Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run
Included in GOLF Magazine’s Top
Courses in the World Rankings
GOLF Magazine recently released its biennial Top 100
Courses in the World Rankings,
naming both the Straits course at
Whistling Straits (#27) and the
River course at Blackwolf Run
(#94) in the Top 100 Courses in
the U.S. Additionally, the Straits
course was named #52 in the Top
100 Courses in the World. Both
courses are part of Kohler Co.’s
Destination Kohler, the Forbes
Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond
resort-hotel in Kohler, Wisconsin.
One of only 48 worldwide with
these designations, the destination
offers unparalleled golfing and
hospitality experiences.
The highly respected World
Rankings are determined by a
group of international panel members who include major-championship
winners,
architects,
journalists and group of connoisseurs who have played all of the
world’s top 100 courses.
“It’s a great honor to have both
Whistling Straits and Blackwolf
Run included in this prestigious
world ranking,” said Jim Richer-

son, General Manager and Group
Director for Kohler Golf. “We are
always proud of our rankings, but
this one in particular is special,
knowing that it is picked by the
most knowledgeable and influential people in the golf industry,
who recognize and acknowledge
the extraordinary creations by Pete
Dye and Herb Kohler.”
Whistling Straits and Blackwolf
Run are both public, championship-caliber courses having collectively hosted six Major
Championships, with Whistling
Straits hosting The Ryder Cup in
2020. This past August, Whistling
Straits hosted a record-breaking
PGA Championship with the most
combined ticket sales and corporate hospitality sales to date, surpassing the PGA Championship
held at Whistling Straits in 2004.
Whistling Straits is made up of
two links-style courses – the open
and rugged lakeside Straits course
and the more inland grasslandand-dunes Irish course. Borrowing
influences from Irish links
courses, the Straits has fescue fair-

ways and massive sand dune
bunkers. Just inland, interspersed
by four meandering streams, the
grassland and dunes aspect of the
Irish is a deceiving tranquil landscape. Blackwolf Run was created
alongside the Sheboygan River
and basin formed by the flows of
glacial runoff. Both the River and
Meadow Valleys courses feature
many twists and turns alongside
the river and during the fall sea-

son, golfers can watch the salmon
swimming upstream while they
play through.
“Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run have unique and
thoughtful characteristics that
challenge both the professional
and amateur golfer, which is both
enjoyable and frustrating to the
player,” said Richerson. “Knowing
our courses provide a special experience for every level of golfer,

we certainly look forward to hosting future Major Championships
and welcoming the Ryder Cup to
Whistling Straits in 2020.”

LARGEST TREE SELECTION

Kohler School
Foundation continues
to take school district
beyond the basics of
public education
For supporters who have given
generously and faithfully to the
Kohler School Foundation, it’s
often easy to lose sight of the significance of Fall Follies and the
contributions of evening that go to
the Annual Fund. Newcomers to
the village or the school often ask,
“What is Fall Follies and where
does the money go?”
Many thanks to corporate sponsors, parents, community, faculty
and even students, the Fall Follies
fundraiser event has been successful in gathering support once a
year for the past eight years. Traditionally, proceeds have gone to
the Foundation’s Annual Fund reserved for grants to the district
for the next school year. The funfilled evening with a dinner, silent
and live auction and entertainment
was designed not only to raise
much-needed funds but to help
build a sense of community.
With the community support
over the years, the Kohler School
Foundation has been able to help
enhance academics through technology to expand the classroom
virtually. The Distance Learning
Center has allowed even elementary students the opportunity to
navigate the Internet, collaborate
through Google Drive, and attend
virtual field trips. Mobile laptop
and iPad labs are reserved by
teachers and wheeled from classroom to classroom to bring the
virtual world directly to students’
desks. Other projects supported
have been outfitting each classroom with overhead projection
units and SMART boards.
Technology is not the only
focus of the Foundation. Its
Board of Directors also recognizes the development of the
whole student: that healthy students include minds, bodies and
culture of the school. The 201415 school year saw $18,800 from
the Foundation for events that
helped improve school culture,
and academic progress. Items
such as High School Advisory activities and Middle School
Bomber Time programs ultimately contribute to building co-

