Golf fans are most familiar with Whistling Straits as a venue for the PGA Championship. Although the impressive course was only opened as recently as 1998, the major has already been held here on three occasions: 2004, 2010 and 2015. It will now host the biggest event in golf in 2020. The Ryder Cup will be played on the Straights Course, which was designed by famous golf course architect Pete Dye and is a classic British-style links course. With a length of 7,100 metres, it is spread over a three-kilometre stretch of the banks of Lake Michigan. The course has roughly 1,000 bunkers – nobody knows exactly how many, as the number is constantly changing, due to the effect of the wind and weather on the sandy ground.
