In 1959, Al and Marie Bromann Jr. purchased 325 acres of land in Harshaw. With the assistance of local residents and a bulldozer, the work began. In 1962 the front nine opened.
At that time, the greens were placed in depressions so that when it rained, the water would flow onto the green areas. Watering systems were not the norm back then so ideas like this helped keep the greens alive during the summer months. Al's first mower for the fairways was a Jeep towing 3 gang mowers behind it!
Ten years later, In 1972, the back nine was completed. The back nine was cut out of the hardwoods on the property. The front nine was originally a potato field. The area where the current clubhouse is was The Pinewood Tree Farm. The tall pines that are along the 2nd fairway on Lakewood Road were transplanted from that tree farm as seedings.
In 1983, Al and Judy Bromann III moved to Harshaw to take over the business. They made several improvements to the golf course including adding a driving range and watering system to the golf course.
In 1998, Al (Chip) and Jayne Bromann IV moved to Harshaw to begin the third generation of owning and operating Pinewood Country Club. Withe each year and each generation, upgrades are made to Pinewood Country Club.

A typical northern Wisconsin course. Lots of trees, rolling hills, nice scenery, peaceful and quiet since it's out in the country. Few players on the course. The course was in good shape, not perfect, but certainly playable. Will play this course again when back in the area.

This course has some spectacular views. The layout has some very challenging holes, and course knowledge will really help your round. If they have a yardage book, you should get one, or play with a regular. Course was in great shape.
