Erin Hills in Wisconsin, recently named as the venue of the 2017 US Open, is building a new clubhouse.
The new building, which will provide an additional 14,000 sq ft of floorspace, has primarily been designed to provide additional locker room capacity, given the large events that Erin Hills will be hosting over the next few years, starting with the 2011 US Amateur. When not in use as a locker room, the new facility will be used as a restaurant.
Three four bedroomed suits buildings are also under construction around the site of the new clubhouse. Wisconsin-based firms Wade Weissmann Architecture and Ruvin Bros have been responsible for the design and project management respective.
Erin Hills, which was designed by the firm of Hurdzan/Fry, in conjunction with Golf Digest architecture editor Ron Whitten, has undergone a number of alterations since its 2006 opening, and in particular since the course was sold by original developer Bob Lang to Milwaukee-based venture capitalist Andrew Ziegler.
