By Ken Liebeskind
Whistling Straits, a magnificent golf resort in Kohler, WI offers two course designed by Pete and Alice Dye. The Straits course, a 7,514 yard par 72 gem that hosted a PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open, replicates a British Isles seaside links course along a two mile stretch of Lake Michigan. The best known of the Whistlings Straits courses features vast rolling greens, deep pot bunkers and grass topped dunes, with winds whipping in off the lake.
....The signature hole on the Whistlings Straits course is the 17th, a 223 yard par 3 with towering sand dunes and the lake to the left, which demands a long and accurate shot to the green. The course also features eight holes hugging the lake, elevation changes of 80 feet and three stone bridges at holes 9, 10 and 18.

The Whistling Straits courses also include the Irish course, an inland grass and dune layout that plays 7,201 yards from the tips. It has a 75.6 course rating with a slope rating of 146. The Irish course may be more the most difficult of the Whistling Straits courses because of the gnarly rough, ponds, streams and ravines. The Irish is also laden with waste bunkers, which are minimally maintained to let the elements reshape them.
If you get a chance to play one of the Whistling Straits courses, come armed with a driver that will set you up for a great score. www.scientificgolfclubs.com, the site that specializes in scientifically designed clubs, scores big (and long) with the Controller 460cc driver. This is the max size driver with a club head coated with armor piercing metal that adds even more distance to your drives - 20 to 40 yards for average players. The coating makes the driver twice as hard as steel and 70 percent harder than titanium, so it may be the hardest driver available anywhere.
Just ask the long ball champ who claims the Controller 460cc driver is the best driver he's used in more than 20 years of hitting monster drives. Long ball hitters can reach many par 4s in one with the Controller 460cc driver and average drivers will hit drives normally associated with long ball strikers.
