Unique in 2017, will be Wisconsin's first hosting of a US Open Championship at the Erin Hills Golf Club.

During the week of June 12-18, 2017, the U.S. Open Championship will be contested in Wisconsin for the first time. The championship will welcome the world’s top players vying for the title that has been contested since 1895. The United States Golf Association will provide the ultimate, most comprehensive test in golf to identify the best of the best, with past champions including Bob Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Wisconsin’s own Andy North and Tiger Woods.

The U.S. Open is played at iconic venues around the country, with 51 courses to date holding the distinction of U.S. Open site. Erin Hills will be the sixth public access course to host the championship (joining Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Bethpage, Torrey Pines and Chambers Bay). More than 35,000 spectators are expected to attend each day.

The U.S. Open is considered one of the preeminent worldwide golf events, delivering the most memorable moments in golf history. The 2017 U.S. Open Championship, held on the grand stage of Erin Hills, will be its 117th playing. 

PaR nz Golfing Holidays offers full packages to the 2017 U.S. Open including daily tickets, local accommodation, hospitality passes and add-on golf holidays to great courses in the surrounding Wisconsin region and around Chicago.

Long before golf was played at Erin Hills, the 652 acres of pristine land was host to icy fingers and streams from the last glacier to cover south central Wisconsin. Rivers carved graceful features into the landscape, turning the Kettle Moraine into the diverse region that it is today. Architects Michael Hurdzan, Dana Fry and Ron Whitten adopted a minimalist approach in designing Erin Hills, as nature had sculpted the land so well that the golf holes seemed to emerge from the property. 

Erin Hills is a course like none other — routed over the kettle morain areas left by glaciers, surrounded by wetlands and a river, with ground that consists of glacial till of varied composition of sand and small rock. In an unconventional decision for a course in Wisconsin, the architects used fine fescue for the fairways to emphasize the natural contours of the property and provide a firm-playing surface that plays shorter than it’s length on the scorecard.
