Best range promotion: We offered Kohler Co employees (Kohler Company owns Whistling Straits) the opportunity to purchase season long range passes at a discounted price. The normal fee is $300 for the season but Kohler Co. associates only pay $200. This adds value to their employment while driving additional revenue to our facility.

Special programs: We host several community programs including junior, high school, and college golf, much of which is provided complimentary. We also hold women’s clinics and First Tee events throughout the year.
