US Open: These cool drone shots will make you truly appreciate Erin Hills

 

 

 

The awesome thing about golf is the selection of beautiful golf courses. Erin Hills, which hosted the U.S. Open this week, is just as pretty as any.

The official Erin Hills YouTube channel features multiple drone clips of each hole. Each one is breathtaking so take a look at three of them, as you can feel the wind being taking away from you.

 

Let’s start with the famous, and stunning ninth hole. It was once just an “extra” hole, but was put into the course routing, and what a brilliant idea that was.

Next we flap our wings and fly over one of the most uniqe holes on the course, the 12th. Although this hole only has one bunker on it, it is still one of the toughest, with a fairway that can throw you off your game. This may be the only hole in all of golf where the fairway can play as a hazard at times.

Finally, let’s take a look at the sun soaked, picturesque 18th hole. This hole features the beautiful clubhouse in the background, while the legendary Holy Hill looks down on those who walk the track. A great way to finish a round on this public gem.

So if you ever wanted to see the 2017 U.S. Open course from a different perspective, then there you go. Paul Hundley is the man responsible for these amazing flyovers.

Take them in, and after doing that, go visit Erin Hills and tee it up. I can’t stress enough that this course is open to the public, so you can step on a piece of U.S. Open history.

It’s a course that will host many majors in the future. Would love to see it host some PGA Championships as its well deserved. Bravo, Erin Hills.
