Destination Kohler

Off the shores of Lake Michigan lies Destination Kohler — an idyllic combination of luxury and elegance surrounded by nature’s wild majesty. Capturing the hearts of all who visit, this Wisconsin resort is a remarkable haven where champions play and spirits are renewed.

Future site of the 2020 Ryder Cup — the first time in more than 20 years the competition will be held on a public venue — Destination Kohler was host to the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championships, the 2007 U.S. Senior Open and the 1998 and 2012 U.S. Women’s Open. Four Pete Dye-designed layouts within the two championship venues, Whistling Straits® and Blackwolf Run®, feature 72 holes of outstanding golf.

Whistling Straits, an extraordinary combination of legendary design and visionary inspiration, offers two distinct courses. Touches of Irish and Scottish charm, sculpted atop the coastline along Lake Michigan, create the rugged, windswept terrain that defines The Straits®. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland-and-dunes aspect of The Irish presents a deceivingly tranquil landscape.

Blackwolf Run offers two award-winning courses skillfully designed for golfers who appreciate the game’s great traditions. Both courses, The River and The Meadow Valleys, feature scores of pot bunkers and water hazards shored with railroad ties to complement the Old World ambience.

Guests seeking the ultimate in relaxation discover indulgence and serenity at the Forbes Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa, which boasts signature Kohler hydrotherapy services, innovative Kohler bathing products and more than 50 services. Amenities include men’s and women’s plunge pools, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a relaxation pool, finishing spa and rooftop deck with coed whirlpool and fireplaces.
A national historic landmark property, The American Club® sets the standard for uncompromising service and gracious hospitality. The hotel is one of only 65 in North America with both the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond distinction. This year-round resort has long enjoyed a reputation as a premier destination.
