  • Great view. Relaxing atmosphere. Super knowledgeable staff. Upscale dining. Good for children during lunch but not good for children at dinner time. Food is expensive for dinner but cheaper during lunch.
  • This place is fantastic. My favorite is the wild game ragu (especially with wild bore), but everything is great. I most recently had the salmon which was delicious as well.
  • Played it before the renovation. They were reworking it for one of the women's major. Was still in amazing shape. Challenging but not crazy hard.
  • Ate at the restaurant. Excellent food.
  • I love Blackwolf Run! Keep in mind this is the best course in Wisconsin besides Whistling and Erin Hills. This is a fantastic place to play, both the River and the Meadows course are great. I spray the ball a bit (alot) so I prefer the meadows course. When you are here do yourself a favor and buy one of their house made granola bars (or 10 of them). I sometimes stop here just for those. They will change your life (or at least 5 minutes of it).
