Where2Golf says: 

Geneva National Golf Club (Palmer course): Just a short drive from metropolitan Chicago and Milwaukee, Geneva National is a natural haven where golfers can enjoy their game and the serenity of the setting. The club features 54-holes of golf, laid out in three excellent courses designed separately by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino. Carved out of the rolling Wisconsin countryside, the layouts take full advantage of their natural woodland and open countryside surroundings.

The Arnold Palmer Signature course is one that ranks with some of Wisconsin's best. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area. The Palmer course also includes a couple of holes played directly alongside Lake Como. A must visit golf club if you are in the area.

Did you know?

Geneva National overlooks Wisconsin's Lake Como, where in the roaring 20s, gambling and drinking were freely available in the bars around the lake. In the 1930s prohibition stopped many of these practices in public, but "speak-easies" became prominent on both the south and north shores of the lake. Many gangsters, including opposing mobsters Al Capone and Bugs Moran, could be found in the area, which was conviniently close to Chicago but across the state border in Wisconsin.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
