2015 PGA Championship attendance
expected to top 200,000 and generate
$100 million for the region
PGA charitable impact

The large turnout just for the
first day of practice rounds at the
2015 PGA Championship at
Whistling Straits was a confirmation of what is being billed as the
highest-grossing PGA Championship in the event’s 97-year history (based on general ticketing
and corporate sales). By August 9,
the PGA of America and Kohler
Co. announced a sell-out of daily
grounds tickets for Saturday and
Sunday Championship round play.
Attendance for the seven-day
event was expected to top 200,000.
“The excitement we’ve seen for
this Championship has been remarkable at every level,” said
Jason Mengel, Director of the
2015 PGA Championship. “From

the state of Wisconsin and regionally throughout the Midwest, to nationally across the U.S. and
globally around the world.”
The 2015 PGA Championship is
expected to have a $100 million
economic impact on the region
(based on statistics from other host
sites in the recent past). Locally
and regionally, 1,100 full-time and
part-time jobs were created because of the event.
According to GOLF 20/20, the
state of Wisconsin and the upper
Midwest has the highest percentage of golfers in the United States.
In Wisconsin, golf generates an annual economic impact of $2.4 billion, creating 38,000 golf-related
jobs. In 2014, Golf Digest ranked

PGA media center

Wisconsin at number five in their
list of ten best golf states. The
“Badger State” boasts 60 golf resorts and more than 500 courses.
Designed by the legendary Pete
Dye, Whistling Straits ranks
among the top of “America’s 100
Greatest Public Golf Courses” by
Golf Digest.
Coverage of the 2015 PGA
Championship at Whistling Straits
was expected to reach more than
500 million households, via 44 international broadcast partners.
Drone cameras swept over
Whistling Straits for the first time
at a PGA Championship, and
AT&T and Verizon Wireless rolled
in mobile cell towers to boost cell
phone capacity.

KOHLER, Wis. – The PGA of
America and Kohler Co. joined
Wisconsin state officials and community leaders at a Government
Relations Breakfast on August 11
at Whistling Straits to discuss the
significant and lasting contribution
golf and the 2015 PGA Championship have made in Wisconsin.
As part of its community outreach, the 2015 PGA Championship has donated nearly 1,000
tickets, additional merchandise,
VIP Championship experiences,
and autographed memorabilia to
the local community.
Additionally, PGA REACH –
the PGA of America’s charitable
foundation – is working to leave a
positive and lasting impact in Wisconsin. Earlier this summer, the
2015 National Car Rental PGA
REACH Charity Pro-Am held at
Whistling Straits raised more than
$125,000, with all proceeds benefitting four Southeast Wisconsin
organizations – Bookworm Gardens, PGA HOPE (Helping Our
Patriots Everywhere) with the Wisconsin PGA Foundation, the Caddie and Leadership Academy, golf
programs in Sheboygan County
Schools, and PGA Junior League
Golf.
“Whether it’s boosting local
economies, supporting tourism or
just enjoying the natural treasures
Wisconsin has to offer – the game
of golf has a rich history here in

our state,” said Sen. Tammy Baldwin. “I am particularly proud of the
fact that the PGA Championship is
especially welcoming to our military veterans and families.”
At Bookworm Gardens in Sheboygan, funds from the PGA ProAm will be used to create an
“animal gateway” section, scheduled to open this month. Bookworm Gardens melds nature with
children’s literature and features
two acres of garden space artfully
designed to mimic and complement children’s literature.
On August 12, the PGA of
America Spouses and PGA TOUR
Wives Association joined forces
for the third consecutive year to
leave a lasting legacy in the PGA
Championship host community,
lending their time at Bookworm
Gardens to promote youth literacy
and education.
“The great state of Wisconsin is
excited to host the PGA Championship, one of the most exciting
and fan-friendly majors,” said Sen.
Ron Johnson. “This event is a boon
for Wisconsin’s economy, jobs,
travel, and tourism. Thank you to
the PGA of America for selecting
Whistling Straits for the Championship and to Herb Kohler for having the vision to build one of the
world’s great golf courses.”

Alumni

Where are they now?
Kelly (Jensen) Kasten
Grand Rapids, MI
Year graduated from Kohler
High School: 1993
Post-high school education: St
Norbert College: Education (non
complete) George Williams College: Business Leadership/Hospitality
Degrees: Just need to finish that
one random science class that
never transferred.
Occupation: Corporate Properties
Manager/Estate Manager: Private
Service (16 years in private service/hospitality)
Fondest memories growing up in
Kohler: Too many “fondest memories” to count. Wonderful to grow
up in a huge playground. Closeness of friends, accessibility to
everything. Kohler Pool, The
Bowl, walking to and from school,
Sports Core, Youth Center, the
Trestle, kick the can, SGLO. When
I look at my group of friends from
Kohler, I always say that if we met
today, we would probably NEVER
be friends. The thing with a small
class, small town is that friend resources are limited, so you work
with what you have...and these
people become like family to you.
Different, but sharing so much in
common. The close knit community is really something magical.
Summers spent at the Kohler Pool,
as a youth and then working....the
pool will always be my number
one. Running around town with no
plans or agenda, making our own
fun. Friends, friends, friends.
Many details that I cannot share!

