Alice Cooper golfed Tripoli Country Club before Appleton concert

It's about that time when school's out for summer, and for Alice Cooper that meant golfing in Milwaukee.

Before heading north for his Wednesday night show at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in downtown Appleton, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer played the course at Tripoli Country Club, 7401 N. 43rd St.

At 69, Cooper has said he tries to get a round of golf in every morning, part of his still-extremely busy schedule, which includes about 100 live performances a year, a five-days-a-week radio show and the release later this summer of his 27th studio album, "Paranormal."

He played with NiteLite Promotions President Don Kronberg, Monster Truck Destruction Tour Director of Event Booking Chris Kroening and Cooper guitarist Ryan Roxie, according to Kroening.

Cooper has professed his love of golf often, including to OnMilwaukee in 2015, when he said "it's a game; it's not a lifestyle" and offered tips for staying stylish on the course.

The iconic father of shock rock – and frontman of the Hollywood Vampires, who played at Summerfest last year – is, of course, known first and foremost as a musician. But his infamous line in "Wayne's World" – explaining that Milwaukee actually is pronounced "'mill-e-wah-que,' which is Algonquin for 'The Good Land'" – was charmingly reprised for the 2016 Milwaukee Film Festival commercial, so he's pretty familiar around here.

Other social media posts suggested Cooper might have stayed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center in Downtown before going up to Appleton.

We hope he enjoyed his time clubbing in the Good Land. And don't forget to download your Alice Cooper LocaMoji sticker here, Milwaukee! Or should we say ...
