Few golf courses in the world have been created on a piece of land as special as the one which forms the basis of Blackwolf Run; a river basin, created by the flows of a glacial run-off, is now the home of Golf Digest's Best New Public Course, 1998.
The River Course is Blackwolf Run's star attraction, and is one of only 16 courses in the United States to be awarded Golf Digest's coveted fifth star. The golf course is part of the Herb Kohler stable, which also includes Whistling Straits next door, and the Duke's Course, St Andrews. The common feature pulling all of these courses together is the rugged and enchanting aesthetic that greets visiting golfers.
Kohler's passion for links golf is the basis for this stylistic penchant, and another of the manager's finest traits is his belief that the greatest courses should remain available to the golfing masses. With that in mind, Blackwolf Run and its big brother at Whistling Straits can be yours, courtesy of a once-in-a-lifetime golf tour on the shores of Lake Michigan.
