At Destination Kohler, they understand the importance of your wedding day (and everything that goes with it), and want it to be as perfect as you’ve always imagined. Your Kohler experience begins the day before your Whistling Straits wedding (or earlier) with a wide variety of activities in the Village of Kohler. Relax and replenish your mind and body at the Kohler Waters Spa, hit the links on one of their four award-winning golf courses at Whistling Straits or Blackwolf Run, or enjoy the beautiful outdoor activities offered by the resort. Your rehearsal dinner can be held at one of many Kohler venues, which vary in style and size. Don’t forget to inform your out-of-town guests to meet you in the Horse & Plow later that evening to start the celebrations!
The convenience of an on-site ceremony is available in Kohler, whether you are looking for breathtaking views of Lake Michigan from the Irish Barn at Whistling Straits or an elegant garden ceremony at The American Club; there are several indoor and outdoor locations to select from. Following your ceremony, it’s time to celebrate. They have carefully designed several packages at each location to assist you in planning. Their renowned chefs will prepare an exquisite meal to keep your guests talking for years to come.

The Irish Barn
A distinctive fieldstone barn with the east side exposed, the Irish Barn overlooks Whistling Straits holes No. 9, No. 10 and No. 18 and Lake Michigan. This fieldstone structure is reminiscent of barns in the Irish countryside and serves as a most unique location for weddings – the perfect balance of rustic elegance. The east wall is entirely open to the elements, although canvas walls with windows can be pulled down, and stand heaters can be turned on if needed. Guests can easily flow in and out, perhaps catching a glimpse of sheep roaming the course.
- Capacity for reception: seating for 120 guests
- Capacity for ceremony only: 250 guests (with tent rental)
- The Irish Barn cannot accommodate both a reception and a ceremony; see Championship Locker Room Terrace for additional location
