Host to the 2011 US Amateur & the 2017 US Open

Opened in 2006 and having already hosted a US Amateur and the US Open, Erin Hills has evolved quickly into a must-play championship venue.

On a rugged landscape formed by glacial action thousands of years ago, little earth was moved when forming the course, resulting in one of the most natural layouts to be found anywhere in the US.

Erin Hills enjoys exceptional terrain for inland links golf, with rolling dune-like hills, golden fescue, and uninhibited views across the course highlighted by a few select trees. The course tends to play hard and fast, reminding you of playing in Scotland or Ireland.

The setting at Erin Hills has a special feeling that is difficult to convey in words; you simply have to experience it for yourself.


18 holes, 72 par, 7,404/6,865 yards

Designed by Pete Dye, both courses at Blackwolf Run are top notch golf courses but the River course is undoubtedly the flagship layout. There a number of refreshing aspects to playing at Blackwolf Run (apart from the clean, fresh air, of course) - a player may walk while carrying their bag, there are no houses or condominiums adjacent to the property, there is a choice of four tee boxes per hole and the course is kept in immaculate condition – none of which can be said for most resort courses.

Severe elevation changes are a feature as all eighteen holes wind their way round and about natural and man-made water hazards. Precise course management must be used at Blackwolf Run, as a poor decision will cost many shots to par. You could be in another world a long way from Wisconsin on the three holes around the turn on the River course – possibly the finest three at Blackwolf Run.


18 holes, 72 par, 7,790/7,142/6,663 yards

If you didn’t know the history behind Whistling Straits, you’d believe that the 560-acres of land had been shaped by the hands of time. But you’d be wrong. Whistling Straits was the vision of Herbert V. Kohler, Jnr. who transformed a former airfield into one of the most dramatic courses on the planet.

In 1998, the course opened for play and even Pete Dye thinks that building Whistling Straits was a “once in a lifetime thing”. It took a few million dollars and a Herculean effort to build the incredible Straits course, which is sculpted for two miles alongside the Lake Michigan shoreline.

With an interesting figure of eight routing for both outward and inward nines, the layout is extremely well-balanced and utilizes the topography to its' full effect. Whistling Straits is an architectural engineering work of art and it’s and absolute must-play course.


Golf Magazine Best New Course 2018

David McLay Kidd, who designed Bandon Dunes twenty years earlier, began building a second 18 at the resort just before Coore and Crenshaw had completed their 18, Sand Valley. He gave his meandering layout enormous fairways, big accessible greens and visually-unique hillsides of exposed sand, “mammoth dunes” that became the course moniker.

The dune ridge which forms the dominant feature of the course is close to 100 feet high, making the course visually off the charts.

At Mammoth Dunes, Kidd will take you on a journey around a majestic landscape, and along the way his design skews toward helping, which increases thrill and enjoyment.


Golf Magazine Best New Course 2017

Sand Valley is the fifth course that the firm of Coore and Crenshaw has designed for resort maven Mike Keiser, and the first not located close to an ocean. No matter. It’s still on a thousand acres of rolling sand hills in Central Wisconsin, and Coore and Crenshaw were given carte blanche to route their course.

Given the name, many conclude Sand Valley is a combination of Nebraska’s Sand Hills Golf Club and New Jersey’s Pine Valley. But Sand Valley has its own personality, with some dual fairways, gigantic sand spits, enormous greens and even a hidden putting surface. Sand Valley was Golf Digest’s Best New Course of 2017.
