Mohegan Sun Golf Club is a private 18-hole championship golf course that has been recognized statewide for its impeccable greens and lavish fairways. Renowned Architect Geoffrey Cornish, who has designed more golf courses in New England than any other architect, designed the club. A renovation in 2002, by Architect Steven Kay, resulted in several new teeing areas and the most playable bunkers in southern New England. Further enhancements were made for the start of the 2012 season by Northeast Golf Company’s Robert McNeil, equipping the course with all-new greens, five rebuilt holes and 125 yards of extra distance.
