In the early 2000's Craig Haltom began scouring the state of Wisconsin with his wife, looking for an ideal piece of land to build a golf course. Haltom, a construction executive with Oliphant Golf Construction, came across the land on which Sand Valley now sits and knew he had found what he was looking for. In 2012 Haltom connected with Mike Keiser via golf course architect, Greg Ramsey. One site visit led to another, and another, until Mike Keiser decided, with his sons Michael and Chris, to purchase 1700 acres of land in 2013.
Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw were hired to design the first course, Sand Valley, and began designing a routing through the tumbling sand dunes in 2014. Sand Valley opened in May 2017 and was honored by Golf Magazine as "Best New Course You Can Play - 2017."
Mammoth Dunes, designed by David Kidd (designer of Bandon Dunes) opened May 31, 2018 and is open for play. Routed around a mile long V-shaped sand ridge Mammoth Dunes is a dramatic, fun golf course, routed through the prehistoric sand dunes of central Wisconsin.
The Sandbox, a 17-hole Par-3 course designed by the team of Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw, opened May 1, 2018 and is a fantastic, fun course for golfers of all ages and skill sets.
Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf (Pacific Dunes, Tara Iti) has been selected to design the resort’s 4th course - a 6,200 yard Par-68 inspired by the likes of Swinley Forest and St. Enodoc overseas.
We look forward to adding truly unique golf and outdoor recreational experiences that make Sand Valley the perfect place for your adventure.
