Sweetgrass Golf Club (Upper Peninsula) Unveils New Web Site
Top Ranked Course Adds User-Friendly Site to Growing Achievements
(HARRIS, MI) – The Island Resort & Casino – home to the highly acclaimed Sweetgrass Golf Club – today announces the launch of its easy-to-navigate Web site www.sweetgrassgolfclub.com. A course overview, rates and packages, media reviews, awards garnered, and an overview of the rich history of the course’s Native American heritage are detailed within.
"Sweetgrass Golf Club and Island Resort & Casino always seek to enhance our guests’ experiences," said Island Resort & Casino General Manager Tom McChesney. "Our new golf Web site makes it simple for people to learn about our course and resort, and how to book a visit quickly and conveniently using the thorough information contained there."
The popular "Perfect 4-Some" stay-and-play package is featured on the Web site. It includes three rounds of golf at championship courses TimberStone, Marquette Greywalls and Sweetgrass, as well as two nights at award-winning Island Resort & Casino (prices starting at $249).
Owned and operated by the Hannahville Band of the Potawatomi Nation, Sweetgrass pays tribute to its tribal legacy through subtle elements on each hole. From a liberal sprinkling of the namesake sweetgrass – an herb used in healing rituals – to intricate rockwork, specially crafted bunkers and historic bridges, the Paul Albanese design incorporates Native American lore and traditions, which tell compelling stories.
Recently honored by Golf Digest as one of "America’s Best New Courses," Sweetgrass Golf Club also garnered "Best New," "Best in State" and "Best Casino Course" accolades from Golfweek. The 18-hole, par-72 gem stretches to 7,300 yards from the tips and offers five sets of tees to accommodate all levels.
Situated in Michigan’s scenic Upper Peninsula, Sweetgrass Golf Club and the Island Resort & Casino are easily accessible via Green Bay’s Austin Straubel International Airport as well as a pair of regional airports in Escanaba and Marquette.
