It’s spring! Time to start planning golf vacations in Door County

Let Ephraim Shores Resort be your homebase while you hit the links

Recently, Golf Digest named Wisconsin the #1 state for public golf.

Of course, we’re biased, but the #1 county in the #1 state for public golf is…Door County, obviously!

With ten golf courses dotted throughout the peninsula — and only one of them a private course, there’s no better excuse to plan a few golf vacations in Door County this summer and fall.

After a day out on the courses enjoying those panoramic views, towering bluffs, lush greens, and interesting course designs, you’ll want to have a place to relax and get ready to do it all again tomorrow. Ephraim Shores Resort has you covered there, but first — read on for information on our favorite public courses for golf vacations in Door County:

Check out these courses to start planning your golf vacations in Door County:

Peninsula State Park Golf Course
Located less than a mile and a half away from Ephraim Shores Resort, Peninsula State Park Golf Course is an 18-hole course featuring rolling woodlands and incredible views of the Niagara Escarpment, Eagle Harbor, and the Village of Ephraim. You can also take advantage of the on-site amenities like their restaurant, driving range, large putting green, and professional golf lessons.

If you want to make it a family affair, Peninsula State Park Golf Course’s award-winning six-hole par 3 course is perfect for children or beginners who want to get some practice with the game.

The Orchards at Egg Harbor
A 15-minute drive from Ephraim Shores, the Orchards at Egg Harbor is a 18-hole championship golf course built on 200 acres of orchards, meadows, and mature hardwood trees.

This challenging course is 7,200 yards from the back tees, and winds through a 5-acre lake — talk about scenic! After your round, don’t forget to head to their clubhouse with a full-service bar and grill, a fully equipped pro shop, and a spacious locker room with shower facilities.

Stone Hedge Golf and Pub
Around the corner from The Orchards, you’ll find Stone Hedge Golf and Pub, a nine-hole golf course just a mile off of Highway 42 in Egg Harbor. This is the perfect place to play a quick round, and with club rental available, you won’t even have to pack your clubs! This is a great place to bring a golf group of all ages, especially new golfers who might want to get in a bit of practice.

Stone Hedge also calls its pub “the best kept dining secret in Egg Harbor,” and they’re certainly right about that! Their burgers, sandwiches, soups, and more are a fantastic way to recharge and catch the sports highlights on their big-screen TVs before heading back to your hotel.

Evergreen Mini Golf
Real golf vacations in Door County include the whole family — yes, we’re talking about mini golf! Opened in 2023, Evergreen Mini Golf combines recreation and education through its beautiful eco-themed course, where it displays playful and educational exhibits that teach mini golfers of all ages about sustainability and the environment.
