The Bog Course is literally built on a bog, a type of wetland. Over 297 acres of wetlands, rolling hills and habitat were shaped to create this Arnold Palmer Signature Design built in 1995.  A golfers tip encouraged us to visit The Bog course in Eastern Wisconsin.

The practice area is large with target greens including a 4,000 square foot bentgrass practice green. Virtually all the major Wisconsin state tournaments at the amateur and professional level have been held here.

The Bog Course

A bog is a type of wetland that comprises dead plant material not hefty enough to support anything of size.  This presents an foundation for excellent turf growth.  Hence, it is not a surprise that the course is lush.  It’s also 100% bentgrass on tees, fairways and greens.

The twelfth is a short but narrow Par 4. A blind tee shot over bunkers to a narrow landing area sets up a short wedge over a creek to a small green.  It’s reported that Arnold Palmer double-bogeyed this hole on the inaugural round.

And 117 bunkers make a tough test.  Several long tee shot carries into narrow fairways are daunting.

If you’re arranging a trip to the Ryder Cup in 2020 at Whistling Straits only forty-five minutes north, stop for a great round of golf at the Bog course.
