With many feet of snow covering the ground from Boston to Sugarloaf, temperatures consistently in the single digits, and more winter weather in the forecast, it's hard to believe we're already planning for the upcoming golf season.
But if living in Maine has taught us anything, it's that weather patterns can change in an instant, and a mere three months stand between us and the start of the 30th season at Maine's premier golf course.
You never know for sure what the winter weather is going to mean for greens and fairways until you pull covers off in the spring, but our grounds crew sees reason to be optimistic. For starters, the turf on the course has never been healthier than it was last fall when we put everything to bed. And on top of that, this winter's consistent cold temperatures have meant fewer of the thaw/freeze cycles that cause ice to build up and grass to suffer.
We're looking forward to another big summer on the course, with big events on tap, including the AJGA Coca Cola Championship, State of Maine Championships, a 30th Birthday Celebration, and some new tournaments and events we'll be announcing soon.
Membership and Fore Packs will be going on sale soon, but if you want to get a jump start on the season, there's no better way than a golf and stay package. And, if you book yours before June 1, 2015, you'll enjoy the best rates of the entire year on your trip.
The Outpost is ramping up for its third full summer in operation, with ziplines, segway tours, scenic lift rides, watersport rentals and more ready for you this summer.
And if you have yet to experience the network of more than 60 miles of mountain biking trails in the Carrabassett area, this is the summer to give them a try. Stop by Outpost to pick up a trail map and start exploring today.
Be sure you check back in from time to time over the next few months, and we'll see you here this summer!
