Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27, is a great way to kick off the summer at Skytop Lodge.

Surrounded by stunning mountain vistas, Skytop’s 18-hole championship golf course features 6,656 yards of golf that tests all levels of play through rolling hills, open meadows, waterfalls, mountain streams and woodlands. The course has a rating of 72.0 and a slope rating of 133, which distinguishes it as a challenging course since an average course usually has a rating of 117. “The small greens are what make it more of a difficult course to score on,” said Skytop’s Director of Golf and Head Professional, Brian Boyle. “It puts a premium on a golfer’s chipping and putting.”
