On-Course Drinking Water Notice

Due to the risk of potential health/hygienic concerns, Sagamore no longer offers communal water cooler stations on the golf course.

If you forget to bring your own water, please know that you will have the following options available to help keep hydrated:

  • Our Snack Bar offers a wide variety of beverage options
  • We offer a nice, cold (and free!) water via our water fountain in our clubhouse, which golfers can use any time to fill water bottles
