The husband played this course. The PGA tournament to be there next month, the were setting up stands and hospitality tents already. A hard course with slope rating of 137-152. The greens were slow as they are growing them out for the tournament . Beautiful setting on Lake Michigan, compare to the Irish countryside.

WOW. The site of the 2015 PGA is unbelievable, Pete Dye at his best. The course is in great shape, walking without carts and caddies are a must. Plays long and may not be for the faint of heart golfer. Be prepared for lots of photos and great views.

I have the good fortune of entertaining clients at some excellent attractions and this time, I was entertained by a vendor. The Straits course is a bucket list course and I must return. Yes you must walk the course, but there is something majestic about that experience. You really get to take the course and the surroundings in and enjoy... More

Best course I've played. Fairways are like carpets. Scenic views, great caddies. A little expensive but worth it as a one off (each year)

Truly an exceptional and a gem of a golf course with amazing views and challenging holes demanding accuracy. The restaurant and pro shop are very good and so are the locker facilities. The caddies were a huge disappointment and completely uninterested. We had four groups and everyone agreed the caddies were below par. Not sure if management really cares about... More

Beautiful golf course and first-class treatment by the pro shop staff and other employees. The course is quite demanding and it is important to pick the correct tees. Caddies were helpful and very competent. The views were beyond our expectations. Has to be one of the best public accessible courses in the US.

Had the pleasure of playing the Straits course on a beautiful day this weekend - the course itself lived up to even my wildest expectations. An absolutely tremendous layout, in excellent condition, on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan - frankly, had no idea the lake water could be so clear/blue, but it was. Can't say enough about how amazing... More

We went as a group to play the famous Whistling Straits and the Irish courses. They are truly breathtaking and live up to their reputation. The Straits course seems to run alongside the water for the whole way except for holes 1 and 18. They achieve this by having two levels. As a result you have a view of the... More

The course was top notch. You obviously get what you pay for and being a golf fanatic I definitely think its worth the price. The course was in great shape, fairways and greens were immaculate. I am a low handicapper and found this course to be extremely difficult. If you miss the fairways say hello to a double bogey. The... More