hesion among the students. Additionally, the Foundation committed $25,000 to the Ebben Field
renovation.
In 2014-15, $15,325 was
pledged through the Fall Follies
reverse auction to develop an outdoor learning space in the courtyard. This initiative is beginning
to take shape on the School Street
side of the school at the area often
referred to as the “old entrance.”
The space is designed to promote
curiosity, creativity, and imagination for students and the community alike. District Administrator,
Quynh Trueblood, states, “It gives
our faculty the opportunity to expand the classroom - quite literally. We envision this outdoor
learning space to provide a boundary free environment for presentations, performances and projects."
For the 2015-16 school year, the
Kohler School District recognized
a need to provide enhancements to
the shared space in the Kohler
Public Library.
The Kohler
School Foundation recently announced a grant to the school in
the amount of $45,000 to enhance
the learning space at the Kohler
Public Library - often a hub for
students to study and work together. The project, in conjunction with Kohler Village funding,
will provide spaces specific to the
various types of student learning.
From a “technology bar” that will
allow students to work more privately and individually to group
learning spaces with age-appropriate furniture and discussion
areas, the Kohler School Foundation is excited to help create a
space conducive to 21st century
learning styles in a project that
will impact every student at the
school.
Fall Follies, a community-wide
event, will be held on October 9 at
the American Club. Reservations
can be made online at
www.kohlerschoolfoundation.org.
The Foundation encourages all to
attend and it extends its gratitude
to supporters at all levels of giving.

Obituaries
Richard “Dick” Heronemus (1932-2015)
Richard “Dick” C. Heronemus,
age 83, of Kohler returned to his
Lord and Savior on Wednesday,
September 16, 2015. He was born
June 12, 1932 in Madison, WI to
Norma H. (Dersch) and William S.
Heronemus, youngest of 7 children. Richard married the love of
his life, Lois A. Bradley, on March
7, 1954 and shared 61 years of a
loving Christ centered marriage.
Together, they raised 3 children,
Jill (Kelly) Foster, Lori (Andrew)

Barrieau and Steven
(Suzanne) Heronemus.
Richard was also the
proud grandfather of 8
grandchildren,
Alex,
Emily, Lisa, Gina,
Michelle, John, Matthew
and Claire; and 2 great
grandchildren, Lyra and
Oliver. He is also survived by his brother, John and sister, Rosemary Pech. Dick was
preceded in death by his parents

and siblings, Helen,
Joyce, William E., and
Elizabeth.
Richard was a
dedicated and loving
husband, father, friend,
and follower of Christ.
After graduating from
UW Madison with a BS
of Business Administration, he provided for his family
working in Human Resources with
Appleton Papers, Citizen's Bank,

Bemis Corporation, and self-employment. He proudly served his
country in the Navy during the
Korean War. Dick was very active
in the community and church, including Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, Sheboygan Yacht Club,
United Way, and Trinity Lutheran
Church.
Funeral Service wase held on
Tuesday, September 22 at Trinity
Lutheran Church, with a luncheon

Twelve days before Richard Heronemus passed, specially modified sailboat
allowed him to set sail with son for first time in more than a decade
Twelve days before he passed
away unexpectedly, Richard
“Dick” Heronemus of Kohler was
able to spend time with his 55
year-old son, Steve Heronemus,
doing something the father/son
duo hadn’t been able to do in more
than a decade: Go sailing on Lake
Michigan.
In 2005 Steve, who was an accomplished musician on a variety
of instruments, was diagnosed
with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease),
a disorder that affects nerve cells
in the brain and spinal cord, and
over time can lead to an inability
to speak, move and breathe without mechanical assistance.
Steve currently has use of one
finger and his jaw. He uses his
eyes to operate a computer, his
main form of communication.
The Sailing Education Association of Sheboygan (SEAS) collaborated with Harken Yachting
Equipment of Pewaukee and others, including Bemis Manufacturing Co. of Sheboygan Falls, to

provide an adaptive solution for
one of the Sail Sheboygan Sonars,
which allowed Steve to skipper
and trim so that he and his dad
could share a sail together like old
times.
A special chair was handcrafted
and built for the trip, which included a head rest and neck support, a bite switch, and various
electronics synchronized to control the boat.
Steve was able to sail solo
around the Sheboygan harbor for
four hours. His father joined him
for a 20-minute jaunt. On the day
after his father’s memorial service, Steve set sail again as a tribute
to his late father, this time joined
by his own son, Matthew.
Steve told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “This trip is an affirmation that I am living with ALS
and not dying of it . . .” Steve
hopes to continually challenge
himself with longer trips and connect with other sailors living with
disabilities as well as expand

adaptive sailing opportunities in
Sheboygan and throughout the
country.

