As a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, The American Club offers up more top-of-the-line amenities than you’ll likely have time to schedule. The five best:
1. World-class golf. Both The American Club’s renowned Whistling Straits Golf Course, which hosted the 2010 PGA Tournament, and its Blackwolf Run course attract serious golfers to their beautiful Wisconsin settings. Whistling Straits, an Alice and Pete Dye-designed course, features the grass-and-dune Irish course, as well as the Straits, which hugs Lake Michigan from a bluff in the style of the historic Scottish and Irish links. Blackwolf Run, also designed by Pete Dye, is located in a lush river basin and surrounded by forestry.
2. Kohler Waters Spa. Wisconsin’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa, Kohler Waters Spa attracts spa-goers year-round with its signature Kohler water treatments as well as its inviting mosaic-tiled swimming pool and whirlpools and glass-enclosed rooftop lounge.
3. The Immigrant Restaurant. Chef Matthew Bauer prepares mouthwatering seasonal dishes made with locally sourced artisanal ingredients at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant. The wine list is also impressive, featuring a number of hard-to-find favorites.
4. Sports Core. Every guest at The American Club has free access to the Kohler resort’s health club — and this is no run of the mill gym. Sports Core includes a man-made beach, an outdoor whirlpool alongside a fireplace, a pool for doing laps, family pool, tennis and racquetball courts, and workout equipment in the fitness center.
5. Meeting spaces. Dozens of meeting spaces are available throughout the resort — at Sports Core, Whistling Straits Golf Course, Blackwolf Run and Inn on Woodlake — offering business travelers easy access to amenities like golf courses, pools, fishing spots and the spa. Bottom line: You don’t have to sit inside a frigid air-conditioned room all day.
