Sugarloaf Mountain holds inaugural Sugarloaf Masters

Sugarloaf Mountain MINNEOLA, Fla. – The scenic views at Sugarloaf Mountain Golf & Town Club welcomed 20 Orlando-area PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour golfers for the club’s inaugural “Sugarloaf Masters” tournament Wednesday.

Chris DiMarco, who turned professional in 1990 and was in the Official World Golf Rankings top 10 for more than 50 weeks between 2002 and 2006, emerged as inaugural champion with a 5-under-par 67.  DiMarco also hosts his own golf radio show on XM Radio.

Fulton Allem and Garrett Willis each carded a round of 68 and tied for second place.

Willis, known for winning his first PGA Tour start – an accomplishment he shares with Sugarloaf Mountain co-architect Ben Crenshaw, represents Sugarloaf Mountain on the PGA Tour.

Other professional golfers who filled the tournament roster included Robert Damron, Lee Janzen, Brian Gay, Ryuji Imada and Dean Pappas.

The professional golfers were among the very first to play the new Sugarloaf Mountain course in Minneola, Fla., designed by the famed Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore design team.  The course is part of a master-planned community developed by LandMar Group and operated in a partnership between Hampton Golf, Inc., and LandMar.

Sugarloaf Mountain Golf and Town Club is the first Coore & Crenshaw designed course in Florida.  Nestled on the peninsula’s highest point of elevation, the course follows the natural features of the land and highlights Coore & Crenshaw’s signature emphasis of strategic concepts meshed with simplistic design.

Sugarloaf Mountain is located in Lake County west of Orlando.  Lake Apopka and lush oak forests provide for beautiful rural scenery at a convenient distance from Orlando’s many attractions.  For more information about Sugarloaf Mountain Golf & Town Club, call (407) 544-1104, or visit www.hamptongolfclubs.com.
