Milwaukee and the surrounding area is a destination for golf, with courses like Erin Hills, Whistling Straits, Black Wolf Run, and The Bull at Pinehurst Farms. These golf courses offer fantastic summer options for any golfer. But what do golfers in Milwaukee do during the brutal winters? Put the clubs in the basement? Pick up a new hobby? No, Milwaukee golfers keep the grind of the golf season going year round.
All of these indoor golf facilities offer golfers the opportunity to gather their buddies in the winter for some competition, refine their skills, or just go whack some balls to get their mind off life for a while. The options include:
1) X-Golf Brookfield
