Join the Women in Family Business from the Institute for Family-Owned Business (IFOB) for this customized series that includes six (6) sessions of instruction and golf with twelve (12) total hours of instruction and golf, greens fees & cart fees, and complimentary beverage (wine or beer) after golf.
Back by popular demand, we'll be led by Matt Gaynor and Nonesuch’s new PGA professional, Jim Fairbanks. We’ll break into small groups based on your ability from beginner to expert and work on techniques to hone your skill at whatever level. If you have clubs, please bring them, if not, we will have plenty to choose from. Afterwards there will be plenty of time for networking and refreshments.
The goal of this program is to offer instruction, golf and understanding of the game in a fun and social environment. One-on-one instruction will be available both on the golf course and driving range and will be set up to meet the specific needs of all individuals.
The 203-acre facility in Southern Maine features a meticulously maintained 18-hole public championship golf course, a modern 2,500 square-foot clubhouse, a full-size practice range and two putting greens, as well as a golf academy with professional PGA Instruction. Their staff is experienced, friendly, and professional.
The club’s namesake, The Nonesuch River, runs directly through the golf course property, creating “wetland areas” which support a variety of plant and animal species. Their maintenance philosophy is to continue to provide an ongoing, thriving wildlife habitat throughout the wetlands and forested areas. Nonesuch is unique in that there is no development on the golf course except for the clubhouse and golf-related amenities. It is truly a golf course situated in its natural environment.

On Saturday, August 19th the Tate House Museum will be hosting a living history day with Fletcher’s Scouting Company from 10 AM until 4PM. This day long event is free and will appeal to adults and children of all ages.
Fletcher’s Scouting Company is a living history reenactment group dedicated to educating the public by demonstrating and interpreting military history, equipment skills and experiences of the original English forces in what was the Province of Maine in the 18th century. There will be equipment displays, a musket demonstration and personal stories of Fletcher’s Scouting Company members. This year’s focus will be on what was then called Falmouth, later Portland, and surrounding communities during the French and Indian War which continued during the early years of the Tate family presence in Stroudwater. They also will give a perspective as to what it was like to carry on the gathering of "mast trees" during this time of conflict in the area. Michael Dekker, author of French and Indian Wars in Maine, will be part of the scouting group that will camp on the grounds of the Tate House Museum. Michael will be available to discuss his book and scouting during this interesting time in colonial history.
