Top 20 courses in Wisconsin according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

The best of Wisconsin golf courses features destinations like Lake Geneva, Kohler and the Wisconsin Dells. Also, top courses around Milwaukee and other more rural courses make the grade.

The state has been top of mind for the national golf scene for awhile now, thanks largely to Herb Kohler and PGA Championship and future Ryder Cup host Whistling Straits, not to mention Erin Hills, the 2017 U.S. Open host. Lest we forget, Mike Keiser's latest golf development is Sand Valley, which will have bucket-listers who adore what's happened at Bandon Dunes coming to sample the Midwest version. But there's a lot of other courses in the state worth playing, all of which are more affordable than Kohler and Erin Hills. It's a favorite destination for Chicagoans as well as golfers from all over the Midwest.

Golf Advisor compiled 2015's top 20 courses in Wisconsin using a mix of the courses' subcategory and overall ratings from reviews throughout the year. You can view detailed information of each course by clicking on their course page.
