Golf – by Todd Weir, President of the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Owner of Pinnacle Plumbing, LLC

I am very fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of Wisconsin. Green Lake has in its immediate surroundings four stunning courses that provide 99 holes of wonderful golf. The city of Green Lake is home to the oldest golf course in the State of Wisconsin. Just two miles west is one of the top public courses in the country. A 10-minute drive to the north you will find yet anothergem of a golf course. Finally, a quick 20-minute drive west offers a unique experience as well. All ofthese courses have changed over the years. Holes have been added, foliage has been removed and yardages have been modified. The changes have made these courses that much better. Tuscumbia Golf Course is the oldest course in the state, located in the oldest resort town west of Niagara Falls. That alone should make you want to come play this course! Its traditional style offers you the opportunity to play among mature tree lines and straight fairways. Accuracy off the tee is essential. But not to worry if your shot has a bit of a slice. The Golf Courses of Lawsonia has been ranked in the top 75 public courses in the country. They offer two very distinct courses: The Links and The Woodlands. Both courses play exactly as they are named. With recent improvements on the Links, you feel as though you are golfing in Scotland. The views from both courses are spectacular, and rarely do you play a round of golf without spotting deer, turkey or even bald eagles. Mascoutin Golf Club is set in gently rolling hills along the Fox River. They offer 27 holes of championship golf, and it has everything you could want in a golf course. From lengthy par fours to reachable par fives and multiple water holes, this course has it all. With such a beautiful setting, men, women and juniorgolfers alike can enjoy the appeal of Mascoutin. White Lake Country Club in Montello is carved out of ancient glacier lands, nestled among hills, woodsand ponds. It offers three sets of tees on each hole to accommodate golfers of all abilities. You can play 18 holes of golf and then head to the sandy beaches of White Lake to complete your day. Considering myself lucky to be living in Green Lake is an understatement. Not only does the lake provide opportunity, but having access to four incredible golf courses is equally fortunate. Make it a point to come and play in Green Lake and enjoy “The Good Life.”
