CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – For the seventh consecutive year, the Sugarloaf Golf Club will play host to Maine’s top professional and amateur golfers as they compete for cash, prizes, and ultimate bragging rights as the state’s top golfer in the 2009 State of Maine Championship, August 17-19.

Nearly 100 golfers will converge at Sugarloaf for the 36-hole medal play tournament, which matches up Maine’s top professional and amateur golfers in junior, senior, and 18-50 year-old categories. To compete in the tournament professionals must be a member of the Maine Chapter of the New England PGA, while all Maine residents are eligible to compete in the amateur category.

The Sugarloaf Golf Club has hosted the event for the past six years and 14 out of the last 16 years. The course has proven to be a challenge for even the best players, rewarding good shots while punishing poor ones.

Among this year’s competitors will be last year’s winner and five-time tournament champion Bob Darling from Fox Ridge Golf Club in Auburn, as well as 2007 champ John Hickson from Dick’s Sporting Goods. 

Sugarloaf Golf Club has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of America’s Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design is sculpted from the natural terrain that lies in the Carrabassett River valley. The most memorable holes on the course, the String of Pearls, is a six-hole sequence that runs alongside the Carrabassett River.
