Sweetwater Golf & Country Club’s 18-hole Highlands Course covers 6,771 yards peppered with mature oak trees. Prepare for the round with a practice session at the course’s driving range, where a bucket of balls tee themselves up for towering drives while proffering incisive commentary on the universally strained relationship between golf balls and sheets of glass. An obedient cart then whisks players to the club’s picturesque par 72 course to begin a round that includes a memorable 625-yard par 5 dubbed the “Loch Ness Monster,” which features a tree-lined fairway that double-doglegs around the edges of a pristine lake. Once players have conquered the grassy beast, they can recapitulate memorable shots over an order of buffalo wings ($9.99) from Fife & Drum Pub’s menu or compare their favorite argyle-print socks over a succulent half-pound steak burger ($6.99) from Carnoustie Cafe’s menu.
Sweetwater Golf & Country Club’s rates fluctuate throughout the day, week, and year.
Sweetwater Golf & Country Club
Sweetwater Golf & Country Club's 18-hole Highlands Course weaves over 6,771 yards of fairways and greens stitched by mature oaks. The player-friendly, par 72 course puts clubbers face to face with the Loch Ness Monster—which is the name bestowed upon the course's signature hole, a 625-yard par five that double-doglegs around a lake. Golfers can prepare for their round with a stint at the club's driving range, where practice balls await to be launched in the stratosphere while commenting on the tense relationship between golf balls and sheets of glass. The club fosters more competitive fun at its tennis complex, which boasts eight lighted, outdoor Har-Tru—green clay—tennis courts.
After a day spent reading putts or thrashing forehands, guests can unwind at one of the club's three dining facilities. The relaxed vibes of the Fife & Drum Pub and the Carnoustie Café welcome casually-clad guests fresh off the course, and the more formal, chandelier-lit confines of the Highlands Dining Room provides an apropos backdrop for dinner parties or a romantic setting for date night for golfers and their caddy.
