Wisconsin Golf Courses

Blackwold Run
Blackwolf Run, offers an award-winning 36 holes of championship golf in Kohler, Wisconsin. Its two 18-hole courses have been skillfully carved out of the natural environment and are designed for golfers who appreciate the game's great traditions. Both courses at Blackwolf Run, the River Course and the Meadow Valleys Course, were designed by renowned course architect Pete Dye and given names to reflect the natural features of the terrain. Scores of pot bunkers and water areas shored with railroad ties complement the Scottish influences in Dye's work. Vast, undulating greens further define Dye's vision for Blackwolf Run. Hybrid grasses delineate various sections of the course.

Blackwolf Run, opened for play in June 1988 and was named that year "Best New Public Course ". It has continued to accumulate awards and honors including regular ranking on the list of "America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses" by Golf Digest and the "Top 100 You Can Play" by GOLF Magazine.

Whistling Straits
Whistling Straits-host of the 2004 PGA Championship, 2007 U.S. Senior Open, 2010 PGA Championship, 2015 PGA Championship and 2020 Ryder Cup is an extraordinary combination of legendary design by Pete Dye and visionary inspiration of Herbert V. Kohler, Jr. Beginning with a 560-acre parcel of flat land, Dye sculpted a bit of Ireland and a touch of Scotland out of the Wisconsin coastline. If you ask Pete Dye, he'll tell you that building Whistling Straits was a "once in a lifetime thing"-an impressive claim for one considered the foremost golf course designer of our time.

Whistling Straits golf course, which opened in 1998, offers two courses of dynamic contrast. Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines the Straits Course sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland-and-dunes aspect of the Irish Course is a deceivingly tranquil landscape.

At the 2004 PGA Championship, Darren Clark set a new course record on the Straits Course by shooting a 7 under 65. The very next day, Miguel Angel Jimenez tied that course record by shooting a 65 of his own. Of course, no one was happier than Vijay Singh, after winning his 3rd career major by defeating Justin Leonard and Chris DiMarco in a 3-hole playoff.

With more than a hint of the Emerald Isle in its style and personality, the Irish Course at Whistling Straits possesses all the character of a centuries' old legend. Whistling Straits also appears on the coveted list of "America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses" 2004 by Golf Digest

The Irish Course
The Irish Course completes 72 holes of the most diverse golf experience in the world. The course is another Pete Dye masterpiece and a perfect companion to the adjacent, stunning Straits Course. Tranquil grasslands. Soaring dunes. Cavernous bunkers. And, to ensure that golfers will remember the Irish Course, Dye claims he has used "every trick I've ever learned" in routing and sculpting the hole dynamics. Capitalizing on the endlessly fickle personality of nearby Lake Michigan, the Irish Course offers intriguing prospects at every turn.

Carry the creek or lay up short from the tee on #9. Steer clear of the 40-foot bunkers on the right or fall victim to the wetlands on the left of the "blind" par three at #13. The Irish Course has ten bridges over four streams that meander through the property and offers panoramic views of Lake Michigan from several holes. Every hole will inspire. Every stroke will challenge.

The current course record on the Irish course is a 72, set by Charlie Brown during a Wisconsin PGA Stroke Play Event in 2002.
