Peninsula State Park Golf Course began as a 6 Hole course in 1917, grew to 9 Holes in 1923, and finally opened as an 18 Hole course in 1931. The Course offers spectacular views of the village of Ephraim across Eagle Harbor. Of historical note and along the 9th fairway is the 40-foot Memorial Pole dedicated to the Potawatomi Nation. Members of the Nation occupied the land in Door County in the 1800's. Near the Memorial Pole is a large stone marker that is dedicated to Chief Kahquados, the last chief of the Potawatomi Nation. The bear perched at the top of the pole is depicted in the golf course logo and serves as a reminder of both the Park's and Door County's history.
