I've played Sable Oaks several times during previous visits to southern Maine and enjoyed the experience every time. Although the course is not long (6359 from the tips), it demands accuracy and precision to keep big numbers off the card. It was carved from wooded and hilly terrain and provides a variety of challenges: many tight fairways, several forced carries... More

Had a foursome go there for 18 holes and played there on Sunday. 6/14/2013. It took us 3 hrs and 45 mins to finish 9 holes. For what is supposed to be a premier golf course, there wasn't a starter controlling the start . At the club house we were informed that it was 'cart path only' on the course....... More

The meal was fine but the service was slow slow slow. An hour and a half from start to finish. The waitress just disappeared and we finally went to find her!

I have played this course 10-12 times and when I finish I always have the same thought...this is not a difficult course, but I seem to make it one. There are some deep valleys you need to be aware of when hitting your second shot to an appealing open green and low and behold the ball is in the valley.... More

Found the golf course to be challenging yet fun. You get a chance to use every aspect of your game. Course was in really good condition with an accessible club house. I did have one issue. I unknowingly drove my cart across the fairway on a day when carts were to stay on the cart path only. I was hollered... More

I've played almost every course in Greater Portland, and Sable Oaks is notoriously one of the more difficult. They do a good job keeping it in shape, and the clubhouse bar has good sandwiches and an okay beer selection. The course will have you use every club in your bag, and if you don't hit it straight, every ball you... More

Some great holes on this course. The course will punish you if you don't hit the fairways. Take advantage of the easier holes because especially on the front nine because there are some virtually impossible holes on the back nine.

Narrow fairways and when you hit it into the rough, you almost always must declare it lost. Lots of elevation change, and on many holes, you have to hit over a hazard and uphill, so you can't see your landing point. A pretty little 18-hole near the airport. Staff were friendly and courteous. Practice green but no driving range.
