Grant is the oldest of the Milwaukee County Parks system courses and is located on the lakefront bluffs in the city of South Milwaukee, overlooking Lake Michigan. Grant's quaint little layout is known for its mature trees, short positional par 4's and large difficult greens. This is a great course to play on hot sunny days because of the occasional lake breezes which cool everything down. Being a public course in an urban area means that Grant GC is usually pretty busy with golfers of all skill levels so, allow yourself some time when playing this course.

The clubhouse is an older building that includes a pub and grill along with locker rooms on the lower level for the numerous leagues there. There is no real pro-shop to speak of although you can buy basic supplies there. Motorized and hand carts are available and inexpensive for county GC card holders. The greens and fairways on this course are usually kept in good shape although the amount of play they get can sometimes leave them a little rugged.

This is a short course. The longest hole is only about 400 yards but the large contoured putting greens more than make up for the short yardages. Contoured and often multileveled, these greens will test your putting skills. Being below the hole is advised on the larger ones. The shorter par 4’s on this course are usually more about position. The distances on these holes can often tempt you to cut corners with your driver or fairway woods, but be advised that the mature tree stands and deep roughs will make you pay for ill executed shots.

If you are looking for an enjoyable round of golf that is not too difficult, Grant GC is a good value.
