Country Club Golf in Maine Is a Greener Than Green Experience.
Mountain vistas, ocean views and lush forests are all part of the package for members of country clubs in Maine. This state has more than 120 golf courses, with a couple dozen built in the past several years. The best of the best are private and semi-private with new golf communities along luxuriant fairways.
But as always in Maine, when new developments come along, extra care is taken to preserve the look of the land. If you’re seeking country club golf with a classic New England-style, you’ll find it here.
Among golf designers in Maine: Donald Ross, Robert Trent Jones Jr., George and Jim Fazio, and the New England firm of Cornish & Silva.
Golf communities are on the move in Maine
Several new golf developments have been launched recently here. The new Old Marsh Country Club in Wells has a layout by Brian Silva and a community of new houses. Also visit the Sunday River Golf Club in Newry with a course honored by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. Other classic clubs are Penobscot Valley in Orono and Boothbay on the coast. Very private communities surround the Falmouth Country Club and Woodlands Club near Portland.
