    Thanks for that, it does look like it will be fun to play in WGT.

    Look at that 1st fairway, there are so many little valleys  that look like they'll funnel the ball straight into the shite!

    608 yards from the back tee, could be fun a strong headwind.

    608 but how long will it play if you can cut the corner with your 2nd shot? Big risk reward shot right off the bat. At least you on # 6 @ Congressional you had 5 holes to think about it.

    Have a look at the 18th,  Possibly worse Par 5

    Crazy golf !

    No. 18
    PAR 5

    Erin Hills closes with a long par 5 that lines up with Holy Hill in the distance. The player must fight his natural tendency to play directly towards the green and must force himself to play his second shot well to the right. The cluster of bunkers short of the green visually dominates the approach, but the player needs to take care not to miss the green to the left, where the closely mown area will propel the ball well away from the green.

    Tee's     Black      Blue      Green      White 

                   663          637         622           542          

     Interesting closing hole.  I wonder if there will be elevation changes on the course similar to Chambers Bay?  And how strong the wind will be?

    This was posted on another Erin Hills thread. It gives the players view of the holes.

    Its basically a Chambers and Oakmont hybrid by the looks of it.
