Whistling Straits Location
Whistling Straits is located just a 15 minute drive from the tourist hotspot of Kohler where there is plenty to do away from the course. In addition to this, the town is on the banks of the beautiful Lake Michigan and with temperatures topping 70°F (22°C) September it is a wonderful spot to soak up some sunshine.

With Milwaukee airport just an hour away transport time is kept to a minimal and this is the same for the hotels we offer too.

2020 Ryder Cup Guide and Whistling Straits

Whistling Straits is located in the heart of the world famous North American Kohler Resort, Wisconsin. The nearest major city to the course is Milwaukee which is renowned for its role in the world’s beer industry and is home to a number of fantastic breweries. There are also a number of incredible restaurants that showcase the very best of American cuisine and are a great place to enjoy your evening after a great day at the golf.

The 43rd Ryder Cup will not be one to miss for any golf fan as Europe look to right the wrongs from their last trip across the pond when they lost 17-11 at Hazeltine in 2016.

A trip stateside to the game’s biggest team event is on every golfer’s bucket list and in 2020 Kohler and Whistling Straits have everything you could want to have the trip of a lifetime. The region lives and breathes golf with the Straits Course having played host to no fewer than 3 PGA Championships, 2 US Women’s Opens, US Senior Open and of course now the Ryder Cup.

With a number of America’s best golf courses in such close proximity, golfers are advised to take their clubs with them as your Ryder Cup adventure can include some fantastic memories outside of the actual event as well.

The Straits Course

The Straits Course is at the forefront of golf at Destination Kohler and is one of the most iconic courses in America. Having been designed by one of the greatest modern day architects, it comes as no surprise that it is not only one of the most aesthetically pleasing courses in the world but also one of the best golfing layouts. Pete Dye is renowned for carving glorious golf courses out of incredible natural landscapes with his Teeth of the Dog course at Casa De Campo being just another feather in his cap.

The rugged and exposed nature of the banks of Lake Michigan give the course a distinctive links accents. With long wispy rough and vast areas of sandy wasteland the course is reminiscent of some of the UK’s best links tracks such as St Andrews and Royal Portrush.

Similar to its Scottish and Irish counterparts, the Straits Course has an illustrious history of hosting a number of major golf tournaments. Most recently, the world’s best battled it out for the 2015 US PGA Championship which saw Australian Jason Day eventually reign victorious having held off current world number Dustin Johnson. Day’s maiden major victory was emphastic to say the least as he set a 72 hole record for a major championship with a winning score of 20 under par.

Many view the Straits Course as one of the finest in America with its undulating fairways, abundance of water and punishing rough. The pros will need to be on the game in order to get the all important point out of their match.
