Mohegan Sun Country Club Back in Action

After taking the 2011 golf season off to make some course wide enhancements, Connecticut’s best keptsecret, Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug, is set to reopen this month. In addition to major modifications to the course, clubhouse and pro shop, Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug has recently named a new golf professional, Andrew Ouellet. The course will reopen for play beginning June, with a special private grand opening celebration set for Saturday, June 9th.

NEWLY-DESIGNED COURSE: As part of the extensive renovations, Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug has all new greens, redesigned bunkers and has added 125 yards of additional distance to the overall course. Some of the most noticeable changes include the complete rebuild of five of the holes, including the beautifully redesigned par-five on hole 6 that now stretches 495 yards from the black tees with an approach shot that carries over a cascading waterfall and side water hazard.

CLUBHOUSE REVAMPED: The playing field isn’t the only big change at Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug.
