Grand Geneva - Brute - Lake Geneva, WI

Grand Geneva originally opened in 1968 as the Geneva Club Playboy Hotel.  This was the first Playboy Club in the US and brought a touch of glamour to the Midwest lakeside community.  With an airstrip installed for commuter planes landing from nearby Chicago, the hotel was able to book some of the era's most famous acts such as  Bob Hope, and Sonny & Cher.

Today you wont find any Playboy bunnies walking around, but you will still find 2 championship golf courses, the Brute and The Highlands.  The Brute course is aptly named and provides plenty of chances for the golfer to get beat up.  I would play twice and only suffer a few minor scrapes and bruises.
