Par for the Course: Bridgton Highlands boasting new look, less trees

...The new look is part of an overall plan of the ownership, general manager Jim Mains, the course management group of Dan Hourihan, and superintendent George Thomas. Their goal was to open the course and make it more playable.

For years, Bridgton Highlands has been known as a target course with narrow, tree-lined fairways. Trees still exist on the course, but players can see from one fairway to the next, which was just about impossible in past years.

Mostly, this is the work of Thomas, who claims to be the only superintendent in Maine to possess a master's degree (from Penn State) in "turf/grass management." He estimates that approximately 1,000 trees have been removed from the course since his arrival. He is in his third Bridgton Highlands season. There also is more than 600 feet of drainage pipe in the course, which runs up and down a hillside.
