More than just golf at this year’s Ryder Cup

Local News

KOHLER, Wis. (WFRV) — If you’re not a huge fan of golf, or just don’t want to spend the money on tickets for the big match-up, there are plenty of other fun, and free, things to do with the family.

“(There is) a little something for everyone,” said Director of Marketing Betsy Froelich.

The KOHLER Golf Party kicks off Wednesday at the Shops at Woodlake Kohler, 25 Woodlake Rd., in Kohler.

It is a way to support Team USA without being near the fairway.

The event features multiple large screens to cheer on the Americans, live entertainment, and plenty of food trucks and drinks.

There is also an immersive exhibit, created by the Global Water Center, educating visitors about the world’s critical water issues and motivating them to become advocates for safe water.

“They can expect to walk in and have fun. They can expect to be educated about water itself, the miracle of water, the science of water, the water cycle and how important water is to our everyday activities,” said Director of Operations Jeff Winkler.

The exhibit is fully interactive. When you arrive, you’re assigned a wristband, you scan it, and it will attach your photo and name to it. You then choose your “character” you’d like to follow through the exhibit.

Each story is based on a real person, and real events that actually happened.

“I think sometimes in this area of the world, it’s not top of mind, but there are a lot of things we can do individually to all help bring safe water for all,” said Cindy Howley of Kohler.

Shops at the center will also offer special deals and sales.
