20 of the Best Public Golf Courses in the United States – Part 2

A continuation of the series we began last month highlighting the best public golf courses in the US. If there are any you’ve visited that you’d recommend to our followers, please share them with us on Facebook!

Blackwolf Run Golf Course Kohler, WI

Located in beautiful Kohler, Wisconsin, Blackwolf Run Public Golf Course is melded into the very same river basin formed by the flows of glacial runoff in the Sheboygan River Valley.

Blackwolf Run opened for play in June 1988 and was named that year’s “Best New Public Course” in the country by Golf Digest.

Regarded as one of Pete Dye’s crowning achievements, Blackwolf Run has hosted a number of professional championships: the Andersen Consulting World Golf Championships in 1995, 1996 and 1997 as well as the U.S. Women’s Open in 1998 and 2012.

Just miles from the Kohler Spa, a visit to the Blackwolf Run Golf Course could be the perfect blend of golf and relaxation.

This 18 hole par-72 course is perched on a bluff high above the Pacific Ocean.

Winds are ever-present, and the varying elements create a new experience each time you play.

Palm Beach National is a friendly mixture passholders and daily-fee players, both welcomed equally by the best-conditioned golf course in the area. This is Palm Beach County’s most fun and friendly golf course.

When golf course architect Joe Lee reshaped Palm Beach National five decades ago, his intention was to design a player-friendly course, easily managed by the novice, yet with enough challenge for a scratch golfer.
