(HARRIS, Michigan) – The Island Resort Championship at Sweetgrass is now in it’s 8th year as part of the LPGA’s officially designated developmental tour, Symetra Tour – “Road to the LPGA”. Every summer we welcome women golfers from around the world to compete at one of Island Resort & Casino’s championship-level golf courses.
