  • Even this late in the year the course was in awesome shape. I played the meows/valley course. Must have hit it just right as I was able to play 18 in under 2-1/2 hours. Even if it does take longer dur...  more »
  • Played the River course on Friday Oct. 15th. Really difficult course, even for low single digits. The greens have a lot of undulation and were very very fast. Very smooth too. Can see why it is top ra...  more »

  • The course is very nice with great views but not worth 350 in my opinion. I also thought the customer service was pretty lousy. The Ranger was rude to our group for being 5 minutes behind pace. Overall it was a very nice course but very expensive. For the money, straits is much better!
  • 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.
  • The food was fantastic. Very accommodating staff.
  • 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.
