Kettle Moraine Golf Club's 18-hole course weaves through an emerald tapestry of tranquil wetlands and towering arbors for 6,440 yards of leisurely golf. While not an overwhelmingly long course, length and precision off of the tee will allow players to cut corners on the course's multiple dogleg fairways, though airborne orbs must remain vigilant of the course's rippling ponds, thickets of marsh grasses, and naturally blossoming bogey plants. Alongside the pristine par 72, clubbers can groove shots at the club's driving range, where they may encounter PGA pro Rick Callies sanding down the rough-edged swings of attentive pupils. The course's gently undulating fairways and greens converge at the Scorecard Lounge, where guests can recapitulate memorable shots over a frothy pint or glass of freshly squeezed range balls. The Club also encompasses a fully stocked pro shop and a stately banquet hall, which overlooks the grounds and sports an elegant stone fireplace.

A private club for more than a century, Rolling Hills Country Club has opened the gates to its immaculate emerald corridors, inviting golfers of all stripes to drive, pitch, and putt their way across its 6,540-yard, tree-lined course. Sculpted through the rolling clay of the Wisconsin countryside, seven of the course's holes maintain the same shape, location, and old-timey mustache of the original 1896 layout. Streams and ponds complicate passage on several holes, including the par 5 fifth hole, where ponds on either side of the fairway contribute to the 539-yard behemoth’s distinction as the course's most difficult. After hacking their way through the pristine par 71, clubbers can retreat to the clubhouse, which boasts a pro shop stocked with apparel and accessories, a full-service bar and grill, and a locker room where players can change clothes and sample the flavors of grass caught between their shoe spikes.

Driven by a desire to share the life-changing potential of martial arts, Dean Konley founded American Dojo in 1994. But his journey to that point wasn’t easy. As a child, Konley struggled with dyslexia, a condition that followed him into adolescence. Weighed down by bullying and constant frustration, he resorted to destructive behavior. Then, Konley found martial arts. Practicing martial arts gave Konley an outlet, and it quickly became a source of the success, discipline, and self-confidence he’d lacked in other areas of life. Konley earned his first black belt in 1986 and hasn’t quit progressing since.

Today, alongside his wife, Virginia, and a staff of highly trained instructors, Konley heads two American Dojo locations. Both of Konley’s facilities are family-oriented, and both offer classes for students as young as 4. Beyond empowering its members through goal-oriented lessons and programs, American Dojo opens its doors for birthday parties, too, allowing youngsters to burn off energy in a more positive manner than teaching the dog how to count cards at the casino.

Deertrak Golf Club's 18-hole course is characterized by numerous bodies of water, most notably Alderley Lake, which borders playable terrain along the course's western edge. Opened in 1986, the course layout sends players skimming over 6,400 yards of manicured fairways and greens.

More than 34 flowerbeds and eight water fountains lend grandeur to the course's design, and two cascading waterfalls give errant golf balls one last thrill before their final swan dive into the abyss. Before players finish their round and count up divot scores, they must first clear the arduous stretch found at holes 14–17, featuring two long par 5s and a tee shot on the par 3 17th that must clear three bodies of water en route to the green.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,363 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 68.6 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 115 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

Paganica's 18-hole golf course spans 6,576 yards of tree-lined fairways for a challenging but player-friendly layout. Water hazards come into play on seven holes, including the signature fourth hole, a 427-yard par 4 where approach shots must carry 186 yards of water to reach the green and spare golf balls the trouble of befriending barnacles. Throughout the round, well-aimed drives will be necessary to bisect the course's narrow fairways, setting up favorable shots into moderately fast greens. With three tee options, the layout challenges aces when played from the tips, and forward tees cater to beginners or those mistakenly teeing up a bocce ball.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,576 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 70.0 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 116 from the farthest tees
