About This Course

Designed by Pete Dye, Whistling Straits emulates the great old seaside links courses of the British Isles, invoking an image of the game founded more than 400 years ago. The Straits Course is open with rugged and windswept terrain. A more mature course than one would expect, golfers encounter huge sandy areas, deep pot bunkers,grass-topped dunes, big and undulating greens and majestic views of Lake Michigan from each of its 18 holes. The dramatic par-3 17th, the course's unofficial signature hole, features a green precariously perched over water and sand. Whistling Straits also features:

Two miles of uninterrupted shoreline on Lake Michigan

- Eight holes hugging the Lake Michigan shoreline
- Bluffs and massive sand dune areas
- Natural fescue fairways
- A flock of Scottish Blackface sheep call the course home
- Elevation change on the course (hole 15) is approximately 80 feet
- The Straits Course is a walking course; walking distance for 18 holes is approximately five miles
- Three stone bridges at holes 9, 10 and 18
