SentryWorld Makes Top List in Golf Digest
Reimagined course #2 in GOLF’s Most Anticipated New Courses of 2015 and #5 in Golf Digest’s Wisconsin: Best in State rankings
For the City Times
After a limited reopening late in the 2014 season following a nearly two-year renovation, SentryWorld is poised and ready to reclaim its place as Wisconsin’s premier parkland golf course. And two of the nation’s leading golf publications have taken note.
Earlier this week on www.golf.com, GOLF Magazine released its Most Anticipated New Courses of 2015; SentryWorld claimed the number two position in the list of nine elite courses worldwide. Although not technically a new course, SentryWorld’s complete renovation led by original course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. made enough of an impression to be included in the esteemed list, ranking above courses from around the globe, including Australia, France, the Bahamas and Brazil. The complete story is available at www.golf.com/photos/most-anticipated-new-courses-2015.
Golf Digest also recently released its Wisconsin: Best in State rankings for 2015-2016 on www.golfdigest.com. SentryWorld jumped five spots, moving from number 10 in the 2013-2014 rankings up to the number five position. The complete Wisconsin: Best in State rankings can be seen at www.golfdigest.com/golf-courses/wisconsin.
“We are extremely proud of what we’ve created here at SentryWorld and are honored to have received these accolades from GOLF and Golf Digest,” said SentryWorld General Manager Mike James. “We are looking forward to opening for the full season in 2015 and letting all of the golfers who have waited patiently throughout our renovation experience first-hand what we truly believe is one of the finest parkland golf courses not only in the region, but in the world. SentryWorld is a place of openness and community, so whether you’re a central Wisconsin resident or a destination golfer, we invite everyone to visit us for a round in 2015.”
SentryWorld, originally opened in 1982, has long been touted for its world-class caliber and signature “Flower Hole” and is widely recognized as Wisconsin’s first destination golf course. The SentryWorld complex comes complete with pro shop, fieldhouse, wedding, banquet and event space and its own restaurant, PJ’s – SentryWorld.
