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.

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.

WHISTLING STRAITS: THE IRISH

18 holes, 72 par, 7,201/6,750 yards

The Straits course gets most of the hype between these two co-located courses due to its major championship pedigree, but The Irish is a treat to play. The second Pete Dye layout at Whistling Straits sits just inland from the Straits, but boasts many of the same incredible features and challenges while still maintaining a personality all its own.

There are many holes that force strategy and some thought off the tee in terms of how aggressive you want to be. Hole 2 is a great example. You can try to be more aggressive off the tee, but you've got water down the left and a bunker on the right that comes into play if hit driver. How much are you willing to risk?

The greens are tricky, but extremely smooth rolling. Bunkers are used strategically in the all the best ways... to challenge you, to deceive you, and to punish you. The bunkers on this course are a little rockier than others in the area... really more waste areas than bunkers. Not many will allow your typical explosion shot. Overall, this course is a treat to play. The facilities are exceptional (as you'd expect) and the staff is very friendly,

BLACKWOLF RUN: THE RIVER

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.

BLACKWOLF RUN: MEADOW VALLEYS

18 holes, 72 par, 7,250/6,830 yards

If there are two or more courses on a property, one is guaranteed to be overlooked. Such is the fate of the Meadow Valleys course at Blackwolf Run. Though it’s not a major championship venue, it is a deserving Top 100 course in its own right, and it would be foolish to make a trip to Kohler without playing it.

Despite being on the same property as The River, The Meadow Valleys has a look that’s distinct from its Blackwolf Run sister. The Meadow Valleys is more open, offering many long views that allow you to see multiple holes. There are still plenty of elevation changes, but they tend to be more compact – an elevated green rather than an entire hole that plays uphill. The most obvious difference between the two courses is the lack of water at The Meadow Valleys – it’s only a substantial hazard on six holes.
