Bittersweet Golf Club

Bittersweet Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course owned by the Village of Gurnee, IL, well known as home to entertainment, shopping and dining destinations. A scenic course, Bittersweet is rich in natural beauty. The landscape features mature hardwood trees, vibrant wetlands, a 100-year-old sage meadow, native prairies, wildflowers and an abundance of wildlife. This public course is very much on par with the conditions and feel of a private country club.

What They’re Saying

  • Friendly staff to a newbie. Just hit the driving range but it was a nice facility. Token based golf baskets. So you either but at the proshop or card at the kiosk. Better value in the proshop. We will likely be back for the actual course later and will update review then.

  • Well maintained golf course, greens, fairways, and tee boxes. Bittersweet is a fine course with some challenging holes. Greens are somewhat fast, and hole placement fair. Hit them straight on this track and you will do well. I liked playing the course. Excellent course I will return.
