By Brian Weis
Destination Kohler - Wisconsin's golf leader and home to four internationally acclaimed Pete Dye-designed courses across Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run - announces the openings of the Straits Course at Whistling Straits and River Course at Blackwolf Run on Friday, April 26. The Irish Course at Whistling Straits and Meadow Valleys Course at Blackwolf Run opened April 17.
Kohler Golf has collectively hosted six Major Championships with the Straits gearing up to host golf's preeminent international competition, the 2020 Ryder Cup. A ceremonial symbol linking the past, present and future of the Ryder Cup, the Silver Putter plaque is currently on display at Whistling Straits for guests to enjoy.
Destination Kohler is taking reservations for the popular "Dye-Abolical" and "Golf Kohler" stay-and-play packages. The three-night "Dye-Abolical" package includes four rounds of golf per person, one each on The Straits and The Irish courses at Whistling Straits and The River and Meadow Valleys courses at Blackwolf Run. Cart, caddie and forecaddie fees are included, along with a 30-minute golf lesson and gift pouch with logoed items. Complimentary replays are available on The Irish and Meadow Valleys courses. Golfers also receive a 20% discount at the Forbes Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa. Package rates begin at $1,014 at the Inn on Woodlake and $1,191 at The American Club, based on double occupancy.
"Golf Kohler" differs only in terms of stay (two nights versus three) and rounds of golf (three versus four). Play on The Straits Course - three-time PGA Championship host and 2020 Ryder Cup venue - and The River Course - recently ranked among the five best Pete Dye golf courses by Golfweek - is included. Rates begin at $781 at the Inn on Woodlake and $899 at The American Club.
"We're the only resort in the world featuring four golf courses by Pete Dye, who is widely regarded as the greatest architect of his generation," says Dirk Willis, PGA, Vice President - Golf, Landscape & Retail, Kohler Co. "With golf season fast approaching in the Midwest and with demand being strong, we encourage early bookings to ensure you can play our championship courses leading up to the best American and European golfers arriving for the 2020 Ryder Cup."
Destination Kohler's American Club is the Midwest's only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond hotel in Wisconsin. Sister property, the boutique Inn on Woodlake, re-opened in 2018 after a year-long expansion and features new suites that are well-appointed for group travel.
