Sugarloaf Golf Club: Let the Sugarloaf Golf School raise your game 

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - The Sugarloaf Golf Club is known throughout the industry for both its beauty and its challenge, and the pros at the Sugarloaf Golf School can provide the tools to meet that challenge and take home new skills and confidence.

“The inspiring views make players want to be at the best of their game,” said Scott Hoisington, Sugarloaf’s Director of Golf, “Our experienced pros work with players on skills that will help them enjoy the unique challenges of the Sugarloaf Golf course and will also lead to more effective play at home.”

Over the years thousands of golfers have participated in the school and have improved their game and become better golfers. The Sugarloaf Golf School program includes five hours of instruction each day, videotape analysis and critique, unlimited use of practice areas, powered golf carts and, best of all, unlimited access to Sugarloaf’s world-famous and spectacular golf course. The low student-to-pro ratio of 4:1 ensures the personalized attention needed to raise a player’s game to a new level. 

In addition, guests are invited to stay at the Sugarloaf Inn or The Grand Summit Hotel, relax at the Sugarloaf Sports and Fitness Club, and enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. With enrollment in the golf school, guests receive a complimentary welcome gift bag, breakfast and lunch each day, a cocktail party and welcome dinner, and a personalized video tape.

New to the Golf School this year, Sugarloaf’s pros will offer instruction in the new “Stack and Tilt” technique. Hailed as “The New Tour Swing” by Golf Digest and used by PGA Pros like Aaron Baddely and Mike Weir, the Stack and Tilt swing emphasizes the elimination of weight shift on the backswing, and has helped many golfers hit the ball straighter and farther than ever before.

Sugarloaf has also partnered with Nike again this season to offer the Nike Fitting Center, ensuring that every student uses the precisely right sized clubs. Sugarloaf pros will work with each student to provide the proper fit – from loft and lie on irons to loft and shaft specifications for drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids.

Sugarloaf offers a variety of Golf School Packages, each tailored to meet the specific needs of the guest, including

  • Two Day Weekend Golf School
  • 2-5 Day Midweek Golf School
  • Fall Special Clinics
  • Weekend Tune-Ups

Packages are all inclusive, with lodging , daily breakfast and lunch, use of demo clubs, video swing analysis, sports and fitness club access, tennis courts, and more.

Sugarloaf also offers custom golf clinics, which allow guests tailor lessons to specific areas of their game that they wish to improve. Clinics are 1-2 hours in length, and guests can schedule them before or after a round.