tending Kohler Schools. First, it is
the friends and activities and
sports, and music classes. How
fortunate we were to have programs that everyone could participate in. All of these things built
skills like team work, confidence,
and accountability. Things that I
really treasure having learned. My
education doesn’t seem as significant, but certainly I came out prepared enough to succeed when I
chose to. Interestingly, Home Economics and Family Living classes
probably had the greatest impact
on my career. I can vividly remember the cooking classes and competitions. I remember making
manicotti in seventh grade and I
went home and made that meal for
my family. We decorated fancy
cakes, planned menus and shopped
for items. Today I manage chefs
and menus and events, and magnificent estates. I work in situations with kids and families and
high profile guests...and really, it
all started with that manicotti
dish.....or was it the bran muffins?
I also have found myself in a jam
more than once where I was thankful I could whip up an impromptu
cake at work and decorate it like a
pro.

What was most memorable
about attending Kohler Schools,
and how did the education at
KHS help this grad attain their
goals?
So much is memorable about at-

Kohler students participate in
National History Day
National History Day is an opportunity for students in grades 612 to research in depth a historical
topic, person, or event; create a
thesis, and defend it by creating a
project. The five categories in
which they can create their project
is a performance, an exhibit, a
documentary, a website, or writing
a paper. NHD is an empowering

program which allows students to
really delve into their passions and
interests in history.
Kohler Middle School earned
three spots in the National Competition which was held in Maryland/Washington D.C. from June
14-18 this summer.
Eighth grade student, Kate
O’Leary, competed in the individ-

ual performance category with her
project called “Elizabeth Blackwell: Changing the Face of the
Medical Field.” Nicole Koenecke
and Hannah Neist, also eighth
grade students, competed in the
group exhibit category with their
project called “Mahatma Gandhi:
The Person, The Hero, The Legend.” Eighth grade students Grace

Unger and Cecelia Zielke competed with their group exhibit titled “William Lloyd Garrison: The
Leadership and Legacy of an
American Abolitionist.”
Congratulations to all five students who gave their personal
bests at the National History Day
competition.
Monica Salata-LaBudde, Matt

Bayens,
and
Stacy
Rozmarynowski are the students’ social studies teachers and advisors
for National History Day and they
have seen the many academic and
social rewards this program has
brought about in the last nine
years in which they have participated.

PGA of America Spouses, PGA TOUR Wives
Association, PGA REACH And Kohler Co. dig in
for a great cause at Bookworm Gardens
Charitable groups come together to garden, as the 2015 PGA Championship
makes a positive impact in the local Wisconsin community
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (Aug. 12,
2015) - In celebration of the 2015
PGA Championship, the PGA of
America Spouses and PGA TOUR
Wives Association joined forces
today with PGA REACH and the
Kohler Co. at Bookworm Gardens
– a local garden space that promotes youth literacy and learning
– to garden for a great cause.
Bookworm Gardens is divided
into six areas – called Gateways –
that are organized by theme. During the event, Nina Kohler, wife of
David Kohler, General Chair of
the 2015 PGA Championship and
Kohler Co. President & CEO, led
the participating organizations in
building a garden space that tells
the story of “Connor the Caddie,”
a new, limited-edition children's
book written by local author Ulrich Koberstein and illustrated by
his wife, Christina Koberstein. The
children’s book is available at
Bookworm Gardens, The Emporium at The American Club and
Wisconsin Trader at the Shops at
Woodlake Kohler.
The participating organizations
were guided by Jennifer Sprague
of the PGA of America Spouses
and Kate Rose of the PGA TOUR
Wives Association. This is the
third year these groups have lent
their time to positively impact a
PGA Championship host site. In
2013, the organizations constructed a Habitat for Humanity
home for a deserving family in
Rochester, N.Y. Last year, the
wives partnered with Blessings in
a Backpack to plant gardens that
would be utilized in the program,
feeding underserved schoolchild-

ren in Louisville, Ky.
“Through the combined efforts
of the PGA of America Spouses,
PGA TOUR Wives Association,
Kohler Co. and PGA REACH, we
are so pleased that the 2015 PGA
Championship will leave a positive legacy in our host community," said PGA President Derek
Sprague. "The PGA of America is
thrilled to be a part of this special
event, which will impact the lives
of children for years to come.”
Funds raised by PGA REACH,
the charitable foundation of the
PGA of America, during the 2015
National Car Rental PGA REACH
Charity Pro-Am, which was held
in June at Whistling Straits, aided
in supporting this year's collabora-

