The Scenery, Beautiful... But The Food, Unforgettable

Food Recommendation Friday
Greenside Grill – Lake Arrowhead
(715) 325-2929
1195 Apache Lane
Nekoosa, WI




Who doesn’t love a relaxing dinner with a beautiful view? Lake Arrowhead is a diverse community boasting two of the Midwest’s best public, award-winning golf courses, a 300-acre lake, and amenities you and your family will adore. Spending a few hours on their gorgeous lake or golf course will work up quite the appetite. Lake Arrowhead’s Greenside Grill is the prefect place to grab breakfast, lunch or dinner. Accommodated by the charming view of the golf course, this restaurant is an exquisite place to eat. The breakfast menu is fit for any early riser. Their menu offers everything from Breakfast Burrito’s to Biscuits and Gravy. They even have the classics such as French Toast, Omelet’s and Pancakes.







The Greenside Grill has a diverse lunch and dinner menu. From homemade pizzas to BLT’s, this menu will satisfy all. Their salads are incredible. The classic Caesar Salad is simply delicious. Adding grilled salmon or chicken to your salad can really make a difference. Looking for something unique? The Cranberry Shrimp Salad is exactly what you’re looking for. This salad is topped with dried cranberries, shrimp, cucumber, tomato, red onion, and your choice of dressing. Why not enjoy a tasty sandwich? The Reuben is impressive but the Fried Cod Sandwich is out of this world. This sandwich is made with two pieces of fried or beer battered cod topped with cheddar cheese and lettuce put together on a Kaiser served with a side of tartar sauce. This sandwich is exceptional. The Greenside Grill also has incredible wraps. The Buffalo Chicken Wrap happens to be my favorite, but I would also suggest trying their Cajun Chicken Wrap. Like to think out of the box? The Chilled Shrimp Wrap is exactly what you’re looking for. This wrap is made with chilled shrimp, cocktail sauce and coleslaw in a garlic and herb tortilla wrap. For dinner, try one of their entrees. The Beef Pot Roast is an excellent entrée choice, but the Chicken Carbonara is even better. Smoked bacon and chicken tossed with fettuccine pasta in creamy carbonara sauce, this entrée is simply delicious. Dinner is available after 4pm and is served with soup or salad and dinner rolls. Who doesn’t love a mouth-watering dinner with a gorgeous view? Stop into the Greenside Grill for a diverse menu, an enjoyable meal and a dazzling view.

To Golf Or Not To Golf? What A Silly Question...

Summer Hummer 2016



Here's your chance to spend the day on the golf course, network, and enjoy the beautiful day outside. Grab your clubs and join us for the 33rd Annual Summer Hummer Big Cup Golf Outing. The opportunity is here to network in a laid back environment. Get to know the businesses within the Heart of Wisconsin area while having fun on the golf course.




Afraid to stop by because your golf skills need improvement? No worries! This golf outing is a scramble format, often used at large-scale golf events. A prime advantage of a scramble is it allows players of all abilities to contribute to the team’s success and helps speed play. Golfers who are new to the format can quickly learn the rules and terminology. The most common scramble format is four players, but it can be used with fewer or more players. The Summer Hummer Big Cup Golf requires groups of four. If you’re a single player you’ll be paired with a group.




Community businesses around the Heart of Wisconsin area sponsor each hole. Sponsors have the opportunity to create a “mini golf game”. Golfers go from hole to hole playing various games event sponsors have created. Every year sponsors creatively make new challenges for the golfers. For example, a past sponsor created there own game called Beat the Staff Member. When the golfers arrive at the hole, the staff would challenge them to a distance-driving tournament. Whoever hits the ball closest to the hole wins. When staff members where beat, golfers would receive free raffle tickets. Every year sponsors create different engaging “mini golf games”, making for one interesting day. If you’re lucky enough, you can sink a hole-in-one and win $5,000 cash.




Quickly, grab your golf clubs and prepare yourself for an interesting day of golf. Gain insight about the businesses within the Heart of Wisconsin area on and off the golf course. The 33rd Annual Summer Hummer Big Cup Golf Outing is waiting for you.
