Enjoy watching some of the world’s best golfers starting next Thursday at the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in beautiful Kohler, Wisconsin. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at The American Club Resort last month. This destination has so much to offer including incredible golf, spa, outdoor activities including hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, trap shooting, archery and more. At the spa for women, don’t miss the two new spa treatments Bamboo Bliss and Magnificent Wrap. For men, the Rain Man and Woodsmen Massage. The American Club has outstanding restaurants with inventive food. Be sure to enjoy dinner at the Immigrant room (more upscale) and Horse & Plow (more casual) as well as Sunday brunch at the Wisconsin Room. Try this Championship Martini recipe to toast this amazing tournament. This cocktail recipe combines the refreshing flavors of pineapple and cranberry, making it the perfect summer cocktail. The cocktail is available at the Whistling Straits Clubhouse Restaurant and Pub for $13 leading up to and following the much anticipated tournament.
Also, for the foodies out there, The Kohler Food & Wine Experience is set to delight thousands of culinary enthusiasts and wine devotees at Destination Kohler on October 22-25, 2015. Tickets are available starting today for the four-day festival and are online and by phone at 866-243-8548. Now in its 15th year, the event has a celebrated history of showcasing notable chefs and renowned winemakers hosting interactive demonstrations, fascinating seminars, exclusive tastings, celebrity dinners and evening galas.
