Destination Kohler is home to five- star accommodations and spa services, 12 world-class dining options, a host of outdoor activities and two championship golf courses in Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run. An extraordinary combination of legendary design and visionary inspiration, Whistling Straits offers two distinct courses. Set atop the cliffs overlooking Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan is the rugged, windswept terrain that defines The Straits. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland-and- dunes aspect of The Irish crafts 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 areas shored with railroad ties.
