Wisconsin Favorites: What surprised you most when you came to Wisconsin?

QUESTION

What surprised you most when you came to Wisconsin? To Green Bay? (And yes, “amazing fans” is already a given.)


PLAYER ANSWERS

James Jones: I was really surprised at how far apart the houses were, and how much space everyone had.

Mason Crosby: I was surprised to see how many quality golf courses there were in the area, especially because the season is so short up here. Really great quality golf.

Tim Masthay: I couldn’t believe how efficiently everything runs in the wintertime.  Even if a snowstorm drops a foot of snow on the area, everything is up and running the next day.

Josh Sitton: The amount of snow that comes down at one time.  My rookie year we were absolutely pelted with snow.


Here is more on golf in Wisconsin, provided by Travel Wisconsin:

Featuring many championship courses – including some designed by professional golf legends Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino – Wisconsin is a renowned golfing state. Wisconsin is home to Wild Rock Golf Club, a 7,414-yard Hurdzan/Fry design that was laid out to take advantage of the area’s rolling hills, plentiful water, and limestone bluffs and outcroppings. Hurdzan calls this “one of the top 10 we’ve ever done.” Hurdzan/Fry also had their hand in designing Erin Hills, which has been selected for the 2017 U.S. Open. Among the state’s top courses are Blackwolf Run in Kohler (site of the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open); Erin Hills near Hartford (site of the 2011 U.S. Amateur Championship and 2017 U.S. Open); and Whistling Straits in Sheboygan (site of the 2010 PGA Championship and 2007 U.S. Senior Open).

    hey, don’t forget about Brown Deer Golf Course that used to be the site of the US Bank Championships until US Bank dropped their sponsorship when they almost went belly up a couple years ago. the championships are gone, but the course is still there.

    I could not believe how close Wisconsin is to Minisota, Illo-noise and Michiland. In fact, parts of Wisconsin touch each. How can Wisconsin be so Ko0L and those other places suck so bad?
