Bittersweet...its very name suggests the complexity of this beautiful golf course. Public, while sporting private-club conditions. Upscale, yet moderately priced. Undeniably challenging, yet more fun and player-friendly than ever before with improvements made during the last decade and even in the last year with freshly renovated cart paths, vegetation management efforts and the expansion of playing corridors and sightlines. We are close to the Tri-State Tollway and Gurnee attractions such as Six Flags and Gurnee Mills, yet tucked away in a serene, natural setting.
At Bittersweet, you'll find smooth emerald greens, undulating fairways and multitiered tee boxes, meticulously manicured bentgrass playing surfaces framed by bluegrass rough, vibrant wetlands and mature oak savannas. More than great golf, Bittersweet offers immersion in nature. Each hole feels like a self-contained adventure, affording a sense of peace and exclusivity, and amazing vistas abound.
Bittersweet's multiple tee placements render it still more accessible. Whether you play from the red tees for 5,500 yards, from the blue for 6,500 or from the black at 6,900, you will face a friendly challenge with water on 16 of the 18 holes and an array of bunkers and trees to strategically avoid.
