Up North in Cable

Overview

Quote:
This is a great area for outdoor activities. There is something for every season: mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, fishing, golfing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snow-tubing. The resort also hosts the American Birkebeiner Cross-Country Ski Race in February, and the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival Off-Road Bicycle Event in September. The hiking is great at Copper Falls State Park or in the Chequamegon National Forest. There are also many quality golf courses in the Hayward/Cable area, including a nice one next to the resort. Take a short drive into Hayward for a nice selection of shopping and restaurants. Don't miss the antique shops, baker...Read More

Coop's Pizza Parloure

Restaurant

Coop's recently moved from their old building into a new log cabin restaurant. This has a beautiful rustic decor with a large aquarium along one entire wall of the main dining room. The aquarium has a nice selection of fresh water specimens which would be the envy to many a fisherman. The restaurant has three different dining areas. One is a separate area for private gatherings. This restaurant has a comfortable, casual dining environment. We stopped for lunch and elected to enjoy their lunch buffet. This included two types of soup, a nice salad bar, two selections of pizzas, and garlic bread. All were excellent, especially the soup. The buffet is very reasonably priced at $4.99. ...Read More

Cooper's Restaurant is located in a newer rustic building. The rustic decor is enhanced by the unique tables and chairs. I haven't seen anything similar to them and they are worth a visit just to see. There are two separate dining areas. We stopped for lunch and I selected one of their specials, the meat loaf. I was rewarded with a full meal which included soup, vegetables, two scoops of potatoes with gravy, and two generous pieces of meat loaf. This was a very generous portion for the price. Most of their daily specials are between $4-$5. This was a very pleasant dining experience. The atmosphere was pleasant, the waitress was pleasant and the service was quick. The food was a...Read More

Hayward Golf & Tennis Club

Attraction | "Hayward Golf and Tennis Club"

Quote:
Golf Digest rated this course as four stars. It is one of the nicest courses in northern Wisconsin. The course is 6685 yards, par 72. It was originally built in 1924, but was nicely redesigned in 1998. Even though we played it in October, it was well maintained, nicely manicured, and falling leaves were not a problem. The course slope is 125, and has four tee boxes. It has 10 doglegs, 52 sand and/or bunkers, and four well-placed water hazards. The layout is challenging to the expert golfer while still being playable for those of us with lesser skills. Playing this course was pleasurable. If you play this course during the busy summer season or weekends, reserving a tee time is recommen...Read More

The golf course is located approximately 15 miles east of Hayward. This course is 3300 yards, par 36. There are three small water hazards, but two are close to the tee boxes and don't present much of a hazard. There are three tee boxes. We played the course in October and it was well manicured and maintained. The course has only pine trees, so leaves were not a problem. With the exception of the first and last holes, it is a wide open course and there should not be a problem with losing balls. The final hole is a challenging par-five with a narrow fairway. Playing this course was pleasurable and it would be a great course for a family outing. If you are an expert golfer, this course woul...Read More

Copper Falls State Park

Attraction

Quote:
Copper Falls is a short drive from Telemark and is one of Wisconsin's most scenic state parks. The park is 2676 acres, has 7 miles of hiking trails, 8 miles of mountain bike trails, and 14 miles of cross-country ski trails. We enjoyed the hiking and departed the main set of buildings, which are rustic log-cabin structures. These buildings are only open during the peak season and include concessions. The hiking trails crisscross two rivers which merge in the park. When we crossed the first bridge, we saw one deer close to the river. It seemed so tame, but we were not a threat to it, being on the bridge. Just a short distance away, we saw two more deer along the hiking trail. We moved slo...Read More

Telemark Golf Course is next to Telemark Resort, but under different ownership, so it is very convenient. The course is 6407 yards, par 72. It has a slope of 124, 22 sand bunkers, nine dog legs, and water comes into play on six holes. The course was in beautiful shape considering it was October. The course features the northern forest, rolling hills, peaceful ponds, and streams. It has three tee boxes. The course is cut into the woods with few fareways adjacent to each other. Accuracy is a necessity and the course is a challenge. Putting is also challenging because of the breaks on the greens. Both and front and back nines are equally difficult. The signature hole is number 1...Read More
