I had the opportunity to spend two nights at the American club as part of a business entertainment trip. I have to say that it is one of my favorite spots ever. The hotel, built as worker housing over 100 years ago, oozes charm. It may not be totally up to date, but that is the cool part. The grounds...

Mr. Kohler has built 4 great golf courses and a first class hotel. Whistling Straits and the Irish are located on or near Lake Michigan and not near the hotel. The other two courses with Black Wolf Run are very close to the resort and are inland. Hotel staff is superb. The room at the Carriage House which is adjacent...