tive project. Additional proceeds
from the charitable golf event benefited four Southeast Wisconsin
organizations – Bookworm Gardens, PGA HOPE with the Wisconsin PGA Foundation, the
Caddie and Leadership Academy,
golf programs in Sheboygan
County Schools and PGA Junior
League Golf. In the book, one of
the famed Scottish blackface sheep
that roams Whistling Straits-young
Connor-dreams of becoming a
caddie in the 2015 PGA Championship.
The 18-scene book is cleverly
structured to mimic the 18 holes
found on a golf course and is full
of colorful artwork depicting Connor's adventures. In addition, a

replica Whistling Straits Clubhouse was constructed to complement the garden.
“Our intention was to commemorate the positive impact the PGA
Championship has brought to our
community, to honor the artistry of
my father-in-law, Herb Kohler and
his dear friend Pete Dye, and to
create a wonderful learning space
for the children and families of
Sheboygan County,” said Nina
Kohler. “It has been an honor and
a pleasure to work with the talented and passionate people involved with this project, from the
designers and craftsmen to the
PGA TOUR Wives, the PGA of
America Spouses and PGA
REACH. Our hope is that this

space will serve in bringing joy to
those who visit it and introduce
children of all ages to the wonderful game of golf.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering
with the PGA of America Spouses,
PGA TOUR Wives Association,
Kohler Co. and PGA REACH,”
said Elizabeth Wieland, Executive
Director of Bookworm Gardens.
“Bookworm Gardens is a place
where children can see books
come to life and embrace the
magic of reading, and the support
of these organizations means our
gardens will continue to grow and
inspire young minds.”

Announcing a limited edition golf-themed children’s
book in timing with the 2015 PGA Championship
(August 10-16)
“Connor
the
Caddie”
(www.ConnortheCaddie.com) is
sure to delight dreamers
and golfers and those who
are both with a whimsical
story of a Scottish Blackface Sheep named Connor
who yearns to be a caddie.
Written by parents Ulrich Koberstein and colorfully illustrated by self-taught
artist Christina Koberstein of
Kohler, Wis., “Connor the Caddie”
is now available as a limited edition 9”x13” inch hardcover book.
The perfect size to fit in a golf bag!
The settings of the tale span
from Whistling Straits in Kohler,
Wis. to the O’Hare Airport in
Chicago to the home of golf St.
Andrews, Scotland. The book fea-

tures 18 scenes noted by a numbered pin flag page marker that
concludes with Connor returning to Whistling Straits
to realize his dream to caddie at the 2015 PGA
Championship.
A true labor of love, the
book stems from a late
night request from the couple’s 6-year-old son for an original
bedtime story. By writing this
book Ulrich also discovered that
storytelling runs in his family as he
remembers the imaginative tales
his grandfather once told him.
The story comes alive at Bookworm Gardens in Sheboygan,
Wis., where visitors to this vibrant,
playful garden based on children's
literature, can enjoy the newly un-

veiled “Connor the Caddie” exhibit featuring a miniature
Whistling Straits Clubhouse and a
cast iron Connor created at the
Kohler Co. factory. Complimentary admission.

Partners of this inspiring book
including PGA REACH, PGA
Tour Wives Association and The
PGA of America.
The book is currently available
for purchase at Bookworm Gar-

dens and at the Destination Kohler
resort at both The Emporium Gift
Shop at The American Club and at
the Wisconsin Trader located at
The Shops at Woodlake Kohler.

an event in partnership with the

high bluff overlooking
the
winding Sheboygan River,
The Waelderhaus stands as a
tribute to the
tradition of the
Bregenzerwald
(“forest of Bregenz”) Province of
Vorarlberg, Austria. The Waelderhaus (“a house in the woods”) is a
tribute to the architecture peculiar
to this Alpine area and stands as a
museum of minute detail in the
perfect marriage of artistry and superb craftsmanship. The Waelderhaus is managed by Kohler
Foundation, Inc. and is open daily
(except holidays) to the public for
guided tours, free of charge.

Sports Core announces renovation
progress
In April, Sports Core Health and
Racquet Club initiated the first
phase of the largest renovation undertaking in its 36-year history – a
complete makeover of the changing rooms, showers, restrooms and
steam rooms in its lower level. As
of July 10, and nine days ahead of
schedule, the renovation of the
Men’s area was completed. Sports
Core allowed members to tour the
space which featured photos from
before construction began and key
features and benefits were highlighted. Among the improvements,
a more spacious changing space,
increased locker count, new
shower experiences, an upgraded
steam room and aesthetic improvements throughout the space.

Newly renovated men’s locker room at Sports Core

Phase II of the project began
with demolition of the Ladies’
changing and shower area on

Monday, July 13. This phase of the
renovation is scheduled to take less
time than the first, as planned dem-

olition is not as robust as the Men’s
space. The team overseeing the
project anticipates construction of
Phase II will go just as smoothly as
Phase I and is optimistic all Sports
Core members will return to their
designated spaces by fall as scheduled. At that time, the third and
final phase will begin as the pool
walkway, tennis court hallway and
other common areas are updated.
To see before and after photos,
stay up to date on progress of the
project, or be aware of offerings
and happenings throughout the
year, you can follow Sports Core
on Instagram or Facebook.
