Amputee Association of Maine Golf Tournament

We are expecting amputees and friends from around the US and Canada.  The Gorham Savings Bank Maine Amputee Open is a 36 Hole Stroke play event run by the Maine State Golf Association and the Amputee Association of Maine.  We are a tournament for amputees and able-bodied golfers with an overall champion and able bodied and amputee winners.

We hope that golfers from away will use the Scramble to play Val Halla prior to the Maine Amputee Open.  For our friends in Maine the scramble is an easy, convenient way to support the Amputee Association of Maine www.amputeeassociatinofmaine.org  while having fun with friends, clients and co-workers.

In conjunction with the tournament, the Amputee Association of Maine and Maine Adaptive Sports & Recreation www.maineadaptive.org are once again sponsoring a free Adaptive Golf Clinic from 1 – 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 11th at Val Halla. Register at www.maineadaptive.org

Maine in August is spectacular, and the greater Portland area combines the rocky coast with woods and mountains along with the world-class restaurants of one of the most livable cities on the east coast.  We hope you will arrive in Maine to spend some time before the tournament or stay and visit after. One important thing to consider is that Maine is a very popular place in the summer, and you will want to make your lodging plans early.

The Ramada Inn at 155 Riverside St. in Portland, ME will be serving as our host hotel. Please call them at 207-774-5861 for reservations.

The hotel is about a 20-minute drive from the course and 15 minutes from the Old Port section of Portland. Rooms are reserved at a reduced rate. In addition, there are a variety of hotels, motels and B&B’s within 30 minutes of the Val Halla Golf Course in both urban and small-town settings.
