Great Golf Getaways – Erin Hills

Erin Hills Golf Course (host of last year’s U.S. Open) is a beautiful, but extremely challenging, course that is a gem deserving of the buzz its receiving in the golf world. Situated 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee, the 7,812-yard, par-72 track lies in the small town of Erin, Wisconsin.  The course’s dramatic landscape takes advantage of the natural slops of the land, which makes for exciting but tricky lies and stances.  It boasts a course rating of 77.9 and a slope of 145. During the 117th U.S. Open, the course played 7,693 yards.  The course was easily among the most challenging courses I have ever played.
