Fall is finally here! We're saying goodbye to the last day of what has been a summer to remember here at the Sugarloaf Golf Club. Fantastic, dry weather week-after-week has meant plenty of playing time, and conditions have been excellent from the start of the season straight on through. With the arrival of fall, there are only a few more weeks left in our golf season; the start of beautiful fall colors means there's no better time to come play a round before the season wraps up!
If you want to play one of Maine's top courses this year, you'll want to book your tee time soon - or risk waiting until next May! There's never been a better time to play, as the air cools off and the crowds thin out. Not to mention, the famous fall foliage is beginning to change colors here in Carrabassett Valley.
If you're looking for other adventures here at Sugarloaf, our inaugural Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Festival kicks off this weekend, September 23-25. Featuring guided rides, demo bikes, skills clinics, concerts, BBQs, and more, it's going to be one of the best riding weekends of the year. Grab your festival passes now! You can also click over to our events calendar for more upcoming happenings.
The Outpost Adventure Center is open Fridays through Mondays from 9am-4pm until Homecoming weekend, offering segway tours, zipline adventures, stand up paddleboard & kayak rentals. Scenic lift rides are also available Saturdays and Sunday only, through Homecoming weekend (10/9/16).
We hope to see you here soon!
Play Tips from the Pros
When faced with a bunker shot, most golfers will open the face of the golf club to add more loft to the club. By opening the face of the club you will notice that the face points to the right. This causes the ball to go right. To square up the face you need to drop the grip so it is closer to the sand. This will allow you to square the face of the club easier and have your bunker shots start more on target. So if you miss your bunker shots to the right, try this tip.
