The awe-inspiring 18-holes that make up the Sugarloaf Golf Club are sure to provide an unforgettable experience. An experience punctuated by the rugged, demanding terrain that is the hallmark of mountain golf.

Sugarloaf's designer, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., calls the layout "One of the most spectacular courses I've ever been associated with." He might have been thinking of the 11th hole when he said it.

With the hulking presence of Bigelow Mountain hovering behind the green, Sugarloaf's 11th is neatly framed by silvery birch forests and the rock-strewn Carrabassett River.
