GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

ERIN HILLS

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.

MAMMOTH DUNES

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.

SAND VALLEY

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.

WHISTLING STRAITS: THE STRAITS

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.

THE BATHS PAR 3 COURSE

The Baths of Blackwolf Run is a 10-hole, par-3 course that is built on 27 acres between the first and 11th holes of Blackwolf Run’s Meadow Valleys course.

The hole lengths range from 60 to 160 yards, and though the layout features four water hazards (the “baths”), none of them require forced carries to play the hole.

Though the course was designed to be played as a 10-holer, the routing allows for both shorter and longer playing experiences. In addition to the short course, guests can enjoy a two-acre putting course, log cabin food-and-beverage station and ample outdoor seating around a firepit.

THE SANDBOX

The 17-hole short course by Coore & Crenshaw

The Sandbox provides an intimate connection to the sand county landscape of central Wisconsin. Located 50 yards from the Clubhouse and in the backyard of some of the lodges, The Sandbox plays through a restored sand prairie that sits within the same V-shaped sand ridge that frames Mammoth Dunes.

With holes ranging from 40 to 140 yards, the short course features the most unique green complexes on the property, including a biarritz, double plateau, lion’s mouth, and a redan.

Designed to be tackled with just a few clubs, the holes unfold over a sandy tract dotted with native scrub and situated next to the resort’s lodge, so it’s extremely convenient to access—and inspiring to play.
