Attended a wedding reception with ~160 people. The team at The Bog did a great job of transitioning from cocktail hour, to the dinner, and then the reception. They kept things moving at a good pace, and ensured there was enough help. Overall, the team was pleasant, the food was great, and the customer service was excellent. Important points when couples are looking for a venue for their special day.

course conditions were great. the only gripe our 4some had was that every tee shot was a blind shot. you had really know idea where to hit it. no GPS on carts. serveral tee shots a driver was not necessary, but didnt know that. if I had played there several times i would have probably liked it more.

It is my husband's special birthday today so we made a weekend out of it and drove to Milwaukee to see a Cubs/Brewers game yesterday and then today we played the Bog. I really enjoyed this course. There is a certain great beauty and sporty nature to this course. The starter was very friendly and even sang Happy Birthday to my husband on the first tee! We saw Sandhill Cranes in the shade by the putting green and heard free-range cattle at the end of #2, beginning of #3. I love Wisconsin golf courses for the elevation changes and interesting, sporty holes and starting on hole #12, I started noticing this nature of the course. Even though I didn't play it well, I was in awe of the beauty of this hole. All day, playing the front tees, I got some breaks but also had to hit over water and marsh. Some successfully. At the end of #2 and the beginning of #3, we heard some strange noises from the woods. I videotaped the noise and thought moose or cattle and when I asked the pro shop, they confirmed that there is a free-range cattle farm across the fence. The wooden bridges and flowers, despite the drought, were lovely. Thanks for the memorable and fun day of golf!

I saw an ad in the local paper for the Bog having a Friday Fish Fry. We tried it last week. This place has very nice atmosphere with big windows overlooking the golf course. We both ordered the broiled cod and it was delicious, but the pieces of fish were pretty small. The service was good and the price was a couple of dollars more than we normally pay for Friday fish, but the view made up for it.

The Bog is a Arnold Palmer signature design golf course that is located in Saukville, Wisconsin.  What attracted me to The Bog, besides its natural features and beauty was that it has received many accolades, and hosted several USGA and WSGA tournaments. The Bog is working hard to carve out a niche for itself and gain recognition as a place to host a PGA Tournament. Being so close to Erin Hills, Black Wolf Run, and Whistling Straits the competition is stiff.  I chose to play The Bog while it's still  affordable, with planned improvements to reach the elite status of being a PGA tournament course. The Bog was designed to attract the upscale public golfers, seasonal members, corporate, and charity organizations.  It has the look and feel of a private country club, with a management team second to none.  I spoke with Ted Osmundson (General Manager) and Christopher VanPietersom (PGA Golf Professional) about goals, and challenges for The Bog and was impressed with the changes that are planned and work in progress. This course is an innovative engineering marvel which sits on 300 acres of land and 100 of those acres are wetlands dispersed throughout the course.  Unlike the it's name, The Bog was the first and has the best water drainage system among any course.  Its drainage pipes and sand base ensure a consistent playing surface.  The Bog has maintained a 99.99% playability record for 19 years and was only closed 2 days in that time frame due to surface moisture.  One cool thing about The Bog golf course is its grass!  It has Bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens; Bluegrass rough; Native grasses and wildflowers out of play.  It's the kind of course that would make you want to play barefoot. Being from Florida I'm accustomed to Southern hospitality, however the Northern charm of The Bog was exceptionally pleasing.  As a single I was paired with two members, Dr. Jim Williams and Kyle Smith.  The two of them enriched my golfing experience with home course advantage tips, history about the course, jokes, and personal golfing experiences. Kyle is a scratch golfer and it was sheer joy golfing with him. Dr William's distinguished gentlemanly charm raised my joy of the game to another level. The Bottom Line : The Bog has 5 sets of tees and from the tips it's 7221 yards with a slope rating of 75.3/143.  I played the Green tees which are 6351 yards, slope rating 71.1/133.  The course is very challenging, so be sure to play from the tee box which suits your handicap.  Also, be sure to get a yardage book and definitely use it.  You will cut a few strokes off your game by knowing the course layout and yardage.  The greens are fast and true.  Water comes into play on 10 holes, so play with confidence.  The 117 sand traps are well placed to suck in your ball.  Play with no fear and the traps will be no issue.  For me the signature holes are 5, 8, 12,13,14 and 17, however there is something special and unique about every hole.  After the round make sure to visit the beautiful state of the art clubhouse which overlooks the 18th green. The Pro shop is well stocked with name brand apparel  and gifts. The dining room and grille are full service and there is also a beautiful covered patio.  My lunch was delicious and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend The Bog as a "choice" place to golf.  You can thank me later. Course Review H. Bell (Golf Enthusiast)
