We’re honored to see CR Lutzke featured on Golf.com for his work on the baths at Blackwolf Run. Here’s some of what they wrote:
“Located on 27 acres between the first and 11th holes of the Meadow Valleys course at Blackwolf Run, the Baths will complement Kohler’s existing courses with a highly adaptable golf experience for newbies and seasoned players alike. Set on scenic, glacier-etched terrain, the par-3 course will have holes that range in length from 60 to 160 yards, with three tee boxes on each (golfers who really want to test their skills will be able to stretch some holes as far back as 220 yards). Four water hazards will ornament the grounds, but no forced carries will be required, unless a golfer wants to take them on. Though the course will typically play as a 10-hole layout, an inventive routing will allow for three, six or 12-hole loops as well.
“The putting course will also offer options. Golfers will be able to play it as an 18 or 27-hole routing.
“To that end, the resort tapped Pete Dye protege Chris Lutzke for the project. A respected veteran of golf design, Lutzke worked for 30 years alongside Dye on many of the late, great architect’s most vaunted layouts, including Whistling Straits, a course that Lutzke spent the past two years fine-tuning in preparation for the the 2020 Ryder Cup. For The Baths, Kohler Co. chairman Herb Kohler is credited as Lutzke’s co-designer, drawing on his decades of experience traveling to and studying many of the greatest courses in the United States and Europe.”
