Resort of the Week: Erin Hills (Erin, Wisc.)
Set on a bucolic swath of land — 653 acres of rolling prairie contoured over time by the movement of ancient glaciers — Erin Hills is a stunner in every sense. Located a mere 37 miles northwest of Milwaukee, the brutish course — site of the 2017 U.S. Open won by Brooks Koepka — is worth the trip alone. At more than 7,700 yards from the tips, the course plays much shorter than it looks on paper, thanks to the fast-running fairways. Pick the right tees for your game and you’ll love every minute of it.
If you’re up to the test, most of Erin Hills’ stay-and-play packages offer a complimentary second round — the ultimate two-for-one deal. Match finish in a tie? No worries. Settle your bets on the 18-hole, 63,000 square-foot Drumlin putting course, which opened in 2019 and is lit for evening showdowns. (That means meaningful nine-footers can still be made at 9 p.m.) If Mother Nature obliges, your best night will be spent outdoors around a fire pit, Guinness in hand, as the sun sets over the rolling course. Rest up in the Irish country-inn-style main Lodge or in one of the property’s quaint cottages, which include fireplaces, wet bars and luxe Egyptian linens.
