Reasons to Visit Erin Hills
Host of 2017 US Open, won by Brooks Koepka
Ranked in The Top 10 Public Golf Courses in the United States
Located 2 hours from downtown Chicago and 1 hour 20 minutes from Whistling Straits
While Whistling Straits is certainly the marquee name when it comes to golf in Wisconsin, Erin Hills has quickly developed a strong reputation as a top class golf course since its opening in 2006. Golfers embarking on USA golf holidays will love this naturally formed golf course that, like Whistling Straits, bears a striking resemblance to the classic links courses found in the UK and Ireland.
2017 was the biggest year in Erin Hills history with the course hosting The US Open for the 1st time. This was the 1st time that a Major had been held in Wisconsin and saw the world’s best players do battle over 4 days to claim one of golf’s 4 Major Championships. Brooks Koepka landed the title with 16 under par total which was enough for a 4-shot victory over Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama and America’s Brian Harman.
