HARRIS, Mich.) – Sweetgrass Golf Club – host course of the LPGA Symetra Tour’s annual Island Resort Championship – has captured “Best in State” rankings by Golfweek for the fourth consecutive year.

 An amenity of the Island Resort & Casino, Sweetgrass (www.sweetgrassgolfclub.com) claims the 14th spot in the national publication’s annual list, among more than 600 regulation courses in golf-rich Michigan. “With so many playing choices, we’re especially gratified that golfers return to Sweetgrass each season in greater numbers,” says Dave Douglas, Head Golf Professional. “These continued accolades affirm our commitment to provide premium value and quality playing experiences.” Situated in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Paul Albanese design has been recognized for excellent conditioning, hole variety and overall routing, among other attributes.

Several professional golfers from the Symetra Tour have praised the parkland-style layout for its challenging green complexes and overall playability. Sweetgrass and the Island Resort & Casino welcome the return of the Symetra Tour -- the LPGA’s official qualifying tour – June 28-30, 2014.
