Both are situated along beautiful Blackberry Creek, which runs through Sugar Grove.
Another tremendous outdoor Sugar Grove attribute is Rich Harvest Farms. Rich Harvest Farms has been a premiere destination for golfers from all over the world. The course has earned many distinct honors including consistently being named one of Rolex’s “World’s Top 1,000 Golf Courses” and Golf Digest’s ”America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” The private, members only facility is also home to the Kids Golf Foundation of Illinois.
