Whistling Straits - The Straits and The Irish

Arguably the greatest championship course in the United States, the Straits at Whistling Straits has hosted the 2004 and 2010 PGA Championships and the 2007 U.S. Senior Open, and it is the future site of the 2015 PGA Championship and 2020 Ryder Cup.

Blackwolf Run - The River and The Meadow Valleys

Regarded as one of Pete Dye's crowning achievements, Blackwolf Run has hosted a number of professional championships: the Andersen Consulting World Golf Championships in 1995, 1996 and 1997 as well as the U.S. Women's Open in 1998 and 2012.

Whistling Straits

Whistling Straits offers two courses of dynamic contrast and world-class prestige. Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines the Straits, sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Borrowing influences from Irish links courses, the Straits has fescue fairways and massive sand dune bunkers. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland and dunes aspect of the Irish is a deceiving tranquil landscape.

The American Club

Once a dormitory for immigrant employees with a pub, bowling alley and barbershop, The American Club remerged in 1981 as a full-service hotel. Today this Tudor-style redbrick building welcomes guests with gracious hospitality that has earned a Forbes Five-Star and AAA 5-diamond rating.

Inn On Woodlake

Located on the shore of picturesque Wood Lake, this serene 121-room hotel boasts boutique-style guest rooms, state-of-the-art meeting space, and warm common areas ideal for leisure and business travelers. Along with WiFi, and flatscreen TVs, you’ll enjoy the classic comfort and hospitality you’d expect from an inn. Not to mention a signature KOHLER shower experience that is nothing short of sensational.

Kohler Golf Guide

Destination Kohler features some of the best golf in the state... PERIOD! Where else can you find five of the finest courses in the Badger State, let alone the Midwest, all within a 20 mile radius.

The must play course in the area is The Straits Course at Whistling Straits, the ultimate tribute to links-style golf. Pete Dye sculpted two 18 hole masterpieces on the Lake Michigan shoreline, The Straits Course and The Irish Course. Between 2004 and 2020, this property will have hosted three PGA Championships, a U.S. Senior Open, a Palmer Cup, and the game's most prestigious event, the Ryder Cup.

Kohler rose to the golf scene with Blackwolf Run, Pete Dye's Taj Mahal of Americanized golf in the Midwest. A composite of the River and Meadow Valleys courses hosted the 1998 U.S. Women's Open and did again in 2012. If glorious views and remarkable shot values are how you judge a golf course, then Blackwolf Run is the Gold Standard.
