In 2018 Island Resort & Casino opened its second golf course, Sage Run, which was also designed by Paul Albanese and is a bold contrast to its sister course, Sweetgrass. Selected by Golf Digest as one the “Best New” courses in the country in 2019, the course features a more rugged terrain with hardwoods, open areas and a massive ridge/drumlin and bunkers that Albanese likens to Royal County Down, a Northern Ireland golf club rated among the World’s finest.
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 with very dramatic views. Golf holes were routed up and around the ridge offering scenic views and fun challenging shots creating a fun thrill ride for golfers. A variety of long and short golf holes with long fescue grasses lining the fairway and edging the bunkers, as well as creative short par fours with some blind shots, will challenge golfers of all abilities. In 2019, the resort hosted the inaugural Island Resort Intercollegiate at Sage Run hosted by South Dakota State University.
