What options do I have for getting around the golf course?

Can I ship my clubs to and from Erin Hills?
With airlines increasing baggage fees and the inconvenience of carrying clubs to and from the airport, you may ship directly to Erin Hills, and we can ship your clubs home for you as well. Please make sure all items are clearly identified with your name and contact information. Please see our Golf Bag Shipping page.
Will you store my clubs overnight?
Yes, securing your clubs overnight is a complimentary service.
What is the Erin Hills dress code?
"Players shall present a neat appearance in both clothing and personal grooming. Clothing worn by guests should be consistent with currently accepted golf fashion." The management of Erin Hills reserves the right to interpret this regulation. Acceptable golf shirts at Erin Hills must have a collar, either a traditional fold-down, a raised crew neck, or mock turtleneck collar that clearly differentiates it from a tee shirt. No denim of any kind is allowed. Shorts must be Bermuda length. No gym shorts are allowed. No halter-tops are allowed. Metal spikes are not allowed. Cargo shorts, cargo pants or tennis shoes are not preferred. Baseball cap style hats must be worn in the traditional fashion with the bill facing forward.
What are your booking/cancellation policies?
Tee times may be made at anytime for the 2013 golf season. Golf and lodging reservations can be made by calling 866-772-4769 and tee times may be made on-line by visiting www.erinhills.com. Golf tee times must be canceled 48 hours prior to the scheduled time of play or a $25/player fee will be charged to the cardholder on file. If weather is an issue, the player may cancel up until their tee time. If weather forces a player off the course, Erin Hills will issue a pro-rated rain check. Guest rooms require a 72-hour cancellation notice or one night will be charged to the cardholder on file.
Can our group play a five-some?
Playing in a group of five is a decision for the golf professionals. Unless your group is the last of the day, this request will be typically declined.
Do you have twilight times available?
Erin Hills’ management believes that our guests should experience the entire golf course and therefore does not offer twilight tee times.
Does Erin Hills have locker rooms and showers available?
Erin Hills offers small locker rooms for men and women with complimentary showers and amenities.
I heard your golf course is very challenging to play and walk. What can we expect once out on the golf course?
Glacial deposits, left here more than 10,000 years ago, formed the golf course. The contours are never ending, making it a demanding walk. The contours also contribute to the recommended need for a caddie to assist in learning how to play this firm and fast course.
How long does it take to play a typical round?
Please plan on a four hour and forty-five minute round of golf.
Does Erin Hills serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
Our dining room is open one hour prior to the first tee time, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Can we bring our own food and beverages onto the course?
Carry-on food and beverages are prohibited.
Do I need a reservation to come out for lunch or dinner?
A reservation is not necessary to eat at Erin Hills or to stop by for a drink. The convivial ambience of Erin Hills welcomes all. However, reservations for dinner in the Clubhouse are recommended and can be made by calling 866-772-4769.

If the Lodge and cottages do not have any space available, where else could we stay in the area?