Harbor with his father) visit

Trick-or-Treat
The Kohler Police Department wants trick-ortreating to be fun and safe for everyone. To help
that cause, Officer Hocevar will be holding a
Safe Trick-or-Treat Awareness Program in the
school for the younger students. He will be
passing out trick-or-treat bags from the Police
Department. During Trick-or-Treating, which
will be on October 31st from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.,

officers will hand out glow necklaces to any
child that wants one. The glow necklaces will
make the children more visible as they are enjoying the night out. Choosing a costume where
the kids are able to maintain good vision is also
a very good idea.
Vehicle Break-ins
Recently there have been multiple vehicle
break-ins, all occurring in the Sports Core main
parking lot. The thief popped the window and
reached in and took a purse in plain view from
the interior of the vehicle. Other valuables were
left behind. The credit cards were immediately
used and gift cards were purchased. Those gift
cards were subsequently used in multiple locations in Milwaukee in a short period of time. To
keep from being an easy victim, secure your
valuables out of plain view if you need to leave
them in your vehicle. Also, keep a list of your
cards and a number to call to cancel them
quickly if needed.

Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 pm, and Saturdays
and Sundays from 1:30-4:00 pm. If you want a
great morning workout, join Water-In-Motion

Thank you to all who participated in our summer swim programs. We had a fabulous summer. We look forward to seeing you at the

Focused on enhancing the guest experience,
Kohler Waters Spa increases co-ed relaxation
space and launches seasonal experiences
Long established as an industry
leader in health, wellness and hydrotherapy experiences, Kohler Waters
Spa is never one to rest on its laurels.
Focused on continuously improving the
Five-Star guest experience at Kohler
Waters Spa at Destination Kohler, the
team has updated the 25,000 squarefoot facility to include more co-ed relaxation spaces to accommodate
spa-goers who desire more common
areas where guests can spend time together before and after services. These
updates coincide with the spa also
launching new seasonal services for
the fall and winter.
Time Together Is Time Well Spent
“We continue to see more groups
and couples coming in who wish to
spend time with each other, in addition
to having time alone to enjoy spa services,” said Director Kohler Waters Spas
Garrett Mersberger. “When guests and
groups travel together, they want to
spend time catching up, laughing and
enjoying each other’s company. While
the location and activities are important when planning a getaway, together time is equally as important.”
Mersberger references couples traveling together, girls and guys getaways,
and bachelorette and wedding parties
who all look for locations where they
can congregate and socialize.
The first floor of Kohler Waters Spa
now includes two revamped areas to
accommodate guests who wish to
relax before and after services. One
area, on the west side of the first floor,
includes new lounge chairs, chromotherapy lights and curtains for privacy. The other area, off the south side
of the spa, includes comfortable
couches and chairs, tables for dining,
outdoor seating and a television. Both
spaces offer the ability for individuals
to rest or groups to engage with one
another. These spaces are co-ed and
are also open for guests to enjoy spa

lunch at their leisure.
In addition, the first floor lobby includes more seating and floor-to-ceiling blue glass decorative panels that
have the look and feel of water. Each
design element of the spa has been
specifically picked out to look, feel,
sound or mimic the essence of water –
a Kohler Waters Spa specialty. The
lower level of the spa also includes
new comfortable furniture in the co-ed
relaxation spaces, some new pieces
and others refurbished.
“When we talk about health and
wellness at Kohler Waters Spa, we talk
not only about the detoxifying and
thoughtful services we offer, but also
about the importance of the ambiance
– how sound, colors and atmosphere
also contribute to a healthy mind, body
and soul,” added Mersberger. “Our
goal with the updated spaces is to provide that ultimate getaway for each
person.”
New Fall & Winter Seasonal Services

winter seasonals the fresh scents and
smells of the harvest and winter seasons.
