Apostle Highlands Golf Course Review

Bayfield, Wisconsin's Apostle Highlands course is both scenic and challenging, but not so tough that the high handicap player can't have an enjoyable round of golf. Its elevation above Lake Superior allow most holes a view of Chequamegon Bay and Madeline Island and the breeze off the lake is welcome on a hot day.

Most fairways are wooded on both sides. That fact and several creeks, ravines, and ponds contribute to a higher than average Lost Ball Index (yet these same features add challenge and scenic value). Due to the frequent change in elevation, golfers walking the course will get their exercise! We've found the greens and fairways well maintained and adequately surviving periods of light rainfall. The facility is family owned and operated and shows evidence of attention to detail one would expect from the owners being on-site. My most challenging hole: #12, a 517 yard downhill double dogleg run, with the fairway sloping right towards a ravine. Guaranteed trouble for a slice or push!

The club house is modest but clean and comfortable with a nice view of the course. In 2010 Apostle Highlands remodeled their clubhouse so they now have a full service bar and a small kitchen with a modest menu of hot food selections. The pro shop offers rentals and some golfing accessories. The riding golf carts were in good condition. Prime time green fees place
it in the moderate price range, but there are discounts for twilight golfing Sunday thru Thursday.

I've been wanting to play this course again but I need either a playing partner or have my wife ride with me as I have a visual handicap which makes it difficult to find the balls in the fairway. Apostle Highlands is one of the few courses I've encountered that charges a rider
fee ($10) so when I am in the Bayfield area I usually end up playing at Ashland's Chequamegon Bay Golf Course which does not charge an additional fee for my wife accompanying me and offers a comparable quality golfing experience.
