Played both the Meadow Valleys and the River courses at BWR as part of the Dye-abolical package. Of the two, I preferred the River course as it was more scenic and the river added to the overall appearance (and difficulty) of the course. That said,...More

Played the River course as a foursome on Cinco De Mayo. Having played Whistling Straits last September, I was coming in with the same high expectations. This course did not disappoint. The bag attendants were very friendly and not pushy at all. The clubhouse is...More

Played the 'Championship' course, a combination of 9 Meadows holes and 9 River course holes. Foursome included 2 retirees and 2 young'uns. Round took almost 5 hours due to difficulty, since all four golfers had 10+ handicaps. Really hard course, particularly if course is new...More

Trip to Blackwolf Run exceeded even our high expectations. When coupled with Whistling Straits, Kohler is a must visit golf destination

Perhaps the most scenic inland course I've ever played. Probably spectacular in the fall as the leaves are changing. Course played much harder than the Straits course that I played the next day. Carts are allowed and in hindsight - a caddie would be a...More

River course most challenging of four courses played. Greens are difficult and be ready for blind shots. Cart path only can be frustrating, may wish to take caddy. Lots of fun. Meadows Course is also a good track.

This gets 5 star more for the surprise. You come for Whistling straits and leave trying to decide whether Blackwolf Run was better. The course runs along the river and plays completely different to Whistling. Its definitely tough, and never going to be an easy...More
