Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is home to two well-rated and popular championship golf courses: the Brute and the Highlands. The well-rated and open, links-style Highlands course was originally designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye. It was then transformed in 1996 by Bob Cupp and more recently updated by Bob Lohmann.

Like its longer and more "Brutish" companion, the Highlands is a course that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

Did you know?

Grand Geneva originally opened in 1968 as the Lake Geneva Playboy Club Hotel, a lush property that served as a luxury escape for Midwest travellers. It was the first Playboy Club Hotel to open in the U.S., and brought a touch of Hugh Hefner-style glamour to the community of Lake Geneva. The Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired hotel featured many opulent design elements including an indoor pool with connecting passage to an outdoor pool, two championship golf courses, and a ski lounge designed in the shape of two interlocking snowflakes. Guests were transported around the resort on the hotel’s “Bunny Tram,” and were waited on by "bunny girls" in their signature corsets, puffy tails, and bunny ears.
