Mother Nature delivers for Winterfest
By Mary Struck Just a week before Kohler’s Winterfest January 25-27, there was barely any snowcover and Wood Lake was mostly standing water. But Mother Nature stepped up to the plate just in time bringing a couple days of frigid temperatures followed by a slight warmup and gentle snowfall. Locals and visitors at Winterfest were treated to dog sled demonstrations and rides for the kids, ice skating demonstrations, ice golfing and bowling, snow sculptures, specials at the Shops at Woodlake, and more.

Kohler Co. championship golf courses honored in Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses
Kohler Co. is proud to announce Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run Championship courses have been featured in Golf Digest 100 Greatest Rankings, with the Straits course at Whistling Straits leading the way, ranking #2 in 100 Greatest Public Golf courses. Both are part of the Kohler Co.-owned, Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond The American Club resort. One of only 36 worldwide with these designations, the hotel offers unparalleled golfing and hospitality experiences. “We are pleased and honored that all four of our courses continue to rank within the top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. To be praised amongst the best in America is a true reflection of the first-class experience we offer golfers,” said Jim Richerson, General Manager and Group Director of Golf. “With the 2015 PGA Championship and 2020 Ryder Cup on the near horizon, we look forward to continuing Kohler Co.’s legacy of Championship golf for years to come.” All fours courses are included in the 100 Greatest Public Golf courses. - Whistling Straits (Straits) #2 - Blackwolf Run (River) #14 - Whistling Straits (Irish) #39 - Blackwolf Run (Meadow Valleys) #62 Furthermore, the Straits and River courses both moved up positions in America’s 100 Greatest Golf courses, ranking #16 and #63, respectively. In addition, all four courses ranked highly in the Best in State with the Straits #1, River #4, Irish #5 and Meadow Valleys #6. Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run have collectively hosted the 1998 and 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, 2004 and 2010 PGA Championships and 2007 U.S. Senior Open. Established in 1966, America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses is the game’s oldest ranking. The Straits course at Whistling Straits has been ranked on America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses for 14 years. The River course at Blackwolf Run has been ranked for 22 years and according to Golf Digest, “possesses some of (Pete) Dye’s most exciting holes.” In order to construct the prominent list, an expert group of panelists play and score courses on seven criteria including: shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning and ambience. To arrive at a course’s final score, its averages are totaled in the seven categories, double-weighting shot values. A course needs 45 evaluations over the past eight years to be eligible for America’s 100 Greatest, and minimum 25 ballots for 100 Greatest Public Courses.

Reprinted with permission from the Capsule, a newsletter published for Kohler Co. associates. When Kohler High School students in Mr. DeBruin’s technology and engineering courses attend a Sheboygan A’s game this summer, they will probably be more interested in tailgating than RBIs. That’s because they, along with students from other Sheboygan County schools, will unveil their custom-made grill at what is being billed as the largest tailgate party in Sheboygan County. As part of Project GRILL, school teams paired with manufacturers are designing and building customized grills. GRILL (Growing Readiness in Learning & Leading) exposes students, teachers and parents to diverse manufacturing career opportunities in the county, perhaps cultivating a future workforce of homegrown talent. For this year’s
project, the Kohler Machine Design/Build team is mentoring the Kohler Engineering Club for the first time. The club’s nine-person design team visited the company in January to meet with the mentors and tour the engineering, maintenance and Machine Design/Build departments. The students’ ultimate objective is to create a marketable grill to sell as a fundraiser for their club. “The program is a great way to get kids interested in engineering and to get them exposed to and involved in all the different aspects of it,” said Luke Hanson, Millwright, adding that those skills include fabrication, skilled trades, project management, accounting and business. Hanson is teamed with Nick Eichmann, Supervisor – Central Maintenance Design/Build, to mentor the students. Bob Wells,
General Supervisor – Central Maintenance, is overseeing the project. Team members Tim Valicenti and Kyle Struck, both seniors, are interested in studying engineering in college. “This program has allowed me to get hands-on exposure to engineering, and it’s also given me a little more confidence in knowing that engineering is definitely something I want to pursue,” said Valicenti. Struck added, “The best part is being able to directly apply things we are learning in other classes, like math.” The learning goes both ways, according to Eichmann, who said, “The whole mentorship program helps the kids, but at the same time allows us to better understand our own processes.”

Kung Fu, contortionism, juggling, spinning plates and dynamic acrobatics—The New Shanghai Circus brings something for everyone. In a return visit to Kohler, this = award-winning Chinese acrobatic troupe offers breathtaking stunts and visually stunning feats. Founded in 1951, The New Shanghai Circus has spent six decades perfecting their skills, which reflect the resourcefulness and courage of the Chinese people. Modern Chinese acrobats model their act after the ancient harvest celebrations of their ancestors more than 2,000 years ago, when peasant acrobats would use common items found around the farm and home as part of their exciting performances. Audiences were delighted by the athleticism and acrobatic skill displayed by The New Shanghai Circus when the troupe first performed in Kohler in 2005. This spring, those who missed the spectacle the first time as well as those want to experience the thrill all over again, can plan to attend their March 8 show at Kohler Me= morial Theatre (260 School St., = Kohler, Wis.). In addition to the public performance, the circus = will perform a free educational = = show for Sheboygan County students that afternoon. Tickets to The New Shanghai Circus are $35/$25 for adults and $18/$13 for students, and may be ordered online at kohlerfoundation.org/tickets or by calling the Kohler Foundation at (920) 4581972. Group discounts are available. The New Shanghai Circus’ appearance is part of the Kohler Foundation’s Distinguished Guest Series. Now in its 69th season, the Distinguished Guest Series maintains the rich local heritage in the arts by bringing world-class performances—live music, poetry readings, lectures and dramatic theater—to the Kohler Memorial Theatre. This year’s artfully crafted series presents a dynamic collection of exciting, world-class performances. The season wraps up on April = 27 with five-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist and songwriter, Michael McDonald. Mc= Donald began his career as a backup singer for Steely Dan. As a member of The Doobie Brothers from 1976 to 1982, he recorded hit songs like “Real Love” and “Little Darling.” In 1980, “What a Fool Believes” earned him a Grammy Award for Song of the Year along with co-writer Kenny Loggins. This will be a must-see performance. All shows are performed at the Kohler Memorial Theatre, 260 School St., Kohler, Wisconsin.

