Blackwolf Run - Meadow Valleys:

A Fine Collection of Challenging Par 4 Holes.

Herb Kohler, current patriarch of the Kohler fixtures empire wanted to bring world-class golf venues to this charming little corner of Wisconsin. He hired Pete Dye and the rest as they say is history. Opened to high regard and demand in 1988, the original routing had an additional 18 holes added to the property over time to create both the current River and Meadow / Valleys courses. The original composite course has hosted the USGA Womens’ Open in 1998 and again in 2012. Featuring a blend of open meadows, and holes situated along the many water courses, this routing has greens that are as challenging as any at the American Club. Accuracy and being close to the pins is a must to score well on Meadow Valleys.

Feature Holes Descriptions:

Pete Dye is a master of creating very challenging holes that require a little bit of everything to conquer them. The Meadow Valleys has a collection of Par 4 holes that are long, require shot shaping and a whole lot of touch to match par. Not overly long, Hole 5 is a dogleg right that has bunkers protecting the right side and the ideal line. The green is guarded by pinching trees and bunkers. The Ninth is brute playing downhill but still needing a long iron or wood to get home to the peninsula green guarded by water rigth and behind the very sloped green. Hole 14, Nature’s Course, plays slightly downhill off the tee, but it is the second shot that makes the hole so challenging. A downhill, mid-iron to a green protected by the river and a creek might be the most demanding shot of the round. The final hole forces a lengthy carry over the Sheboygan River to the shared double green. Best of luck!
