More on Our Kohler Experience

After having our Breakfast delivered to the room, we were off to start the day with “Yoga on the Lake”.  Floor to ceiling windows revealed a gorgeous view of the Bay, allowing nature to enhance the experience.  After, we treated ourselves to a little shopping at The Yoga Shop.

We then headed to The Club House, shown above of The Straights Golf Course, which is the flag ship course at Whistling Straights.  The course borrows from the ancient seaside links courses of the United Kingdom and Ireland.  It features 3 km. of shoreline on Lake Michigan, with three stone bridges.  The course is now home to the PGA Championship, U.S. Senior Open and the Ryder Cup.

The day was slightly over cast, so we opted for 9 holes!  We then headed to meet some friends at the Horse and Plow for some savory Wisconsin Cheese.

And then back to our room to end the day. How can one plan to leave such a room, when you arrive to such a beautiful setting!  Our room at The American Club, shown above was a true “home away from home” experience.  Gracious turn down service paired with a robe and slippers offered a perfect way to end the day.

Golfing in Muskoka

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting a friends cottage in Muskoka.  While there we golfed at Taboo, which is shown above.  The sun was shining and the wind was gentle, a perfect day.  “The harder you work, the luckier you get” – Gary Player.

The following day we headed to the Muskoka Bay Club.  I must say, this is the most gorgeous course that I have ever experienced.  Before leaving we had lunch at the Cliffside Grill.  I will be returning here sooner than later, imagine how stunning it will be in the Fall!
