Eighteen-hole Scottish-links layout is a challenge due to water on 13 holes, small greens and the presence of sand bunkers at every hole.

Tricky but fun golf course, Thank God the greens weren't overly fast. Would like to lay it during the summer.

A relatively benign looking course (aren't they all) but the various false fronts, sides and backs around the green keep it challenging for golfers of all levels. A beautiful peaceful environment with an extremely friendly and helpful staff. Lots of history and great photos in the clubhouse. As an added bonus you never know if a former President may stop...

Have played here quite a few times, including once when Bush Sr. was in office and came out to play the day we were there. Terrific, shortish track that is a very fair but challenging course with great marsh views from many/most holes. Sometimes difficult to get a tee time on weekends in particular.

On a Sunday afternoon I went out alone to Arundel with a carry bag and small array of clubs. The pro set me up with a couple who were members. The course was in good shape, the weather was great and it was quite playable. The round was going well (one over for the 1st five holes) when we noticed... More

I love old style golf courses. Built in 1896, just outside of Kennebunkport, ME, Cape Arundel's undulating greens offer a challenging putting test. The course from the back tee's plays right at 5859 yards for a par 69. Only one par 5--#9. This course, where Presidents play, is no push-over. Its quirky layout--remember its over 100 years old--adds to it... More

Course was in excellant condition; greens challenging and true, fairways twisting and turning through beautiful grounds and water. Members were friendly, helpful and welcoming.....a great round of golf!

Nice short (6000 +/-) yard Semi-private, historic golf course. Lots of water and nice greens. Nice little course to play while visiting Kennebunkport, ME. The past President Bush’s play here during the summer months while in the area. A no frills course, but you will enjoy it!

Cape Arundel is not a modern course with all the amenities. There is a small clubhouse and pro shop but there is no food service (at least on the Saturday we were there) and no bar! The 19th hole is usually what I need after the way I play the first 18! However, the course is historic even though it... More

It has become a semi-public course. It's a very narrow course so it's often hard to tell where your green is and where the next hole is.
