The Salmon Falls Country Club is holding a grand opening for their new pro shop this Memorial Day weekend May 28, 2016 through May 30, 2016. The country club will be holding drawings for a set of golf clubs, rounds of golf, and pro shop gift certificates.
The new pro shop is only a small part of the renovations to Salmon Falls under the new ownership of Steve Armstrong.
Armstrong, a longtime summer resident of the area, says “I have been coming here since I was a kid and I’ve always dreamed of owning something like the country club.”
Armstrong is bringing more than his enthusiasm to the property. His personal and family resources are financing much of the extensive renovation of the buildings and the course. The renovations started with the complete removal of the old clubhouse with the exception of the foundation and the rooms it contained. A new wooden structure with soaring roof lines provides a much better “Maine” feeling than the previous building.
The old motel is slated for demolition next with plans for a two or three storey hotel being considered. Poland Springs has expressed an interest in housing visitors in the hotel if it were built, according to Armstrong.
Many of the plans for the property, such as a restaurant, are still being formulated, but the golf course is already getting its improvements under the direction of Building & Grounds Superintendent Matt Teneyck. First time visitors from Templeton, Massachusetts, Ron and Kathy Davis commented “The greens are in great shape. You can see that they are putting money into the course.”
Armstrong and clubhouse manager Jeanne Martin invite the public to attend, “The grand opening [is one of the ways] that we hope to bring in people to see the improvements that we are making to Salmon Falls.”
