Mother Nature really came through on Saturday, parting the clouds and providing a perfect evening for a live performance by Girls Guns and Glory—the second performance in our all-new Summer Concert Series. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 20th, when Maine bluegrass-favorite,Tricky Britches, take the stage as our third and final act. And, if you haven't already heard, we have two new and exciting events coming this fall: The Flume 5K & 10K trail race on August 20th, and the inaugural Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Festival September 23-26. Register for either event this week, and enjoy discounted prices when you sign up before July 31.

Play Tips from the Pros
One of the many challenges that golfers face on the Sugarloaf Golf Course are the many doglegs that tempt you to play aggressively. If played correctly, golfers will find themselves with a much shorter approach shot to the green. If played incorrectly, golfers could find themselves grabbing another golf ball and marking a much higher score. To score well on this course, you must know your strengths and play to them. During your next round, play your most comfortable tee shot so it will land at the 150 yard stake and you will find yourself with a lower score at the end of the day.
