I am going to play erin hills in a month and a half. From the website and any coverage I have saw this will test this 17 cap. Has anyone played here and if so what should I expect. Also still debating what tee to play from I'm thinking white. My score average this year is 89 so what do think should I take on the full course or play it from where mere mortals should play from. Comments and questions are welcome.

Play the short-enough tees. Whites are still over 6400. I played there when the course was very new. They can make this course play very long if they wish. We played the correct tees for me in the morning (less wind too) and it was very challenging and fun. I shot in the 80's. Then we moved back to the back tees (I don't think they even had markers for the really long tees) and the wind came up. I shot over 100 and struggled like crazy just to get on the greens. I know they have made lots of changes since those first years, but I'll bet the greens are still a challenge and the course plays long and hard. White tees should give you all you can ask for.
reedf, I live in Oconomowoc as well. Have you ever played the Ross design Oconomowoc Golf Club? Awesome course. I really want to become a member there in the next few years.
I will be in the area for August 16,17. I will be playing the 17th if u want to join up for a round.
Nice, that is right by where I work. I like the hole where you have to walk across another fairway to get to the next hole. I think it is when you walk to #3. Very funny. Fun little course, a little different from Erin Hills though...
No not even close to the courses I wanted to play but I did like the fact that it is so old, gave it a cool old school feel. Very easy course but fun and you still have to hit good shots. My time ended up limited on the trip so I just used my stay and play round. Next time in the area( time allowed) i will play a bigger course.
