BALTIC, Connecticut – Mohegan Sun Golf Club is one of New England’s top golf destinations and the 2023 season, which officially opened April 15, will be special.
Recently recognized as one of the “Top 50 Casino Golf Courses” in the world by Golfweek, the par 72 course is noted for its pristine playing conditions, rolling landscape and some unique elevation changes.
The really good news to share with readers is that the powers-that-be within the Indian tribe known as the ‘Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut‘ hired world-class golf architect Ron Garl to upgrade the 156-acre property and those renovations will be completed by Memorial Day weekend. The Florida-based Ron Garl, who has designed or renovated 289 courses around the world, has built new greens on hole No. 3 and No. 12, and several new and improved bunker projects are already completed including hole No. 11.
Mohegan Sun Casino took ownership of the golf course in 2007 and these renovations are part of a three-year, multi-phase renovation implementing various redesigns and improvements across the golf course to improve both pace-of-play and the overall golfing experience for Casino guests, members and the public.
“Mohegan Sun is one of the world’s most amazing destinations with some of New England’s finest dining, hotel accommodations, shopping, live entertainment and sporting events and now we are thrilled to showcase our new-and-improved golf course,” said Philip Krick, PGA Master Professional and Vice-President/General Manager of Mohegan Sun Golf Club. “The overall renovations of new bunkers, a few new greens and improvements to fairways elevates the golf experience to a level that Mohegan Sun is recognized for.”
Apres-golf guests can enjoy amenities in the spacious, well-appointed clubhouse including food and beverage at the Pautipaug Pub & Grille. Stretching 20,000 square feet, the clubhouse includes a well-stocked pro shop, fitness room and second-floor banquet room, that can be customized for private parties, receptions & group events. The strategically located and popular “Triple Tee Snack Bar,” greets players out on the course at a prime location adjacent to three tee boxes – Hole No. 9, No. 14 and No. 17.
Mohegan Sun Golf Club is home to a top-notch practice facility and state-of-the-art Golf Academy where guests can take advantage of a comprehensive training program, equipped with the latest in-video and shot-tracking technologies. Head Golf Professional Joe Mentz is available for lessons, coaching and outdoor training from driver-to-wedge-to-putter.
