Weekend getaway - Poland Springs Resort - June 14 - June 16th.
This is one of their SuperSaver deals. The weekend's rate is $100 pp do ($150 single) plus taxes and/or service charges. Includes 2 nights lodging, 3 meals, 1/2 price green fees (I think $17) as well as 99 cent beer, popcorn & sundaes. (Fri's dinner is optional at $12/$13).
Although not fancy, its clean, comfortable and relaxing. Their motto is "stress free zone" and it really is. Golf Digest once added them in their "best places to play". It has beautiful views, a large porch/veranda with rocking chairs overlooking the valley and golf course. They have nightly entertainment, a social/great room and a bar. Their meals are buffet/family style fairly basic - nothing fancy, but decent.
If interested, I would suggest booking a room at the Maine Inn - its more convenient to everything. If you use my last name DUCLOS they will try to keep us together. Their number is (207) 998-4351. Right now they have good availability but they're filling up. They also have other buildings/rooms which can be even cheaper but they are not as convenient.
For those that may be inviting non-golfers the inn/area offers many other things -hiking, biking, tennis, antiques, art galleries, Shaker Village, Wildlife Park, Gardens, LL Bean Outlet, flea markets - see their website for a more complete list and details. There is also a new Casino a mile or so down the street which opened last year.
I've already reserved my room. If you're interested, call the Inn directly at (207)[masked] but make sure you list yourself on the meetup site and indicate whether you would like a roommate or not or email me directly and I'll see what I can do. Other members can then email you or I can try to coordinate the match up. If you're all set, indicate that too (so I won't bug you). Once I get an idea of how many people are going, I'll reserve the T times.
Lastly, I've reserved some tee times for the three days. Please indicate which days you will be playing on the question form. I will adjust (if I can) more or less times depending on interest but we at least have what's listed reserved.
Their web site polandspringresort.com has more details. I think it would be a great weekend get away all for the price of a high end golf course at home.
Hope you can make it,
