Natural Twosome – Golf & B&Bs

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Wisconsin has major travel news this year. The U.S. Open comes to the state for the first time in the tournament’s history, to a public course, no less.

Natural Twosome – Golf and B&Bs

The 117th U.S. Open is being played at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, marking the first time the storied event has ever been staged in the state. Plus it’s only the sixth time it’s being played at a public course.


We put together a list of the Top 10 Wisconsin public golf courses (and the B&Bs nearby, naturally) to help you tee up your golf getaway bucket list.

Emerald green is the Pantone color of the year. Which makes us think green grass.  Which makes us think golf. If you’re looking for perfectly manicured greens to be an integral part of your next Wisconsin B&B getaway, then use this handy map to plot out which course you’d like to tackle and then cross reference the nearest B&B. English Manor B&B in Sheboygan, Cobblestone B&B in Birchwoord, and Hollyberry Inn in Hayward have a nice golf package offers, so perhaps tee it up there for starters. Hollyberry Inn sent in this jewel of a golf package:


Receive twenty percent off green fees when you stay at Hollyberry Inn B & B. Come play the “4-Star” rated, prestigious and affordable Hayward Golf Club. This “#1 Most played Golf Course in Northern Wisconsin” offers a challenging yet friendly,  beautifully manicured, immaculately groomed course. HGC is just blocks from Hollyberry Inn, where you will enjoy a warm, inviting, comfortable stay, including a scrumptious homemade breakfast before you hit the links. Holly will be happy to schedule your tee times and any other golfing arrangements. Plan ahead to ensure best tee times. (Certain days and times may not be available.) 715-934-4004


Change It Up and Gift Dad a Wisconsin B&B and Golf Combo Getaway

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Why is it that Dads are notoriously more difficult to buy for than Moms when it comes to their annual day? Sure, you can get him tools, or clothes, or a new grill. Ho-hum. Maybe he needs to be sent packing, on a Wisconsin B&B getaway that is. If he likes to golf, get him an overnight at an inn in the vicinity of courses in Wisconsin that play host to big-time events, like the Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits courses in Kohler. Blackwolf is hosting the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open and Whistling Straits was the site of last year’s PGA championship. The easiest way to find a Wisconsin B&B near your favorite course is to search by region. The Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association is also partnering with the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin. The first of Wisconsin B&B/golf packages has just been posted to their web site and one of these might be a nice fit for Dad. An easier fit, we might add, than trying to remember his shirt size.
