YOUR 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.

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.

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.

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,

YOUR LODGING

ERIN HILLS LODGE

The Lodge at Erin Hills is just off the 18th green and certainly resembles an Irish country inn, which was the intent, after all.

The Lodge features a variety of room options complete with antique furnishings, Egyptian linens, and private bathrooms.  There are also private four bedroom cottages overlooking the golf course on property. Each cottage offers spacious beds, private bathrooms, and a central great room complete with flat screen television, gas fireplace, wet bar, and comfortable seating.

The Lodge is a short walk down a few sets of stairs from the Clubhouse, and is situated between the practice facility and the first tee. The Irish Pub on the first floor has one main bar room, which extends into a back lounge with televisions and poker tables.

The pub leads outdoors to a porch with rocking chairs where you can smoke your cigar and tell tall tales about your shots of the day. You can also enjoy the sunset on the outside patio, which has tables and three fire pits overlooking the first hole.
