Golf packages are now available at the Upper Peninsula’s premier golf destination
(Escanaba, MI) – Spring and golf season have finally arrived in Michigan’s scenic Upper Peninsula, and Island Resort & Casino, located just outside of Escanaba, and its award winning Sweetgrass Golf Club have opened for the season. The resort is also preparing to open the third new golf course in Michigan in three years, Sage Run, when it comes online July 10.
Michigan has long been known as one of the top states for golf and the scenic Upper Peninsula region has quickly joined the ranks as a top golf destination thanks in large part to the growth and expansion of golf at the Island Resort & Casino.
Sweetgrass is also part of the “Road to the LPGA” with its Symetra Tour Island Resort Championship (June 22-24) featuring the future of women’s professional golf.
Opening July 10, 2018 will be the Sage Run course, also designed by Albanese, which provides a different and fun golf experience. The land at Sage Run is 180 degrees in contrast from its sister course Sweetgrass with its prairie links style. The course meanders through beautiful Upper Peninsula hardwoods and open vistas including up and around a natural drumlin or ridge providing a scenic variety of shots creating a fun thrill ride for golfers.
Golfers seeking to escape the stress of the big city and experience a scenic and peaceful golf vacation among the rugged beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula should plan a trip to the Island Resort.
The Island Resort & Casino golf packages combine the best golf in the region led its Sweetgrass and new Sage Run courses. The fully customizable packages offer 1, 2, 3, and 4-night lodging options with up to four rounds of golf.
