The Lido – C.B. Macdonald’s Long Lost Gem – Will Be Restored in the Sand Dunes of Central Wisconsin at Sand Valley Resort


The Lido Golf Club – designed by C.B. Macdonald – was formed on the shores of Long Island in 1914. It was touted by many historians as one of the greatest golf courses ever created. Sadly, the course was demolished by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Ever since it disappeared, the promise of The Lido has intrigued many as one of the great lost wonders of the golf world. We are excited to announce that The Lido will soon be brought back to life by the Keiser brothers and renowned architect, Tom Doak.

Michael and Chris Keiser are building a small club whose mission is to restore and preserve the great masterpiece of C.B. Macdonald. With the help of the club members, the Keiser brothers will build The Lido on pure sand dunes adjacent to Sand Valley and bring a lost treasure back to life.
