Sage Run at Island Resort & Casino Ready to Open Full-Time this Spring

HARRIS, MI – Sage Run at Island Resort & Casino, on May 31, will be the third new golf course to open in Michigan in the last three years.

Mancilla said the building of Sweetgrass at the Hannahville Indian community resort answered the need for an additional amenity for resort guests, but it also brought about increased demand by golfing guests

Sweetgrass, a flowing prairie links style course with gentle rolling hills, fun and challenging greens and beautiful fescue grasses, has been a big hit since opening in 2008 Sweetgrass is part of the “Road to the LPGA” with its Symetra Tour Island Resort Championship (June 21-23) featuring the future of women’s professional golf.

Mancilla said Albanese is an architect who lets the land dictate what the designs of his courses will be, and at Sage Run the land is 180 degrees in contrast to the land where Sweetgrass was created.

“Sage Run is 75 percent through great trees, very dramatic up and down through the hills with some great long holes going down the hills and some great short holes going up the hills; It’s a lot different.”

Albanese said his company’s design philosophy is to never try to force a design and they stayed true to it at Sage Run. A natural drumlin, or elongated hill or ridge formed by glacial ice long ago, is the primary feature on Sage Run.Natural long grasses edge the bunkers, and some of the short par 4s have blind shots to the greens. Royal County Down in Northern Ireland, rated among the world’s top courses, served as inspiration.

The Sage Run name pays homage for the Hannahville Indian Community to the Potawatomi tribal traditions.
