We wanted to see this prestigious golf club and decided to have some food. This is worth a trip even if you don't golf. The bar on the top floor gives you a wonderful view out to the lake.

Great experience and trip. Courses were some of the best I've ever played. When combined with Blackwolf Run, Kohler is a must visit!

Didn’t come to golf, just to explore. The grounds are absolutely beautiful & well maintained. The pro shop, restaurant & pub are very warm and inviting.

If you put together a Top 10 list of courses to play this should be on it. It is an experience you will not find anywhere in the US!

We played both courses on consecutive days with the same caddy. The Irish is adjacent to Whistling Straits and in my opinion a bit easier but by no means easy. Bring your A game and plenty of balls.
