Irish Barn

at Whistling Straits®

A distinctive fieldstone barn with the east side exposed, the Irish Barn overlooks Whistling Straits holes  No. 9, No. 10 and No. 18 and Lake Michigan. This fieldstone structure is reminiscent of barns in the Irish countryside and serves as a most unique location for weddings – the perfect balance of rustic elegance. The east wall is entirely open to the elements, although canvas walls with windows can be pulled down, and stand heaters can be turned on if needed. Guests can easily flow in and out, perhaps catching a glimpse of sheep roaming the course.
