SentryWorld is a tribute to our roots in the community of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, and the pride we all feel for the area. When past Sentry Insurance CEO John Joanis developed plans to construct SentryWorld in the early 1980s, he wanted it first and foremost to be a celebration of the city, the state, the region, and the people who made it possible. Course designer Robert Trent Jones, Jr. made that dream a reality. Current Sentry Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO Pete McPartland renewed SentryWorld’s dedication to Stevens Point in 2013 by spearheading the facility’s major renovation, updating and improving the venue and once again providing visitors with an authentic central Wisconsin experience.
A small city on the shores of the Wisconsin River, Stevens Point has gained a reputation as an outdoor destination, a cultural and artistic hotspot, and a thriving, welcoming community. Its geography is distinctive, as rivers converge and northern forests meet southern fields. Its location—the meeting point of Interstate 39 and US 10, comfortably within four hours of Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Madison—makes it among the most accessible cities in Wisconsin. Home to approximately 27,000 people, the city brings together an array of contemporary amenities while preserving its pastoral small town appeal. Ultimately, Stevens Point is a perfect representation of central Wisconsin as a whole: a community that makes visitors feel at home.
“Sentry Insurance is an integral part of Stevens Point, as it has been for over a century. Many of Sentry's leaders have been woven into the fabric of our community over generations. Today, Sentry remains a vested partner, and helps maintain a quality of life we're all proud of.” —Mike Wiza, Mayor of Stevens Point
