There's nothing like a good frost to make the fall foliage pop; this past Saturday, we awoke to temperatures in the 20s, a heavy frost, and even snow on the top third of the mountain. Our eager Snowmakers even got in on the action by firing up 10 guns along Tote Road. Though it was merely a system and equipment test, it sure was exciting to see snow in October.
The mornings have been starting out on the chilly side, however, by mid-day temperatures are near-sixty, and conditions are prime for fall golf. Though fall colors are exploding here in the mountains, experts say they were are a bit behind schedule in terms of foliage; so if you plan on joining us for our annual Homecoming Weekend, October 9-11, you should have plenty of leaf peeping opportunities.
There's no more beautiful time to enjoy a round of golf at Maine's premier golfing destination, and you could save as much as 40% on select tee-times when you book online. And, what's better than a round of golf at one of Maine's top rated golf courses? Two rounds of golf; one at each of the state's premier courses--Sugarloaf and Belgrade Lakes. We've teaming up with the folks over at Belgrade this fall, to offer golfers the opportunity to experience the very best of fall golf in Maine!
You'll enjoy 18 hole rounds at each course, plus a one-night stay at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel. Click over to our lodging packages page for all the details.
The end of the season has a way of zooming by, and although winter will be here before you know it, we aren't wishing away the season too soon. There are still plenty of rounds to be played this season, so make plans to for the last few rounds of the season, and we hope to see on Saturday, October 17, for our Fall Finale golf scramble.
