Who's Most Coachable?

Take a woman who knows how to swing a tennis racquet, but has never picked up a golf club in her life, and you have the makings for the quintessential "beginner's" golf lesson. A number of golf courses in the area, including Wild Rock Golf Club and Trappers Turn Golf Club, now have golf academies, the perfect camp for aspiring juniors and anyone else who wants to improve their game. But for someone who doesn't know the first thing about clubs, reading the greens, scorecards, carts or golf etiquette, even a beginner's lesson seemed a leap of faith. It turned out to be a good leap at The Kalahari Golf Academy at Trappers Turn. Waiting for me when I arrived at Trappers Turn was Jason Manke, Director of Instruction. He reassured me we would just be getting a feel for basic technique. Big sigh of relief. Manke explained that they offer everything from a half-hour lesson to a full five-day course. Their golf academy runs year-round, moving indoors to the Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center during the off season where Manke sets up golf simulators. You can imagine what a hit that is with corporate groups. Back to my swing. We spent our time on a practice green, away from the eyes of experienced golfers. Manke was patient and motivating, congratulating me on successfully lofting the ball each time, except for that one I missed entirely. Our conversation veered from technique to the make-up of his classes. Interestingly, while less than 20% of their tee times go to women, nearly 70% of the adult participants in their golf lessons are women. I was entertained by his analysis. "Women are more willing to process direction and accept constructive criticism." So true. Here are two quick tips from Manke for all of you coachable beginners out there.

  • Develop a consistent set-up, ball position and grip. Making tiny changes at that point leads to quick improvement.
  • Visualize a baseball or softball swing, tilted over at the hips so the club travels on an arc near the ground. Then, couple that with all your weight ending up on your front foot, your belly-button pointed to the target and your rear toe pointed straight to the ground. There, you've learned the basic golf swing.

Jason Manke was honored as the 2008 "Teacher of the Year" by the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin and he's a finalist for the 2009 "Teacher of the Year" award from the Wisconsin PGA. View all Wisconsin Dells Golf Courses.

Could This Be The Next French Riviera?2010-04-01Wisconsin Dells has an alter ego and it's all about luxury, glamour, glitz and pamperingRead More
Could This Be The Next French Riviera?

There's no denying the Dells is "kid central." Families, extended families, family reunion groups, groups of friends with children in tow -- you get the picture -- have made the Dells their preferred vacation hangout. So could the rumblings be true, that Wisconsin Dells has an alter ego that is high-end and geared towards grown-ups? Here's how the evidence stacks up.


Luxury Wisconsin Dells Resorts

Luxury Digs


Sure, the water park resorts are grand, but try a golf villa at Chula Vista Resort or a private adults-only spa villa at Sundara Inn & Spa, and you'll know you've arrived. These are so sophisticated and so richly appointed, you probably won't want to leave.





Wollersheim Winery - Dells Area WineriesFINE WINE


Not everyone can afford to hop a plane to Italy, or France, or Napa Valley for that matter to indulge their taste for fine wine. But certainly a trip to Prairie du Sac, just a half-hour drive from the Dells, should be manageable. There you'll find the Wollersheim Winery in all its historic splendor. Originally established in the 1840s by Hungarian Count Agoston Haraszthy no less, and nestled in the hills overlooking the Wisconsin River valley, this property features buildings with incredible character, outdoor seating with views to the vineyard, lovely gardens and a new tasting room. There's a new winery in Wisconsin Dells too - it's called Fawn Creek Winery. Or, if you prefer your wine served with a fine meal, ask to see the wine list at Field's at the Wilderness or the Del-Bar. Both restaurants in Wisconsin Dells were designed by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, and both have graced the pages of Wine Spectator Magazine.



Wisconsin Dells Spas - Spa SerenityIndulgent Spa Services


Celebrities insist on it and so must you. It's a spa service to soothe those jangled nerves and make your skin glow. At Spa Serenity (don't you just love the name!), go for the "A Night Out Facial." At Sundara Inn & Spa, the Slimming Body Wrap and Bath Salt treatment seems like something a starlet would have before walking the red carpet. Even if you're vacationing at Wisconsin Dells water park hotels like Chula Vista, the Wilderness or Kalahari, sneak away to their on-site spa for a little pampering that's good for you.


Alpha Beta Karma - Wisconsin DellsDesigner Shopping


Fashionistas never eschew style simply because they're on vacation.  In fact, it's quite the contrary - they're on the look-out for on-trend finds they won't find closer to home.  The Wisconsin Dells shopping itinerary for any self-respecting fashionista must include stops at Artistic Expressions Gift Gallery for artisan jewelry and textiles, Affordable Leather and More for a new handbag, Alpha Beta Karma for designer fashion straight from east and west coast designers and Cranberry Connections for scarves and totes to complete the outfit.




Dells Golf CoursesChampionship Golf


It's almost unimaginable that a community of just 20 square miles could have three championship golf courses. Yet, it does. Reserve a tee time at Wild Rock Golf Club, Trappers Turn Golf Club, Cold Water Canyon Golf Course at Chula Vista Resort or all three and then golf to your heart's content.

Wild Rock Golf Club at the Wilderness

Head golf pro Pat Stein was our guide the day we tooled around Wild Rock Golf Club at the Wilderness. Ranked the #5 Best New Course of 2008 by Golf Magazine, Wild Rock is built around and through a former quarry and offers beautiful views. We slowed down at Hole 15. It's 169 yards to the green, with a drop so steep that anyone who's afraid of heights will be a tad intimidated. As Stein matter-of-factly pointed out, if you miss the green, there's probably no way to retrieve the ball. Good naturedly, Stein agreed to demonstrate the proper way to play this hole. After some gentle ribbing that he better hit a hole-in-one, he nearly did. And that's why he's the pro.

The Dells

Cold Water Canyon Golf Course

A recent $2 million renovation makes this course a must-try. General Manager Tom McClurg says, of the 18 holes, he'd point to Hole 4 as the toughest. "It's downhill about 200 yards with a 50 foot elevation drop. If you miss the green on the side of the hill, you're in the canyon and will have to play a 40-yard chip to get back," described McClurg. The original nine-hole course here was built in 1923, making it one of the oldest in the Dells and actually in the whole state. With the addition of the second nine holes, McClurg says it's like golfing two different courses in one day - a new Scottish-style links on the back nine and a traditional Wisconsin course with small greens on the front nine.


Trappers Turn Golf Club

After nearly 20 seasons with Trappers Turn Golf Club, Patrick Steffes, Director of Golf Operations, didn't hesitate a moment when asked to take us to the most challenging hole on the course. He steered us right to Hole 7 on the Canyon course. It boasts an extreme elevation drop into a small green in the midst of a glacier-formed canyon. The challenge here is not the length, but what you're potentially hitting into and that would be thick woods and a rock ledge. This course was designed by Andy North and Roger Packard, so you have them to thank for this one.

Wisconsin Dells golf courses are world class and are great attractions that any avid golfer would appreciate. With close proximity to Wisconsin Dells resorts, you can enjoy luxurious accommodations after your round of 18 holes too. So go ahead and grab your clubs, schedule your tee times and test your skills against these challenging holes in the Dells.
