Sand Valley is the latest golf venture to be developed by the Keiser Family. Much like the other Keiser & Dream Golf properties Bandon Dunes and Cabot Links, Sand Valley is a high-profile, one-of-a-kind project that has already established itself as one of the greatest golf destinations in America.
Located in central Wisconsin, one and a half hours north of Madison in the town of Rome, Sand Valley is situated among 80,000 acres of prehistoric lake bottom in the Sand Barrens region of the state. When complete, the entire development will cover 1,480 acres of previously wooded timber land owned by the Plum Creek Land Company. 2017 was the grand opening year for Sand Valley, and 2018 the official opening of the second golf course, Mammoth Dunes by David Kidd, and the Sandbox, a 17-hole short course by Coore & Crenshaw. In addition to the afore mentioned golf courses, the Resort includes 96 keys of unique lodging that can accommodate approximately 200 overnight guests on site, full Clubhouse operations, several food and beverage outlets (including Aldo’s Farm to Table, Mammoth Bar, Craig’s Porch, Sandbox Food Truck, and several on course outlets), hiking trails, fat-tire biking, grass court tennis and much more.
The team at Sand Valley is well established and growing, with future development to include The Lido, a private 18-hole course scheduled to open to limited preview play in 2022 and a “Grand Opening” in 2023, along with accompanying accommodations developed to support the new Club. Additional projects include a mixed-use Tennis Center, Wellness Facilities, and additional accommodations, both overnight, short-term, and longer-term rentals. The resort kicked off its inaugural Winter Season in 2020/2021 and has plans to continue to develop and mature into a true four-season resort, featuring ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, etc.
