Sugarloaf Resort

The awe-inspiring 18-holes that make up the Sugarloaf Golf Club & Golf School have proven, for so many golfers, an unforgettable experience. An experience punctuated by the rugged, demanding terrain that is the hallmark of mountain golf.  Course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. calls it, “one of the most spectacular courses I’ve ever been associated with.”

My daughter has not stopped talking about the camp

"My daughter has not stopped talking about the camp. She developed new skills, felt very comfortable in the environment (on the course, clubhouse, at the hotel and around the staff) and hopes to attend next year. Great big thanks to the staff."

Groups do not seem to have the same level of instruction

"My only comment is that the groups do not seem to get the same high level of instruction and my son appeared to be put in a group of boys who were not as experienced. I would recommend that there be a place to indicate the playing ability on the registration form or their handicap to help the placement process in the future."
