Spend a day or two GOLFING one of our many fine courses. Hayward (Golf Capital of Wisconsin) has 10 golf courses within an 25-mile drive. These golf courses feature rolling hills, majestic northern pines, and the finest greens interwoven with sand bunkers and water hazards. Golf amongst the scenic environment, relaxing atmosphere and charm of the Northwoods.
We also pride our home for its approximately 300,000 acres of forest. The Chequamegon National Forest alone is 124,000 acres. It’s apparent why so many title Sawyer County to be the ultimate Northwoods experience. We have over 200 miles of bike trails and are home to the largest off-road bike race in North America, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, mountain biking, HORESEBACK RIDING, HIKING trails, ATVING. If its FISHING you’re into, Sawyer County is the place! We have over 55,000 acres of lakes, and we are home to the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. This is where world record catches are registered; there are no fishing stories here. It’s easy to find—just look for the four-story musky, where you can look over Hayward from the big fish’s mouth.
. . . the opportunities are unlimited.
Welcome to the northwoods!
