    no wind, course was in very good condition and I had Clintons caddie from the white house. What a great time it was like he and I were at a PGA tournament. He had me draining putts and hitting the ball out of the fescue grass down the fairway but most of the day was fairways and greens as he indicated at the turn to his fellow caddies thumbs up at the turn. A 78 for the day! I hand it to Dye on this one he designed the course well unlike French lick where he failed to take advantage of the elevations and terrain. This is in the top ten courses to play I rate it slightly higher than pebble beach. Oh the sheep a great touch by the way and the old stone clubhouse. In Kohler?

    Absolutely the best experience of my golfing life. A perfectly calm day, great caddies, and a golf course that made memories that will last forever.
    Put it on your bucket list!

    Bullshit course. Let spectators trample areas you have to play on because they want to pack the course to pad their greedy little pockets. Then penalize you for hitting areas they've let get trampled. How screwed up is that.

    One of the best course (if not the best) you can play in the United States.

    This Pete Dye course is simply breath taking. Amazing view of Lake Michigan

    Whoa baby! If your knees aren't shaking on some of these shots, check your pulse. This course may have been built in the mold of Ballybunion, but there is no course quite like this one. It's as tough as it gets, and hope the wind is down, especially down the back stretch. 18's green is gargantuan.
