Off the beaten trail, Scenes From the Dashboard Series

Scenes From The Dashboard – Whistling Straits

When Mom and Dad were here a few weeks ago we drove up to Kohler, Wisconsin and visited Whistling Straits.

I have to confess that I did not know what Whistling Straits was and for a week I was telling my boss I was going to Whispering Springs.  Whispering, Whistling, what’s the difference right?

And for all of you sewer’s out there this is a magnificent place for the wealthy and/or manificently talented golfer to play a round of golf.  I had no idea.  It is also the site of the US Open Championships and will be the Women’s US Open Championships in 2012.  A beautiful location on the shores of Lake Michigan, but the course has been man-made/built to look like some course in Scotland.  Sorry, forgot which one, but it’s the one with all the nooks and crannies and sand traps everywhere.  You can sort of tell from the photo above.

And it was Whistling!  The wind coming off the plains out over the lake made for a very breezy visit!

The day was fun and it was really nice to spend that time with Mom and Dad and hear all about their cruise adventures!
