The nine-hole course at Weymont Run Country Club leads players on a rambling chase through treacherous dogleg turns and narrow fairways. Built in 1971, the track extends for 3,124 yards over 84 bucolic acres, nuzzling up against dense forest on four holes and forcing players to remain wary of water hazards on two. The club also allows ample room for practice at its driving range, a perfect solution for those needing a pre-round warm-up or a testing site for a homemade catapult.
Course at a Glance:
The Crystal Grand Music Theatre allows audiences to get up close and personal with top performers in an intimate 2,000-seat setting. Night Ranger—’80s arena-rock legends and sellers of millions of albums—takes to the recently renovated stage for one night only, treating fans to their signature melodic fusion of hard-rock intensity and radio-friendly hooks. Rock out to the band's beloved epic power ballads including “Sister Christian” and "When You Close Your Eyes," as well as ripping guitar-driven hits such as “(You Can Still) Rock in America,” a pointed response to the Regan administration's brief ban on scissors and paper. The Crystal Grand Music Theatre's size ensures every concertgoer has a clear view of the stage, and its innovative design and updated acoustic technology ensure that every chord, beat, and "motoring" evokes the appropriate head-banging response.
The laughter of children echoes through the dense pine forest and across the sandy beach before breaking on the lake's water like a crystal vase smashed with an inflatable hammer. Each week, new groups of kids explore Camp Lakotah's 126 acres alongside Little Hills Lake, engaging in more than 30 activities within its state-licensed and American Camp Association–accredited facilities. Campers engage in aquatic play, land-based sports, and arts-and-crafts sessions, honing both their physical fitness and creative sensibilities.
Staffers cater to each camper's needs throughout the week, guiding each individual toward activities focused on his or her personal goals and interests. The camp can serve vegetarian and diet-restriction-conscious food, and counselors can sing all campfire songs in the styles of both Bruce Springsteen and Andrea Bocelli.
As the owners of Skydive Adventure, Bill and Donna-Marie Hasenfus run a pretty tight ship. For one, their company is a member of the United States Parachute Association, ensuring everything from its staff to its equipment is up to par. Bill himself has been jumping out of planes and training students for nearly half a century. He puts that experience to good use at Skydive Adventure: for the past two decades, the company has taught up to 1,500 first-time students in a given year. For those who just want to feel the rush of a skydive—and enjoy a bird's-eye view of Wisconsin's lakes, rivers, and seasonal changes—Skydive Adventure also offers tandem jumps.
Experts in extreme motor sports and racing machines, Big Power Sports' mechanically minded crew revs up and rents out high-speed watercrafts for jetting around Wisconsin's idyllic waters. Relegating the snowmobiles to the garage for the summer, Big Power Sports breaks out a fleet of Yamaha WaveRunners on which to cruise the defrosted snowmobile track, Green Lake. With more than 11 square miles of open water, the placid playground hosts scores of fishing boats and kayaks for the pilot to rocket past as the passenger soundtracks the event by singing power ballads from the back of the jet ski's dual saddle.
Embodying the spirit of the frontier, Pioneer Pub embarks on a culinary tour of classic American eats with its menu of homemade pizzas and half-pound Angus burgers. Accessorizing cooks ready dough disks for the gustatory ball with a variety of pizzas, including the Pub Special festooned with sausage, pepperoni, and a smattering of veggies ($13 for 12", $18 for 16"). Salsa-verde flurries and southwestern seasonings dust the Santa Fe burger's half-pound of meaty terrain ($6.99), and avalanches of coleslaw and shoestring fries bury the deep-fried walleye pike ($12.99). Taste buds pack the Philly cheese steak ($7.99) before trekking through sudsy Guinness rivers or navigating the fruity billows of the eatery's ever-changing wine list, or sample local brews at upcoming beer tastings.
