The 2016 golf season has officially begun at Sugarloaf!
The course crew has done a great job this spring of whipping the turf into shape, and the course is playing great across all 18. The mild winter wasn't so great for skiing, but it has led to some of the best early-season conditions we've ever seen here on the course.
In addition to routine maintenance, the course crew has been busy with some other projects, including repaving of several sections of cart paths, new sod on a portion of number 14 green, and work to bring the upper left section of number 10 green back into play, to allow for more creative and challenging pin placements.
Strokes Bar & Grille is also open for the season from 7am-7pm, with a newly revitalized menu featuring fresh seasonal salads, house-smoked meats, designer sandwiches, and more.
So if you haven't done so already, stop by the Clubhouse this weekend for your first round of the season, enjoy a bite to eat, grab your 2016 seasonal membership, and meet our new Head Golf Professional, Zach Zondlo.
Here are a few course notes to mark on your calendar as the 2016 season gets underway:
- Tin Mountain Round Up is schedule for the first weekend in June (June 3-5), meaning you can enjoy a full round of 18 for just $40 with a donation of three or more cans of food.
- Nike Junior Golf Camps will be held June 27-30, July 18-21, and August 1-4 this summer, and there's still time to sign up.

- We'll be hosting the the worlds top junior golfers once again this summer for the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Coca-Cola Junior Championship, August 21-25, and, once again the course will be closed to the public to play during this time.
