Sage Run, designed by Paul Albanese, joins the celebrated Sweetgrass course at the resort for the Hannahville Indian Community, and offers a contrasting style and design. The land at Sage Run is 180 degrees in contrast from its sister course Sweetgrass with its prairie links style.
Sage Run, ranked among Golf Digest’s America’s Best New Courses, meanders through beautiful Upper Peninsula hardwoods and open vistas with very dramatic views. A natural drumlin, or elongated hill or ridge formed by glacial ice long ago, is the primary feature on Sage Run. A variety of golf holes meander off of and around the hill offering a scenic variety of shots creating a fun thrill ride for golfers. The challenging combination of long holes with creative short par fours lined with fescue grasses and strategic bunkering will challenge golfers of all abilities.
The Island Resort Intercollegiate at Sage Run hosted by South Dakota State University took place on September 3 & 4, 2023.
