With 17 of its 18 verdant holes featuring in-play water hazards, the challenging yet fair links at Bittersweet Golf Club have earned its apropos moniker, as well as the Daily Herald's 2010 Readers' Choice Award. Mature hardwoods and wetlands stand guard over four tees as orbs assail formidable fairways, and groomed, game-bolstering bentgrass greens counteract any frustration experienced at tests such as the ninth hole, which bares the name "slim" despite being constantly full of gummy worms. To further increase player enjoyment, the course's toughest turns and landings were recently widened, persuading 3-woods to spend less time off to the side with their still-rooted ancestors.

Having opened in 1974, Foss Park Golf Club embarks on its fifth decade of challenging golfers to demonstrate long drives and precise approaches on its 18-hole course. The layout arcs across a grassy patch dotted with ponds, a stream, and clusters of trees, all of which aim to keep golfers as far away from the par of 72 as possible. Rather than lifting weights in an effort blast shots directly through tree trunks, golfers can learn to work shots around obstacles with some time on the lighted grass-tee driving range or a lesson with PGA head pro Gabe Monroe.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,839 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.9 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 126 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

Cutting out through Southport Marina and onto the open water of Lake Michigan, the sloops of Red Sails Charter & Sailing Lessons are impossible to miss. Aboard the beautifully maintained Panache, students or Captain Richard Charette can trim the classic boat's signature crimson sails. Under the tutelage of Captain Richard, newbie sailors learn skills such as flying the spinnaker, steering, and the best wind position for hair whipping. Charters are also available for those who want to kick back on the boat while the crew mans the deck.
