This course was the site of the Greater Milwaukee Open, the US Bank Championship, and was the site of Tiger Woods’ first PGA Tour event. With much pageantry, Brown Deer is the Cadillac of Milwaukee’s county courses.Fee will include Transportation from Milwaukee Marriott West to course, Pre-round practice range access, 18-hole round with cart, boxed lunch and beverage package.
