Bandon founder building Wisconsin course

  •  

    Mike Keiser, the mastermind behind all the courses in the Bandon Dunes family, is going to put his stamp on some open land in Wisconsin. Crenshaw and Coore will build the first one; he has four in mind. Here's the link:

    Nice to read that this is ready to go.  being in Wisconsin have heard prior reports of this and glad its coming to pass.  Wisconsin is becoming a golfers destination with a number of quality courses - Sheboygen/Kohler area with whistling straits:Straits and Irish course, Blackwolf Run: River and Meadow Valley. The Bull at Pinehurst farms. Erin Hills near Milwaukee and now the Mike Keiser Development.   Things look good for Wisconsin golf.

    Heard about this course as well.  Hopefully it's another great addition to mid-western golf. Between WI, Chicago and Western MI there some great golf destinations.

    The course the owner built in Eastern Canada -- Cabot Links is unreal as well.  Coore and Crenshaw are working on a new 18 out there also -- supposed to be spectacular when completed!  http://cabotlinks.com/
