The Midwest might be blanketed by snow and buffeted by freezing winds, but a brutal winter isn’t stopping plans for new golf courses, especially in Wisconsin. A few months back, we reported here in The Buzz that Mike Keiser, who developed Bandon Dunes, is working on a new resort called Sand Valley, near Wisconsin Rapids in the middle of the state, with a first course designed by Coore/Crenshaw. Now—possibly in reaction to Keiser’s project—there’s talk of a new Pete Dye track for Herb Kohler's American Club, which already has four Dye creations. According to Golf Channel, the 88-year-old Dye is looking at land that “Herb’s been sitting on” for a number of years, not far from Whistling Straits (above). “There would be four holes along Lake Michigan,” Dye said. “I wish I could have more along the water. That’s always the case.” Nothing like dueling millionaires to keep the golf-construction business humming.
