Before golf civilized the human race, clubbing primarily referred to an activity performed by a bunch of cavemen, armed with large wooden cudgels, who would go out and dance to disco music. Participate in a sophisticated activity with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get two 18-hole rounds with cart (up to a $92 value), two range passes (a $9 value), two sleeves of balls (a $20 value), and a $10 card toward concessions or merchandise at Kettle Moraine Golf Club in Dousman (a $131 total value).
Kettle Moraine’s 6,406-yard course, rich in wetlands and lush wooded areas, welcomes golfers of all skill levels with three sets of tees. Drive toward well-manicured greens among thickets of trees and ponds ringed with marsh grasses that are populated by lily pads and anti-ball lasers. During two rounds, club-wielders can play through two sleeves of logo balls, practicing trick shots over water traps and bank shots off tree trunks. For practicing without impacting the score, drivers can launch two buckets of balls across Kettle Moraine's driving range. The professional staff, led by PGA pro Rick Callies, leads guests through Kettle Moraine's course and other amenities.
Fuel up after a day full of swings with the $10 card toward snacks, refreshments, merchandise, and edible putters at the Scorecard Lounge. Golfers can also enrich their armories at the fully stocked pro shop, complete with apparel from TaylorMade, Adidas, Titleist, and other top brands.
Kettle Moraine Golf Club's rates fluctuate throughout the day.
Kettle Moraine Golf Club
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.
