Poland Springs

Hi All,

Weekend getaway - Poland Springs Resort.

Fall weekend getaway.  This is one of their SuperSaver deals.  The weekend's rate is approx $110 pp do ($160 single) plus taxes and/or service charges. It includes 2 nights lodging and 4 meals.  Greens fees are 1/2 price (I think $17) as well as 99 cent beer, popcorn & sundaes. (Fri's dinner is now included).

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. Their number is (207) 998-4351.  They also have other buildings/rooms which can be even cheaper but they are not as convenient.  After booking, please rsvp on this site.

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 few miles down the street.

Please fill out the attached question form which lists the tee times with the days you plan to play.  Friday's tee times start at 2pm and sunset is at 6:20pm so I think we'll be able to get all 18 in.  Saturday and Sunday's are shortly after breakfast and listed in the attached.   I will update the course on 9/15 with the # of players each day so please be sure to respond so we don't lose the spots. 

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,

Cindi

    Thanks everyone for such a fun weekend despite the Saturday's gloominess. Luckily, Friday and Sunday were gorgeous.
    Thanks all for this week's education.....
    I now know that giraffes are not in YellowStone,
    I know what is long and _______ (you know the rest) and what isn't.
    I sorta know about the south and how that relates to the moose in Maine and of course Harry Potter - slurp!
    Best of all, I learned how to get the newest golf cart at the course. Priceless!
    Thanks again for making it such a fun weekend1

    Hi Cindi. I am having Comcast problems in my nEighborhood which is interfering with my email. I would love to golf worth y'all on Friday but can only do Friday and would not be staying as I am heading to coastal Maine top visit friend for the weekend. If Friday at 2 pm tee time can accommodate another person I'd love that. So sorry to be so late with this request. I also texted you. Thanks for considering. Mary

    Ha that was more for the food quality than my gambling ability!

    I see we've made a gambler out of you !!!! I'm up for it. The Inn now includes dinner for Friday night but the casino has an excellent buffet as well.

    I vote for Oxford Friday night! Looking forward to it.
