Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug Reopens after Upgrades
After being closed last season for extensive course-wide enhancements, Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug in Uncasville, Conn., will reopen this month.
In addition to major modifications to the course, clubhouse and pro shop, the facility has a new golf professional, Andrew Ouellet. The course will reopen for play in mid-May, with a special private grand opening set for Saturday, June 9th.
The course remodel by Northeast Golf Company's Robert McNeil involved all new greens, redesigned bunkers and an additional 125 yards. Some of the most noticeable changes include the complete rebuilding of five holes, including the par-5 sixth that now stretches 495 yards from the tips and involves an approach shot over a water hazard with a waterfall.
The clubhouse also underwent renovations, including remodeled banquet spaces. The facility can host events with up to 175 guests.
Ouellet, a graduate of Methodist University with a B.S. in Business Administration and Financial Economics, brings experience in golf management, teaching and mentoring, and coordination of large tournaments. He previously had assistant pro positions at Lakewood Country Club in Colorado, Minocqua Country Club in Wisconsin, the Orchard's Golf Club in South Hadley, Mass., and Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow, Mass. Ouellet was a finalist for the "2011 Connecticut Section Assistant Golf Professional of the Year" award.
