Earlier this summer, we were honored to be hosted for a round of golf at Blue Mound Golf and Country Club in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. It was a hot day spent on the links and the cold bloody on the patio afterwards was oh-so-refreshing.

Spice & Mix: Perfect amount of spice, mix unknown.

Fixin’s: Beef Stick, Lemon, Lime and Olive

Chaser: None offered.

Price: $Unknown

Blue Mound is a private club, so it will be hard to get another one of these, but if I have the chance again, I will jump at it! And, if you ever find yourself as lucky as I was to be on this course, be sure to stop at the 19th hole for one of these!

On a recent trip “Up North” in Wisconsin, we stopped at SentryWorld Golf Course in Steven’s Point. It was late November and there was a light dusting of snow on the ground so we didn’t get to see the course’s signature landscaping, but we did get to check out their gem of a restaurant/bar called PJ’s SentryWorld Restaurant.

Spice & Mix: Your choice of Bakon vodka, Chippewa River dill or garlic vodka, or Absolut Peppar vodka with housemade mix

Fixin’s: Fresh cheese curds, bacon, pickle, olive, house-pickled mushroom, Brussels sprout

Chaser: Your choice! We chose PJ’s private label.

Price: $9… but we got $1 off because it was happy hour

We had also dined at the restaurant and we loved the vibe. It was a cozy, open, airy place with bright artwork and impeccable craftsmanship.

We ordered a burger and it was delicious. For a restaurant on a golf course, the prices were more than reasonable and the service was fantastic. Next time we visit, we hope to get out on the course and play, but we were super satisfied with our visit.

 

 

The world’s most elite golfers have made their way to Kohler, Wisconsin for the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

We were fortunate enough to attend a practice round this week where we watched this talented field while basking in the sun…with a bloody mary in hand.

When you attend events like these, you can expect to shell out some cash for food and beverages while captive on the course. Thus, $11 for a standard bloody mary was no shock to me.

MIX: Unsure, but the bartender in the Wanamaker Club made it spicy to my specification

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Lime and two olives

PRICE: $11

We enjoyed being able to sip on a bloody mary while out on the links. The last bloody mary we had at a golf tournament was at the Ryder Cup in 2012. This one was certainly “on par” with the “Best Bloody Mary at Medinah.”
