With four championship courses designed by Pete Dye, the Kohler Resort in Wisconsin is one of the top golfing destinations in the United States.
Kohler Resort’s courses rank among some of the country’s best, each bringing unique qualities that supply drama and excitement to every round. Of course, Kohler is also home to the famous Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run courses.
Kohler golf courses offer guests the opportunity to experience exceptional play on courses that have hosted the world’s biggest tournaments, including the PGA Championship, Ryder Cup, and US Women’s Open.
Overlooking Lake Michigan, Kohler Golf Resort is both picturesque and full of all the amenities you could need for a golf trip to Wisconsin. When you’re not on the fairway, you can look forward to luxury facilities, a five-star spa, and excellent dining options.
With courses that featured in the 2015 PGA Championship, 2012 US Women’s Open, and the 2021 Ryder Cup, those teeing off at Destination Kohler Resort have the chance to play in the footsteps of the pro’s.
Built into the Wisconsin coast, the Straits is reminiscent of traditional Scottish and Irish links courses, and its windswept terrain offers a challenging round with breathtaking views. Having hosted the Ryder Cup in 2021, guests can relive the iconic moments while winding their way to the final hole.
The serene landscape, just inland from the lake, may give players a false sense of security when they play the Irish Straits. Water frequently comes into play as four streams wind their way through the course, and other hazards in the form of dunes and grassland feature regularly.
Sculpted into the natural Wisconsin landscape, this course features beautiful meadows and valleys to bring elevation change into play at various points. This long and difficult course will be a test for amateurs and professionals alike.

This was my first real golf trip and it did not disappoint. We played the Irish and Meadows Valley courses at Black Wolf Run and they were pristine. They also have a 10 hole par 3 that was a fun walk with the Sunday bags they included. The other two days we played the Rivers and Straights course at Whistling straights and it was breathtaking. To be able to play on a course where a Ryder Cup was held was truly remarkable. Our caddies at the Straights Course made us feel like pros for a day (even though we didn’t play like one). If this is your first time going, I would opt for forecaddies. They can help you with aiming points and tips on where to avoid trouble. They know these greens like the back of their hand and will easily shave strokes off of your round. One free perk that was a pleasant surprise were free brats at the turn. Who doesn’t like free? The weather and wind can be dicey so make sure to plan accordingly. We had sunny weather all 4 days but the wind off the lake can make you chilly if you aren’t dressed for it. The American club where we stayed was by far the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at and is super close to all the courses. Our travel specialist Connor Vogel took care of all the details and made planning hassle free.
Every aspect of the Kohler Golf experience was A+. Everyone from caddies to clubhouse staff were professional and friendly. We are considering it to be an annual destination for our traveling golf group.
