The course is spectacular and the service is superior. I can’t say more about it than has already been said!

That said, the cottage was a disappointment. We had 4 couples (8 people). What struck me was the fact that they never anticipated there would be 8 people. 4 bath towels, 4 wash cloths, 4 chairs……..you get the picture! How about 8 coffee cups? How about some ice? How about 8 chairs on the back porch? How about 8 chairs inside?

It’s clearly set up for 4 guys to eat,drink and play. Accommodating what they sold wasn’t even an after thought. Golf, a 5. Accommodating a 1. Average……a generous 3

Beautiful golf course with a pristine practice facility and great staff.

Caddie was only so-so which is why I give it 4 stars. Spent a lot of time talking about himself and how good he was at golf. Got a bit into politics in a way that didn't feel appropriate.

I played one of the best rounds of my life though and found that everything was in great shape. Very fast greens.

Cool memorabilia in the pro shop from the US Open.

The course is in the middle of nowhere and not as dramatic as Whistling Straits. Thought it was much better than Blackwolf Run.

This was a great experience. Played as a single on consecutive days. Service was consistently excellent. Caddies were friendly and knowledgeable. Course was beautiful and challenging. Property and all amenities were impeccable. I didn't stay on property but it was worth the drive out to Erin Hills.

Played Erin Hills from white tees, despite being advised by a friend to play one tee forward. Problem is the forward tees are only 5400 yards while whites are 6200. Huge difference and close to unplayable. Plays very long due to lots of uphill greens wth false fronts, enormous fairway bunkers, had lots of 5 woods into par 4's designed for 8 irons. When the Open was here they widened the fairways and Koepka destroyed the course. So they have ended up with a course the pros blitz and the rest of us can't play. In addition the overall resort layout is ridiculous--clubhouse is on huge hill overlooking course, small outdoor dining area, no patio, several hundred yards downhill to the lodge/rooms, several hundred more to practice tee, then several hundred more back to first tee. What were they thinking? To top it off, very expensive and at checkout they did not even bother to ask if I enjoyed my stay. Would not go back or recommend.

My wife and I had some time to kill so we drove out to Erin Hills to look at the pro shop and have a drink and perhaps dinner at the restaurant. The parking lot was about 25 % full and after parking we walked toward the restaurant where a young man informed us that we could look at the pro shop but unless we had a reservation, we were not allowed in the restaurant. Upon entering the clubhouse we were again told politely but firmly that only golfers, guests, or those with reservations could enter the restaurant. As we walked past the restaurant we noticed that aside from one man at the bar, the place WAS TOTALLY EMPTY. I suppose I could have picked up my cell phone and made a reservation, but after being told twice in a polite but somewhat robotic tone that we weren't really welcome, we left. If it wasn't so absurd, it would be laughable. I'm sure its a great place but for us, Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits, here we come

My buddy and I had just played Whistling Straits and had a few hours to kill before heading back to the Milwaukee airport. We decided to drive to Erin Hills to have some lunch.
We went to the Pub and were refused service. No golf no food. There were only 3 people seated.
The bar guy was very robotic. It is our policy to not serve unless you have reservations made 24 hours in advance.
We went to the restaurant in the main lodge. Again, same story from the robot staff. There were many empty tables. They must all have the same talking points.
They really know how to make a person feel that they are not welcome.
Not sure what management school the owners attended. Perhaps none?
They practice a NO customer service approach. They are rude!
Go to Kohler for a first class five star experience.

Just got back from a one night stay over with 2 rounds of golf at Erin Hills with three college friends. The lodge and cottages are beautiful and the golf course is tons of fun to play. Make sure you are in walking shape as there are no carts allowed. Lots of hills etc. Restaurants have great food and the service is exceptional. Milwaukee is a 45 minute drive if you want to get some nightlife but don't count on an UBER picking you up because you are out in the middle of nowhere. We hadn't seen each other in over 10 years so we had a lot of catching up to do so no crazy night out was necessary. I am sure Erin Hills would arrange transportation if you wanted to go to town.

The scene there is majestic and we stuck around campus and enjoyed a killer steak in the clubhouse and then walked (stumbled?) down to the Irish Pub to sit by the fire pits. Food and cocktails are reasonably priced and the servers were on their game and our glasses were never empty. Everyone who worked there greeted us with a smile and our caddies on the course were top notch. The $55 caddy fee is charged to your room and you pay the gratuity separately so don't do what we did and pay for both. Once we figured it out we went to the front desk and they immediately credited our room account. US Open Venue, no need to talk about the challenges on the course. Bring your A game, we were 3 single digit and a 13 HDCP, played the middle tees both days and spent a lot of time looking for balls in the fescue. Soooo, if your topping and shanking and spraying it out there you will spend most of your time looking for balls in the Heather.

We were 4 guys in a three bedroom suite with 4 beds/3 baths and we were very comfortable. You can pull up the room diagrams on the website to see what accommodation would best suit your group. With that being said, we all agreed that next time we go we would spend the extra $200 per head to get into one of the cottages but anywhere in the Lodge/Barn is comfortable. We were 4 guys but, we saw many couples there enjoying themselves so it is not just a guys golf trip destination. Just remember to behave yourselves around the fire pits in mixed company...

Great spot, I will be back for sure. The course is closed until July 1, 2017 so unless you have qualified for the US Open, you will have to wait until after the Open is over to play there.

Email three/seven buddies, commit and pull the trigger on the trip, you will not be disappointed. OR, grab your wife and go spend some quality time together.

I hope this helps.

My wife and I played the course twice on a Saturday and Sunday, and I can't say that we have ever had a better golf experience. The course is challenging but fair, and drop-dead gorgeous. The caddies were knowledgeable about the course and made the experience all the better. And the staff is extremely welcoming and friendly.

We also had dinner at the Lodge following our Saturday round. I do have to pass on my wife's comment on the very masculine menu: "So this is what guys eat when they're together?" I have to agree with her that it's a relatively uninspired menu that doesn't match up to the American Club at Koehler. But the golf was so good that it can be excused.

Fantastic course and Sam was the best caddie I have ever had . Read all the greens perfectly and a pleasure to deal with . Be ready for a good walk but worth it . Nice little hotel with very good food . I will definitely be back .

What a beautiful setting for a unique golf course! Service starts with the greeting at the bag drop, to the front door, into the pro shop and throughout the clubhouse. Oh, and the golf is very special! Beautiful rolling fairways mixed with pretty difficult bunkering. And the greens can be pretty challenging. Will be great to see the pros tackle it next June at the U.S. Open. Biggest hurdle may be tiring from the incredible amount of miles covered (probably 7-8 miles) with numerous "climb one hill, down the hill, climb the next" and the green to tee hikes can be long. Play the recommended tees for you...can play longer than the yardage, especially if the wind is blowing. Facilities are wonderful and the food is delicious in the restaurant...now if we can only figure out a way to stay on property (they are always booked!). Enjoy the place, the walk, the round and your caddies!
