“Big fish” tales are a concept that golfers are almost as familiar with as the fishermen themselves. The “Big Fish” in this club’s title is a literal reference to angling, however, as the National Freshwater Hall of Fame is just down the road in Hayward, Wisconsin. The proprietors were able to hook a big one when they landed an architect for the property: Pete Dye. The Kohler resort on Lake Michigan (including Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run) is perhaps the most celebrated location in Dye’s oeuvre, however he got away to a more isolated location in the state for this development.

This course is a story of two nines, with the front being laid out among grassland, while the back winds its way through a forest. Those trees rarely come into play however, with most agreeing the windy first-half of the round will play considerably more difficult.

Somewhat ironically — both for a designer noted for his water hazards, and for a town noted for its fishing history — there is only one hole at Big Fish where you could potentially catch a big fish.
