Outdoor

If you’re looking for outdoor sports and recreation and you don’t mind breaking a sweat, dive into Beloit’s relaxing and adventurous options!

Grab your clubs and head for the picturesque Krueger-Haskell Golf Course. It offers an 18-hole, par 70, 6158-yard course and has been a golfers’ favorite for more than ninety years. If you need some work before showing off your skills, practice away at their chipping and putting practice sessions. You can also warm up at one of the five hitting cages. Recharge at the restaurant and bar, Putterz Pub, inside the Krueger-Haskell clubhouse. End your day by checking out the golf balls, logo shirts, golf gloves, and tees at their gift shop.

Show your love for baseball at a Beloit Snappers game. The Snappers are Beloit’s very own Class A minor league baseball team, affiliated with the Oakland Athletics. They play 70 home games at Pohlman Field and ticket prices start as low as $6.50. The Snappers are also known for their outstanding fireworks display nights throughout the season. Gather friends and family for an evening of major league excitement at minor league prices!

Craving an adrenaline rush? Soar through the skies with Sylvania Soaring Adventures! This glider and soaring facility is located at the Beloit Airport. You can enjoy the spectacular views of the Chicago and Milwaukee skylines on a clear day for an even more memorable experience. Sit under beautiful oak trees and watch gliders and airplanes take off into the sky. Skydive the Rock, also located at the Beloit Airport, promises a skydiving adventure of a lifetime.
