Designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, The Bog?s 7,221-yard layout sprawls across 297 acres of tree-lined fairways, wetlands, and rolling , mounded terrain. The well-bunkered course incorporates all of the native surroundings into one seamless, award-winning layout, in which golfers must send balls somersaulting over intervening water hazards, avoid sprawling thickets of native tall grasses, and resist the urge to forsake humanity in favor of the vibrant ecosystem of the Cedarburg Bog, which forms a natural border on multiple fairways. Hole 17?a par 5 that forms the longest and most demanding hole on the course?embodies many of the course?s distinct characteristics, as stick-flickersclubbers drive from a low, water-kissed tee-box before climbing an uphill, 593-yard split fairway that doglegs left around sprawling waste hazard areas and into a green fortified by six bunkers and mounded rough. A duo of PGA-certified instructors roam throughout the course and its adjacent driving range, imparting score-shaving advice in lessons and fending off rogue windmills hoping to upgrade from their mini- golf residences.

Golf Digest course overview
Baehmann's Golf Center welcomes golfers of all ages and skill levels to fun family outings of golf, miniature golf, and driving practice at all times of the year. PGA professional instructor Dan Gogin helps players perfect their swing, while foot-golf courses combine the skills of soccer and golf for fun days out at the course.
Awarded with numerous accolades from the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin, The Golf Club at Camelot earns recognition for the course's pristine playing conditions of wooded hills and valleys whittled into the landscape by ancient glaciers. Water flows into the picture on half of the holes, including twice on the par 5 ninth, where the fairway bend features an elongated lake and makes players hit their first and second shots with hydrophobic golf balls. On the back nine, the par 3 13th hole places golfers 120 feet higher than the green on a tee box that affords panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and acts as the best place to spot outlaw foursomes on the lam.

From the tee box on the fourth hole, golfers might notice something familiar about the green at which they're aiming: it's in the shape of Wisconsin. The geographically-inspired green is just one of many novel features that make up Missing Links 9-hole, an award-winning par-three golf course, which was designed with the help of Jack Nicklaus. Ponds and berms splotched with native grasses characterize the terrain throughout the course. Before sticking their tee or railroad spike into the soil on the first hole, golfers can warm up at a practice facility with a grass tee driving range, putting greens, and practice bunkers.
For more than 45 years, High Cliff Restaurant has resided at the gates of the High Cliff State Park, welcoming visitors into the verdant landscape of Northeastern Wisconsin. Between Lake Winnebago and the High Cliff Golf Course, the stone exterior gives way to a spacious interior, where each steak or fillet of fresh fish is served with a side of picturesque views and a fork. Banquet halls and a catering menu accommodate groups of up to 500 guests, making High Cliff Restaurant a perfect place for large family reunions and upscale food fights.
Stretching 2,934 yards across the landscape from the longest tees, Bridgewood Golf Course presents players with a nine-hole layout made challenging by multiple water hazards and small, fast greens. As golfers gun for the par of 35, they must contest with ponds that come directly into play on at least eight different parts of the course. The park-like setting and shorter length provide an excellent opportunity to walk or somersault through the course, though golf carts are available.
