ARCHITECTS – Ron Whitten, Michael Hurdzon and Dana Fry collaborated to design Erin Hills Golf Course, which opened in 2006.

ABOUT ERIN HILLS – Robert Lang purchased the property in 1999 and a year later, he invited Whitten, Hurdzon and Fry out to look at the landscape with the hope of building a golf course. The natural setting proved to be perfect for a championship layout. Construction began in September 2004 and completed in 2006. The course had such potential that the USGA awarded the 2008 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship before it opened to the public. This past February, the USGA awarded Erin Hills a second championship, the 2011 U.S. Amateur.
