Award-Winning Sweetgrass Golf Club Set to Open 2016 Season on Friday, April 29


(HARRIS, Michigan) – Thanks to the relatively mild winter, Sweetgrass Golf Club is set to welcome 2016 season players on Friday, April 29.

Designed by Paul Albanese, Sweetgrass is an award-winning amenity of Island Resort and Casino.  The 18-hole championship course hosts an annual Symetra Tour “Road to the LPGA” event, in which the rising stars of women’s golf compete.  The Sweetgrass layout features historic rescued bridges and a unique collection of greens (Redan, Biarritz, Island and Shared greens).

For players who enjoy organized golf events, Sweetgrass has the following two primed for May:

  • May 9: 3-Man Men’s Senior Scramble, including prizes, age divisions and Mexican Buffet
  • May 16: 2-Woman Scramble, including prizes, Italian Buffet and more

The resort’s popular golf package, the Perfect Foursome, starts at $230 per person in spring 2016 and includes a 2-night stay and three rounds of golf at Sweetgrass, TimberStone and Greywalls.  All three are ranked among Golfweek’s “America’s Best Courses You Can Play By State.”  Various other package combinations – as short as one-night stay/one round of golf and as long as four-night stay/three rounds of golf – are also available.

Sweetgrass provides a dedicated on-site golf concierge and VIP Room where groups enjoy comfortable living room-style seating, private dinners, gaming tables, beverage service, televisions and direct access to the golf course, pro shop and open fire pit.

Sweetgrass will have a companion course that’s of a completely different design and feel. As yet unnamed, it is undergoing construction with a planned 2017 debut.
