The Top 5 Reasons to Take a Golf Getaway this Fall

Spring in St. Michaels, MD

Summer is officially coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! In fact, fall can be one of the best seasons to make a trip out to the Eastern Shore for some golfing and relaxing. Here are our top reasons to take a golf trip this fall:

5 reasons to go golfing on the eastern shore this year:

1. Weather: Now that we’re past the summer’s sweltering heat, you can enjoy a nice long round of golf without melting. Autumn is the perfect time to visit the Eastern Shore, with temperatures between the mid to high 70’s it is the ideal time to take a golf trip!4.0.1

2. Smooth Sailing: Summer is over, which means a lot less traffic standing between you, and a relaxing day of golf. Traveling after Labor Day is the best time to get the most out of your weekend without having to worry about when you will actually get there.

3. Harbourtowne Golf Specials: In honor of fall, we are running some great stay and play deals. Now through November you can book a Masters Golf Package (10 players minimum) and receive a $20.00 per room food and beverage credit. Packages start at $249.98 per person and include waterfront guest rooms for 2, three rounds of golf (18 holes with cart), and breakfast each morning. For more information or to book your weekend visit our website.

4. Fall Activities in Saint Michaels: After your round of golf, spend the rest of your afternoon in downtown Saint Michaels enjoying the shopping, dining, and even seasonal festivals. Check out the Fall into Saint Michaels Festival this October.

5. Waterfront Golf Experience: Fall is the perfect time to experience our award-winning course. Designed and built by the legendary golf course architect Pete Dye. Playing to a par 70, our Golf Course has many Pete Dye trademarks. Narrow fairways with target landing areas, carefully placed mounds in the rough, deep bunkers, high grass bunkers, neat little ponds, walls of railroad ties, and small protected greens are just a few of the highlights of this extraordinary course.

Golf Course in the FallWhether you’re looking for a golf getaway with your buddies, or a romantic weekend, Harbourtowne and Saint Michaels are the perfect fall getaway.

Pete Dye – Golf Architect Extraordinaire

Golf Course Pro John Mlynarski

Golf Course Pro John MlynarskiThe legendary Pete Dye, is a golfer turned golf architect as he fell in love with more than just the game. Although he was a champion golfer, Dye’s interest was really in the design and aesthetics of the course itself. He is a legend in the field of golf course design and construction throughout the expanding world of golf and has established a reputation for unique, environmentally friendly, and renowned, resort and public golf courses.

 

Golf Course in the FallInnovative and deeply inspired by his 1963 visit to Scotland, Dye has over 100 courses to his name, many of which have hosted numerous PGA TOUR and LPGA events. Some of his more notable courses include River Course at Black Wolf Run, Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, and Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Now in his 80’s Dye continues to deliver to golfers some of the most challenging courses in the world.

 

Built in 1971, the Harbourtowne golf course is an 18-hole, Par 70 course on theDCP_1583 Chesapeake Bay waterfront. Harboutowne’s course is not unlike other Dye courses in that it incorporates some of the elements which are so characteristic of Dye. Trademark elements include high grass, deep bunkers, walls built of railroad ties and carefully constructed rough. The first nine holes are fairly wide open with bordering out of bounds residences, some water hazards and tall grass, while the back 9 are rather tight and tree-lined. Whether a rookie or golf pro, this course is sure to provide a fun yet challenging round of golf.

There’s still time to take advantage of Harbourtowne’s winter golf rate and experience Dye’s work firsthand. From now until 4/21/13, purchase an off season golf package for $199.98 per person for 2 nights, 3 days in a waterfront guest room, 3 rounds of golf with cart, continental breakfast and gratuity each morning. Visit the website for more information.
