Pleasant View Golf Course’s clubhouse is now open every Sunday as a warming house for skiers and snowshoers.

According to the Middleton Tourism Department, the public can cruise into the clubhouse every Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., stash their equipment on conveniently located storage racks, refuel with pizza and snacks, warm up with hot chocolate and coffee or relax with a cold beer.  In addition to food, the clubhouse offers panoramic views of Lake Mendota, Middleton and Madison. Opening weekend alone, more than 100 people stopped off to rest, defrost and fill up.

Pleasant View Golf Course, owned and operated by the City of Middleton, includes cross-country ski trail loops ranging from 0.5 to 2.3 miles long. 

“Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing is hard work. You’re burning a ton of calories, so having a place to take a break, warm up and grab something to eat really improves the experience,” said Jeremy Cabalka, Head Golf Professional at Pleasant View Golf Course.  “Now you can turn an outing that might have been a couple of hours long into an afternoon or all-day trip.”

Trails are open, weather-permitting, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week and there is no fee for users. Trails conditions are often updated on the Pleasant View Golf Course Facebook page, If the trails are closed, the warming house will also be closed.

Pleasant View Golf Course is located at 1322 Pleasant View Road in Middleton. For more information, visit
