Mohegan Sun versus Foxwoods?
Ultimately, the choice is yours. The difference is the gaming package...

- Mohegan Sun requires a minimum of 5 hours and gives everyone a $30 gaming package every day.
A “Players Choice”… this voucher is good for 'food' anywhere at Mohegan Sun or for 'retail' good at any shop or store at Mohegan Sun or a free bet. These are truly free bets.

the Departure Time?

operate. They make no exceptions for a group. If we miss our tee-time
it will throw off the whole day.

problems in the past the following will be strictly enforced:
- Alcohol may
be brought by the group but cannot be brought up from the luggage
bays on the motor coach until departure from the course.

or rowdy persons prior to or at any time during the trip can be
refused boarding or removed from the course or the entire trip
in the parking lot or stuffing golf bags with beer/alcohol is
prohibited. Each golf course has a state issued Alcohol Beverage
license and this activity puts the license in jeopardy.

there are beginner-golfers with the group, they should be paired
with an experienced golfer to help them with the rules of the game,
course etiquette, speed of play, enjoyment of the day and it will
keep the course happy.
