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.

Cucina • The American Club Experience

The Italian Restaurant, Cucina was a delightful part of my recent American Club experience.  Incredible food and wine pairings along with impeccable service!  From the Raw Bar – the oysters were sweet and plump. Then onto the Sushi Grade BigEye Tuna, which left little room for dessert, but how could I resist the Chocolate Diplomatico Torta with Raspberry and Chocolate sauce?  Simply delicious!

The American Club Resort Hotel in Kohler, Wisconsin

Upon arrival at The American Club we were greeted with graceful hospitality and delighted to see that the grounds were in full bloom.  We found ourselves surrounded by glorious colour and a magnificent fragrance in the air.

The American Club is a place where charm meets old-world elegance.  It once provided housing, meals, as well as recreational facilities for immigrant employees who could not afford housing.  Today the luxurious decor creates a singular experience room by room.

The History of KOHLER

The Kohler Headquarters, shown above is located in Kohler, Wisconsin.  The company was founded in 1873 by Austrian immigrant John Michael Kohler. Early products included cast iron and steel farm implements, castings for furniture factories, and ornamental iron pieces. In 1883, enamel was applied to cast iron to create the companies first bathtub. – Wiki

KOHLER products are recognized for both beautiful form and reliable function.

In 1888, Kohler trademarked the “Bubbler”. Other companies then began to follow the lead by developing similar products under the generic name “drinking fountain”.  Today the Bubbler continues to be part of Wisconsin’s vernacular.
