Sawmill Creek: Golf Getaway, Gateway to Exploration

Sawmill Creek LodgeSummer is a sacred time along the freshwater shores of Lake Erie. The days here extend endlessly, yet even the extra daylight doesn't give travelers enough time to explore all of the area's treasures.

The Lake Erie Islands region has it all from championship golf to world-class amusement parks to recreational boating. This year let Huron's Sawmill Creek Resort and Golf Club be home for your getaway, as serve as your gateway to all of the nearby wonders, whether they be natural or man-made.

At the time he built Sawmill Creek Golf Club, it was just his fourth solo design project. This daily-fee course is surrounded by a Bermuda Triangle of beauty - Sheldon Marsh to the west, Lake Erie to the north and Sawmill Creek to the east. It's not difficult to feel at ease while you're traversing this layout, but that doesn't mean it isn't challenging.
