Putting Course Coming to Erin Hills in 2019

As we build off the momentum created by hosting the 2017 U.S. Open Championship®, Erin Hills is excited to announce that an 18-hole putting course will be added to the property for the 2019 season.

The putting course will be located to the north of the 1st tee and will be directly in front of the porch of the clubhouse on top of a ridge, even further enhancing the iconic view from the clubhouse. The putting course wraps around a ridge and will feature bold undulations to provide a fun variety of holes for golfers to enjoy in the afternoon and evenings. It will be lit, allowing for friendly after-dinner competitions.

"Building a one-of-a kind putting facility at Erin Hills is incredibly exciting. This is both an added fun factor and a way to practice putting after you test your skills on a U.S. Open Championship golf course. Whether enjoyed during the day, or with a drink under the lights, we hope players will laugh, have fun and come back again and again to enjoy our new creation," said Dana Fry and Jason Straka, designers of the new putting course.

The putting course is scheduled to open August 1, 2019, or earlier if Mother Nature cooperates.
