Whispering Springs Golf Club
The Secret Is Out - Best Value Course
By Brian Weis
As the publisher of GolfWisconsin.com, I have had the pleasure of traveling throughout the state and journaling my adventures playing 100 plus courses. The badger state nearly boasts 500 golf courses so at the moment I barely scratched the surface. My goal each summer is to play 10-15 new courses. Until recently, Whispering Springs was on my bucket list and boy am I glad to have played the Bob Lohman designed course. After 4 enjoyable hours I will be adding it to my must play list next year.
With fellow golf writers, I often discuss and debate the top ten golf courses in Wisconsin. When asked about my list, I often joke that I have 20-25 that are on my top 10 list. Whispering Springs is now in my conversation. Without question, after playing the course and reviewing the rate schedule it is one of the best values in the state.
Walking in prime season is just $36.00 ($54 with cart) a great deal considering the course features country club conditions from tee to green, if not from the parking lot to the 19th hole.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