Kohler Co. Global Hospitality Group awarded with prominent world ranking
Kohler Co. is proud to announce both resorts in its Global Hospitality & Real Estate portfolio – The American Club resort in Kohler and Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews, Scotland – earned the prestigious Travel + Leisure 500 World’s Best Hotels. Both leading resorts have been listed in this leading reader’s survey, along with other top-level luxurious resorts throughout the United States and Europe. “For both of our Five-Star resorts to be highly praised amongst the best hotels in the world is not only an honor but is also a true reflection of the incredible hard work and dedication from our associates who each day passionately extend attentive Five-Star service to all of our guests,” said Debbie Taylor, Kohler Hospitality & Real Estate Group President. From safari lodges to snowy skiin, ski-out hotels, 2013 winners are a mix of remote escapes and city hotels. Travel + Leisure hails The American Club resort as the “Midwest’s most deluxe resort and spa.” The magazine advises readers to get to know more about Kohler Company’s rich history and take a complimentary factory tour, located directly across the street from the hotel, where KOHLER plumbing products continue to be made. The "contemporary resort" on St Andrews West Sands impressed readers with its VIP Five-Star standards and award winning Kohler Waters Spa. The magazine's 'Insider Tip' highlights one of the resort’s most unique assets – The Jigger Inn. Golf's most famous 19th hole is cited for its 'fish and chips' which can be enjoyed by guests overlooking the best par four in the world – the Road Hole on St Andrews Old Course. Kohler Co., most notable for its artistic and innovative kitchen and plumbing products, has a rich history of creating high-end products and experiences. Since forming the Hospitality & Real Estate Group in 1981, Kohler Co. has continued the tradition of offering the most luxurious and personalized experiences at both Kohler owned properties in Wisconsin and St Andrews. Both properties, known for their high-level customer service and impeccable attention to detail, are recognized internationally for their Championship golf courses. The American Club Resort is home to public courses Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run, which have collectively hosted the 1998 and 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, 2004 and 2010 PGA Championships, 2007 U.S. Senior Open and future home to the 2015 PGA Championship and 2020 Ryder Cup. The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa overlooks the world’s most famous golf course, and also as offers golf at the only healthland course in the area – The Duke’s. The resort has served as host hotel of The 2010 Open Championship and the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Both resorts also offer unparalleled experiences at Kohler Waters Spa, highly acclaimed for its innovative water-based therapies and services. Each year, thousands of passionate Travel + Leisure readers vote on the hotels they love the most to provide a definitive list of the world's top 500 hotel destinations, judging each on a wide range of criteria including rooms, location, service, food and value. The American Club resort is listed as the only hotel in the Wisconsin category, with a score of 88.23 out of a possible 100 points for 2013. The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is listed as the only hotel in the Scotland category, with a score of 87.52 out of a possible 100 points for 2013.

Kohler High’s MAD Club to host technology drive on February 12
Submitted by Andrew Grose Kohler High School’s Making a Difference (MAD) club will host a technology drive in the school’s event lobby from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12. Items that may be donated for recycling include: • cell phones • laptops/tablets/e-readers • ink jet cartridges • iPods • digital/video cameras • GPS devices Items may be in working or nonworking condition, and chargers do not need to be included. Items larger than laptops will not be accepted. The Kohler boys’ basketball team will be hosting Oostburg on the night of the drive. Students who bring an item will receive free admission to the basketball game; adults will receive half-price admission. The goals of MAD are to discuss world issues and to volunteer in the community in an effort to “think globally and act locally.” Discussion topics from the 2012-13 school year have included agricultural practices, composting, the effect of plastic water bottles on the environment, and the global impact of sweatshops. In November, MAD members took a field trip to Growing Power, an urban agriculture center in Milwaukee, in order to learn more about how people can practice “sustainable agriculture.” In addition to the discussion and enrichment that are exclusive to MAD, the club’s members have volunteered in many of the Key Club-sponsored events at Kohler High School. These include a school-wide ice cream fundraiser last September and the KSF Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair in November.

The Kohler Foundation has announced the winners of the 16th annual Gingerbread Festival competition.

During the month of December, gingerbread creations of all sizes and shapes were displayed at the historic Waelderhaus in Kohler and more than 6,500 visitors voted for their favorite designs. Entries are made in the manner of traditional gingerbread houses, requiring that all parts be edible. Candies, frosting, cookies, cereal, gum and sweets of all kinds were used to create mouth-watering gingerbread fantasies. This year’s entries included a Gingerbread Cupcake Inn; a European castle; an Arctic landscape; the White House; the Titanic; scenes from the stories of Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet and the Wizard of Oz; Finding Nemo’s underwater dwelling; The Dome House; the old woman who lived in the shoe, and many other imaginative gingerbread scenes decorated for the holidays.
