Crowd at Ryder Cup Final

It's not every day you get the chance to stay at a Forbes Five-Star resort and play a major championship and Ryder Cup site for such a great rate...

But that's exactly what you can do if you book this unadvertised package before May 29th (you can schedule your visit anytime during the 2018 season).

Now, many of you are probably already familiar with just how great this resort is...

But what you may not realize is, Destination Kohler is...

Fast and Easy to Reach from Anywhere in North America

Kohler, Wisconsin

As you can see from the photo above, Destination Kohler is conveniently located in the Midwest (Kohler, Wisconsin).

The photo also shows all the nonstop flights to the primary airport in Milwaukee (MKE).

To give you an idea, it's only a two-and-a-half hour flight from cities such as New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Orlando and Philadelphia.

And if Milwaukee airport doesn't work for you, there are several others to choose from, including Green Bay (GRB), Madison (MSN) or Chicago's O'Hare (ORD).

(Private aircraft can land at Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, five minutes away from the resort.)

Did You Catch That Ryder Cup Reference Above?

Yes, Whistling Straits, which hosted the PGA Championship in 2015, is hosting the Ryder Cup in 2020 -- the first public course in the United States to do so since 1991.

(And after the U.S.'s triumph on home soil in 2016, it's guaranteed that the Ryder Cup atmosphere in 2020 is going to be epic.)

But Destination Kohler's golf lineup goes far beyond Whistling Straits.

In fact, all four courses have been ranked as "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses" by Golf Digest.

Attention Couples and Families: It's Not Just a Great Golf Resort...It's One of the Best All-Around Resorts in America

It's great if you and your main squeeze/family like to play the same amount of golf, but if you don't, Destination Kohler is one of the few resorts whose other amenities are equally memorable.

And get this: accommodations for children 15 and under are complimentary.

Here's a quick rundown of some of the other activities and amenities...

The Kohler Waters Spa (Receive a 20% Discount with this Package)

Kohler Waters Spa

There is so much that can be said about the Kohler Waters Spa, but this fact kind of says it all:

It is one of only 48 spas in the world to earn a Forbes Five-Star rating.

Granted, Kohler has a bit of an unfair advantage.

It incorporates its best and most innovative shower and bath technologies into many of its spa treatments and facilities.

According to the notoriously hard-to-please editors of Golf Odyssey...

"The Kohler Waters Spa is amazing. You'll revel in marble floors, out-of-this-world showers, hot tubs with mosaic tiles, and an indoor pool with its own waterfall.

This gorgeous therapeutic and pampering sanctuary features a glass-enclosed rooftop deck and incredible whirlpool, steam, and sauna facilities.

So many times showy facilities trump actual therapies at resort spas. That is not true in this case. The services are first-rate."

That's a powerful endorsement, but here's the best part:

If you book this package you'll get a 20% discount on these incredible Kohler Waters Spa services.

Dining Here is More Like "An Immersive Culinary Experience"

Yes, Kohler is home to an amazing slate of golf courses.

But did you know that its roster of nine restaurants is equally impressive?

That's right - whereas some resorts clearly focus on the golf and don't seem to really care about serving awesome, memorable food, Destination Kohler does it all: golf, dining and other activities (more on those in a minute).

After all, if you're out to have an awesome vacation - be it with your golf buddies, your significant other or your family - why not have all of it be incredible?

That's the philosophy at Destination Kohler.

Their flagship eatery is The Immigrant Restaurant, which boasts both a AAA Four Diamond rating and a Four-Star distinction from Forbes.

The Immigrant Restaurant

Quite simply, it is one of the very best restaurants in the American Midwest. And to boot, its six rooms each pay homage to Wisconsin's early settlers: French, Dutch, German, Norman, Danish and English.

On the more casual side of things is The Horse & Plow, a historic tavern where early Kohler Co. workers would gather to unwind after the day's labors. It is now an ideal place to grab a local craft beer - visitors particularly love the New Glarus Spotted Cow - and a burger or a helping of local bratwursts and ale-baked macaroni & cheese.

The favorite single food item on the entire property, however, is found at the Blackwolf Run Clubhouse. It is their sublime corn sausage chowder, whose recipe is so closely-guarded, it is only available at this one spot at the resort. It is said that only a couple people know the recipe.

Dessert lovers should not miss the splendid Craverie Chocolatier Cafe, a pilgrimage site for those with a sweet tooth. The range of desserts - from petits-fours to pastries to ice cream to chocolate fondue - is mind-blowing. In addition, it's a great breakfast and lunch spot, which means that you can descend into decadence as early in the day as you want to.

It's easy to go on and on about these and the rest of Destination Kohler's culinary scene, but you should uncover some of its surprises for yourself. And if you're a hardcore foodie, be sure to visit during the Kohler Food and Wine Experience, held every October.

Beyond Golf at Destination Kohler

Yes, Destination Kohler happens to be one of the world's best golf resorts. But golf is far from the only recreational activity on offer at the resort, which is why it is an absolutely perfect place for couples and families, as well as golf buddy groups.

trap shooting

Outdoor activities include pond-, river- and Lake Michigan-based fishing expeditions, trap and sport-clay shooting, archery, hiking, horseback riding and tours of The American Club's splendid gardens.

Families can enjoy tennis, arts and crafts, carriage rides and even bocce and croquet, among other fun activities. Bottom line: there is no shortage of fun to be had off the golf course at Destination Kohler.

One absolutely essential activity that every visitor should take in is a visit to the world-famous Kohler Design Center. This admission-free experience really lends a sense of history and context that few other distinguished resorts can claim. After all, your vacation at Destination Kohler is made possible by the success of a true American original. You will love learning about what makes that family-owned business entity so special.
