Golf Course Information
The resort's biggest recreational draw is it's Donald Ross designed, 18-hole championship golf course which Golf Digest rated as being a 2006/2007 "Best Place to Play". This course is the oldest resort golf course in the United States and visitors today play the same course layout Ross built almost a hundred years ago. It's a real gem. Fifteen of eighteen holes have views including either mountains and or lakes and in the fall, the colors are nothing short of spectacular.
This year the resort and it's golf course were listed in the top one hundred New England resorts by readers of The Best of Northeast Golf magazine in categories which included "Best Conditioned Golf Course," "BestGolf and Spa Resort", and "Best Overall Course."
