Address: 2630 Oakwood Rd, Hartland, WI 53029
Year Attended: 2016, 2017, 2018
Club Atmosphere: Kettle Moraine is my favorite club. It had the most welcoming atmosphere for a club that I have been to. When you walk in, you feel like you are in a log cabin in the woods. There is red plaid carpet that just adds to the atmosphere. The members are welcoming, and they host an amazing event. If I were to move to Wisconsin, I would try to move close by so that I could be a member of the club.
Accommodations: Holiday Inn Express & Suites Delafield – 3030 Golf Rd, Delafield, WI 53018
Travel: It is a 2-hour drive from the club that takes you just southwest of Milwaukee, WI. Nothing special about it.
Food: The club provides all meals and snacks in between. Beer is included. On Saturday night they have the banquette that is amazing. They grill beef fillets and include baked potatoes, green beans, and salad. There are also special liquor drinks during the banquette as well.
Positives: Overall, this is my favorite spiel. The competition is competitive as with many Wisconsin bonspiels but everyone there abides by proper curling etiquette and is extremely nice. The members make you feel like you are part of the club from the moment you walk in.
Negatives: The only negative I can say is it is difficult to get in. They open registration to teams that attended the previous year first. Then they open it up publicly so it can be difficult to get into.
