KOHLER: Best Championship Course
Updated: Mar 20, 2019
The Straits and The Irish Arguably the greatest championship course in the United States, the Straits at Whistling Straits® has hosted the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championships and the 2007 U.S. Senior Open, and it is the future site of the 2020 Ryder Cup.
Whistling Straits offers two courses of dynamic contrast and world-class prestige. Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines the Straits, sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Borrowing influences from Irish links courses, the Straits has fescue fairways and massive sand dune bunkers. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland and dunes aspect of the Irish is a deceiving tranquil landscape.
Experience these two must-play courses crafted by hall-of-fame designer Pete Dye and ranked among the best in the United States.
