The first European to visit what became Wisconsin was probably
the French explorer Jean Nicolet. He canoed west from Georgian
Bay through the Great Lakes in 1634, and it is traditionally
assumed that he came ashore near Green Bay at Red Banks.
Wisconsin boasts stunning natural beauty, with abundant lakes, forests and rolling hills that transform through four distinct seasons each year. Wisconsin is also rich in arts, historic and cultural attractions.
The list of high-profile public courses carved into Wisconsin's golf landscape since 1980 is impressive. It includes Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run, The Bull, The Bog, Troy Burne, University Ridge, Trapper's Turn, SentryWorld, Horseshoe Bay and this year Northern Bay in Adams County, featuring replicas of some of the nation's greatest holes.
