Golf Course at Distillery

2024 Season Is Open!

Grab a cocktail and step out back for a leisurely game of golf at Welter’s Folly, our beloved putting green, which is quite the addition to a day in Harbor Country. After lunch or brunch at Staymaker, you can visit the retail desk to purchase a day pass. Pull a putter from the barrel, and we’ll supply you with a Journeyman ball for the day. Kids putt for free but must be accompanied by an adult on the green.

Season passes are available at the retail desk, and a valid ID is required. For $40, you’ll get access to the green anytime during business hours and a Journeyman ball!

SILO BAR

Three Oaks, Michigan

Changing the game this summer with a special menu served right from the Silo: an all-beef footlong with house-made giardiniera, fresh-popped popcorn, ice cream sundaes, and, of course, crafted cocktails and beer. How does a round of golf, a classic Old Fashioned, and a fresh-cut cigar sound? That's what we thought. See you out behind the Featherbone Factory this summer!

THE HISTORY

Welter’s Folly is our family–friendly, 30,000 square foot public putting green located behind the distillery. The 18-hole course features dramatic mounding inspired by the famous Himalayas Putting Green in St. Andrews, Scotland where Journeyman Distillery owner and founder Bill Welter resided.

Welter conceived the idea for the putting green after a hike through the Sand Hills of Wisconsin and a wee dram of Last Feather Rye with friend and course developer Craig Haltom. Like Bill, Craig also lived in Scotland for several years while obtaining his degree in Landscape Architecture at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

Welter’s Folly is one of the many ways we’re bringing a little piece of Scotland to Three Oaks, MI. The green is named after New Jersey’s Pine Valley owner and developer George Crump and the challenges or “folly” in building the now famous golf course. Believed to be one of the 10 largest putting greens in the world and the largest not affiliated with a golf course, Welter’s Folly is truly a sight to see.
