Host of the 2020 Ryder Cup, the ruggedly beautiful Whistling Straits golf course overlooking Lake Michigan is a must for duffers. After lunching at the clubhouse on the 18th green, where we enjoyed pints of New Glarus Spotted Cow, Jen and I paired up with a father-and-son duo from Madison to try our luck on the links. e challenging round took us nearly five hours to complete (and probably would have been longer without the guidance we received from our cool caddy), but I was pleased with what I shot, despite the balls that wafted away on the brisk lake breeze. By the end of 18 holes, we were more than primed for a private tasting of cocktails crafted with the company's exclusive Kohler Original Recipe Chocolate Brandy. Luxurious and warming, it was the perfect way to unwind after an energetic afternoon on the links. It was hard to imagine a better meal than the one we enjoyed in the Wisconsin Room, but dinner at the Immigrant raised the already elevated bar to even loftier heights. Rich in character and historic elegance, this award-winning restaurant is arranged in a series of six rooms paying homage to the homelands of early Wisconsin settlers — French, Dutch, German, Norman, Danish and English. Rated Four Diamonds by AAA, the Immigrant's seven-course tasting menu introduced one surprise after another, from caviar-topped deviled eggs to rabbit-stuffed quail to olive oil-poached tuna cheeks and A-5 Wagyu beef, all stunningly presented and perfectly prepared. With a couple of selections from the lengthy and well-curated wine list, this was a meal to remember, and will rank toward the top of our dining experiences for a long while. Wisconsin is a wonderful state, full of many hidden treasures. As we drove from Indianapolis to the American Club in Kohler, I must confess I had no idea what to expect. To say our stay far exceeded any expectations of luxury, quality and pampering would be an understatement. Next time we visit, I'll make sure to have brushed up on my chip shots and horsemanship. sl For more information about stays at the American Club, call 855.444.2838 or visit americanclubresort.com. slmag.net 107
