Our entire group had a wonderful time. The facilities and the courses were in terrific condition and the added services such as club cleaning and the evening bag storage, really set Swan Lake Resort apart from the others. The entire staff were very professional and treated us all as special guests. I think we all agreed that Swan Lake Resort was the best we've experienced in our 19 years of having this group together. Our plan is to return again next year.

I planned a trip for eight to Swan Lake Resort for a bachelor party. We planned the event as a Stay and Play package with Lindsay and she walked me through everything. It was a painless, seamless process. Their package prices are very reasonable. We stayed in a log cabin and greatly enjoyed the rustic feel with full amenities. The fire pit was a great addition. I planned our four round Ryder Cup format with Clint and he input all our info into their EZ golf system. Our carts were always waiting on us with bags ready, scorecards printed and everything squared away. We made some changes between rounds and it was very easy. Everyone on staff was attentive and polite. Overall the experience was exceptional. Its only 2 hours from Chicago and we are already rebooking for a group of 16 next year!

I have been planning golf tournaments with friends for the last 15 years. I have always taken pride in the planning and scoring of our tournaments. We brought our 32 player Ryder Cup tournament to Swan Lake in October and, at first, I turned down the offer to use the resort's Group EZ service because "I knew how to run a golf trip". After speaking with Clint about the service I reconsidered and, let me tell you, "just another golf trip" turned into the best golf trip we've had throughout all the years. Clint and the staff at Swan Lake took care of everything. We literally dropped our clubs off upon arrival and they did the rest (except hit good golf shots) for us. The burden of running a golf trip can take some of the fun out of it, but I went from the organizer of the trip to a player just enjoying the weekend. I would recommend Swan Lake Resort and the Group EZ to anyone who wants to have a great golf weekend tournament without the stress of organizing the event. Thank you Clint and the staff at Swan Lake for a great golf weekend, we'll be back next year!
