weekendhack   Shoots in the 90s [Feb 18, 2003]

Played the treeless Irish in August. I would not recommend playing out of season due to the winds by the lake. Bring plenty of balls, because without a forecaddie you will lose balls in the fescue that you think you have a bead on. A great course in near perfect condition but if you are going to play either the Straits course or Irish spend the extra dough and go with the Straits. Better views right on the water and possibly the best public course in the world. I'd put the Irish #3 in priority behind the Straits and the nearby River Course at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, WI. The Sheboygan, WI area is probably the #2 golf resort area in the country behind Pebble Beach.

Customer Service

Flawless. They are there to pamper you.

Drew Thompson   Shoots in the 80s [Jun 13, 2002]

I had the privledge of playing the Straits and Irish Course at Whistling Straits was amazed! The scenery is above any other course I have played, and the service was outstanding. This course blows Pebble Beach out of the water. Until playing Whistling Straits I was unaware that there was a nicer course than Pebble Beach.

Customer Service

I thought the service at Whistling Straits was far over necessary. The majority of the wonderful atmosphere is provided because of the excellent service. is provided because

Joey Iazzetto   Shoot in the 90s [Aug 17, 2001]

The River Course is definately one of the most beautiful and enjoyable courses in the country, and the Meadow is not far behind. The Irish and Whistling straits are overpriced, but both offer some great views of the Lake from several holes. These courses are definately not meant for anyone who can't play bogey golf or better. The service was spectacular five years ago, but has gone down every year. Expect prices to continue to rise with the upcoming PGA tournament. Spring for the $10 yardage book, you won't regret it.

Taylor Groth   Shoot in the 80s [Jul 29, 2001]

I play for a private high school that is located in my area, and our coach was lucky enough to set us up in a meet against another private school who's home course in BlackWolf Run. We were able to play the Meadow Valley Course, which was in great condition. I was a Freshman at the time and shot 41, so course isn't extremely hard, but fun, alot of times you must place a tee shot in a certain area to have a shot at the green. Course is located half in a valley and half wooded, Very beautiful and breath taking coming into the clubhouse area, amazing.

Customer Service

Workers were amazingly nice, and wore black knickers. Pretty funny and neat.

Similar Products Used: Decent Driving range with balls sitting out there, but were forced to hit of artificial grass.

This review is for the Straits and Irish courses:

Irish Course - Tees and greens are in great shape, course just opend two weeks ago. Greens are undulating and run about a 9-10 (fast) on the stimp. The fairways are in great shape (no carts on fairways) but do not expect many even lies. Keep the ball in the short stuff, we all lost one ball just off the fairway. The rough is no bargain and can be long and very thick even around the greens.

Straits - Tees and greens are in good shape, greens run about same speed as the Irish course. The fairways are a fescue and are longer than what we normally see (but you get very good lies). Off the fairway is not groomed so expect some bad lies, you will be challenged.

Customer Service

Tee times for 2 or more start calling at right at the two week mark unless you stay at the American club.

Blackwolf Run is a 36-hole golf complex, divided into the River Course and the Meadow Valleys Course. What can I say about these courses that hasn't already been said. These courses have ranked among the top 25 nationally since completion. The relationship between Herb Kohler and Pete Dye has produced some of the best golf holes in the world! Visiting Kohler, WI (just on the western edge of Sheboygan, WI)and playing on these courses is a total golf experience. If you plan on playing the courses, plan on staying at the American Club, or one of the two resort complexes in Kohler - you won't be disappointed! Also, plan on playing the newest course, Whistling Straits. The 2004 PGA Championship is to be played there, and this is your chance to play it before the pros!

Similar Products Used: Huge lodge like clubhouse, with full pro shop, restaurant, bar and dining. Great practice facilities!
