Road trips

Another major championship isn't coming to Hazeltine National until 2024 at the earliest, but a handful are coming to the Midwest starting next summer and beyond:

2017 U.S. Open

June 12-18, Erin Hills, Erin, Wis.

It's a rare Open in the Midwest, at a decade-old venue on a big and brawny, high-end, daily-fee layout 45 minutes northwest of Milwaukee. Tickets for sale now at

2017 Solheim Cup

Aug. 14-20, Des Moines Golf and C.C., West Des Moines, Iowa

The best women from the United States and Europe play a Ryder Cup-type format for three days in Iowa. Weekly tickets for sale at, volunteers still accepted.

2020 Ryder Cup

September 2020 (dates TBD) Whistling Straits, Haven, Wis.

After a 2018 stop in Paris, the nationalistic match-play event comes back to the Midwest, five hours away on a course that's a little bit of Ireland right on Lake Michigan.

BMW Championship?

The FedEx Cup playoff event is played every September on a rotation of mostly Midwestern courses. It's booked through 2019. Don't be surprised if Windsong Farm in Independence gets one after that.
