Finding this place at night time is a little difficult. I am glad I had a GPS. I went for someone's 35 anniversary party. Excellent food and nice homey atmosphere.

Wife and I had the opportunity to play Kebo Valley on our recent trip to Bar Harbor. Course is everything that most other reviews say … has some of almost everything … hills (some quite steep), long par 4s, short par 4s, short par 5s, longish par 5s, short par 3s that seem to play longer and longer par 3s...

Good food at great prices. The view is perfect. Eighth oldest golf course in the US. Locals told us about the club as an eating option.

Happy to have found Kebo from the Forelinksters.com guide to the best public golf courses. It's an interesting history as the 8th oldest golf club in America, but the course features are the star here. Drivable par 4's, the par 5's reachable in two, blind shots and doglegs, small, devilish greens, all extremely well conditioned at a favorable greens fee.

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.

I play Kebo each summer I visit Bar Harbor in prime season; otherwise, I play the NE Harbor private course before Memorial Day or after Labor day...much cheaper and just as much fun. To me the first nine is easier than the second. Hint: drive your cart down the fairway to see the green on those blind shots. You pay... More

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.

First trip to Bar Harbor and a friend strongly recommended I play the Herbert Leeds course. Very well conditioned and enjoyable. Good layout with numerous blind shots and plenty of movement in the greens. Second trip round the course would be much easier. The pro and staff were extremely helpful with tee time and rentals. Played late Saturday in 2... More

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.
