    Sounds promising. I know that I am looking forward to this becoming a reality.

    Lets hope it goes through, sounds like a neat project.  If it is anything like Bandon Dunes we will be in for a treat.

    Wisconsin is giving Michigan a run for its golf! I'm sure they'll be wonderful courses and I look forward to checking them out, next time I'm in the Chicago area.

    A trip up to Kohler would definitely be worth it , if you have time when visiting Chicago. Heck, we could even meet up to play a round.

    I like the use of Caddies on the course.

    This is a cool concept backed by a very strong team lead by Mike Keiser. No doubt, he will bring in a trusted design team and build a wonderful course. Given the success of the other resorts in the region, I would think Wisconsin is indeed about the become an even more attractive golf destination!

    Thanks for the share Pony!

    It is a quick flight from Boston to Milwaukee...I cannot wait for what will undoubtedly be another Coore Crenshaw hem. Kudos to Mike Keiser, one of the nest golf course and resorts developers of this generation..

    I can't believe I haven't heard of this.  I live in Milwaukee and am very impressed!  Hope all goes through.  Great time to live and golf in Wisconsin...

    This will be a really cool project if it works out.  I'd love to hit Bandon some day.  But this would be a far shorter trip for me.
