Are there any camp grounds that have adjacent golf courses?

    Always looking for a campground/golf resort that would offer some kind of package deal without going broke on greens fees and a cart. All I have been able to find around here in Wisconsin are sites that have an adjacent pitch and putt course at best. Probably asking for too much.

    High Cliff State Park - too close to home?? After re-reading... I’m sure there’s no deal on Golf as the park & golf course aren’t affiliated. I do think there is a place by Iola.

    Ft. Ridgely in MN had it's own golf course. Double Nickel in NE on I80 has a golf course directly adjacent to it.

    I have golfed there and camped there but not both at the same time. Yeah, right around the corner plus it is a campground that is pretty low on my list of preferences.

    I was unable to find any reference to the Ridgely golf course on their website. Perhaps privately owned?

    Doesn't Harvest Hosts promote camping at golf courses (and farms and wineries) as their business model? I see several golf courses identified on their site in Wisconsin, and nation-wide.

    https://harvesthosts.com/host-locations/

    They have a "+Golf" package for membership... that's all I know... I'm not a member.

    Now I see they require self-contained units only, RV's essentially. Caters to the big spenders who don't require any services.

    Ft. Ridgely - unfortunately the MN DNR decided to shudder the course just two years ago. It was a unique favorite in operation, layout and a few other things, but not in keeping with DNR mission even though it was 90 years old.

    I know of a campsite with disc golf… and a microbrewery. I'm hoping to get up there for a week this summer.

    Maumee Bay state park in OH has an attached golf course. Also another nice course about 4 miles down the road if that's what you want to take in! Bit of a trip from WI but you asked ;)

    Hard Labor Creek SP in Georgia is great! Campground in a rural area and a challenging, beautiful golf course next door.

    Hickory Knob State Resort Park, but I can't tell you anything about it due to me avoiding anything golf like the plaque. Except putt putt, I like that with the grandkids.
