*Please Note: The course will be closed to public play from Sunday, August 20-Thursday, August 24 for the Coca Cola AJGA Championships.
Summer vacation may be winding down, but the summer season is still alive and well at the Sugarloaf Golf Club. Last week, the top golfers in Maine battled it out for top honors in the annual State of Maine Championship. Three-time champion, John Hickson fired a second-day 74 to claim his fourth win over second place finisher, Reese Mcfarlane. After 36 holes the two were tied at one-under par, leading to a one-hole shootout. McFarlane's approach landed just shy of the hole but rolled backward off the green, while Hickson sank a birdie putt for win.
The team at the Sugarloaf Golf Club will now focus on preparations for the American Junior (AJGA) Coca-Cola Championship, which returns for its fifth year August 21-24.
The course is in great shape across all 18 holes, and with the kids out of school for a couple more weeks, there's not better time to escape to the mountains and enjoy a round at the #1 course in the state of Maine. Save Big when you book your tee time online in advance.
Thanks to a recent investment by the town of Carrabassett Valley, our driving range has been completely renovated and is now completely open. With improved irrigation and elevated target greens, the new-and-improved range will help to hone your skills before you hit the course.
