Carefully hidden in the national forests of Northern Wisconsin, "We Offer a Time Treasured Golf Course" designed and built by 1920's Chicago Gangster Joe Saltis.
Joe Saltis founded Barker Lake Golf Course first and foremost on his deep passion and reference for golf. He faithfully placed and inter-weaved a strategic, Scottish style layout of rolling hills, natural elements of woods, water and sand, and elevated greens. Hole number 4 is designated to be its most signature hole. A 260-yard carry to the edge of a fairway pond and a second shot to an elevated green with water on the left. Joe Saltis was such a perfectionist he had rich top soil shipped in train cars from Tennessee.
