Glidden Lodge Beach Resort has partnered with Horseshoe Bay Golf Club to provide the resort’s guests with access to the otherwise-private 18 hold championship course.
Through October 2009, registered guests at Glidden Lodge, with a minimum of a two night stay, may enjoy Horseshoe Bay Golf Club for only $99 per golfer. The fee includes the use of a golf cart. For groups of four players or less, tee times may be made beginning 10 days prior to date of play. Special arrangements can be made for larger groups.
Golfers with this package also have access to the Club’s facilities for lunch and dinner.
The Links-style layout plays 7,101 yards from the black tees and will challenge golfers of any skill level. Winding through old Door County apple orchards, the course has been rated #7 in Wisconsin by Golf Digest Magazine. The top 10 also include the famous Pete Dye-designed Whistling Straits, Blackwolf run, and the Jack Nicklaus-designed The Bull at Pinehurst Farms.
Designed by renowned architects Rick Robbins and Brian Lussier of Robbins and Associates International, the Horseshoe Bay course was constructed in 2000 by Ryan Incorporated, Central.
Reviews of the course on Yahoo speak volumes. One reviewer calls Horseshoe Bay “…probably one of the most professional golf courses in the midwest.” He adds that, once you get on the course, “…you are awe-struck. The course is flawless.” He also calls it “…a one-of-a-kind place.”
Another reviewer states: “This is one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. Very well maintained and so quiet that even when I hit a bad shot it doesn’t bother me because all I have to do is look around and it makes me smile again!”
