Travel Thursday: Destination Kohler


Golf is a game that is meant to be played with friends and families around the world, not just in your own backyard. Thanks to our friends at Club Glove, we at SwingxSwing are happy to bring you Travel Thursday, a franchise that will highlight and profile some of the best golf travel destinations in the world.

When you think “golf getaway,” Wisconsin isn’t the first state in the country that jumps to mind, although the folks at Destination Kohler and the American Club are trying to change that. With five championship golf courses that have hosted both major championships and international competitions as well world-class amenities, Kohler, Wisconsin has earned its spot on the short list of premium golf travel destinations.

Reborn in 1981, the American Club has become the home base for those looking to play the world-class courses at Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run. The Straits is perhaps the most well-known of Kohler’s courses having hosted the 2004, 2010 and 2015 PGA Championships, and in 2020, the Straits Course will play host to the Ryder Cup.

The Irish at Whistling Straits offers an inland experience with rolling terrain and meandering streams throughout.  

Blackwolf Run, while it may not have hosted the caliber of events as its sister course, has reached a level playing field in terms of reputation among guests. The River and The Meadow Valley courses offer 36 holes of differing, challenging and entertaining golf. Destination Kohler offers trips, packages and getaways that will stack up with any golf destination anywhere in the world.
