Whistling Straits at The American Club resort
The pride of Wisconsin, the Straits Course is a British Isles-style seaside links set along the shores of Lake Michigan. Annually ranked as one of the best public courses in the U.S., it's also a tough test: immensely long from the tips, with huge pot bunkers, grassy dunes, and undulating greens. Beware of the 17th hole. Evocatively titled "Pinched Nerve," the long par 3 requires some tricky negotiations.
