Welcome to Erin Hills A course 10,000 years in the making.
Long before championship golf was played at Erin Hills, glaciers carved unique features into the landscape, turning Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine into the diverse region it is today. Architects adopted a minimalist approach in their design, as nature had sculpted the land in a way that the holes seemed to emerge from the property. To experience Erin Hills, for business or pleasure, plan your visit now.
Erin Hills is a course like none other — routed over the kettle moraine areas left by glaciers, surrounded by wetlands and a river, with ground that consists of glacial till of varied composition of sand and small rock. In an unconventional decision for a course in Wisconsin, the architects used fine fescue for the fairways to emphasize the natural contours of the property and provide a firm playing surface that plays shorter than its length on the scorecard.
The course was designed to accommodate the 2017 U.S. Open, in terms of both the challenge to the players and the logistics of the spectators. This mix of traditional and modern elements as well as a championship test will leave many golfers with the feeling that they’ve never played anywhere like Erin Hills.
