Erin Hills to be sold, remain public

BY foxsports • October 25, 2009

Andy Ziegler, co-founder and CEO of Artisan Partners Limited, has agreed to buy Erin Hills from Robert Lang. The deal is expected to close on Friday.

Ziegler says he sees the deal as a chance to give back to golf in Wisconsin. Lang bought the property 10 years ago and will stay on as a consultant.

The golf course opened in 2006. It is in the Kettle Moraine area northwest of Milwaukee and was named America's best new course by Golf Magazine. It hopes to land the U.S. Open in 2017.
