Swing Spots
An abbreviated guide to golf courses near you...
Founding fore
In 1901, park commissioner August Rebhan, considered by many to be the father of public golf in Milwaukee, proclaimed: “Golf is altogether the best open-air game ever devised by man. It is played in places where the air is pure, it gives an incentive for long walks, and that it is doing a vast good for thousands in this city can no longer be questioned.”
Reinhart on rules
With spring in the air, Wisconsin golfers descend on driving ranges and golf courses to enjoy the popular sport. Mequon resident James Reinhart is no different — except he may not be swinging a club as often as he would like.
Kendall & kids
Skip Kendall’s year 2000 season earnings of nearly $1 million clearly attest to his ability to play at a consistently high level in his chosen profession. Although as of this writing, he has not won a tournament, in last year’s tour he finished in the top ten three times.

Golf thrills keep coming
