The American Club

Kohler, Wisconsin

Along the western shores of Lake Michigan, the Middle Coast of America is represented in AAA Five-Diamonds and two words: “Destination Kohler.” The four golf courses may be Pete Dye designs, yet they are distinct. Blackwolf Run’s two layouts, The River and Meadow Valleys, are named aptly. Indeed, Dye’s stamp is embedded deep in these rolling woods and wetlands. A much different story unfolds at Whistling Straits, home to The Straits and The Irish set along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Add to this the new, luxurious Kohler Waters Spa where wellness assumes wide definition – kick, step, spin or swim to fitness. But of course, the food and wine experience will not be upstaged. Fine dining is found in the Immigrant Room, where wholesome Midwest flavors are boldly refocused. Visit the Winery’s European cheese locker or any of ten restaurants and prepare to lose all previous athletic ambition.
