Golf News
The golf course is in excellent shape, so put some greens into your daily diet! We have something to suit every schedule, whether you have enough time for seeing all 18 holes, playing 9 of ‘em, or just visiting the driving range for a bit.

To pique your interest further, here is a bit of history about our lovely golf course: it was designed by the famous Geoffrey Cornish, who is responsible for more than 200 course designs around New England. Originally built in 1927, the course then offered 9 holes until Cornish redesigned the now Championship course at a par 71 with over 6,567 yards. You’ll find it incredibly user-friendly. After all, “the only tough drive you will have is the drive home”! Private lessons with PGA Professional Paul Meunier are available, catering to all skill levels from beginner to pro! Call extension 899.

Two of Vermont’s most famous storytellers, Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder, will be here tonight in the Club Room. Their storytelling with music will engage crowds of all ages. Come see the magic!

Ann-Marie will be capturing candid images at various events throughout the day and this evening at the Harbor Fair. Please feel free to say hello and let her know if you have any requests. Our Family Portrait Special will be available tonight at Harbor Fair and Thursday morning at the Wilderneath Garden.  Space is limited, so please sign up in advance with the concierge.
