Located in central Wisconsin, SentryWorld is a parkland style course that was the brainchild of late Sentry Insurance executive John Joanis.  Built in the early 1980’s by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. the course saw a renovation in 2013 and again in 2020/21 as it prepares to host the 2023 US Senior Open. One thing that hasn’t changed is hole number 16, the world famous “Flower Hole”.  With more than 33,000 flowers this hole is stunningly beautiful as it is challenging. Besides the flowers, SentryWorld is blessed with lots of water and lots of sand to challenge you at every turn and making for a memorable round of golf.  SentryWorld is a must play for any golfer.

SentryWorld’s set up includes one of the best practice facilities in the state if not the Midwest.  It has two teeing areas, two practice greens, and a short game area.  In addition, the SentryWorld sports complex includes indoor tennis courts that are used also for volleyball, pickleball, bags and weddings. PJ’s restaurant is located inside the sports complex and a great way to wind down after your round and enjoy food and drink.

SentryWorld is located in the heart of Wisconsin right off of Interstate 39 and under a 4 hour car ride from Chicago and Minneapolis, approximately 2.5 hours from Milwaukee and 1.5 hours from Madison and Green Bay.
