There are football fans, and then there are Cheeseheads. While some followers of the Green Bay Packers remember the glory days of Vince Lombardi and Paul Hornung, others just have those memories in their DNA. The winning bidder on this lot can gather up his or her posse and indulge in both Packers football and some of the best golf on earth.

You’ll be transported by private jet from Naples to Wisconsin for your stay at the Kohler Riverbend Mansion “where life outshines the dream.” Originally built in 1923 as the home of Charlotte and Walter J. Kohler, the Tudor-style estate was the site of lavish parties during the 1920s and 1930s when Walter Kohler, then Governor of Wisconsin, entertained local society on a grand scale. The estate became a private club in 2001 and now features four championship golf courses.

Life will truly outshine the dream when you have the chance to play the Whistling Straits course, home to three PGA Championships and the 2020 Ryder Cup. Designed by famed architect Pete Dye, Whistling Straits is reminiscent of the seaside links courses of the United Kingdom and Ireland. It stretches across two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, with eight holes hugging the lake and the occasional flock of blackface Irish sheep; it has grass-topped dunes, rolling greens and is rumored to be the most heavily bunkered course in the world. With a length of 7,790 yards and a par of 72, it has been described as “one of the most dramatic courses on the planet” and would rank high on the bucket list for any golfer.

On game day, you’ll arrive at Lambeau Field, home of the Packers. Named for Earl “Curly” Lambeau, who co-founded the team in 1919, the stadium opened in 1957. Enjoy an up-close view of the stadium before the game with pre-game field passes.

The Packers are one of the most legendary teams in NFL history, the last of the “small town teams” that were common in the early days of the league. They have won 13 league championships, the most in NFL history, along with four Super Bowl wins and nine pre-Super Bowl era titles. Their history is usually divided into periods that correlate with the playing years of their great quarterbacks: Don Hutson (1935-45), Brett Favre (1992-2007) and Aaron Rodgers (2008-present), not to mention legendary head coach Vince Lombardi (1959-67).

You’ll enjoy the game with Shelly and Ralph in one of the only luxury boxes in the stadium that can completely open its windows… for that loud FROZEN TUNDRA experience that’s on everyone’s bucket list. The suite, situated on the 45-yard line, offers the most comfortable seating, delicious catering, dedicated suite attendant and amazing views of the action below so you won’t miss any of the best plays and greatest tackles in this one-of-a-kind atmosphere.

From the links to the gridiron, this lot will put you at the top of your game!
