  • I got to say that for 400 dollars I expected to have fun with the round. I met Roger on the third hole. He was a completely disrespectful ranger. Needless to say the round went south because of the un...  read more »
  • The is a gorgeous course that is in perfect condition. It is a must play in addition to Straits and I might even rank it above The Irish Course. For a player in the 5 - 15 handicap area, it is a perfe...  read more »
  • The Blackwolf River greens were some of the nicest greens I've ever putted on: fast and true. Takes a bit to get used to, but then roll it with confidence. Pete Dye did a great job shaping a couple en...  read more »
  • 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).
  • 36 holes of some of best golf in the world. With that said it is too pricey for most golfers. If you want to treat yourself of have between $200-$300 to spend on a round it is a great course. Blackwolf is a probably the best course I have ever played but the cost keeps me from giving 5 stars. Even if you have the coin to play the Kohler courses I'd recommend checking out The Bull which is less than a mile away and in my opinion a much better value for your golfing dollar.
  • Visited Blackwood run for Dinner, got much more than just food. As a southerner, it is difficult to find food that compares to home cuisine, but Kohler, Wisconsin delivers and Blackwood is the Piece de Resistance! Impressive service only compliments that presentation of marvelous food. Ambiance abounds from the rustic dining room that sports a most incredible view. Blackwood alone is worth the departure from the normal vacation destinations.
  • Their lunch menu provides an excellent value with great food and amazing views.
  • Great lunch stop. The food was excellent and the service was phenomenal.
