Golfing

With more than 115 public-access courses in the state, Maine is the best kept golfing secret in the Northeast. From small seaside tracks to majestic mountaintop layouts, you won’t find more diversity, nor better quality, anywhere in New England.

From York to Fort Kent, Maine offers a wide variety of golf opportunities. For students of the game, a handful of courses date back to the turn of the 20th-century, when golf in America was in its infancy. Several more have received national recognition as some of the best golf venues in the country. Others are enjoyed nearly exclusively by Maine locals, and have garnered that mystical “hidden gem” status. Regardless of skill level or interest, there is something here for everyone.

Following your round, take advantage of local attractions be it boating, touring or enjoying a Maine lobster or local microbrew. Many inns and hotels offer golf packages.

Following is a list of some of Maine’s 18 hole venues. A more complete list is available on our website or on the travelMAINE mobile app at gotravelmaine.com.
