Here’s our rundown

GOOD, BETTER & BEST COURSES TO PLAY

Milwaukee is a city that prides itself on ease of getting around. In most large cities, traveling any distance to play golf can be a hassle, particularly for a tourist or someone new to a city. But not here. Everything seems a bit more manageable in Milwaukee…or, for that matter, throughout Wisconsin. So don’t rule anything out.

 I’ve categorized the 63 southeastern Wisconsin and two northern Illinois courses by location, quality, and cost. The list isn’t exhaustive, but close.

Key:

Best = Interesting layout; excellent to impeccable conditions

Second Best = Fine test; good to very good conditions

Think twice = Something is missing, but it’s still golf
