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 and is inspired by the famous Himalayan 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 that the distillery is 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.
