What People are Saying
“Sweetgrass Golf Club is without a doubt an excellent track. It is playable by all types of golfers and will test your entire game. Each hole is properly named as it incorporates a special trait paying homage to the Hannahville Band of the Potawatomi Nation. Plan on playing it twice because after stepping off the 18TH green and adding up your score, you will be yearning to knock at least six strokes off your first round score….at least that is what I did.
