Whistling Straits
Whistling Straits®

Two courses designed by Pete Dye.

 

The Straits Course.  Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines Straits.  Sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, one of the great championship courses in the United States.  Fescue fairways and over a thousand sand dune bunkers with elevation changes from 10 to 70 feet above the great lake.

 

The Irish Course.  Just inland.  Interspersed with four meandering streams.  Fescues of greens and golden browns.  Is a course with real bite.

Blackwolf Run
Blackwolf Run

Two courses designed by Pete Dye.

 

Over two centuries ago, Chief Blackwolf and his Winnebago tribe camped in the Sheboygan River Valley, the best hunting and fishing territory between Chicago and Green Bay.  It was a land and river basin sculpted by glacial runoff.  It was also a temporary home to the Chippewas, who tried to do battle with Blackwolf.  Wild game was so plentiful that Indians from the Mississippi would hike to this area and carry skins and dried fish all the way back home.   

 

When it opened, the River Course created a three-month lead time for a tee-time. Golf Digest named it the best new public course of 1988. It caused Herb Kohler and Pete Dye to build a second course called Meadow Valleys which surprisingly didn’t change the lead time one bit.
