Course is in good shape. Greens are very tricky. Play with a local so you'll know. Cost is fair but their rental clubs are very pricey, so you need to bring your own.

Can you plan a course with lots of hill? Do check this one out for the view as well as the challenge. Ask what president needed about 20 swings to reach the green on the back nine.

One of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses you will ever find. The views are beautiful and the staff is wonderful. The Pro, Peiter DeVos, is one of the best for the area.

A gorgeous, really old course where it's hard to concentrate on the game with the scenery shrieking "look at me!" But the course plays charming tricks - a rocky rill tossed my ball onto the green, and a huge pine tree deflected one drive to...More

The golf course itself is very well manicured as groundskeepers were busy on multiple holes maintaining its beauty and are courteous to players when on the tees and greens. Kebo Valley provides a great backdrop to the scenic mountains of Acadia National Park and it's...More
