Play a Round of Golf Sunday Morning?
(Sunday Sept. 24, 7:30 am-10:30 am)
Breezy Point Resort offers three 18-hole golf courses that challenge players of every ability. Deacon’s Lodge was designed by Arnold Palmer and named after his father “Deacon”—this par 72 championship course features 18-holes and impeccably maintained bentgrass greens, tees and fairways that smoothly flow across 500 acres of gorgeous forest, wetlands and lakes. Whitebirch is a championship golf course with over 6600 yards of lush fairways, multiple tee boxes, and a healthy assortment of sand and water. The Traditional, a lakes area favorite and known as “the great equalizer,” has been challenging golfers since 1920 with its demanding fairways and undulating greens. Schedule an online tee time.
