  • Two of the best golf courses I've ever played. The views of Lake Michigan on the Straits and the Scottish longhorn sheep roaming the Irish make you feel like you're in the UK. The Cassie's make the ex...  more »

  • Beautiful but very tough course along Lake Michigan. Started my twilight round at 3:45 PM to save a couple of bucks and no caddie. Well forget twilight, paid over $300.00 and didn't finish the round. ...  more »

  • By far the best public golf course I've ever played worth every dime. I want to thank everyone at Whistling Straits they made my experience absolutely unbelievable.
  • Played the Irish Course on May 7th, 2017. Temperature was 47 degrees, along with 20 mph wind gusts. Took my son & friends along. The course is a challenge, as it really makes you think. The holes are really cool and you will be tired by the end of your round from the terrain. Would play again, no doubt.
  • Great Club House and bar area. Didn't play a round so I cannot comment on the course.
  • Played Irish and loved it! Very fair and playable yet challenging and gorgeous.
  • Played the Irish course. Was an experience. Most expensive course I've ever played. Not sure I would do it again as cost is somewhat prohibitive. But definitely worth it for the one time experience.
