Erin Hills GC- hole 4Erin Hills GC- hole 4 

 Located in Wisconsin, Erin Hills Golf Club was designed by Hurzdan & Fry, collaborating with Ron Whitten

The course opened for play in 2006

It was built on a grand scale, with the intent of holding events- and has already hosted the U.S Amateur (2011), and The U.S. Open in 2017 (won by Brooks Koepka).

The club is scheduled to host the 2025 Women's Open, and likely the 2033 Men's U.S. Open.


The club is well set up to look after both members and guests, with magnificent golfing facilities complemented by quality accommodation, dining and practice facilities.

Playing the course is quite an experience.

It is a wonderfully manicured course and has multiple tees on each hole- catering for champions off the rear tees and less gifted players off the more forward tees.

There is a significant movement throughout the property and the course uses it to create some really interesting and testing holes.

The green are firm and fast and given the amount of movement on the greens can test even the best.

If you don’t bring your A game it will be a long day at the office!


It is also a long walk.

There is significant distance between greens and tees- often through undulating terrain.

You need to be reasonably fit to walk Erin Hills!

I used a caddie who carried my bag and advised on lines of play.

Thank you Brandon- you certainly made my round!


Notable holes include:

  • Hole 1, a challenging par 5 that plots it’s way around the marshland
  • Hole 2, a semi blind  short par 4 with a raised green

Erin Hills is a championship course.

The course traverses a grand landscape.

There are quite long walks from green to tee which is perhaps not ideal for club golf, but is perfect for staging for a big event.

The accommodation and facilities are first class.

Give yourself a treat- play where the big boys play!
