TOWN OF WILSON, WI (WHBL) - The Kohler Company wants to build a fifth golf course in Sheboygan County.
At a packed Town of Wilson board meeting Monday evening, Destination Kohler GM Michael Belot provided few details about their plans at what is currently tented forest property along Lake Michigan just north of the Kohler-Andrae State Park. All that was shared was it would be an 18-hole course with basic amenities, like a clubhouse, maintenance facility and golf cart barn. Access to the course would be off County V/12th Street.
Few town residents spoke up about the project during the meeting. One resident, Kathlene Remmer, questioned the company’s intentions of wanting to change land she sees as the last pristine lakeshore habitat along the western shores of Lake Michigan to something that does not fit there - a golf course.
The town approved a pre-development agreement, making Kohler cover costs as the planning process continues.
Kohler lawyer Steven Westphal said the company will provide the public opportunities to comment on the project in the future.
