When the resort operator opens its new Gurnee, Ill. property next year, F&B offerings will include Barnwood, a restaurant serving locally sourced small plates and craft cocktails that will also be open to non-resort customers.

A controlled burn of a swampy area at Bittersweet Golf Club in Gurnee, Ill., by employees grew to several acres, and several regional fire departments extinguished the blaze.

Though the fire was ruled unintentional, investigators will decide if the golfer will face consequences.
